    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    If you want power, torque and good mpg you should get a 530d or 535d...best of both worlds I think...

    Interior LEDs [White] ? More modern?

    I don’t think they look blueish ...they are closer to xenon...i think.

    Ohh...ok. [ don't feel bad, I don't have the frikking folding mirrors! ] I am tempted to buy the Osram...but not sure if warm or cool white. I think 4000k should be nice white. Bdw, Osram have a range for our daylight driving, so look similar to xenon lights....OSRAM COOL BLUE® INTENSE H8...it is around 4200K which i think will look nicer. https://www.osram.de/apps/gvlrg/en_COM have you ever saw one in real life?

    Hi @GoNz0 Is the warm white like the LED we have installed under the wing mirrors that light up when the car is unlocked? I assume you have this option on yours. Thx.

    Cargo cover not closing

    I know this is an old post but mine also works intermittently... I can hear the mechanism working and moving when I press the glass switch or the tailgate switch...but the shelf seems not to move. I added some vaseline to help the sliding and it helped a lot...however after a long time of no use, it still get stuck. on close inspection, I noticed that the right tiny bearing is damaged and has a whole..so I suspect that this is the problem. Is the only solution to buy this kit?? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-5-Touring-E61-Rear-Roller-Tubular-Handle-Repair-Kit-51479130667-NEW-GENUINE/382954747685?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D6135bb0ac7234485aa23cfee3fb24970%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D382954747685%26itm%3D382954747685%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DBMW&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A01ccebf8-ba23-11ea-a7cf-f2405f66637e|parentrq%3A00d7d08a1730a0f2cc13ad66ffe7c4c3|iid%3A1 as I don't need the damn handle Thanks.

    Do you let your better half drive your BMW? :)

    She will be using it for a 3rd day... yesterday she told me i really like the way it pulls out of junctions and stop signs....hmmm...that explains the 1mpg drop!

    day 1 looks ok.....however she did manage to drop the average mpg from 31 to 30mpg. This average was last reset 800km ago...so I think she did exploit that 6 cyclinder engine not looking forward for day 2...
