    Condensation inside headlight

    Couldn't agree more. Ridiculous really.

    Condensation inside headlight

    Mine got really bad in the last week or two and I finally had to do something about it today. When liner and wheel removed and in with the hairdryer. I have left the top cap off for now to see if the last few drops of water will evaporate that way. I did also take the opportunity to upgrade main beams to osram led whilst I was in there. Look brilliant.

    Not at all. It was about 390 plus vat I think from memory. Had brakes and service done at same time so big bill but smoother since.

    Yes first one. Done at about 160k. Big difference after.

    Oil/burn smell after oil service

    Why? Surely no consideration here. It needs to go back.

    I had to replace snapped active anti roll bar at cost of 2.4k but that was bad luck with a pot hole. Changed all discs and pads last year and had gear box serviced. Sweet and smooth now. Also had remap upto 310bhp last year. Car is as sweet as anything really and my regular stop start commute in traffic and a road sees 37 mpg average. Over 50mpg easily on a long run. Best car I've ever owned by a long stretch and very quick when I'm in the mood. Same engine i think with a detune for 525d but sure someone else will confirm.

    Still on the car at the moment but that's spot on thank you. Am I correct in thinking the bumper has to come off to remove headlights?

    Hi mate. I too have this problem but quite a lot worse than yours I think. Can you tell me more about where you have drilled the holes you mention?

    Did you fit the kit yourself?

    Android auto retro fit to f11??

    How's the sound quality? I fitted a similar unit to this into a mondeo a few years ago. The functionality was great but the sound was noticeably worse than the sony unit previously fitted.

    Racechip GTS black tuning box

    Nice. I've just had my 530d mapped to 310bhp and this is a riot so the 535 must be another level.

    Help please

    Gents, Serial lurker and new member. Please see attached picture and advise as to what this is please. F10 530d. Is this expensive?

    Well lads, claim is in against the council so we'll see what happens there. I have photos to show the damage and photos of the pothole so fingers crossed. Car is now fixed also with new droplinks, anti roll bar and bushes. It is transformed so think the old ones must have been worn anyway. Not a surprise given the mileage really. Also now feels like much bigger difference in sport and sport + modes. Good be a placebo but car feels like it's on rails!

    Help please

    Yes. Exactly what I am intending to do with Durham County Council. Fingers crossed. Thanks for all help.

    Help please

    Not sure Matthew to be honest but I need the car back ASAP and not happy driving it any real distance as it is. I have however put in a complaint with Durham County Council so we will see what happens.

    Help please

    Hi Andrew. It was a different part number sadly and the parts guys at two BMW places I spoke to said the part numbers needed to match. To be honest, as much as the cost makes me feel a bit sick, it's probably best to fit a new one anyway as I know the history of the part then.

    Help please

    You won't be envious at the moment! Can't source part anywhere second hand as all used ones are for LHD and the motor is on the wrong side. Having to pay the 2k. Not a happy chappy but needs must.
  21. Pedro79

    Help please

    Thanks guys. No thats a trusted indie. Majority of price is the part. Think I have sourced a used one for 300 quid plus delivery so will go for that if its the right one. Just waiting for the spares place to match the part numbers. Grrr....

    Help please

    Right gents. Cost is eye watering as the car has dynamic suspension. For a new part and labour, I jave been quoted 2200 quid + VAT. I am now busy browsing ebay and breakers websites for a used part. Bloody cars!

    Help please

    Cheers Andrew. Good to be here. Read a few of your posts with interest. Will do the drain clean out when I get a chance! 167k so high but still very sweet. Just been remapped actually hence the spirited drive!

    Help please

    Thanks Andrew. Will see what the garage comes back with and update!
  25. Pedro79

    Help please

    Thanks lads. Strange really. Some spirited driving the other day, hit a very minor pothole and clunk! Going into the garage tomorrow so we will see how much they come back with!
