The boyfriend who kept jump starting the car at the battery terminals and constantly said its nothing to do with what he did!! (bearing in mind it was a flat battery one morning previous to this the car ran fine) as now taken the car to his friend who knows a lot about BMW`s so it will be interesting to hear what feedback will come from this will keep you posted when I hear anything.
Thanks for the update Paul, never heard of that before and I have fixed a few oil leaks over the years. I have seen Oil filter put back without a sealing O ring, Split oil cooler, Split oil pipes, I have even see a situation where the old oil filter had broken up and the new filter forced in on top of the remains.
Good Luck with BMW
Welcome to the Forum
That is a first, I don't think I have ever heard of "Bike Carrier Prepared" before !!
All the bike carriers I have seen mount on the Tow Bar and use the tow bar electrics. Most Tow bar fitting companies will have a dedicated wiring kit that makes it pretty much plug and play I know both Witter and Westfalia do check their websites and agents.
Hope this helps
Westfalia are BMW OEM suppliers
I purchased my 2018 BMW X1 last year and was told it had been "Bike Carrier Prepared". I am now looking to fit a Towbar and was wondering if I will still need a dedicated wiring kit for the Towbar?
I have been told by an audi owning friend that His audi came "Towbar Prepared" and that covers all the relevant wiring.
