    Android Head unit replacement

    Well that's what I thought....but it hasn't done it since. I didn't change any other settings.

    Android Head unit replacement

    Scott 3810.....i did have a little issue on mine where something similar happened. I went into the android menu and moved the volume slider down then back up...it was almost as if something got stuck( electronics shouldn't I know!)....but it cured it. It goes bloody loud now. This was not the car radio but an Internet radio app on the android unit....Tune In.

    Android Head unit replacement

    Yes! Well there is on mine....MUCH louder to start with and I don't know if just my hearing but it sounds way better too..bass is definitely more punchy...but you need to play around with the settings a bit.

    Drivetrain Error & Water in boot

    Just remember they only change the egr cooler under the recall...not the egr valve itself.

    BMW F11 Alignment

    Can't say for the front tyres but the rears seem to wear like that on many cars...mine certainly did and I've seen quite a few on here that it happened to also. Seems to be a trait of the F11s

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    What he said... How do you get them off? Tried giving them a yank but no joy....

    F11 Speaker Upgrade

    This is also something I'm toying with too. The sound in my F11 is truly awful...even the volume is very poor. Why BMW couldn't have put in a decent set of speakers is beyond me. I listen to music a lot when I'm in the car and its very disappointing to hear the quality. Looking at doing an upgrade with an amplifier though...

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Its a long drive! From London to Taurage is around 1400 miles....mostly motorway. We split the journey in two staying just inside the Polish border for a night. If you don't stop its a 22 hr drive....! But its worth it....been to Palanga, Nida, Kaunas, Taurage and a few other smaller places. Nida is very beautiful and nice and quiet. Palanga isn't...... See attached pictures...you can guess which is which Neil

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    This is what i did to my car today! Bloody boot floor handle snapped right off. At least it looks an easy fix. I'm in Lithuania at the moment so I'll see if I can get one here.

    N47 engine issues

    EGR valve is not changed when the cooler is replaced under the recall. I had to ha e mine replaced shortly after the recall work was done...i knew it was faulty and thought they would replace with the cooler...but nope, was told that is not part of the recall....stupid!
