    Fitted my new private plates yesterday! On the downside, been having some issues when starting the car cold and also when driving along sometimes can hear it struggle... mate plugged it in and found a few codes.... glow plug, dpf, turbo air cool (or something) and a couple others... cleared them, running for 48 hours then scanning again to determine which were old and which are still at fault. i’m thinking glow plugs and possibly an injector fault... discovered last mot that fuel filter hadn’t been changed since factory fit (2009) and was disgusting... see what happens in a few days!

    Cheers!! Can anybody recommend decent bulbs to make the fog lights match the xenons? Without expensive HID kits!

    Bit confused with fog light bulbs.... Mines the Lci (2009) msport e60 with adaptive xenon, which fog light bulbs do I have on the fronts. H8?
  5. Mine also failed recently, can’t comment on how the bolts came off as went to my buddys garage to be repaired (I’ve learnt not to touch anything mechanical). Was replaced with a brand new BMW one, not sure if its reinforced or not? Out of curiosity, all those who had them fail, was your engines remapped/chipped?

    Cheers buddy I’ll have a look and try something one evening. Would love to get my car on the track haha, haven’t been driving hard either. The discs on there atm are very cheap quality ones so could it be that also?

    Front brakes are on the to-do list again.... not even 6 months in and they’re warped again!
  9. can confirm this, mine is LCI fitted with adaptive xenon and this is what they do

    Believe mine was also BMW original! My mate says could’ve been due to it pushing too much torque through the car, basically driving it too hard.... but either way its fixed now and hopefully wont happen again for a long time! supposedly the newer ones have thicker rubber and are a lot tougher! just given the car a quick clean down the jetwash too, long overdue!!

    £550 for genuine bmw pulley, bolts, and 2 belts from ECP (dont know brand)! Add another 100 for labour and thats how much lighter it is haha

    Just picked mine up from garage after having new crankshaft pulley, certainly lightened the pocket but needed doing!

    was always under the impression the pre lci was 2.5? I know the lci is a 3.0, I have one, it was very detuned til I mapped it
