  1. Mintex used to be good, I would rate Pagid over them every day of the week. Mintex went the same was as Brembo, cheap products hiding behind a brand name.

    8.1 litres on my M57. G48 can mix with tap water so I flush with a hosepipe, it leaves some water in but I don't worry about that. I put 4.1L of concentrating straight in then top off with deionised.

    Did you use any primer? I'm going to do that on the window buttons and start button surround

    First time brake pad change

    ATE brake pad grease is the best, sliders on these cars despite anyone else's opinions are specified as dry by both ATE and BMW. Also, consider removing the slider rubbers and honing the bore of any corrosion as that can press on the bush that in turn causes a sticky slider. Sliders can be cleaned with a copper brush. I use this to hone the bore as it is half the price buying the same item with ATE branding. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DB89FCC/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_10?smid=A2KVF7QXNCLV8H&psc=1 Do the job right the 1st time and it will prevent the discs warping.

    BMWDOCTOR N53 review

    The guy is a massive bell end, some of the shit he comes out with and the way he repairs some stuff is unbelievable.

    Belts and pulleys

    I fitted Gates, the bearings were INA from memory on some of them or was it the tensioner? Either way, it is a top quality kit.
  11. Sorry m8 all I do is see how much gas is recovered on my annual checkup.

    Bought it from Lithuania, he is selling them fully refurbished. The rubber coating has been removed and I think some form of blasting has been done to give it a texture. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E60-E61-E63-E64-M-Sport-Steering-Wheel-With-Paddle-Shifters-Vibro/143506092415?

    It's lci. As I put in previous posts I already fitted the sport shifter and flashed the sat software, this was the final thing to do. If you press a paddle it goes into manual mode, if you go out of the rev range it should drop back to auto. I've not been out in it due to the rush hour traffic! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
