  1. Hi i am having intermittent issues, i keep on getting the engine management sign come up but then it goes away at times then comes back, had the diagnostic test done Error code which comes up is 290900 - Air system, Air to Egr mass flow, plausibility : measured air mass compared with calculated air mass too high. i have replaced the egr valve, air mass flow sensor, Valve, EGR exhaust control (EGR EXHAUST VACUUM SELENOID VALVE )
  2. Hi, First introduction to the board but hoping someone can help. I’ve recently purchased a 65 plate 520d and am struggling with the alarm...just setting itself of randomly. It’s just returned from the garage after having the passenger door lock mechanism changed as this was throwing error codes and also showing as opening on diagnostics when locked and the alarm sounding...problem solved, so I hoped. Returned home and it’s still doing the same...but not all the time. Returned to garage but no new error codes and typically didn’t go off whilst I waited. Been parked up at home for 2 hours also without issue but just returned from a trip and it’s back at it again. Anyone had anything similar or possible pointers? This is coupled with the battery discharging when stationary warning too. Many thanks Geoff
  3. Hi all, Yeterday I noticed a spider in the taillight. It was sitting in there, dead. I removed the light and tried to get the spider out but it was impossible. So I tried to blow air into the holes from the bulbs, but nothing. The spider didn't even move. I even made it worse, because the air has ensured that other dirt such as cobwebs can now also be seen. How can I make my taillight 'clean' again or do I need to replace the light? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi guys, just wanted to share my recent audio upgrade completed today. I bought an F10, 520D recently and as we all know the OEM speakers are not the best. I start searching for compatible speakers and found the usual suspects, Focal IFBMW, MTX, Bavsound stage one, Match, ESX, Harman Kardon etc. I am very price conscious and usually search for days until I am settling for something and in this case, I focused my attention towards the Focal range as I like the brand and had 135VR's and 165VR's in one of my previous BMW E46 coupe. It was out of discussion paying £5 - 600 for the IFBMW and as I wanted to have high-quality sound for the best price I started to look for 4" Focal speakers. I found quite a few and the interesting thing is they are not advertised as compatible with BMW, I am sure they will put the price up if they will.... I bought a pair of these for the back https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-AUDITOR-R-100C-4-10cm-2-Way-Car-Coaxial-Van-Door-Dash-Speakers-240W/262351114177?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 And a pair of these for the front https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-Integration-ISC100-4-10cm-2-Way-Coaxial-Car-Speakers-200W-Total-Power/401093581124?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well 2 pairs of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10cm-4-Front-Rear-Door-Speaker-Adaptor-For-BMW-X3-2007-Onwards/351735857820?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well you will need 4 x 61138373583 and 8 x 61130006664 from BMW for a neat setup. The result is, to say the least, impressive with very clear midrange and crystal clear highs. The Integration speakers in the front have a rotary tweeter which you can adjust to face the driver and raise the soundstage and you really have the impression that the sound is coming from the pillars. All in all, for £160 all in I find it very hard to believe that there is a better solution to upgrade your sound system to match this setup and wanted to share with you all, and believe me you will not regret it!

