BMW 535d

How do! Going great actually, had both thermostats replaced about 2 weeks ago, not checked the temps myself yet, but my mate who fit them checked it on his snap on device, it was upto 92 degrees on a quick run, I’ll have a nosey myself, but safe to say it’s sorted, mpg’s Still s**t lol. Might have crept up a little.

Bar that, no issues at all, loving the luxury’s especially now the weathers getting worse, and no problems with the gearbox either ( fingers crossed )

Mapping next year.

Looks a nice example that, no doubt going off your other cars it is! 130k’s nothing looking on ebay, is it a winter run about? a mates on 187k mapped and driven hard, no problems.

Must cost you a fortune laying down extra tarmac each week to accommodate your new cars 👍
Got two diesels arriving this week this is one of them. I loved my old 535D and this was sooooo cheap i really couldn’t not buy it. I’ll provably do the swirl flap removal and put the inline thermostat in place over the next week.

They are bloody cheap, makes me think I should have got a cheaper one with more miles on. Great cars.

Just clocked 100k, running sweet, will be getting a service soon, been rocking my winter wheels for a while now, looks s**t!

My mate's refurbing my other wheels, sent a couple of pics, looking forwards to getting them back on.

Went in for the battery recall yesterday, service in the next couple of weeks, need to get a couple of rear tyres before the refurbed wheels go back on, going mid range, kumho/Hankook........ need to do a bit of research.

I highly recommend you DO NOT put Kumho PS91s on the back.

I gave them a try and they're now on the wear markers after just over 4,000 miles, run since November so not exactly warm and dry, and they have zero grip in anything other than perfectly dry conditions. Go figure!

I've got 4x Michelin PS4 going on this weekend. They may seem the more expensive tyre to buy, but the reality is they will cost half as much as the Kumhos, probably even less.
