    Have the Stealers earned their name again?

    Ouch! Is the micro filter different on a G30? Not carbon but gold? £90 just for 5.2 litres of oil! I am sorry but they will buy it in bulk and be making huge profits. I guess you are paying for a premium brand and a premium service. They do give you a nice coffee.

    N47 engine issues

    I am following this thread. Car dealers have us over a barrel as how long can you go without your car? Mine has been in for the wheels to be refurbished for 2 days and I have so missed it.
  3. Has he checked the codes? Pending code for ride height sensor?

    F10 LCI Vibrations at 70mph

    Does it go when you go past 70? Is it the whole car? You can get a passenger to sit in different seats and see if the vibration is worse in any corner. Suspects would be:- Prop shaft related Drive Shaft (would be one side) Wheel out of balance Wheel bearing Suspension issue

    N57 timing chain....my experience

    I think this is the only way to do a DIY chain change without a lift. Disconnect the GB from underneath and disconnect/remove engine ancillaries and hoist it out from above.

    Power Steering

    Its an electronic system so no fluid for hydraulics.

    Good Oil Offer on

    That's a very good deal! Works out approx 40p a litre cheaper. If you have the space you can just keep that and do 3 changes.

    Belt Drive-Vibration Damper..... :(

    Quick look on tinterweb and quite a range of prices and brands. Continental one £260 good bet. Fibi more expensiive at £380.

    Belt Drive-Vibration Damper..... :(

    I have had that happen on my van. New bolts and damper required. They are sometimes called harmonic dampers. I think in this instance you might be best getting the damper from BMW but any garage can fit it. I wouldnt get a motor factors damper unless it is a well known main brand.

    Quite common on the manual and probably some wear in the DMF/GB. My old manual had a little vibration.

    Sport button

    The sport button mainly changes the response of the auto gearbox which is electronically controlled. The manual has a lever and no electronic control.

    Rear Air Suspension

    If you have both go down at the same time it is worth checking the relay for corrosion. It is a known fault, as it is located near to the battery in the boot. If it gets wet you get a similar fault to yours. If one bag goes, you tend to notice it drop on that side. I would not go near a stealer for such a job. I had one bag starting to drop so I replaced with a Dunlop bag. Took me thirty minutes to replace using the guide from here.

    Turning off the traction control by mistake...

    I thought that if you pop it into sport mode, it not only sharpens the gear changes, reduces the number of available cogs and also reduces stability nanny control but switches on the wife assist?
