Hoping someone can help. I have a 2007 E60 and lately I’ve had to turn the A/C to a lower temperature to feel comfortable in the car.
Firstly any ideas what it could be?
Secondly I have access to INPA, but don’t know a lot about how to use it, so step by step instructions to check what you...
rear view mirror has come off completely, as if the adhesive on the bracket has dried up. I want to remove the bracket so I can stick it back to the windshield but no idea how. Tried with an adjustable wrench but no joy. Can anyone help?
I recently pulled the trigger on a 2020 520d Touring (last BMW was the Z4).
I am enjoying the comfort, technology and the 45mpg vs the 23mpg in my Z4 previously. I noticed some cool features on the car, so I thought I would make this video to share with you fellow 5er owners. I hope...

Can anyone give me the reccomended engine oil,transmission and coolant grades/products as Ive gone through various threads and its left me stumped.
My engine has started to make the dreaded timing chain grind on cold starts.
As the title explains I am having issues with a noise/rattle coming from my gearbox. This rattle is present from 1st to 3rd (I reckon) and after that it cant be heard!
Gearbox oil and filter were changed 10,000 miles ago using a Mann Filter part no H 50 001 and ATF oil spec Shell...
I tried removing the MAP sensor connector but it seems completely stuck. I unclipped the grey retainer but even applying quite a lot of pressure and wiggling around it doesn't want to budge. Am I safe spraying WD on it or does someone have any other tips for uncoupling a stuck sensor...

My iDrive has decided to enter a never ending reboot loop. It cannot load the navigation and then just resets. Repeat ad infinitum.
It happened during a 1100 mile journey. Started the car after a break and the navigation failed to load. I thought it was a signal thing that would pick sort...
In short, is it possible for a 2016 520d M Sport, to have the rear spoiler but not the Harman Kardon speakers?
To detail: Shopping about for 2016 5 series. Lots of choices but got a few narrowed down. From the majority of listings I've seen, the rear spoiler is always a part of the M...
Has someone been through this - I feel like I am in a very annoying massage chair that's got a bad motor. When idling, I can feel a vibration in the steering, driver seat, floor, and peddle, umm and the gear knob. When I rev the car between 80 and 120km it feels bouncy as if the wheels are not...
So I need to replace the cig lighter fuses which I have managed to locate behind the glove box. The problem is you can’t access the ones I need to change through the little door in the glove box. This means I am going to have to remove the glove box unless anyone knows of another way to do it...
I recently purchased a 2010 E61 520d which has the halogen projector headlights. Stupidly, i purchased the adaptive headlights (AHL) and thought it would be a straight swap (silly me!). That said, i'm even more confused now on what i need to do to fit them and have them work correctly...
So the two cig lighter ports are not working which likely means the fuses are blown.
The problem is I can’t locate a diagram which shows which fuses are where.
Does anyone have a link to such a diagram?
Or do you know which fuses are the ones I would need to change? Many thanks for...

Hi all - first post on here.
Picked up my F11 520d touring M Sport a fortnight ago, and so far loving life. Only 2 small related issues I've found:

2) Tried to update the firmware today, and every time it gets...

I have been experiencing problems with a sticking front passenger door lock on my 2013 520d F11 tourer.
The door button would not fully raise and in makes a repeated open attempt. I got a new one off Ebay for about £25.
