  1. Dear Experts, I am new this forum and need your advise to understand this strange noise coming from my BMW 520d F10, 2011 and from the engine bay. Not sure from where it’s exactly coming from engine bay, but highest noise I see from driver side engine front. When car is idle it sounds perfectly alright, however if I go above 1000rpm it starts making weared noise. I’ve recorded and attached video link of it. I do appreciate members to please share your experiences and view on it. I’ve visited BMW specialist but he spent less than 10 seconds for investigation and said it’s timing chain and estimated for £2000, already ring BMW and as usual they don’t have any appointments for next 3 weeks to investigate this. I really really appreciate your help and opinion. BMW 520d noise from engine (YouTube) above link of youtube video I’ve captured for noise. Thanks.

    Insurance on 520d

    Hello guys, I'm new to this forum and also a new owner of BMW 520D F10 I'm aware that the insurance for such a car in my age won't be cheap, but I just want to make sure I check everything before paying 3k a year. So I'm 20 years old, 21 in March. Held my licence since September 2015 and only got 1 year no claim as someone reversed into me last year so lost basically 2 years worth of ncb. I bought a bmw 520d f10 m sport 63 plate, and when I made a quote on confused.com I only found a 3.1k quote the cheapest, which is quite a lot. I'm driving a ford focus 1.0 125 15 plate atm and I'm paying around 2k for the insurance having my mum as additional driver with eu licence. I might be stupid getting a car like this, but it's only 2l, my mates were driving m235 at the age of 20-21. So I just wanted to ask if you guys any idea of what can I do, or which insurance provider to choose to pay as little as possible? Hope I get some help, thanks! :)
