    welcome mate - ask the dealer to check the coolant temp via the hidden menu BEFORE you make the final payment. Then watch their faces drop as they realise you know a little more than most punters!!

    lots and lots of E60's are running cold and require the Main or EGR thermostat replaced. you could be saving yourself £400 odd

    2004 E60 530d hidden menu ?

    some will only work by adding together the last 5 numbers and not 6 as is indicated. mines a 2005 and i added the last 5 digits

    test 07 Koolant is the one you want to get into and then switch the car on and take her for a 10-12 minute drive - if the temp is anything lower that 88C ... you need 1 or both thermostats changed
