  1. Now completed! Information regarding installation starts in this post; ****************************************************** I'd quite like to retrofit a reversing camera to my LCI F11, it's about the only option that it doesn't have (along with upgraded HiFi) that I would have liked. I've seen a few options available from various suppliers, which seem to be a (non-OEM) camera, wiring loom and control box and presumably some coding to activate. They're available fitted for varying prices from £450 to £650 or so. I'm handy with gap openers and wiring so reckon I could fit a kit myself, but I need to know what bits to buy - I'd prefer OEM equipment if possible although as long as it appears in the same way as OEM on the screen with dynamic guidelines and a decent quality camera then that's fine. The camera definitely needs to be integrated into the boot handle, I don't want to be cutting into bodywork, or have anything stuck on. Has anyone done this themselves and can list the bits that are needed, or offer any advice?

    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
  4. Price drop and new tyres. Here we have my F11 2011 BMW 520D M Sport £8200 ono. I have a mini blog going (via my username, what have you done today etc) But I need a smaller car and want a 3.0 6 pot. It is advertised on Ebay (full of choppers) and Autotrader. It has the usual equipment but with added shadow line trim, black head lining and sports gear box with flappy paddles. It has business Nav with DVD playing enabled. It has extras and all gadgets work from heated seats, auto lights, auto wipers, high beam assist, voice activation, remote folding rear seats, auto boot load cover, front & rear sensors to name a few. This August (at 122k) the chain snapped and BMW repaired and rebuilt the engine. This has a 2 year warranty from BMW. I have a print out from BMW Plymouth detailing the repair work. BMW Snows carried out the work. Since I have owned the car I have: Added black front grills to match the shadow line trim. Upgraded the screen to a full size Android unit. It runs the BMW system and the Android system side by side with all wheel and centre controls active. Updated the BMW Maps to 2018. Replaced the interior lamps and rear plate lamps to LEDs. Had a full service carried out (Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Coolant and brake fluid check) 4 wheel alignment New wiper blades The original front chrome grills can also be fitted. Service History 123399 14/10/18 Full service 122223 29/08/18 BMW engine re build (2 year warranty) 119900 11/05/18 Rear brake pads & sensor 110352 18/01/18 off side air suspension unit (£310) 106523 15/11/17 Service 78090 08/11/16 Service 74800 14/03/17 Tyre service 73726 03/02/17 Brake fluid service 67659 16/06/16 near side air suspension unit (£310) 62054 15/03/16 Service 47824 26/01/15 BMW Service 30480 30/01/14 BMW Service 15229 26/03/13 BMW Service 30560 01/02/14 BMW Warranty check The car drives really well, pulls well for its size (especially in sport mode), no noises or clunks, the Nav system also indicates on to the dash, the android unit has DAB it also has a rear parking camera but I have not gotten round to fitting that yet. The interior is immaculate, the drivers seat has the expected wear nothing to mention. All controls work as they should heat/AC, seats etc. There are a few scratches on the body work in line with the mileage. The car is regularly waxed and washed and has a deep shine. The alloys have minor scuffing and are fitted with Rim Blades, the rear bumper has a small crack in it and a boot lip protector fitted. Proof of driving licence and insurance will be required for a test drive. I live in Plymouth, I will be in Portsmouth from the 19th till the 21st when I return to Devon, I will be in the US from the 22nd till the 28th. Please feel free to ask any questions, and feed back is welcome.

    Next job...

    Next up on the ex-Kent RPU F11 is one I've been putting off a while, but today I finally got the part. In the front end collision that most likely triggered TD15s disposal, the main air guide suffered heavy damage but despite being in several pieces remained in situ. Now I have the replacement, it's just finding time to pop to the hobbywerkstatt, remove the nosecone and bumper parts and then (according to NewTIS) the airguide should be relatively easy to replace. We shall see....
  6. Hi; I have a 2003 F11 SE. I will be needing replacement brake pads and possibly discs when I next service it. Could you give me a quote for pads/discs for both the front and rear please. Cheers!
  7. Evening, Got my 520d at last, came with FSH, an engine rebuild this June by Snows BMW after a chain snap. I was after a car to commute weekly from Plymouth to Portsmouth in comfort (and step down from the A4 3.0tdi, as it was eating fuel and giving me points!) Its got the flappy paddles (are they needed in a 520d) small nav (will change), no DAB, bluetooth phone and streaming and some other bits. To be done Service booked in (it was on long life, I prefer 12m service and will probably DIY the oil every 6) Re-Map sometime next week change lamps to LED for the interior refurb all 4 alloys swap to non run flats add a full size Android head unit with DAB (has anyone installed the DAB antenna?) Done Go faster rear plate LED lights BMW Logo door lights (will post a photo when its dark) Questions: When my S9 is connected via bluetooth, the car beeps and cuts it off? Can I connect my phone by USB to make calls etc? (I'd rather not as I have a 64gb USB with all my music on it) My car is a 2011 is it worth registering for BMW connected drive? I assume it piggy backs data from my phone? Dan
  8. Good Evening All, I have been having the same error message coming up on my car now for a while "cornering ability restricted", i replaced my rear air bags in February this year and all was ok originally, then a few days later the fuse to the compressor blew, so i replaced that and went on my way the car performing perfectly well. a few weeks later the error message i've already mentions popped up on the screen, however my car doesn't have any symptoms and it drives perfectly. To begin with the error message was intermittent occasionally coming up. I will be honest i ignored it because nothing is wrong with the car. The message now continuously comes up whenever i drive the car. I decided to get a Autophix ES910 diagnostics tool to try and read the fault code - after clearing many faults the one that came back straight away was - 480DA0 Discharge Valve: Voltage Fault. I assume this is linked with the air suspension and possibly the discharge valve on the compressor has something to do with it. however the car is absolutely fine? Can anyone help on this, i don't want to start spending money on replacement items if i don't have to? Many Thanks
  9. 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.
  10. Everything worked smoothly when I bought the car, but have noticed that the cover now rises very slowly and doesn't retract fully. It is just like a roller blind with a weak spring. Has anyone out there had a similar problem, and is there an easy fix? Car is a Dec 2015 build, ex BMW PGA sponsorship, bought as AUC in June 2017 with under 4K miles in mint condition so there is no question of wear and tear.
  11. Hi. I have recently bought a 2011 BMW 535d F11. Love the car except when I first set off especially on a cold / damp day the idrive reboots itself once, twice sometimes three times. There is a few minutes inbetween each reboot where system works. Then it is ok for rest of journey / day Does anyone know where to start looking for fault Thanks Ticky

