  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, New to BMW, bought a 2015 520D Touring last year and noticed that the distance to next service never changes. It was 3700 when I bought the car and I've done 2500 so far and it still states 3700 to next service! Is there a fault or does it require a reset by the dealer or something? Thanks

    Hi! I just purchased my E60 550i and I noticed PDC led was blinking on dash. Inside the trunk I found a spare module on the boot/trunk. I changed the modules and PDC started to work...

    BMW independent recently changed my discs and pads and fitted a new sensor. What should the 'distance remaining' show? It currently says 18k miles and I don't think this is correct (happened to say the same as the old one).

    Hi , I bought this car at Christmas and it is fantastic, apart from the radio. As a Tourer the radio should hold on to national stations such as radio2. The radio signal is quickly lost and I am left with crackles. I have gone over the handbook but cannot trace the cause. Autodab seems to be...

    I've kept the OBC on distance to empty to this week to see how it drops and rises depending on traffic. However, I have noticed an odd trend. On Monday when I got to work my odo was at 100miles and D2E was showing about 160miles to empty, I knew I wouldn't get that much, but anyway, that night...

    When I put the gearbox into reverse I get the audio sound for about 5-7 seconds then stops. This is every time, I could be yards away from anything at the rear. If I drive in reverse there is no audio warning when I am nearing an object that I could bash into. Checked plugs/sockets on PDC box...
