    Used F10 - M sport - high or low mileage??

    I own a 65 plate 530d luxury with quite a lot of extras that I will be looking to sell soon. Pm if that is something that you might be interested in. Cheers
  7. Had my f10 f30d serviced, MOT and EGR cooler replaced today at BMW Boston. I drove from Leicester as BMW boston did an excellent job last year lobbying BMW for the full cost of replacing an instrument cluster. They saved me thousands so felt i owed them, hence the journey. No real complaints really apart from not hoovering my car and not cleaning sills when washing the car!

    rubber mats advice?

    I may be asking a rhetorical question so forgive me! Can any of you recommend good quality rubber mats or does it have to be genuine ones to get the kind of quality we want. I have some non genuine ones, but they curl up at the ends and the ones at the back keep on moving? i would want ones that have velcro on them so that they do not slip?
  9. I am in Leicestershire and could do with this feature being turned off, let me know if anyone nearby can help

    Display gone funny?

    Karma on my side. Bmw have offered to pay for the full cost of the replacement! Soooo relived I tell you. Hats off to Bmw boston for fighting my case!

    Quick update as promised folks. You were all correct, the main instrumental cluster has suffered electrical failure. The dealer has contacted bmw UK with a view to getting some. Goodwill. I am not hopeful at all and can't justify the 2k cost for the cluster unit. There are a number of places tht repair so that will be the option that I now pursue.

    525d, 3l or 2l?

    I have no experience of the 525d but I drove both the 520 and 530d before I settled on the 530d. The driving characteristics are very different indeed, the 530 behaves and drives like what a luxury saloon should. The creamy 6 cylinder engine is an absolute peach and when it comes to MPg the real world difference is actually negligible.

    On the way to bmw quite a long run and then the screen comes to life and does come on even though clearly corrupted. Have left it with them to diagnose.

    Booked in for Monday so will get an update. But this is interesting indeed- whilst the display was blank this morning, i did notice a bit of life (flickering) when i drove home back from work with the heating on- i could just about make out the faint lines of the speedo- so perhaps there is something that is heat related? hmmm
