Re: Apex's Space Grey E82 120d

Does the exhaust sound any good? I’d like to improve the noise of my 120d but I’ve heard diesels with sportier exhausts that sound a bit, well, farty :lol: I did the mod purely for aesthetics! I know you can never make a diesel sound good without changing the whole system. The backbox delete virtua...

Re: Car been thrashed during recall service

I doubt that you can really tell from your telematics data that it was thrashed. Certainly it was driven inappropriately. I understand your feelings, but if it were driven in the way it appears to have been in an open road test would you still feel the same way ? Certainly it was braked and acceler...

Re: Car been thrashed during recall service

Quick update if anyone is interested. Been back and forth with the center manager and didn't really get anywhere. He's not admitting any wrong doing on their behalf and keeps trying to fob me off which is making it more frustrating for me! Insurance are a pain to get hold of but reckon it shouldn't ...

Re: Ticking noise at idle

Drives fine! I’ve heard it potentially could be the guibo flexi disc, so I might check the driveshaft for some play too. Would require the exhaust coming off which is going to be a pain!:(

Re: Ticking noise at idle

If its the front and low down can you see if your flexi pipe has cracked or if its the back wheel exhaust mount. Only trying to go off the video noise. I don't want to try say what it is and point you in wrong direction but the symptoms you describe and the noise sounds like a problem with the exha...

Ticking noise at idle

Hi all, Has anyone heard of this issue before? I when i lightly tap the pedal it seems to make a ticking noise. It also happens when I press the clutch down, then it stops when I reach a standstill. It seems the revs drop slightly from moving to standstill. This probably has only happened in the las...

With a multimeter, just run a voltage test from the source on the drivers side to each point within the plug for the sensor. If you have continuity then you’re good!

Re: Pdc not working

It might be worth testing the cables off each sensor. Get a multimeter and text the connection across each wire. I had similar codes and found a small cut in one of the wires.

Re: Car been thrashed during recall service

For everyone who’s interested the dispute is still ongoing, the centre manager kind of went back on his word and argued that it was all within normal procedures, and that the issues with the speeding would be dealt with internally. I’ve went to BMW UK and they’ve put my in touch with the service man...

Re: Car been thrashed during recall service

You're taking the p*ss :) Theres plenty of people giving helpful advice on this thread, for and against taking it further.
