    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    £32 for a new handle/switch surround, freshened it up I did order a new surround for the light switch/start button but the lad at Rybrook forgot to put it in the package so that will have to wait until Tuesday.

    Can't you get one of the longer cheap marquee tents to park under?

    Interior LEDs [White] ? More modern?

    I have never liked the cheap kits, I find the light blue and harsh so I wouldn't do it. I did last week buy a couple of Osram LED premium range in warm white and I am very impressed. They are brighter but not blinding. I ended up changing all 6 roof based W5W, both boot W5W and both the front door ones. I also fitted festoon versions to my sun visor lights and the footwell lights. Expensive but you pay for what you get, a good quality flicker free light that happily dims when told and has a 6 year warranty. https://www.osram.com/ecat/LEDriving PREMIUM W5W-LED interior lamps-Cars-Automotive Lighting/com/en/GPS01_1140185/PP_EUROPE_Europe_eCat/ZMP_1054686/

    Did you replace with a new OE leak off pipe yet?

    Charge-air pressure problems

    I got 3m of each Red/Blue/Black then you have enough of each. These are the gaskets I now use on customers cars. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELRING-Intake-Manifold-Gasket-Set-228-690/192819196190

    Charge-air pressure problems

    I've found the seals that come with the swirl kits are crap and now throw them away. I buy Elring seals and fit the blanks with instant gasket as they also leak after a year. 4mm id pipe doesn't have enough grip as the fittings are 4mm bits that's my opinion Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Get on the facebook groups m8, lots of late E61's with a snapped chain on the N47 engines come up, most business spec so black leather seats and door cards. I am picking up a set of seats and door cards tomorrow for a bargain price.

    E60 Wiper issues

    Are you 100% they did the relay, it's tucked away in the electrics box in the engine bay and costs close to £100. It sounds like the relay.

    Tyre pressures

    My E61 runs best at the suggested 2.5 bar front 3 bar rear. you need them hard to account for the softer sidewall on a big heavy car. I get really even tyre wear as well.

    Charge-air pressure problems

    Typical codes for vac issues, leaking like a sieve, slow pressure transducers and switchover valves. The cheap braided hose isn't very good but will do, otherwise pop onto Ramair's ebay store and order their 3mm silicon, you will need 6m but I buy red, blue and black as the 535 uses all 3, red for the front switchover, blue for the turbo one and black for the rest so you have plenty if you buy 9 meters.
