    Nice but it begs the question as to why you didn't put all that money into buying a better specced and higher grade model

    If i had have saved & brought a higher spec/model i would have still done the mods as i like my car to be individual & the 123d would have been the next step up but the gearbox isn't ment to be 100% great & a lot lot more money than i paid for mine & the only other item i would have wanted was bi-xenon's & 216 style alloys

    But to be fair i didn't know much about BMW's before so have learned more & more about the different models & specs as i've owned this one, but i love my car & when i come to upgrade it many years time when the kids come along i hope to get a 57- 330d 335d touring & enjoy it for how BMW intended it.

    First time on the site so here it goes. I've got E65 730d and fitted those LED after market day running lights under the bumper in the grill which looked good. But when i put the side lights on the angel eyes now look really dim. So i bought bright led bulbs but after fitting them the computer puts a fault on saying bulb failure so the won't come on, any ideas boys.
