    Hi We had a recall for the steering rack on my 420d (2015) which I believe was the issue with the bolts/ties. We took this in last week to BMW to get fixed but 2 days later (40 miles) the steering has gone - the heavy steering warning. We took it back thinking its connected to the recall but...

    Hi, I'm looking for someone who can remap my 420d (x-drive manual gearbox). Of course I'd like it to perform like a straight 6 diesel if possible!:) but I'm not too concerned about the power/torque or economy. I'm more interested in removing/reducing flat spots at low revs to give a smoother...
