  1. I agree with Dave. The IDrive update is not an issue just ensure you keep all original bills/invoices. Oh and Kwikfit is a complete no, no - even for tyres or exhausts.
  2. Is there still air in the system? You mention burping. I'd try a pressure test on the cooling system. Will show up any leaks.
  3. My 3 series pick up road noise too. Turn the radio up! Otherwise, try some research: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=best+tyres+for+bmw+X1+
  4. This would be my choice when my existing run flats have worn out: https://www.tyrereviews.com/Tyre/Michelin/Pilot-Sport-4.htm I then need to invest in one of these: https://www.thewheelshop.co.uk
  5. Yes it does sound bad. Sounds top end. Small end/s? Valve train? Its very hard to diagnose just by listening. I'd have a BMW specialist (NOT BMW dealer) have a look at it. It sounds like a diesel engine!
  6. Not sure about all engines, Dave. Mine is N57Z. BMW deny it has one as does a main dealer (Lancasters - Bury St. Edmunds). My hand book says drive for 30 miles or 40 minutes (I think. Something like that, anyway) - then check oil level using IDrive, and with engine running. It shows an oil level gauge on screen! https://www.autoscopecarcare.com/bmw-forum/bmw-low-oil-sensor-how-do-i-know-if-my-bmw-is-low-on-oil/
  7. Just been to a BMW specialist for service + MOT. They showed me where there dipstick is, depsite BMW and their appointed dealers saying the engine dosen't have one!! Its easily accessible under the bonnet, from the nearside of car. You don't need to remove the engine cover. 2016 335d
  8. These people are very helpful: customer.information@bmw.co.uk
  9. I used this chap the other day. Very impressed. He will travel an hour radius away from Thetford, Norfolk.
  10. Diesels work in a different way and it may actually cause harm fitting an aftermarket exhaust. In terms of sound, on a diesel, it won't make a blind bit of difference. It will sound the same wherever you get exhaust from.
  11. You may struggle here. I think most members are from the UK.
  12. Yes I would, and did. I use the manual controls quite a bit too.
  13. I used BimmerCode a long time ago to get the car the way I wanted. Was delighted with result/s. Having a play with it today and notice you can set all windows to close and the car to lock with the remote. Mine wasn't set so have enabled it. Good if there's a few of you in car. You can ensure all windows are closed when they get out of car.
  14. They normally take yours in and use the bones of it, then fit new parts to it.
