  1. Hello everyone, Does anybody know where the fuel filter is for a 2016 F30 335d? Youtube is suggesting it is within a small tunnel under the car. Surely not?
  2. Rattling could be the timing chain or incorrectly set valve clearances. Either the engine has been rebuilt badly, or it hasn't been rebuilt at all. I'd find a BMW specialist who could give the car a once over. You don't have to have them fix whatever is wrong. You can choose where you go. ANY smoke from tail pipe is an automatic MOT failure.
  3. Thanks Dave.Happy New Year to you, and your loved ones, too.
  4. Just return them and receive a full refund. Consumer law is on your side.
  5. Hi Lorraine, Frankly, I wouldn't bother. Plenty more cars out there: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=N47D20O0+problems
  6. Hi Brian, There's probably going to be an abundance of diesels available, given the way UK Government is going. Not sure about LPG. Auto trader is a good start. This example shows availability from London, but within 40 miles. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-search?postcode=w45rr&radius=40&make=BMW&model=X5&include-delivery-option=on A !Removed! extension, or not, enjoy...
  7. Welcome. Say hello and introduce yourself. I think you have to pay. I can update my system but not maps here. You need VIN: https://www.bmw.com/en/footer/software-updates.html

  10. Welcome Andy, I'm of a "similar" age and my 335d is as a result of my second mid life crisis. The first one returned me to motorcycling and the third one is saying.....M4, M4!
  11. Welcome Emma. There's quite a lot of errors there and it is an old car. Try and find a BMW specialist near you who could help, not BMW themselves you understand. Error codes aside, what is the problem with the car?
  12. I wasn't questioning you at all Dave, and I agree with you. There should be, no doubt is, a solution to the noise. I am amazed BMW have yet to solve it.
  13. "The reason for the noise level is the extremely high pressures at which the direct-injection fuel system runs. ... Second, the solenoids that control the fuel flow, both at the high-pressure pump and in the injectors, need to be much stronger in a DI engine and are consequently noisier."
