    Please I need immediate help

    I'd contact 'Gonzo' on here. I use him for many E60 tasks and he travels. Work is first rate and his knowledge superb. Not bad rates either and worth every penny

    <£50 DAB/USB/AUX Solution

    Thanks man thats great. Mine has it as standard but totally wasted on me and I'm not sure Ive even used it. Nor the rear auto blinds or lane deviation haha As long as Ive got nav and bluetooth I'm happy and easily pleased!

    <£50 DAB/USB/AUX Solution

    Great write up and very useful for those wanting DAB Can I ask (as an out of touch 45yr old radio 4 bore) what's the big deal with DAB? What does it offer over standard FM? More stations? Better quality? TIA

    Recycling/Disposing of car fluids

    Just pour it all on the neighbours lawn when they are out
  6. Is there a chance when doing this update that it may also include a VW esque software fudge to improve emissions, have the egr working overtime and generally ruining throttle response whilst reducing fuel efficiency? Many VW/Skoda etc owners wish they'd never bothered.....worth finding out.

    My 400HP diesel

    Awesome! What work has been done to achieve that figure?
  8. Guys I feel compelled to recommend what is a 'come to you' expert that can complete work on your beloved (and sometimes troublesome) BMW E60/1 I contacted Gareth to ask for advice on a range of cetain jobs I was looking to complete as a preventative measure on my 2010 535d M sport - a few chats later and I was asking him if he'd consider me paying him to come to me and do the work such was his knowledge. Gareth came to me yesterday at the crack of dawn to undertake a long list of work - replacement of the following Update NAV/Maps Glow plug relay Glow plugs Turbo vac hoses Inlet manifold seals Main Stat EGR Stat Gearbox stat modification Full test When he arrived an unpacked it was clear I'd made the right decision - the chap is like a mobile BMW workshop differing only by the fact he actually knows what he's talking about! I'm someone who finds it hard to trust people to work on my cars as I always seem to find something lacking with many garages. That said, when peple do get it right and meet my expectations then I'm the first to voice up praise! So if anyone here needs any technical work completing right first time by someone with a thorough, methodical and sometimes frighteningly geeky level of knowledge then our resident forum member 'Gonzo' aka Gareth come highly recommended. Great price too! Hahaha just to add - it was after about an hour Gareth called me over to ask if I had any rust convertor liquid! Fearing the worst I raced over and asked why - he's undone a nut from the EGR valve that had some surface corrosion on and wanted it to go back treated!!! That made me smile with admiration and surprise!!

    BMW F10 M5. 2012. FBMWSH.

    Haha I initially thought the same too. It's how its placed as the bottom of the tailgate has a slight taper and gives that illusion. Ive googled other images and the same. I was still tempted to replace though

    E61 won,t unlock

    Id replace the battery then try again Failing that then take a look at the thread relating to the antenna/wiring on the e61 that fails and presents the problems you mention
