    Wow, that is a massive torrent! Whats ISTA-D and ISTA-P etc? Maybe I should get the slimmed down version?

    I'm very interested in this. This cable seems to have good reviews and I think it should work in my 2013 F10 yeah? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ENET-cable-suitable-for-BMW-F10-F20-F25-F15-F30-F01-F07-diagnostic-programming-/112075669336 Regarding the software, is this something I could get hold of please?

    Maybe so, either way they've looked after me and I can't say a bad word about them. I haven't had a bad experience ever at Nottingham Sytner, so I'll continue to use them rather than my local dealer.

    It was a wait yeah I agree, they would have been able to do it sooner had I not required a courtesy car, so it was partly down to me. Didn't really say why it was free, just said they'd contacted bmw to get it done under good will. I would have thought though that as part of the recall, they would have checked the valve? Because they clearly didn't or they would have surely seen it was faulty?

    Power delay!?

    Well I got the drive train warning a few days after getting it back. They were very good to be fair. Never attempted to charge me. I didn't really have to push. I just said since the recall work I've had the error, it didn't occur before.

    Power delay!?

    I had this over the last few weeks since I had the egr cooler replaced in the recall. I took it today and it was a faulty egr valve. It was sticking so causing the delay in power. I also had a drive train warning a few times.
  8. I had this in mine after the egr recall. It was fixed today and diagnosed as a faulty egr valve.

    Just a quick update to this topic. The car went in today and they diagnosed a faulty egr valve. Apparently it was my egr cooler that was replaced in the recall, not the valve, and the valve itself was faulty and sticking. They've replaced the valve today and not charged me a penny! Safe to say, I'm very happy with the outcome.

    Space Saver Spare Wheel Query

    Cheers for the reply! Very detailed and useful. I think if I ever had to use one of these, I'd be driving very slowly so wouldn't be driving it like i stole it haha. Regarding the TPMS, is this just to stop the warning's from appearing by resetting it? Finally, as long as I check that the tyre is 135/80, this should be fine for both my sets of wheels, including the staggered 18inch setup? Correct?
  11. Hi All, Just wanted to check something. I have 2 sets of wheels for my 520d. Summers which are the staggered 18" alloys now with none run flat Dunlops on them. Winters which are 17" and all the same size. Because of swapping the summers for none run flats, I'm preparing in advance for if I was to get a puncture. I've got a tin of repair foam, but also thinking that I should have a spare wheel too. I've found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/2011-2016-SPACE-SAVER-SPARE-WHEEL/dp/B075V3XVNW It claims to be ok for all sizes from factory, including 17 inch. So, would this be ok for my summers (with the staggered setup), as well as the 17 inch winters?! Cheers, Craig

    Got it booked in, but not for a while as they need it all day and I need a car. If it does happen again though, or remains on, or I notice anything, I've been told to ring them for a emergency appointment. I guess I'll see how it goes, they've got it on record now that I've had a problem from the recall and its booked in for inspection.

    And you'd expect this to be done without me paying yeah? Or am I going to paying for all of this?

    They said it needed replacing and they had it for 5 weeks as they were waiting for the part from Germany. I'm away this weekend so I'll see if I get the warning again and give them a ring if I do. I've not had it since. Wouldn't you have thought it would be there all the time?

    Is it more likely to be related to the recall as its drive train and not drive chain. Is that what your getting at?
