  10. E60 520d Swirl flap options?

    General BMW Discussions
    I've just got myself an E60 520d (pre LCI) with the M47 engine. I understand the swirl flaps are a bit of a problem, so am looking at blanking them. Is it worth getting "genuine" PWM blanking plates and gaskets, or are the Kienau ones off eBay decent? My other thought was, is there anywhere...
  11. 2008 E93 320i - Radio display completely Blank

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    After leaving my car parked at my local airport for a week I returned to find the radio completely dead. After driving about 10 miles it suddenly came to life and worked perfectly. The next day it was dead again. It seems to 'hibernate' after been left overnight and then takes between 2 and 20...

  14. BMW e91 330D- To blank or not to blank 192K miles swirl flaps

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Will be doing an inlet manifold clean, as well as some other bits of maintenance whilst it is off. My understanding is that the new swirl flaps aren't prone to failure, however at my mileage it must be likely they are worn. I hear they help with low down rpm torque. If i were to blank them...
  15. blank seat heating buttons

    General BMW Discussions
    Im just about to pick up a 2008 e93 which ive been told has no heated seats. However the centre console has buttons (blank) for the seats and the three lights above each button for the seat power indication.

At the moment it lights up white when the ignition is on. From what I've read it's a fairly common problem related to the Trafficmaster...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I've had a thought... And before anyone says it, yes it did hurt. I know about stopping the egr from opening by removing its vac pipe essentially blanks it with it's associated removal in software, so what is the benefit of fitting a blank in place of the egr and has anyone tried blanking it...
  20. idrive blank after removing cd

    The I Section- I-drive, I-pods and I-phones
    I bought an e60 520d but the p**** who owned it before thought its classy to add a cheap headunit and relocate the original cd player to the glovebox, this was done with the worst amount of splicing and hacking ever, nonetheless the sound was very crap and the headunit died on me the other day...