    Add A SatNav

    Hi, I have a BMW 5 Series F10 with the standard radio and want to upgrade it to the wide-screen satnav one. I'm buying the screen and cd player part from a salvage 5 Series F10 If I use the satnav from the salvage car will it work on my F10 or do I need extra parts such as a new GPS Ariel? Kind Regards Jay
  8. hi all, I have internet as an optional extra in my CIC and am able to connect my phone (Sony Xperia Z5, Xperia XZ2 and Samsung Galaxy A3 2016) to it no problem, but the internet doesn't actually work. It says "starting internet" or something and then hangs until eventually, it says "cannot connect to the internet, please try again later" Is there a workaround? Can one install an app on phone to tether the Bluetooth internet via an understood protocol by the vehicle? I have upgraded the CIC software to the 2014 version (latest) I have enabled Bluetooth tethering on my device I have restarted everything I have disabled music and contacts and messages and only ticked Data on CIC Anyone else having trouble connecting with their Android device to the internet?
  9. 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.
  10. Hi everyone. Thinking of getting separate wheels for winter for my 520d. Ive currently got the staggered 18 inch tyre set up (245/40/18 front and 275/45/18 rear). Am I correct in thinking that I could get 18 inch wheels with 245/40 all around, and if I wanted to drop down to 17, I could do this and have 225/55 all round? I could be tempted to drop down a size just because of cost really. My car has TPMS so I understand that I need to buy wheels with this sensor on there, or I can get them fitted? The car also has rear integral active steering, but I don't think this will be affected by dropping down to 17 or even changing from the staggered 18 will it?
  11. Has anyone come across an online guide for removing the EGR valve on a F10/F11 (N47n engined) 520d? All the guides I've found (use a completely different layout and unit). Mine is the BMW Part No. 11717810871 (made by Wahler). There's a load of gubbins that would have to be removed to reach the EGR and I'd rather not be a pioneer when surely another DIYer must have done this job before.
  12. Dear all, I seen a message pop up recently claiming my key remote battery is low. I am sure this is a DIY job and not an extortionately priced dealer job Does anyone know if doing so risks the key losing its synch with the car? Are there any gotchas basically. Does anyone know exactly what battery I should buy? Is this it --> https://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-CR2450-Lithium-Battery-Blister/dp/B0042KL882/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522325477&sr=8-1&keywords=duracell+2450 While I am at it am tempted to change the other case also, the BMW logo button is completely knackered by other keys and it just a silvery mess now. Am sure there must be some OEM cases on ebay! Thanks again!

    M Sport suspension

    Hi all, this should be a fairly straight forward one to answer (most likely Mr Ashton) but can anyone tell me do cars with M-sport suspension fitted have airbags at the rear??? I suspect not but i`m almost certain that when i got in the car this morning to move it I felt the rear rise up, and my daughter has commented before whilst standing outside the car that the rear looked low.... I cannot see anything obvious when I look into the wheel arch just the usual strut but no obvious spring either.. It was dark this morning so figured guys in the know on here could tell me (or girls to be politically correct) I`m sure they don`t have airbags just on the rear but you never know with the way BMW spec individual cars.. Thanks in advance
  14. Hi Guys Haven't been on for a while but thought I should share this. Very good friend of mine has (had) a Lovely F10 M5 and last night on his drive it got broken in too and had almost all the electronics stolen from it along with interior items It wasn't a have a go hero, it was clearly organised and according to the police they hit 3 F10s last night in his area (Kent) but its a widening issue. First, they covered the movement sensor on the floodlights, then the CCTV camera! Cut a hole in the front bumper and filled the alarm siren with expanding foam, along with cutting the wires to it. They also filled a compartment behind the rear wheel with expanding foam, then drilled into the driver's door and gained access. Once inside they stole all the electronics, screens and M Interior bits. This was done on his driveway, in a built-up neighborhood Forensics where on site within 20 mins as they were taking samples from another car locally.

  16. I have here 4 x BMW Style 328 wheels for sale. I used these as my winter set on my 5 series which I no longer have. The wheels have Nokian W3s on them: 245/45 R18 100V XL. They have about 6-7mm tread left on them all round. They are non-run flats and really made the car drive smoothly and quietly. I would like to point out that one of the alloys has a small crack in it. This developed in the 1st year I had them and resulted in some air loss at the time. I had it welded (see photo) and there have been no further issues subsequently eg air leaking. I am aware that some people prefer not to run a welded alloy, but I just want to be as open about this as possible. There are also some minimal scuffs on one of the wheels and the BMW hub caps have some signs of weathering. I actually didn't use those ones, opting to use the ones that were on my lease car instead as they were brand new. I am based near Uxbridge, London. I don't really want to get involved with getting such large items couriered so these are for collection only please I am looking for £750.00 £700.00 £575.00 ono NOW £500.00 Any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Kamal

