How-To / Email in car
« on: June 20, 2016, 02:24:13 PM »
Hi, have tried many times without success to try and enable the email system  so that I can see email on the car system. Specifically GMail. I have a 2011 X6 with professional entertainment fitted. Anyone managed to get their system to download emails and any setting suggestions welcome.

Problems / Front vibration of full steering lock
« on: December 13, 2015, 09:30:15 AM »
Hi, in the past month a slight vibration throught the steering has developed at low speed on full steering lock. On a visit to the garage to check this out the technician thought it may be the front transfer gearbox needs replacement, but also that the front tyres were worn (rears changed about 1000 miles ago) which, due to differing circumferences may have stressed the front transfer gearbox.
After renewing the front tyres the vibration has reduced but not disappeared altogeather.
I have a BMW extended warrenty on the car, which is an 2011 X6 3.0d with 35000 miles, which Ive had for almost two years now.

Has anyone else had any similar problems with the front transfer gearbox?  The garage technician implied that this was a known issue with the X6.

General Discussion / Best Insurance company for customer service
« on: July 29, 2014, 04:26:19 PM »

Can anyone here recommend a car insurer with the best customer service?

I've just been shunted from behind and to say that my insurers, Quotelinedirect, were abysmal is an understatement.
Therefore I'm looking around  for a company that cares about their customers and not just taking the money and doing F#*k all else.

Avoid Quotelinedirect in my opinion.

Im looking to fit some sort of dash cam but want one that does'nt drain the battery and is descrete.
Im looking to fit this to a 61 plate X6

Problems / Front brake discs problem
« on: October 09, 2012, 01:50:21 PM »
Hi I'm just looking to see if many other x5 drivers have had any issues with their front brake discs.
My 2003 3.0d sport front discs were fine until about a year ago when at 102000 miles the front brakes developed a judder under braking. the front brake discs were replaced which seemed to cure the problem. However about 3 months and 3000 miles later the judder returned. again the front brake discs were replaced and this again seemed to cure the problem. then in march this year and at 118000 miles the judder returned. I took it back to the independant garage and asked them to this time use BMW OEM front brake discs and to change the brake pads.
this seeed to cure the problem until about 3 weeks ago, when in early sept at 120000 miles the judder returned.
I have taken the car back to the garage to get it fixed again but am seriously beginning to loose confidence in the front brakes on the car.

All the suspension bushes were changed in 2011 and the car has not been offroad at any time.

If anyone out there has had a similar experience or can offer anything in the way of what might be causing these repeated failures of the front brake discs then I would be most grateful to hear from you.

Many thanks.    :(

Hi, I'm thinking of selling my x5 due to requirement to downsize. its an 03 diesel sport with 93600 miles just wondered what would be a fair price to ask for the car. Its standard spec for a sport but no satnav.
