  1. Hi everyone, something very odd has developed on my f10, i went out earlier and as i pulled of my drive and accelerated noticed a buzz/rattle from what appears to be from top of steering column, ive pushed on the plastic, wedged my fingers down sides and the noise doesnt go away, once your upto a certain speed you cant hear it, but once you slow down the noise come and goes. Is this a known problem? Any help would be appreciated. thanks Edit: actually sounds like a winding noise, not as present once the car has warmed up but still very much there

    Service interval?

    When i flick through my service menu the only one it allows me to change myself is vehicle check. the others are shaded out. thats as far as my knowledge goes on it. On a side note i find the idrive system a brilliant bit of kit

    Service interval?

    Not long after i had the car, i had the rear brakes done at a local specialist bmw garage. They did plug my key in and update it but i have wondered since why it says 0000 i just put it down to being a specialist and not main dealer Edit. I think it does actually state milege when you scroll down its just service that says 0000

    Service interval?

    Thanks for your replies i will get it changed asap as i dont want any chain issues, previous stamps in book indicate oil changes have been done every 20k, the Man who had it before me did mega miles annually. As you said andrew i have got the n47 engine but it says n47t on generator thing. Not sure if they improved chain problem?

    Service interval?

    Hi, im having a little confusion over service intervals on my f10 2.0 2013 lci. i have always had my cars serviced annually, but looking at my service requirments on the idrive it says engine oil not required until 08/20, however my service book says the last service not counting the brake service was october 2017 the car was on 69k its now on 94k. Is this how long bmw service schedule is? It seems far to long to me. Ill attach pics thanks

    Power delay!?

    Well after taking the car to sytner yesterday they have said the intermittent power loss was due to oxygen sensor short circulating to earth caused by a break in the wire. BMW have put a contribution to the part and it was fitted today. Let's hope it's fixed...

    Power delay!?

    I had my egr cooler replaced about 6 weeks ago at sytner, so what your saying has rang some alarm bells. How did you attack it with the dealer?

    Thanks for your reply, would this fault throw a code up? As I've had nothing pop up. Thanks

    Power delay!?

    Hi, wonder if anyone can shed light on a intermittent issue I have, when accelerating sometimes either from a standstill or from a slow speed there is nothing there, like a delay of power then it will suddenly come back, but even when it does it doesn't seem as responsive. As I said it's only every now and again apart from that the car is perfect. Amy help would be appreciated, thanks in advance

    I do like that piano black trim against the oyster leather, very nice. I have the oyster and aluminium combo on my msport, i think id opt for your black if i had choice. Its also surprising how easy the leather is to clean and look tip top, even with 2 small kids
