    Lock up your cats?

    Some vehicles are more of a target as the CAT is easy to access. I wnt to collect a Ford Ranger from a dealer in Southampton to go to auction. Started it up and realised the cat was missing. When they checked 8 had been taken ! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    E61 buyers guide??

    If you are thinking 2.0d then have a look at my post, A brief guide to 2.0d ownership. It gives you an idea of the worst that can happen, bearing in mind I bought it on the strength of the timing chain having been done by BMW only 20k earlier. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
  3. Is it possible to replace the battery in these keys? Also, I only have the 1 key. Any suggestions on where to get a spare and how much? Thanks Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    In that case, I think a more in depth investigation is required. Is it a similar system to my old Mercedes where you still have springs but the air bags do the levelling? The Merc was hydraulic and messy when it failed!!! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Thinking about it still, do all E61's have rear air suspension or was it optional? Still finding it very wayward at speed. Wondering if the shocks are worn out. It has done 174,000 miles ! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    I have known that before. I had new drive tyres on my truck at work (Michelins) and they made it frightening to drive for about a week! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Only other thing is front tyres are run flats rears are not. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    No, tracking is good. Even wear on the front. Tyre pressures also good. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    So, hot on the heels of the engine issues, now resolved, comes my new problem! I noticed the car being very unsettled and thought it was down to worn rear tyres. Had them done and it's no better. On the motorway today at about 80mph I went to change lane and the car suddenly felt like it was about to go into a spin to the extent it put the traction control light on. Around town it feels fine but in a straight line at any sort of speed it does not fill me with confidence. I'm guessing at maybe subframe bushes but any other ideas?

    Depends if your engine is salvageable. Otherwise there will be a surcharge Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    I went down that route. Not a chain failure on mine but oil pump then crank. Got a 70k engine complete with all ancillaries, new chains fitted and new clutch as it seemed silly not to. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Have a look at my posts regarding 2.0d ownership. It can be expensive! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Bluetooth music

    The Grom stuff looks good. Anyone actually got it set up in their car? I see they also do a DAB add on. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
