    Cheers eddier. All good information.

    Interesting. Is it expensive or hard to do? The halo's certainly look better as DRL's. Plus I've just installed expensive bulbs in the halogen dip, and the less hours I use them, the longer they should last.

    cheers Matthew . Looks like the daytime running lights are just the same as dipped lights then.

    And that's because it is already enabled! Just checked the car in the dark and the ambient lighting is along all four doors and in the door pockets. Nothing under the dash, which is probably why I haven't noticed it before! Menu says daytime running lights come on with switch on position ' A" bit mine seem to be dipped lights on "A".

    Yes, I know about the ambient lightening but it's shown on the Vin Decoder list but it doesn't show in the "Lighting" menu in the car. It just isn't there to enable.

    Good stuff. Wonder why the codes for my car in the Decoder show daytime running lights and ambient lighting when the are not available. The daytime running lights are ticked in the lighting menu but dont work on any of the light switch settings and the ambient lighting doesn't appear on the menu at all. The only time the halo's come on alone are in the "sidelight" setting on the switch.

    Had another go at the Decoder. According to the list, I have daytime running lights, which I have activated in the "lighting" section, but there are no daytime running lights? I also have ambient lighting code activated in the "light" menu, but it doesn't exist in the lights menu, Just daytime running lights (not working. "Home" lights (not working) I have welcome lights and they work, if that is the lights in the door handles and interior. Just spent half an hour in the car looking through various menu's. The last owner has left some interesting stuff on the HD, apart from a dubious taste in music. Contact names and details of several people, some on speed dial on the numbers on the radio control preselects!

    I think I did that with the decoder last year but I can't remember what I checked at the time. I'll give it another go.

    I'll have another few checks. with the washers with headlights on but I'm pretty sure they're not fitted. Surprised about the fog lights though. My missus had a little Skoda citigo and they have Gogs as standard. I have electric lumbar support on both front seats. Interestingly, I also have an electric rear blind! Nothing else out of the ordinary though. No stop/ start, no comfort/ sport suspension. I quite fancy the head up display. Had it on my DS 5 and really liked it. Not sure if I have any ambient lighting, must have a look.

    DoH! How stupid have you got to be? Put Headlights on, wash windscreen then check to see if lights are wet! It's an age thing. After suffering lockdown and getting bored, I started to browse Autotrader to see if an upgrade was affordable. Lots of 5 series seem to have no lumbar support seats and small screen sat nav. Am I imagining it or do some have no separate front fog lamps either? Sorry about the stupid questions but I've only just started looking and I'm not very familiar with what were options and what is standard.

    No Xenons I'm afraid.

    Would I be right in saying that all F10 models have the bumper cut outs for washers but not all have washers? How do I check? Last car had washers that came out on long stalks when the headlights were on and the windscreen was washed. If driving, you could see the water billowing over the car. Can't say I've actually used the washers with the headlights on so any info would be great.

    Silly question, but does my 520 D need add blue or some kind of fuel additive? All my diesel cars have needed an additive but no mention of any for my F10 5 series MY 2011.

    Chips/Remaps

    Does everybody declare the re map as a modification, and would the MOT flag it up?
