    Advice buying a 520d 2014 120k Miles

    It's true... My F10 LCi, when I bought it, I knew that previous owner only changed at service (30k kilometers) as a normal user. It's "normal" but as we know, not the best treatment... Had that in consideration at his 200k kms. And only a few people I know change oil at 15k kms, like I do (and I use motul 8100 efe) And has passed 315k kms.

    Advice buying a 520d 2014 120k Miles

    N47d20 (184hp) always has timing chain issues, not so frequent that 1st N47(177HP). I know some (few) with broke chain... B47 has an different timing chain design from n47, far better reliability.

    German speeding ticket

    There are some scams with speed tickets... Saying how to pay it in a ATM or wire transfer. As suggested, confirm it in a police station.

    Door speakers?

    The foam insert is included but funny, is always the same. Even with no tweeter, the foam is ready for one ( changes only the frame) [emoji1]
  11. Where did you see chain REPLACE at 100k miles? Wasn't chain status check (measure)?

    Door speakers?

    Yes is possible and easy. I've made the retrofit too. Bought new trims, tweekers and a specific Y audio cable for bmw. Mount and working great.

    bmw connected

    Maybe because he bought it without knowing... Connected drive services are extra and payed at bought (I think it includes 4/5years here). Making 4years he will have to renew (or lose some of the features.
  14. I think it will depend on your retailer; one friend had issues with (official) map upgrade (maybe damage flash drive), got several loop reboots and retailer told him no warranty. And had to pay for a new nbt evo!
  15. Don't forget you are comparing technology from 5+ years ago (bmw nav system) with a up-to-date solution (waze/Google live system). Of course, Android auto is better and will be more! If you compare to same hardware solutions at the time (TomTom, garmin...) will notice that some of them also lack in practical use. The "problem" is that BMW has no interest in development/upgrade that (previous) system; and still, RTTi only relies on their bmw users.

    F11 Eibach Sportline or H&R

    That's because you've got the wrong ET for 10j... So the (correct) wide isn't the issue... Anyone tested the ACS springs? Are they worth it? (Made by eibach)

    Oil Advice

    I'll suggest any (labled) LL04 like suggested Oils formulas are constantly changing, also because of environment impact (and available resources). That's why a brand can have a certification and loose it like Mobil1. Personally I been using Motul and my second choice is LiquiMoly.

    Tyre Load Rating

    Nashdm2, how many tyres? You're funny...Glad you can help in here...

    Tyre Load Rating

    Why? Ask your insurance, for example. [mention=54125]nashdm2[/mention], 2 or 4 tyres?

    Tyre Load Rating

    Answering the question, it will be fine. It will be handle to handle more weight, as told. Shouldn't be noticed. Suggestion of a non-run flat and performance tyre when he specifies a run-flat tyre, touring type... Doesn't seems a good help.

    Wiper Blades for 2013 F10

    Several good brands make wipe blades. You should take more care when using them; keep windshield clean as much as possible, keep them clean (when washing car) and keep them hidrated. I don't have a garage and, in my cars, they use to last around 3-5years

    Brake discs - how long should they last?

    Normally is expected to chane discs in 2 changes of pads, if it's assured minimum tightness. But programmed scheduled maintenance says different [emoji57]
  23. If it happened from nothing... Be prepared for assistance from bmw dealer. A friend was only solved with a hardware replace