    Immobiliser Problem

    Hi everyone, hope someone can help with advice. I have recently bought a BMW 525D F10 2010 reg. it came with a key fob (see photos) recently, I have been having issues with the car starting up. You press the start/stop button and nothing happens with the engine and only turns the electrics on or off. Sometimes even the alarm goes off. Inside the cubby box under the steering wheel(see photos) is some light with a button on it. I think the key fob with the button on it is for this. Whenever I have this problem the light flashes. Not sure if this is a 2nd immobiliser? Has anyone come across this before? Is this a after marker immobiliser? Can I remove it? Can I disable the alarm? I spend about 5/10 minutes pressing the button on the key fob, eventually the red light stops flashing and allows me to start my car. On the display is says ‘ignition on’ sometimes when this problem occurs. No faults on the car showing. any advice would be greatly welcomed and thanks for reading my post, Owain
  18. Hi Guys, Have a 2011 BMW 525D SE with Bluetooth but unable to stream music which is what I would like to do with Spotify. Any recommendations in regards to what to use?
  19. I have a set of wheels with winter tyres that I have used for two winters for a couple of months each time. They have a set of 245/45 R18 Pirreli Sottozero. They have depths of around 2* 5mm and 2 * 4mm approximately. There are no scuff marks on the wheels. There are however slight signs of wear that can be seen in the pictures. I have had a repair done to 2 wheels that were on the near side, this was due to pot hole damage, this work was completed by Prestine wheels, Woburn Sands, these are the authorised BMW wheel repair centre. I have the invoice available. This did not involve any welding. I do not want to get involved in posting such a large item so ideally collection only, I am based near Milton Keynes. Any questions please ask. £600.00 the set.
  20. Hi guys, Hope your all enjoying the snow lately here in the U.k.. I drove over a pot hole not too long ago, which had cut my front passenger RFT tyre and left a slight buckle to my alloy which wasn't visible juntil the tyre was fitted. Anyway I had the tyre replaced and new genuine alloy fitted but noticed that my car had lost the tight steering feeling it had prior to this, and the car seems to wander alot as well as require some over steer when turning around roundabout etc. I had a 4 wheel alignment done to the car by BMW on KDS but this didnt solve the problem and i have just hated driving my car for a few months on long and short journeys, however I have only just realised that one of the features in my car is "Integral Active steering" which i understand is what provide precise turns and less steering input which I used to have before the damage to my tyre and alloy. I have checked through my wheel alignment sheet provided by BMW and noticed that under vehicle spec is states: BMW 5 series F10 2010 - Rear wheel Drive model: without AFS (Active Front Steering) Sport suspension with lower height ride. I cannot understand why the technician has stated without Active Front Steering and there is no mention about Integral Active Steering? I have done some research on Active Front steering and Integral Active Steering which seem to be very similar and the characteristics are exactly what I had with my car where I had full control of my car on fast and low speeds, didn't turn the steering much when doing turns etc. I have now noticed that my rear tyres have wear on the inside and besides the car wandering and pulling left, my steering has to be kept towards the right to keep the car straight yet i find my self constantly having to correct the car when driving straight. Did the technician carry out a wrong wheel alignment on my car at the time and missed out anything such as active steering calibration which other forums have stated? Many thanks for your help in advance.
  21. OK, this may seem like a fairly sraightforward question but one ive yet to find a very clear answer, My 5 series has the following 2 options (522 and 524) Xenon lights and adaptive headlights, but I cant find exactly what Bulb I need to replace the slightly pink and bound to fail soon one I have in the drivers side lamp. I keep seeing that it is DS1 Xenon, but are they all the same as far as wattage etc is concerned?? and should I chose to go for a different kelvin rating does this cause any issues?? im thinking 6000K?? Also can someone explain to me how to tell if i just have Xenon or Bi-Xenon?? I have noticed that my cornering lights in one of the lamps is halogen and looks very orange compared to the other bulb so assume i just have Xenon? Thanks in advance. Mr Ashton im sure you have this covered off somewhere in that knowledge base of yours
  22. So its nearly time to say goodbye to my car which has been amazing for the last 2 1/2 years. Has anybody got an idea of what is a reasonable price for this type of car now? Spec: 15 reg - 535D LCI Saloon Auto 34000 miles White Black 19in wheels Black kidney grille OEM Carbon rear spoiler M sport OEM M performance side graphics M sport plus - Harmon K, Electric seats M sport paddle shift Reversing Camera BMW online till mid 2018 Folding mirrors This car was a pre reg at purchase with 35 miles on the clock and I am the only owner. Mostly motorway mileage, 4 new tyres had first service only to date. Cheers in advance, Mark

    Adding Nav?

    I would have expected this to have been covered, but I can't seem to find anything. I have the chance of a well-priced 520d (Sept 2010) SE, but without Nav. Is it an easy retrofit? I believe the previous model was a change of screen and adding a module in the boot? TIA
