  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Were all diesel flavour E60/61 fitted with a DPF or were they introduced on some/all engines in a particular? Thinking about changing my 525i for a nasty oil burner but due to my not driving particularly long distances I’d rather avoid anything with a DPF. If they all have a DPF fitted I may...
  2. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I know this seemed to be an option on the diesel variants . It seems more were fitted to the E39s than the E60/61 but its something a lot of them have fitted in Colder parts of Europe. Im coming from running a Rover 75 Diesel which has a Webasto thermo top c fitted . It is designed to kick...

    The turbo is knackered on my N47 engined 520d I have looked at how to remove it in the Haynes manual and it says that the downpipe/cat needs to be removed, which means supporting the engine and removing the cross member. I have removed the air filter, hoses, exhaust heat-shield etc. and it...

    My E61 530D has developed a tapping noise from the top end of the engine, and I am trying to work out what is causing it. It taps at half engine speed, so camshaft speed, it sounds similar to a slack tappet. I have heard that various things might be the cause, including a worn tappet, faulty...

    Having recently acquired an E61 (2008) beemer, the CCC it came with turned out to be faulty. Amazingly i convinced the dealer to sort it out. I now have a CCC unit 'spare'. It exhibits all the usual symptoms of lousy manufacture/design - ie works & then doesn't work then works again. highly...

    I have a 530D, I already have a C110 code reader, which certainly does have its uses. My question is - what else would be worth having that would be of much greater worth - without spending loads of money? Many talk about INPa DIS and just recently Carly - which I haven't heard of before - but...
  8. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Firstly, I'm not sure if this is the right area so please feel free to move. I've been trying to find a 535D E61 LCI with the right spec and miles but as yet haven't come across one with the SAT. I know it is possible to retrofit but don't have the inclination etc. to try this myself. Are there...
  9. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Morning everyone, looking for some experiences so I can go forward with my eyes open. I've just sold my kit car so looking to replace my 530D with a 550i so I can get at least some of the fun back. I need a 5 due to family and being 6'6" tall and think the M5 is pushing it a little too far...

    Hi, new here, this seems to be the best BMW forum around so I've signed up. About to take the plunge into BMW ownership, probably with a 525d of 2007/8 vintage. There seem to be a lot around with about 100k miles on them, I'm fine with that but I just wondered if there's anything major...
  11. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I have asked this question on other forums, and not got a straight answer - so I will try again here - there IS a gauge of sorts on the rev counter, which gives the maximum allowable revs whilst the engine warms up. On mine when fully warm, the markings start at 4,600 rpm, maybe the rest of you...

    I have had issues with mpg for a while now, as my dash displays some quite low figures. Having lashed out to replace a split exhaust manifold, I wanted to see what effect (if any) the new manifold had made on mpg, so I went into iDrive and zeroed the mpg reading on the OBC, this resulted in some...
  13. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, first post here. Hoping for some help. Started driving my dads 2004 535d, 125k miles, quite recently for odd journeys here and there and I have started working through all the problems I have found - now hit a bit of a wall. Bit of history on the car: Was covered by warranty up until...

    Can someone please help me to clear the "Service rear brake pads" warning message - I replaced the brake pads yesterday, I tried clearing it in the iDrive , but no luck. I checked in Haynes today, and it said to turn on the ignition, but not start the engine, and then press the milometer button...
  15. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi, I was away on holiday in Cornwall last week, and inadvertently hit a particularly bad pothole (fortunately at very slow speed) in a pub car park, that really crashed into the hole. All seemed Ok afterwards, until a couple of days later, I noticed a rear tyre was a bit low, and on checking...

    Hi all Has anyone fitted anything other than the standard side indicator repeaters? I noticed that there was some condensation in one of my repeaters so decided to buy some that are F10/11 look a-likes. My car is black and I bought gloss black. At first when I took them out of the box, I...
  17. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    A strange question? Here's where I'm coming from with this... 18 months ago I bought a late 2004 e61 2.5 petrol with the standard ZF auto 'box. It suffered from the dreaded transmission slam, which amongst other things, ultimately led me to get rid of the car. So as an interim runaround, I...
  18. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    As per title. I found an E60/61 M47 head on ebay at a price that would be silly to refuse! Is it the same as mine being a later model? Could do with knowing before I spend any money on rebuilding it.

    Did anyone see the news tonight where there was an E60 or E61 stranded in flood water, down south I think , who in their right mind would do that? Or was it YOU own up please and let us know how it happened.
