Where did you get the car from? Can you not take it back to them as they miss sold the car if you weren't told it had been chipped! Why did they not offer a warranty on purchase to fix the original fault?

I had a fault on my car a few years ago which basically ment I had virtually no brakes comming back from Newcastle, took into the stealers who fixed the leak and reset everything , they mentioned it was a two part braking system which allows the front brakes to work if all the fluid leaks out of the rears and vice a versa . Maybe worth calling in a dealers to reset & bleed the system .

Hi Ian mine were genuine BMW roof bars , possibly look on the summit website ? Are the bars different lengths as mine were they were also slightly angled also as I once tried to fit the wrong way round which had me baffled for a while !

Hi Ian the roof bars are left and right handed , front ones should have plastic aero inserts on the bottom , they should have fr and fl on fr front right , fl front left if like mine they should just twist to tighten and click down should say this way as they have an oval back piece to the twist lock that if you put it the wrong way it wont lock , rears are the same rr and rl . if you have problems send me a picture of them close up of the ends and I will try to help ! My cars gone now but still have a rear bumper bike carrier for sale , no towbar needed but you need two rear towing eyelet screw threads located behind the towing bracket covers , it was in a light bump with car behind but still works ok just slight bent from the rear push down bar cost £600 for sale for £100 .

Hi you should ask about winter wheels as they usually do a good discount on them when ordering the car , I got 484 wheels will have to check , we got the rear tables stops the kids looking for somewhere to put the tablets , phones and drinks , they are flimsy but work !
 We went for the blue stitching also which may look good on your blue car , pan roof is great kids love it .

I have been toying with the idea a while , one of my sons becomes 17 shortly and I can't get him to learn to drive in the Porsche or the wife's car as hers is an auto and the Porsche is too high a group , I have looked at a few alternatives which have all resulted in low ball offers by dealers .
 So came up with the idea that if it went first I wouldn't have 4 cars to tax and insure , it will be missed as I have had it all over the UK and France doing over 85k in the car over the last 12 years , it has never missed a beat and returned 28mpg over that time which I think is amazing as for the last 10 years it has been pulling a twin axle caravan all over the country as well . We got rid of the caravan last year and replaced the wife's car for a new one , the Porsche came along 6 weeks ago and the X5 hasn't been used much .
 It is a great car and one day I may buy a F15 model but for now need something a lot less too insure for my son .
