    Hello guys. I have last week bought a BMW F10 520D 2.0L (2014). I have a slight issue with the steering. When driving, the steering turns more times to the left, by itself (sometimes to the right also), by about 35° - 40°. It feels as if its turning it self, rather than drifting. After a couple...

    Hi everyone and thank you for always helping. I recently purchased a 520Da with 5000 miles and after another 500 miles driven, I feel a shake/vibrating over the car and steering when high speed. It appears when you drive over 75 miles and gets incremented if you go faster. You can feel the...

    Hi all, First post, so please bare with me if I’ve not followed any particular rules. I’ve recently brought a 2011 520d se. Made the very silly mistake of not checking heated seats before I brought it (was in the summer, so not top of the agenda at the time) anyway... The lights for the heated...

    Hi all, I was wondering why my 520dat 2011-model is missing the "twin power turbo" text on the engine cover. I believe the engine in this car is N47 which I know is single turbo, the text is only a marketing trick. But I have seen other F11 with identical engines having the engine cover with...

    NBT coding error Hello, I got a car with retrofitted NBT, VO and FDL coding both end with error (something about WSDI_CPS error). So I guess NBT since its retrofitted has different vin than car has thats why it doesnt let me code it, am I right? So I need to save FA and change VIN from...

    My E39 520d 2003 is going past 300k in the next couple days and i want to do a bigger service on it, but what should i do? I have noticed it is begging to get lazy, and i need more rpm to get to the acceleration kick. Just changed the diesel filter, engine oil filter, engine mounts and tranny...

    I have been searching through 520d's online and in dealerships, and for some reason I have yet to find an M Sport with the M Sport Plus package to have an actual rear spoiler! It clearly says on the specification that it includes one, but I've only seen a carbon one on a 540i with an M...

    I've recently found that my iDrive said that the engine oil level is too high, i've checked the dipstick and it is indeed a bit over max (around 3-4 mm). Now i drive the car only on short distances and mainly in the city and i've read that the DPF may be a cause for increased oil levels. I...

    Hi, the 2-buttons open/close windows in the drivers door, which operate the drivers+passenger windows, are jammed. They close the windows, by pulling up. However, they refuse to budge down-wards, thus unable to open the 2 front windows. If I open using the remote fob, I can then close both...

    Hello all, I have a 520d 2005 model. I have had it for over a year and a half now, when I first got it, it was in a bad way. Lots of little jobs needed doing plus EGR and main thermo. After doing all of these and a bottle of Forte DPF my car felt so much more responsive and smoother. The main...

    Hello All, Had an advisory from the MOT that one of the air springs on my 520d F11 has a bulge in it and needs to be replaced, and then passed a quote for £959! The car has been lately letting out air when you park up, and occasionally sits really low on the back wheels but pumps back up...

    Hi fellow BMW fans/users. I am in need of your wisdom. I own a 520d 2011 model. I would like to be able to leave one of the two sides back and front lights open, during the night, for occasions where my car might be parked in roads with insufficient light. You know, provide clear visibility of...
