    2010 530d GT - Aircon/Cooling ??

    Try pressing the 'max' button and see what that does. Even if I've had the air con on my car set to 16 degrees in auto mode on a warm day as soon as I hit the max button there's a increase in cooling and fan speed. It's as though the air con has been designed to work as unobtrusively as possible untill maximim performance is called for. I just leave mine set to auto at around 22 degrees and never notice it.

    Thanks. I'll add them to my list of competent technicians

    Glad to see you've had some good news with this. Out of interest, whereabouts in Hillington did you take the car?

    The VIN decode would show S223A if you had it.

    Variable Damping Control. Stiffens or softens the shock absorbers. I have it on mine. I also have xenons and yes they're very good.

    Vin number and spec

    That's disappointing for you. Did you buy from a dealer or private sale?

    Fingers crossed for you. Show us some photos once you get the car back. Hope it's as nice a job as Lloyds did on mine.

    Vin number and spec

    We have an F20 120d sport which is 180BHP. I had the same confusion as you when I was checking the spec online. It was listed as 135 or so. Turned out it was 135kw but took me a while to figure it out.

    Pretty sure those are xenons yes. There's only one adjuster wheel next to the headlight switch which will be for the instrument lights. Non xenon models would have a headlight level adjuster there as well. Welcome to the forum Dave.

    Car sitting - not doing much....

    I know what you mean. I Drive my 530 everywhere and just about every day, so much that it gets easy to lose the appreciation of what a nice car it is. I had to drive a Honda Jazz courtesy car for a week while the 530 was having the rusty doors seen to. What difference. It's good to have a change once in a while and helps to keep appreciating what you have.

    Corrosion on F11 doors

    Have a really good look. It was only obvious on 3 of my doors. You had to look very carefully to see it on one of the back doors. It was only slightly visible on the front edge of the door and obscured completely when the front door was shut.

    Head Light Washer

    If both washers are on the same fuse you'll end up with no washers as well.

    Head Light Washer

    That's how it works on mine as well. No headlights on - no washers.

    F11 vibration when braking above 30/40mph

    Interesting to read the advice on how to treat new discs in the leaflet Brembo provide with theirs. There seems to be some difference of opinion between them and Moss. I'm not saying either approach is wrong, just different and wonder how the relative merits of each compare.