    "Boot Open" warning

    Hi, was vacuuming the boot yesterday and, now "Boot Open" warning stays on the dash. Tailgate closes and locks/unlocks without any problems, glass closes as well, just car thinks its not. Are there any reset tricks, like on side windows? F11 2010. Trunk is not automatic one. Also noticed, that rear wiper and screen wash nozzle doesn't work as well. When opening rear glass boot interior lights turns on, however when opening trunk, boot lights won't go on. Maybe it's wires to blame, but harness going to the glass (where wiper is located) are different to one going to the trunk. Can't be that both failed at the same time? Also disconnected the battery for 10mins, still the same. Plugged pc for errors, and doesn't find anything.
  13. Yet another RFT post Changed my '12 F11 530d SE for a '17 F11 535d M-Sport last month, as a I managed to get my ideal spec. at a great price and low mileage. Both cars have VDC. Straight away decided I would be swopping the OEM RFT's for non-RFTs, and as Goodyear had a promotion on, I ordered some Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3's. When I picked up the car I was quite pleasantly surprised, the current generation RFTs were actually 'OK', or at least the Goodyear Excellence (19") fitted to this car anyway. I still went a head and got the F1's fitted, and initially did not seem as dramatic a change as I expected. However, after running them in I am now really pleased. Ride is less harsh over sharp ridges and a little quieter, but main thing is the car rides and handles as I expect it to. You can actually 'feel' what each corner is doing. I suspect this is how BMW chassis engineers meant it to drive I just swopped again(!) to winter tyres - Continental Winter Contact TS850P on 18", and interesting thing is when I had only 10 miles on them, I dived a bit to fast into a wet roundabout (not a great idea on new rubber I know). But, it was so easy to control - lifted off, felt the back start to move, but all easily corrected, just because of the amount of feedback. Never experienced this feedback before on RFT's - they just feel 'lifeless' in comparison.

  15. At 70-80mph my F11 touring has quite a bit of road noise. Until they wear out I'm still using run flats, so a bit of road noise is to be expected Going around a long right hander the noise reduces; going around a lefthander and the noise increases. . . and the difference between a right and left hand bend is very noticeable. The noise is definitely coming from the nearside, and I think is from the front, but difficult to be 100% sure. Below 70-80 the differences are less noticeable, but there none the less. I've had a reputable tyre company check out the tyres, then swap them round, with no change. When the wheels were off they checked the hub for any sign of slack, but reported none. Could it be a wheel bearing? Or could there be another cause? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  16. Help! I'm getting a little judder / kick around 12 - 1500rpm and quite a lot of black dust when under load, so much so that there's a constant black mark around my rear bumper / exhaust area Now then when I turn the engine off there's a brief clicking noise from around the egr / vacum pressure valve, now putting two and two together I disconnected the valve (part number 7.02318.00) unbelievable no judder and no smoke under load! Would it be possible for somebody to confirm if 1) it's ok to drive with this plug disconnected? (It's drove so smooth and without any obvious issues for the last 10miles) 2) which part could be faulty? I'm getting married on the 1st July and really can't afford any £1000 garage bills at the moment. Somebody suggested spraying a tin of egr cleaner through it which I did, but with no effect. The only thing that cures it is disconnecting the plug to what I believe is the vacum pressure valve? Many thanks in advance for taking the time to read this post
  17. As the title. Should i reset my oil service on idrive when I change my oil as I plan to change it at around 8-10k miles not the 18k miles the computer seems to think is ok. I know the car records how many oil changes, is there any downsides to reseting the oil service when I do these interim oil changes? I'll be using Carly. Any advise appreciated? Thanks

