    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Just changed the dipped bulbs on my LCI to 6000k LED bulbs (1 was blown) Super happy with them so far, will see them tonight and get a picture. Might have to rotate them, didn't know had to be put in lever.

    Haha that sounds about out. Mine all gone all together, stopped rest of the parking sensors from working. I got luckily, found a color coded one on ebay for £20, swapped it and can't tell any difference look wise.
  5. Hi guys, Could someone explain these values to me, I've read lower the mbar the better, but also being told my cluch E is too low? And don't understand why. Garage I know said he would expect a new clutch to have an E value of 60-80mbar, and mines 8? I've not reset it at all.
