General X5 Forum (F15) / Light scratches on piano black trim
« on: January 15, 2018, 07:33:21 AM »
So, what’s the consensus on removing a couple of fine scratches? I’ve got some Xerapol in the garage, which is great for removing scratches from the plastics on my bikes, but wondered if it would be any good on the piano trim? I’ve also heard that Novus 2 may be good.


General X5 Forum (F15) / That was lucky!

I noticed that some of the blue dye from my new jeans had stained the white leather in the car earlier. :'(

Luckily I had some Auto Glym leather cleaner, so have managed to get rid of the marks (and cleaned all of the seats at the same time!).

What do you guys recommend, to make sure this doesn’t happen again? I’ve already put all my new jeans through the wash this afternoon, before anyone says that! :))

General X5 Forum (F15) / Coding help needed

So I've got the Bimmian LED indicators installed, and working as they should, but they flash on startup, then a quick flash every minute while the car is moving.

Some Googling revealed that it's possible to disable the self diagnostics on the front indicators, which would stop this from happening. My BMW dealer is going to have a look on Friday for me, but failing that, does anyone know of anyone in Surrey that can plug my car in, and disable this?

Buy and sell / Chrome grills for F15 M50d
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:34:40 AM »
As I’ve fitted the BMW performance black grills, the standard chrome grills are surplus to requirements.

In immaculate condition, so I’ll do them for £125, including shipping in the UK.

General X5 Forum (F15) / Mirror caps on Space Grey M50d

Does anyone know if these should still be Ferric grey, or do BMW fit body coloured mirrors as the colours are quite close?

Morning folks. I’m just about to pick up my new M50d today........

And it’s bloody raining! :))

Looking forward to enjoying the car, after putting off the inevitable for years.
