    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I've checked it and it all seems ok, I think it's just a abit damp and some grease around as I used copper grease putting things back. I recently had the leg of the car and inspected it as soon replaced my passenger side damper. I have been expecting to give soon. I'm at 90k mileage

  5. you can try downloading the latest firmware from bmw and installing it via usb. https://www.bmw.com/en/footer/software-updates.html good luck its fairly straight forward may or may not fix your issue but wont do any harm to try

    F10 520d Front Vibration

    really hard to tell anything from those videos, possible for a leaking vac pipe on one or multiple of the engine mounts or a dead engine mount with the symptoms you've described though

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

  11. if you could help me out in sourcing such equipment, i've had a google but cant find any specific supplier of the upper wishbone for the car this is the closest thing i can find to being able to give any negative camber https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOR-BMW-5-SERIES-F10-F11-F07-FRONT-RIGHT-UPPER-CONTROL-WISHBONE-SUSPENSION-ARM-/171455872199
  12. hello guys, im thinking about swapping the alloys on my car shortly. I've seen a nice set, up front are 9.5" is this too wide for my mere 520d m sport. I've seen an m5 with 10" rims up front but I'm sure there's some difference there underneath.

    Which black front grilles?

    they are both made in the same factory, and to be honest both are really cheaply made. they do the job and wont fall apart but they are really flimsy in comparison to the stock grills. by the £20 ones of ebay theres no difference in the quality

    Aggressive gear shifts

    try resseting the throttle response and see how you get on. *edit if this solves it temporarily then possible you need the gearbox serviced

    Aggressive gear shifts

    hmmm im at 88k and cant report such a fault i've noticed, i've put 19k miles on it since january and its silky smooth. get the box inspected before further damage occurrs might just be an oil top up as mentioned