    F11 520D

    Afternoon, I am contemplating buying an 2012 F11 (78k on the clock). I currently drive an E91 2.0L (petrol) - which I hate (previous to this was an e46 320Cd - BEST. CAR. EVER..) The E91 was bought as a short term stop-gap, as I have what the medical world officially call "super swimmers".. Yep, I messed up and got the Mrs pregnant.. Anyway, its time for the E91 to go. I have seen a 520D (cannot emphasise enough the love for my last derv). I am very much aware of the issues with the N47 engine and this is concerning me a bit. As much as I'd love to go down the 530D route, there isnt many (read "I havnt seen") 530D manuals out there let alone many in my price range.. so i guess I'm open to thoughts here. Are the later N47's better? I have read the tensioners are much better and incorporate a ratchet mechanism in there as well as being oil (pressure) driven - Do these seem to be holding out? As well as the above, I've spent most of my time looking at the (obvious) engine issues, but is there anything else obvious I should be mindful of?.. NBT over CIC? what's the real difference?.. TVM, AP

    F10/F11 OBC?

    Good Morning, I am thinking returning to the 5 Series world, and buying a 2012 F11. Whilst I am familiar with the older BM terminology, I am not with the new stuff.. Particularly the stuff relating to the OBC's. Apparently, its not a MID I want any more! If you lot could guide me through whats what, you'd receive much thanks from my, and maybe a biscuit come brew time... AP

    F11 Music

    Hi all, First post here, first fool questions... We've just collected our 64-plate F11 520d SE Luxury, Professional Nav and the following (standard) setup: 6AC Intelligent Emergency Call Intelligenter Notruf 6AE Teleservices Teleservices 6AK Connecteddrive Services Connecteddrive Services 6AM Real Time Traffic Information Real Time Traffic Information 6NS Enhanced Telephony With Extended Sm Komforttelefonie Mit Erw. Smartphon 6WA Instrument Cluster W. Extended Cont Instrumentenkombi. M. Erw. Umf. 609 Navigation System Professional Navigationssystem Professional 654 Dab Tuner Dab Tuner 698 Area-code 2 Area-code 2 The previous owner has left some music on the HDD, and I can rip from CDs in-car, but everything I've tried comes up as 'Unknown Artist/Album/Track etc': I presume this is to do with the Gracenote DB being out of date - can anyone point me to the most straightforward way to update it? Or am I wrong - it does seem like a bit of a weakness on BMW's part. I'm also struggling with getting music onto a USB stick and then into the car: I think this could be because I'm tripping over Apple Music DRM? An idiot's guide to how to do this either via Apple Music/iTunes or Windows Media would be really useful. Cheers!
  21. I've just installed the CTEK charging panel in the boot of my F11. I didn't want to cut the side panel so I just wired it up and left the connector panel in place just under the "tool kit" so to access it I just pop the access panel off and make the connection. The positive wire is connected directly to the +ve accessory terminal on the battery and the negative to the same chassis bolt as the main negative cable from the battery. This way I am still upstream of the IBS sensor which is connected directly to the negative battery terminal. I've circled my connection points in Green in the pictures. You can see I then connect the CTEK 2.5m extension lead and run that out of the rear passenger window that I will leave open just a smidge and connect the charger to the end of that cable.
  22. Just wonering what alloy wheels and tyres you guys use on your F11 or F10. Mainly interested in aestheticall look and of course comfort and etc. If possibly you can post some pictures that will be nice. Thinking about getting dark grey or black wheels instead, any suggestions, thanks

    Newbie and BMW Convert

    Note to say Hi. Long time Jag XF driver, recently converted to my first BMW (2016 F11 535d) and loving it, though I do have a few newbie questions that I will throw to you experts at some time. Look forward to contributing, perhaps my first will be a critique of the Jag XFS and the F11 535d?? Who knows C00lhand
  24. Hi all, I am Ian, from Bournemouth. Just got myself a F11, M Sport touring sport auto in Carbon Grey (not sure of the name of the colour) No pics at the moment as i am away in a hotel but will be sure to post some! 2011 - 60 plate, with 100k on the clock. Really chuffed with the car, and can't wait to go over it with my machine polisher!! A few questions.... My lights (xenons) are all white, apart from two (i think they only come on when cornering?) does anyone know if i can replace with white and if so would you be so kind as to give me the bulb type/link etc. Interior lights - thinking of changing to white LEDs, i've seen on here a thread about doing this and ordering them all individually, does anyone no of a link to a full set, and is it hard to do? Also, is it worth it? I did it on my wife's car and it made a huge difference, but that was only a crappy peugeot! My auto lights seem stupidly sensitive, the dipped headlights are on ALOT, much more than my F30 3 series did, is this a sensor issue? should i clean it, is it on the of the rear view mirror. If i had to fault the car, it would be on its lack of interior storage, the door card pockets are stupidly small, and there isn't enough space to dump stuff in the centre console, but on the whole I love it. I am using it for work and doing 30k a year! It's got good service history but i think i am going to get a full (non dealer) service done soon, what else is worth changing? whats the interval on the timing chain and gear box oil (sorry if they've been covered before, they just popped into my head!) Cheers, Ian
