    Yet again today I have experienced foul abusive messages from people who do not agree with the rules of this group. They aren't too strict, but I feel what's the point of carrying on when people (trolls) feel it's ok to send you such vile filth via personal message? I am considering seriously about closing this group down. If members cannot abide by simple admin rules then what's the point?

    Please note, it is only the odd few, most of you give no cause for alarm at all, but it is the few that spoil it for the majority.

        Logic 7 mucking about — BMW E60 61 Owners UK

        Logic 7 mucking about ???

        It's the pro nav and system with Bluetooth and aux input

        It's a 2008 lci 535d

        Basically the rear shelf speakers dip in sound from time to time

        They always work just the sound goes up and down for no apparent reason does when loud and when low.

        I must also say my radio signal is crap that dips in & out of signal

        Not sure if it's related ?

          Hi guys im looking to go into a 5 series pretty soon, i think im gonna go for a 530d msport just have a few questions ive never really had autos but theres alot more autos about then manuals. But ive heard these cars have big problems with the auto boxes in the pre lci versions ? Can anyone confirm what the problems are and what year if any the gearboxes are reliable ? do u recommend an auto ? Are there any other problems to look for ? Lastly there seems to be 2 types of autos one with a normal shift stick and one with a joystick type set up? Can anyone explain the differences between the 2 ?

              Hi all — BMW E60 61 Owners UK

              Hi all,

              I bought myself a 525 d SE tourer pre LCI with M Sport body kit. I soon discovered after buying it the car had an intermitent fault; every now and again on forst start up hot or cold the car would go into limo home mode, disabling transmission functions, ABS, Servotronic and TPMS.

              First couple of times it happen I was very concerned to say the least.

              So 3 months on and spending lots of time testing various components I got it down to the alternator of all things!

              I thought I woukd share this info with you guys just in case anyone else comes across the issue.

              I am looking into a cheaper alternative to the diversity unit replacement if anyone knows of anything your thoughts/knowledge is apreciated.

              Tia

                Finally got my codes read today

                The throttle/ air mass / air pressure sensors would they have popped up because they have been disconnected whilst I done the swirl flaps and thermostats over the last few weeks ??

                Once cleared they didn't come back on only particle filter did

                It's all suggesting dpf is fooked !!!

                It now doesn't wanna Rev over 3000 rpm

                I've had the pipe off the big turbo and the core seems good very little movement.

                I'm getting dpf deleted along with egr and remap next weekend

                Fingers crossed it cures my problems

                  Poxy boot lock — BMW E60 61 Owners UK

                  Poxy boot lock !!!!!

                  It's driving me mad lol

                  I fixed the wiring loom where it pinchs brown wire and black and white wire were snapped

                  A previous owner butchered the barrel so the key just turns all the way round !!!

                  The boot works off the fob perfect

                  It also works off the switch in the car and in the boot lid.

                  But whenever I move off the car bings and says the boots open and bings every time I stop then drive off again !!

                  It's driving me mad.

                  I've also established that unless the microswitch on the back of the key barrel is pushed in the fob, switch in the car and bootlid switch don't work

                  But I can't put the boot down otherwise I won't be able to get in the boot I'll be snookered.

                  Any ideas guys it can't be the first time this has happened ??

                    Hi there,

                    I have a problem with my BMW 535d 2004. When I press the accelerator it is fine on the first and second gear. After third gear it looses power, goes into emergency mode and stops accelerating. It becomes really slow no matter how much I press the accelerator. When I switch the engine off and on again the problem seems to be fixed but it happens again after the third gear. Does anyone have the same problem and know whats wrong with the car. I checked the car with eco and it shows no mistakes.

                    Thanks a lot in advance

                        Took my 535D over to Nottingham Tuesday for a visit to the infamous Aaron Court Court for full engine and gearbox service. Not used the car since so I gave it a good run out today from Telford to Hereford. The gearbox feels like new again and it's done 82k. Smoother gear changes and gear change is lower at 1.5 revs instead of 2k. Aaron is very methodical with his work and has done a great job. So if you're looking to get your auto gearbox serviced then I can highly recommend Aaron Court as will others in this group. Going back to him next month to get all my vac pipes changed.

                              Anyone else running M5 interior in their E60? These are adaptive seats from a 2008/9 M5 in my 550. Bought the seats in Germany then had my centre console, door cards & half dash trimmed to match. It was a nightmare to fit as all the electrics were different to my car and my dash lit up like a Christmas tree but luckily a friend of mine is a genius with these things and he made his own looms & managed to code out all the faults. It was a long slog but well worth the effort as you don't see many of this colour in E70's and I'm glad I went for this instead of red

                                      A set of genuine BMW OEM style 95 alloy wheels & tyres. Wheels were professional powder coated 2 months ago. They're not cracked, bent or buckled what-so-ever. The same time I had a set of TOYO T1 Sport tyres fitted and balanced. They have 6-7mm tread all round.

                                      Wheel sizes are 5x120, 9x19 IS 24 and 10x19 IS 24. Tyre sizes are 245/40/19 and 275x35x19.

                                      These have been on my BMW 740i e38 and I know they will fit other BMW models, just check to make sure.

                                      First person to view will definitely buy them so make sure it's you.

                                      Collection only please.

                                        Right here's a good one for you guys. I broke down the other day in my 530d e61. Wasn't 100% certain what the issue was but suspected torque converter. It wasn't that...... gearbox sump had no filings in it but oil smelt really bad so changed the sump and filter and fresh oil. Changed the crankshaft position sensor. Car was running fine. But when I turned right out of a junction or at a roundabout she started spluttering like I was low on fuel. Seemed to pick up when straightened up. But once the engine was up to temp the car would just splutter. It stalled at the lights, restarted fine and will rev normal in neutral. Can select gear without a problem but as soon as I apply throttle it just stutters and dies like it's starved of fuel. Also whilst I was being towed on a bar engine was ticking over fine but as soon as we turned right it cut out. So in simple terms it cuts out when turning right and I can't apply throttle. Sounds like a fuel issue but has anyone got any ideas as to what? Sorry for the long winded message.

                                            the time may be coming up soon lads..

                                            what do u think its worth 535d

                                            would say its got every extra bar 1-2 things!

                                            individual paint , everything on this car has been replaced by bmw warranty from rear diff/suspension all the way through to the turbos. inc windscreens lol

                                            has logic 7 , hud , comfort seats , heated seats , DMS remapped , piano wood interior , champagne leather , adaptive xenons

                                            think its prob one of the cleanest out there with 110k ,

                                            dosent miss a beat !! swirls removed FULL bmw history , its had engine oil changes every 5k in my possesion

                                            no issues with car just getting company car
