Problems / Re: Tapping shushing noise
« on: April 25, 2018, 07:51:02 PM »
I've had a look as best I can for the time being as the weather has been horrid. Anyway I think it's the shield at the back of the brake disc. I tried to bend it a little out of the way and the noise was way worse but it was the same noise. If I take the wheel off will I be able to see where it's catching ? And can the shield be removed if i  cannot alter it to avoid the noise?

They look fine from what I can see but I haven't had the wheel off . I will try and have a look tomorrow after work if I get home in time .
Thanks for the reply

Problems / Tapping shushing noise
« on: April 22, 2018, 07:21:08 PM »
Hi all
Need a bit of help and advice please if possible. My car has started to make a sort of tapping sshh sshh noise and it's not going away. It's definitely coming from the front and at first I thought it had a nail or something in the tyre. There isn't however a nail in the tyre so it's not that. Just taken it out for a spin and when I brake hard the noise is still there but it sounds faster if that makes sense. The car has 62000 on and is really smooth to drive but I did notice under heavy braking there is a bit of judder.
Anyone any ideas please ?

Need help yet again please. I was trying to check what version maps I had and somehow the screen has gone funny. It's not in split screen mode but now when the radio,  Sat nav etc is showing it's not a full screen. There is a bigger gap on the left than there used to be. I've tried everything and can't get it back to how it was. I have pressed the button left and left again and it wont alter. It's the professional edition if that helps..

Thanks for replying ive never ever known a fuse box like it. Most were live all the time and some fuses didn't show even when the car was started which worried me slightly.  Hopefully I will have another go tomorrow.
Cheers pal

Please can anyone help before I go insane. I picked up my e70 yesterday and I am trying to hardwire my dash cam. What a nightmare, can find a fuse in the front fuse box that comes on with the ignition. I read loads of posts and they spoke of the e70 powers down after 10 or 20 mins  and I should be able to locate a fuse. Well when I locked the car with me in it all that happened was the alarm went off.... Does anyone know off hand which fuse I can use .......please
Thanks in advance

Does anyone have a link for a vin checker please ?  The one I had just seems to be adverts and doesnt work.
Will the vin checker tell me exactly what the vehicle had fitted at the factory? I think I have found the E70 i want to buy but want to make sure everything is ok.
Many thanks

« on: February 07, 2018, 08:55:24 PM »
I have finally decided the 40d is the car I'm going to buy. The car will be a 12 plate asvthats where my budget sits.
Does anyone know of a link or on this forum that shows a list of standard spec the car should have? I know a lot of people have extras fitted when ordered new but I just wanted to know everything that is standard interior and exterior if possible.
Hope you guys can help .
Many thanks

Thank you for you reply and I have taken note of all the things you said . I do like my e53 a lot but just feel I need a new model with better extras. Colour is an issue as I like blue but these don't seem readily available although white is growing on me. Sell him off searching I will let you know if I see anything .
Many thanks

Thanks for the reply. It's a nightmare trying to filter out the vehicles for spec etc.
I'll see what I can find and call back if I need more info.
Many thanks
