    Managed to wash my key fob...

    https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/wd-40-specialist-contact-cleaner-400ml-542772490?type=shopping&gclid=CjwKCAiAqIKNBhAIEiwAu_ZLDjEdXPJpyCYqUefKWVhscF8L5eW0xWc5z-lokOriblp1FNPlqAI3UhoCSDUQAvD_BwE This was the one I used. I get that, be upfront with him when you get there? Give the switch cleaner a go and see how you get on.

    Managed to wash my key fob...

    I done this with my F10 keys a few years ago, soaked the internals with switch cleaner and it came back to life. Hopefully you'll be lucky and that'll work. I wouldn't buy another key if you're trading it to be honest so long as you have two keys?

    Timing chain 2012 F11 520D

    £2k is a huge amount of money for a timing chain job, the engine doesn't need to come out either. I have a chap who's done two for me and three for friends and relatives for less than half the cost. Beauty with him is, he does it the same day and does all chains, tensioner, the works and provides a long warranty. Glad you've found someone at a more reasonable price.

    Rear spring price

    Hi Joe, Thanks for this. Without the spring pads how much would it ocost? Many thanks

    2015 i-Drive nav rebooting

    That's good news then, although paperwork did state only the headunit was updated due to a specific test procudue. Did ask for the map update, wasn't done, but again didn't get charged so no big issue. Plus for £69 getting all of the online benefits that it brings was worth it and updating is an easy task.

    2015 i-Drive nav rebooting

    Barretts BMW. To be honest they're not the most helpful of dealers any time I've put any car I've owned in there, although they sorted it and charged what I think a reasonable amount for doing so, so cannot grumble. We are currently having a debate as to whether a snapped rear coil spring should covered under the Comprehensive warranty, but that's another story. Nothing else to note to be honest, I think it may well have just been a software update just for the headunit. They didn't update the Sat-Nav maps, that was still on the 2015 version, however I paid for the connected services last night to get the update for £69 & the rest of the features it gives.

    Rear spring price

    Hi, could I have a price for an O/S/R spring & pads for a BMW F25, last 7 of chassis: #0K89854. Thanks in advance.

    2015 i-Drive nav rebooting

    All sorted - software update cured the fault - £140, pleased.

    I'm hoping that even if they suggest a new headunit I can get them to do the software update regardless. Fingers crossed.

    2015 i-Drive nav rebooting

    Thanks, Matthew. I've got that from them to be honest, I've relented and booked it in for next Wednesday. I mean if anywhere is going to do a software update, I'd rather just pay a bit extra and have a main dealer do it. They've said if they get certain fault codes they'll suggest a new headunit before doing anything else which isn't helpful. I've told them if it comes to an update to just do it, which with the diag work they said expect it to cost around £265 at most. This is a random one. I managed to be quick enough before it rebooted to see it's still on the 2015 maps version, although I don't know if anyone has tried updating it themselves. I only collected it yesterday. It's genuinely been to BMW for absolutely anything it has ever needed, the printout for visits is massively long, so I wouldn't have thought the previous owner would tried it.
  11. Have a 2015 X3 which reading on the internet uses the same system as the F10 with the business nav option. It keeps resetting every 30 seconds, which as I read on here is due to needing a software update. Called my local BMW dealer this morning who refused to do a software update without charging me £125 for a diagnosis first. Can anyone tell me is it just an i-Drive firmware update needed or a full i-Step level upgrade needed. Also need the Nav maps update which I'd like them to get done at the same time, however asking them for an update has just been met with a "no" essentially and I'd rather not pay £125 on top of the cost of an update.

    The story of E39 M5 AK03 DJJ (so far)

    What a great read. I think your attention to detail is brilliant.
  13. If he's offered to refund there's not much else you can do. He's made his position clear and effectively has offered to put you in the same position that you were in before, so you can't really grumble. I'd ask him if he's willing to get the work done himself (why didn't you take it back to him instead of BMW?), if not and you're not happy get your money back and move on. The fact used car prices have gone up is irrelevant, not the dealers issue to be honest.

    F10 door corrosion

    Hopefully I'll have the full doors painted and blended into rear 1/4's, either way to be honest I'm not too fussed, free paintwork is free paintwork, so long as everything is ok afterwards.

    F10 door corrosion

    To the people who have had this done, has the complete door been painted or just the top of the door where the corrosion is?
