    Potential F11 buyer- Winter tyres

    Winter tyres are amazing. After trying them I promise you'll be a convert. They aren't just snow tyres, they are winter tyres. Better in the rain, and the cold.

    Nice. I had a Williams that I sold about 5 years ago. I loved it.

    Here’s a USA focussed description. https://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=842217 2014+ is the simplest way...

    Maybe it’s a LCI thing?

    Welcome. What’s your track car?
  6. I live out in the sticks, so after I turn off the nearest a-roads there’s 15-20 minutes of b-road driving to get home. From the two directions I commonly approach home from the BMW stat nav (NBT 2019-2 maps) picks terrible routes. One is about 15 minutes longer, and the other is about 5. Both times it’s obsessed with staying on the main roads as long as possible.

    F11 tailgate corrosion

    That’s good overall. I’ve had good service from the Lloyd bodyshop (and dealer) in Newcastle.

    Retro Fit Towbar on to an F11

    If I get this fitted to my F11 will it integrate correctly with the car? https://www.westfalia-automotive.com/de/en/produkte/anhaengerkupplung/bmw-5er-reihe-touring/303370900113-285/ So; will the rear parking sensors deactivate? Can the reversing camera focus in on the tow hitch? Etc. The reason I ask is that when I had a Westfalia tow bar fitted to an F31 3 series, the rear parking sensors always activated, so each time you put the car in reverse you had to press the little button to deactivate them. But that meant the front sensors were off too. Irritating. I’m a little concerned that the website I linked to says ‘no coding’. At the moment there is no option when the reverse camera is active for the tow bar view.

    On my 2016 LCI F11 it can be configured in ‘Settings/Doors/key’

    You can program what the remote buttons do hidden away in the sub menus in the idrive.

    Front power socket not working

    How do I get the cup holder out? I found these instructions https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f11-535d-tou/repair-manuals/51-body-equipment/51-16-mirrors-finishers-ashtrays-consoles/Dd9qTyGJ But that says you need to do this first https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f11-535d-tou/repair-manuals/51-body-equipment/51-16-mirrors-finishers-ashtrays-consoles/By5deKh7 Surely not? I tried to pull the cup holder upwards, but it seems solidly fixed in...

    Front power socket not working

    The socket for the rear passengers works ok now, and didn’t before. So I think that points to a wiring issue with the front one.
  15. The front power socket (cigarette lighter) on my F11 doesn't work. The rear one works OK. It's been broken since I got the car so I don't know what originally caused the problem. Where things get a little more interesting; is that I have changed fuse 54. This had blown. But after that, no luck. Or should I say 'no cigar'. I looked at all the other fuses for the power sockets and they all seemed OK. Any other ideas? The only little thing is that I put a 15A fuse in instead of a 20A as I didn't have any 20A ones to hand. When I took it out to check the fuse looked OK though.
