    Tyre choice

    What are your tyres of choice? Mid range? Premium? Are there any that especially suit the e60?

    Xhp flash

    I was wondering if my box would benefit from a flash? Had it serviced last spring- matters improved - but sometimes I think that the box is holding the car back. Anybody had this done? Is there anybody around Liverpool / Manchester that could do this?

    Abrupt downshifts

    I had the box serviced in april on my 545 - it eliminated the harsh shifts when cold. However I now have another issue - if you take your foot off the accelerator the gear change down is very abrupt and certainly very noticable. Anybody had anything similar?

    Brake caliper types

    I need new rear pads and discs for my 545. It would appear there are different caliper types - I cannot see a manufacturer on mine only two numbers Can anybody tell me what type of caliper I have? I assumed it would be an ate.

    Adaptive headlight fault

    Thread resurrection? Has anybody fitted an after market part? I have no idea how much a new OE item is - I had to go to main stealers for a coolant hose - they struggled to find the correct part due to the cars age and told me that they don't really sell much for z car my age. Plenty of used parts for sale but you don't know if they are any good

    Window anti trap

    I had my e60 nearly three years - in that time I have had the rear window anti trap warning along with the orange triangle. Both rear windows go up and down in stages - looking in the internet there are various ways to reset them - however I have never been able to reset them. The rear windows have been tinted and I wonder if this has anything to do with it? Anybody else have the same issue?

    Coolant change

    I will be changing the oil on my 545. The coolant is weak - is there anything I need to watch for if I drop that as well? My concern is a lack of temp gauge and 17 year old fixings. Is there any procedure for refilling the system?
  12. A diagnostic has flagged up A589 communication with stepper motor impaired - live data shows the voltage going to the right side headlight - the near side has nothing. Is it likely to be the controller under the light? If so is it plug and play?

    545 coolant tank

    The float on the old one was broken when I bought the car. The new one has the float, cap and sensor.
