    My missus had an issue when closing the roof last year. It started to close then stopped. I managed to put it back down and have been using the hard top ever since. When I looked through the history of the car, I noted that the boot loom was repaired 4 years ago. On investigation, I saw that...

    Had this issue with my passenger front window for quite a while now. The window does not go up with the master all window switch, it goes down bud not up. I installed a new switch yesterday and still the problem is there. More testing has revealed it's the 1 touch up operation that does not...

  11. 2006 E64 650i 'vert - key range terrible

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Evening folks. I've done a lot of searching and I suspect I know the right answer to this, but everything I've read has been about the E60 rather than the E64 so I figure it's worth checking.. My previous car was a 2004 645ci and the (diamond) key worked from miles away to unlock or lock the...

    Auto Electrical Forum
    We have two remote keys for the car and they have both stopped working this weekend. The cars can be started and doors locked and unlocked with the button inside. I first thought the batteries need looking at but 2 to stop on the same day would be too much of a coincidence. I've plugged my...

  16. £25k to spend, F12 650i or Audi s5 vert???

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi I'm in the process of selling my horrible 645ci and looking for a 12 plate onwards, RELIABLE replacement. I am torn between the 3.0T Audi S5 convertible Vs the 650i F12. I would remap either, so the Audi would go to 450bhp (with pulley mod), and the 650i bi-turbo will go to around 520... I...
