    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I'm so not happy about taking my old girl in, she's rough & ready on the outside due to careless previous owners & a lack of cash & time on mine. But she runs spot on.

    E61 rear hatch glass

    Yeah 100% It'll be the switch randomly popping the glass hatch. The tailgate wiring will be the fault for the number plate light & rear de-mister. It was on mine.

    E61 rear hatch glass

    100% what GoNz0 said. Mine was the switch at fault, a small hole had worn in the rubber switch cover allowing water in & a short. The replacement switch's are an improved design.

    I've got Arnott on my m sport, No problems, it'll just inflate them to the desired ride height is met thanks to the level sensor.

    Yeah that bag is done, that split shouldn't be there. When they are removed on one end you will see the BMW sticker if oe. Mine were at 138k & 13 year's old.

    535d High Mileage

    If it's a pre LCI then that millage is nothing as long as it's been properly looked after. At that millage all the consumables will have been replaced at least once (it's just down to with what quality) & the price of the car should reflect the millage.

    Which is the right battery?

    I had this problem, turns out the dealer I bought it from had just chucked in a new el cheepo battery & not coded or registered it. Yes if you swap like for like you can just register not code, if you go for a bigger ah than the car is coded for then yes you need to code as well. Check what your car is programmed for using ISTA+ impa, Carly ect. Also your voltage regulator could be going bad (to add to the fun).

    Yup that was me, GoNz0 said transport mode & by golly he was right

    Yes your air suspension will drop slightly over time but if by much you have a leak. It sounds like transport mode has been triggered, this happened on mine when I was working on it. I don't know why or how but GoNz0 put it right for me (I'm a bit behind with the computer's)

    So you have two leaking airbags, SF98 & SF99 & this has caused the compressor too prematurely give up. The time fault is the clue, it's taking too long to inflate the bags due to a worn compressor. Yes the system is always active, my cuts in once a day but only for seconds.

    I'm by no means an expert, but I've had a fair bit of experience with mine. I don't personally know how you can alter the rear ride height in impa but I know it can be done. BUT you have an issue with a leak (why it's on it's arse) & your compressor isn't working/being triggered. Altering the ride height with impa or ista will only work if the system is working. Where abouts are you? You need to get someone to read the codes that can tell you what they mean. GoNz0 is my go to, the man is a BMW guru
