Have you flushed the oil cooler?  I’m a very strong supporter of this!
How does one do that?

Hi peeps need help recoding the air suspension. Got normal springs after air suspension failure and now pump faulty so cheaper option was to replace with springs. Can anyone in London help out recoding the ECU to remove the air suspension light? Or can anyone recommend anyone in London or nearby?

Hello ppl. My car seems to retain water on the bottom of the rear passenger door anytime it rains or when I wash the car, it all spills out when I open the door! Where is the drainage? on these models

You have to get canbus friendly LEDs. See HIDS DIRECT site. If you don't get canbus friendly, or turn off the hot and cold checks with BMW Scanner or equivalent, you will get a bulb out warning on the dash 😡😡😡😡

How-To / interior full valet
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:54:48 AM »
Our X5 was previously owned by a farmer so you can imagine the interior how muddy it is. I was hoping to give it a full wash or steam clean and was wondering if I can remove the front seats for better access. Would I need to recode the electric seats if I took them out or would it be ok to replug them after clean?

Thanks guys mine has the dvd. Is it normal for the DVD player to make disc spinning noise even though I am not using the nav?? Going back to my original post, I guess I have to just buy new sat nav and no iso file I can burn??

Problems / rear light clusters
« on: December 30, 2016, 02:19:15 AM »
Hi folks new here and I have already introduced myself on the newbie section so I thought I might have the pleasure of asking for some kind advice now. our e70 has the dreaded water ingress in the boot lights which I see is a common fault but seen videos where people are taking them out and refitting with new rubber seals??? if this is correct can I just buy the parts from dealers ad anyone have the part numbers? Secondly any recommendations as to where I can get oe side steps as my one did not come with it?

Thanks guys
