Went to drive it last Sunday and when putting Sophia in her seat (after the cold start black smog cloud had cleared obviously), it became apparent that not only was the passenger left hand side rather a lot lower than it should be, but it also sounded like air was escaping from something rather alot quicker than it was going in
Being that the other one will no doubt fail soon, i bought 2 Aerosus rear airbags from Germany. 50% off plus free delivery meant a bargain £105 all in. Ordered Monday afternoon, arrived Wednesday morning. Then realised my 2 ton jack and axle stands are designed for Clios, not a house on wheels, so need to borrow Sarah's dads 3 tonne one ... have also now accumulated all the parts for a CIC and combox retrofit ...
I’ve been looking at E92 M3’s and it’s sad but it puts me right off. I know they can be changed but I sure know I couldn’t do it myself.Forget how dated the CCC system is, Looks like it's from the 90s
Glad mine came with the CIC already done, Just need to get thr newer controller to finish it off
I only wish the guy that done it had the combox retrofitted as well for the Bluetooth integration as well, Feels a backwards step coming from the Megane that had that as standard
I honestly could not be arsed with any of that. Sat Nav on my phone, slapped on the window/vent.
Simon they are a bit s**t.
Think the car saw us taking the paddling pool into the flat (we use it as a playpen) and got jealous.Should have bought the S6 with egg wheels.
At least it wasn’t pretending to be a swimming pool.
The sunroofs are fine lol, its the muppets that never clean out the drains thats the problem.I f**king hate sunroofs. Especially ones made by BMW
No. Mine were ok tbh. Some definite oil leak, but i didnt really have to clean much up at all.Lol. Its been an absolute pain!!
Out of interest, were all your hoses etc to the right of the manifold literally caked in sludge and oily gunk? Mine is absolutely disgusting .... got through about 8 pairs of disposable gloves so far.
Genuine tears at the bucket.

Ps. I’m on gardening leave, so happy to come and help if your fingers aren’t up to it
You can hold him over the engine bay while he spanners.
Ouch. I did mine without removing the inlet :/ The X5 must be harder for access!

I've bought some picks to break the bloody tabs off, but if that doesnt work ...
.... this does sound like an excellent plan. Also, your bear hands could deffo get the tabs undone, if they could fit in the stupidly small space that is
Yeah, its far worse than the 335d for some reason, alot of the US guys remove the coolant hose above the controller to get to it on the X5 (as well as the manifold), but it can just about be done without if you're lucky, there is space to wiggle it out between all the pipes. If you can get the tabs undone lol.
Jealous!! Mine has deffo been leaking for a while. Want to give it a bit of a clean up in case i have to go in there ever again, absolutely minging currently!
