    Full brake/pad service due

    You will not need discs at that mileage so pads all around would be ok and on a guess back pads should be ok for awhile yet but an easy check
  2. You an buy a bye pass on ebay for a few £s its a 5 min fit as its normally the passenger occupancy sensor in the seat base that triggers this fault

    High pitch scrapping noise

    Leaving to November is a silly idea for the sake of a 5 minute check wonder what other service and checks you keep putting off

    Metal Ping/Ting noise from rear

    Jack car up and check disc backing plates for movement they are prone to break and will give a tingling noise as the touch the disc easy fix using a washer

  9. A failed EGR valve will throw up those faults a common fault on F10/F11 best way is to fit a new one buy genuine from BMW not that expensive

    Possible dumb question!
