    Strange RPM surge

    That smoke rig is awesome. I need to know how you did it.

    Snapped spring...

    I’m just trying to work out why it was such a struggle.

    Where did you remove the control arms from? The hub or the subframe?

    Had the battery registered. The BMW Indy was 99.9% confident that the problem I had were because of low battery voltages. Car seems all ok. Fingers crossed.

    Ahhhhhhh yeah! Of course. The battery is different as well. It’s a higher amp battery. That makes sense.

    Cheers boys but it was checked and it was normal. Had a battery fitted and all seems ok. I don’t have to use my car for 2 weeks now because I’m working away and work have given me a hire car. So I’ll take that time to get it collected by the local BMW superman and see what he thinks when he gets it plugged in to hi software. Times like these I wish I lived closer to @GoNz0 because he’s the man when it comes to the software.

    Second hand engine check?

    Can’t the DVLA give you the vehicle details that are linked to that engine number?

    RAC came out. Battery was dead and now wouldn’t even crank. He jumped it and it came to life and was running as normal. Ran a full battery and charge diagnostics and said the battery was within normal parameters but only just. I opted for a new battery anyway because clearly I have money to burn and a so what attitude figured it would settle my mind. new battery is on and I’ve just arrived home after doing a 45 mile journey completely off motorway and have had no faults until I arrived at my destination. I removed all the stuff from my boot which was open for about 10 mins. Got in the car and got another increased battery discharge warning. Clocks all reset.
  9. I’ve broke down. Yesterday I got a warning about a gear selector fault on the idrive which happened twice but cleared. Did a very short journey and the car sat at the caravan for the rest of the day and might. Loaded the car up today ready to leave site and it struggled to start and wouldn’t run longer than a few second. This repeated then I got a engine management light come on. Gutted.

    M57 engine mounts recommendation

    Yeah I was very much relieved. Onto pulleys and belts next.

    M57 engine mounts recommendation

    Turned out to be a problem with the exhaust. It was twisted and causing a vibration
  12. My car is in the garage today for what I believe to be either dodgy engine mounts or crank pulley problem. if the garage rings me and says it’s the engine mounts what make do people think I should go with?

    Water in the boot again

    Confused about this to be honest. I don’t actually know what they are doing. I sealed around it where it fits to the body from the inside. I’m even more confused, I sealed the vent that is in the boot from the inside? Guess I’m doing it wrong. The water was in the black tray above the battery, there is no water anywhere else. Would the siren cause this? How do I seal it?

    Water in the boot again

    That’s the one I did mate yeah. Whether it actually sealed it tho is the thing I suppose. Going off memory the tow bar electrics are all wrapped together with the main loom for the other modules. Where they leave to go outside the car I’m not sure about but I remember the wiring going to the left side of the car not the right towards the battery. I’ve only got a 7 pin so it’s only feeds for the lights and a little module wired in that tells the car that something is connected up to it. I’ll have a look tho.

    Water in the boot again

    Hi guys. I have water in the boot again. I’ve previously (about 2 months ago) pulled the crimped ends of the sunroof drains out and cleared the pipes, resealed the rear light (maybe I should get a new seal) and sealed the vent. Anything I might be missing? No water in the battery compartment and I’ve moved all the modules from the place they normally sit so they are safe. The water is only where that black tray is behind the panel.
