    PDC Failure Help

    Remember these car's are canbus so lot's of stuff shares the wiring, Probably a bit like turning a computer off at the mains ? Like you, I would just be happy for now but as I understand it a week or flattened battery can cause all sorts of issue's with these car's.

    stage 3 required help please.

    & get your cheque book ready What power are you chasing? Stock injectors & turbo with the right mapper good for 330, As said 535 injectors, pre lci fuel pump (R90) hybrid turbo should see you around 400. Glen at GKr can advise, or mashedpotatos at HarperMotorsport.

    World class bodgery

    I've stopped looking at mine like that for the time being, as my list was growing so quickly S.W.M.B.O was giving me the look.

    Tyre pressures

    I'd stick to your door piller sticker advice, After all it's all to do with the weight of the car/load in the car/speed of the car & the load rating of the tyres but this should be the same run flat or non run flats. Do you bother altering the pressures if your doing a motorway run with four + people in the car? To be honest the only time I alter mine is my rears when towing.

    Is My Turbo on It's Way Out..

    For information, the pic you posted is the positive boost pressure pipe from the turbo to the intercooler. If you pop it off where it joins the intercooler, (just a wire clip & pull) you will see one of the seals I'm talking about.

    No mate you misunderstood, the seals in the boost pipes. Where they join the turbo, intercooler both sides ect & yes they are about £8 each from the steelers. Have a look on realoem

    Rough running and smokey

    No worries mate, we were all new to the madness that is BMW ownership at some point, Your car needs to hit & maintain 87° the do a regen & have more than a quarter of a tank of fuel. Is yours an auto? If so have a read up on the gearbox thermostat thread & check yours, On mine I did the main thermostat, egr stat & gearbox heat exchanger mod (thanks GoNz0). Do all this, a tank of super diesel, with a can of dpf cleaner thrown in for good measure & take it for a good hours blast keeping it above 2k.

    Why would this be missing?

    Plenty of people over on the farcebook group with + 200k on these gearboxs, At that mileage, it's ready for a gearbox service. Dartford transmissions come very highly recommend. +1 for the trim being removed due to dead battery, but why not quiz the seller ? Oh & don't mind sinking another 1k into it lol, You'll do that with some good maintenance, start replacing worn part's & youll be at 3 -4 k But worth it. How cheep is the car ?

    Rough running and smokey

    Sounds like a dpf issue to me, When these are re - gening the exhuast note get's gruffer & you can get some smoke / soot out of the exhaust. Have you checked your temps on the hidden menu?

    Is My Turbo on It's Way Out..

    That's not a lot & quite normal at your millage, yes at 160 odd k your turbo will be worn but that looks ok. When I next get under mine I'll post up some pic's If there's a slight boost leak, ie failing seals then the turbo doesn't get enough back pressure on the oil seals, It depends on the positive back pressure to keep the oil behind the seals, this is why higher millage cars have oil in the intercooler ect.
