    Hi All,

    I have been here a while, since I bought my e61 530d back in May. These forums have been really useful in getting to know my car. I have done a few basic DIY bits like headlamp restoration which went well but didn't use enough masking tape and so need a little paint restoration now

    Had oil and filter changed in transmission.

    I have checked engine temp and all fine, went up as high as 98c in stop start traffic today with ambient temp at around 18 degrees.

    Fitted logic 7 tweeters, but had to go back and take door panels off again as I had knocked the door release catch cable from housing. Now also got a slightly wonky pushy down button at top of door, but can live with this for now, probably got the door release cable behind the wire part pushing it forward, will sort it next time i have door panels off.

    I also sorted out poorly fitting door mirror that had been put back on by BMW dealer when they did some spray work for previous owner.

    Car is running really nice apart from a slight stuttering at 1500 rpm when maintaining slow speeds. Currently investigating. Top tailgate lights have a few leds out and condensation, currently investigating removal and replacement. Very slight misalignment on steering wheel but can live with that for now, will get it reset some time. Had self levelling suspension warning light today and that went away, currently investigating this also.

    I think thats about all, thanks to all for help in getting to know my car. Not really needed to post so far because most of the info is already out there. See you in the forums
