    Non run flats.

    Changed the front Continental run flats for Kumho Ecsta PS71 non run flats and what a change to the car, tramlining has gone completely. Car just feels more planted to the road.

    Non run flats.

    Yes, that's what I'm doing at the moment.

    Non run flats.

    Tin of 500ml Holts tyreweld, I have a Ring tyre inflator and if I'm stuck break down cover, I've driven different cars for last 8/9 years that didn't have run flat tyres or a spare tyre, I'm sure it will be ok.

    Non run flats.

    They were down to just under 3 mm, I've thought that the cars ride even when the runflats were new was a bit off, tramlining over the slightest of ruts in the road.

  6. Where do people go to buy replacement parts, I'm after a rear propshaft coupling for my 530D and would like OEM but not at BMW dealer prices.

    Propshaft rear coupling

    Sorry the title is a bit misleading, it is the propshaft rear coupling, I've sourced a replacement. Thanks

    Propshaft rear coupling

    Funny thing is I've had no shudder or vibration, maybe just caught it before that starts mind you.

    Propshaft rear coupling

    Car was in for a service today and it was noted that the rear prop "doughnut" has a split in it. Ive seen online them being called Flex discs or Guibos.

    Wiper Blades for 2013 F10

    Same here, just waiting on a refund.
  14. Today I removed my Bluespark Pro + Boost Control unit and replaced it with a DTUK Crd3+ tuning box and a DTUK pedal box. Totally transforms the car, especially the pedal box.
  15. I've had my 4 year old used approved F10 530d MSport now for a year now and have my quote for extending the warranty, all these quotes are with £100 excess, £780 for comprehensive, £655 for named component or £519 driveline. Should I go for the warranty and if so which level of cover or just put money away each month. What's people's thoughts?

    BMW Insured Warranty, what to do?

    Good way of looking at it I suppose, £596 for the comprehensive with £250 excess.

    BMW Insured Warranty, what to do?

    Very true its a lot of money however I might sleep just a bit easier.

    BMW Insured Warranty, what to do?

    Cars done 40k although I've done 14k in the last year, it's got full main dealer service history, got loads of extras like the surround parking assist with the 5 cameras, electric towbar etc to be honest I think it's a no brainer just need some reassurance really.

    52.4 mpg

    Drove from Edinburgh to Kendal today, astonished at 52.4 mpg, 530D love this car.

    52.4 mpg

    Return journey today, kept it in comfort mode and didn't keep to speed limits this time, 44.3 mpg on the way back. All told I done 482miles and I've just filled it back up and it took £68.41, so roughly 41mpg. Happy with that.

    52.4 mpg

    Eco mode, stuck roughly to speed limits. Yes it was boring but was in no hurry.
