    Looking to get a E61...Guidance?

    If you have a look for my post "A brief guide to 2.0d ownership" there are more pictures to put you off! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Beware 2.0d! And then after all that the oil pump failed, not the infamous timing chain. It had 170k on it with full history when this happened. Ended up with a second hand engine which we did the chain and clutch on before fitting it. Manifolds crack, egr/dpf issues( now deleted on mine). Some don't like the manual and they can be cheaper to buy. Average around 50-52 mpg mixed use with mine Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Android upgrade

    Been looking at the idea for a while. Has anybody used Bayernmods for the unit? Price seems quite good but would like to hear from someone who has fitted one before I go ahead. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Tyres

    Forgot to add, must be at least a C rating on grip and economy. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Tyres

    Anyone recommend some decent tyres? 225/50 17. Don't like runflats at all. Also not a Pirelli fan. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Help Please - M47 520D lost power now wont start

    I would suggest it looks like a timing issue as it seems to be getting fuel judging by the smoke. If it is, I hope you have deep pockets! I know from past experience. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Who else is considering selling there 5?

    Did exactly that when I bought my 520d. Had spent 3 years sorting my Merc then got bored. Biggest mistake ever! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    BMW E60 intake manifold differences

    Hi, had a similar problem with mine last year. The BMW guy I used said that the manifold are model specific to the E60/61 unfortunately. I managed to get a good secondhand one but as you say, they are more expensive than the others. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
  12. Do you need to replace the loom or can it just be extended? I'm ok with soldering. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
  13. The link is dead it seems. Any ideas where I might get it? Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
  14. As above, my heated screen doesn't work, so guessing it's the loom in the hinges. Any links to how to do it and parts needed etc? Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
