General X5 Forum (E53) / Re: Coolant thermostat
« on: November 14, 2017, 08:27:02 PM »
As you say "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but yours is broke and needs fixing. Your car will run forever with an open thermostat,  but it's taking longer to warm up and it's using more fuel, it's just not as efficient.
Also, I do believe that the dpf will not regenerate by itself if the temperature doesn't meet the requirements for regeneration

Problems / AC Pipes
« on: June 29, 2017, 05:19:08 PM »
Just had a new condenser fitted and now told that I will need 2 new pipes to the condenser.  Parts alone costing £220+VAT from BMW and then fitting is quoted for 3 hours and then re-gass.  Nearly £500. 
Anyone know anywhere else I can get the parts?

I have found the part number through Realoem....thanks

Looks like there are different sizes for the condenser depending on what make u go for.

Would they all fit?

Ac wasn't working...out of gas.

Just had it recharged and about an hour later the driver side is starting to come out warm and the centre is passenger is cold but not as cold as before.

I knew there must be a leak before I had it regassed and I informed them.  The did a leak test with a dye and all was well.

Okay, went on Ebay and found this;

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-Philips-D1S-4300K-35W-XENON-HEADLIGHT-BULBS-HID-85410-AUDI-BMW-MERCEDES-WV-/191782064404?hash=item2ca71a1114:g:arYAAOSwARZXkSFo

Is the above right?

Seems like a bargain and its phillips, they also do the 6000K at the same price.

Yes, it means the bulb has gone....my bulb went yellow on my old E53 and I found two Philips bulbs (with igniter attached) on ebay for £40. The are what BMW use from the factory I believe, will try and find the link.
Thanks......are these easy to change?

Just realised I should of put this in the E70 part
