    Many thanks for that Andrew. I think that is a job for when the bumper..has..to come off for another reason. I knew it wouldn't be a reach down and take off job.

    The horn on my F11 is quite pathetic, it sounds like a Morris 1000. Has anyone changed them, i'm assuming there are two, and I bet they are in such an piggin hard place to get at. Its just not befitting the car imo and needs to be much more substantial. Its the only thing that bugs me about the car as it behaves perfectly. What horn would you prefer (ooh ahh mrs)

    Alloy refurb- What colour with Space Grey?

    I do need a set of 351's I'm just not too sure of my 350's.
  5. Does it smell like a water hose with a pinhole in it. I mean the smell of boiling, leaking rad water. This is what I have from time to time. I have the a/c on all of the time at 20-24 degrees. I'm not losing rad water the level is always the same. I thought it may be the egr cooler leaking but I have had the recall on that.

    Just for clarification a vehicle inspection, is it just as it sounds or do they do anything?

    Front and Rear Disc Question

    What person in his own mind has a car, of any make, and not join a forum. It doesn't matter how much you think you know every day is a school day.

    N57TU Engine (1).pdf If you scroll down a bit 'T' seems to designate 'Top performance' which makes sense as the 3.0 top power rating is 258hp. The highest until you come to the 535 models of course. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Its a feb 2013 258 hp. Its not a twin turbo but a single twin port job if that helps.

    Ok so I have a 530d and the engine is a N57T. What does the 'T' stand for, I'm presuming its not turbo. Is there something special or indeed very dull about this code for the engine as I have seen other codes but not come across the 'T' before. Any thoughts, funny or otherwise intelligent ha!
