Latest work done on the car

Hi chaps

With the forum being a little quiet, thought I'd post some work I've had done for those still browsing the forum.


2011, 520d M Sport

Got 65,000 miles on it

Had new timing chain and guides done

Gearbox oil and filter change

Rear diff oil change

Front lower control arms

Serpentine belt

And new Pirelli tyres

Thanks
Sp

Nice one mate. Good work. Where did you get it done?

I want to do some work on mine too.

Hi there

I got an independent to do all the work

The parts were all genuine

Has given the car a new lease of life for sure

I'm looking to change the car battery this year

Still on original battery, 10 years old

Changed the key fob battery last week
That lasted 10 years.

Have you had any work done recently?

I may change my battery as well as a preventative measure. No, nothing at all on mine other than wheel refurb.

I'm in the process of researching which battery to go for and where to our purchase from

I'm after the exact same spec either Bosch or varta if it's a lot cheaper than the BMW dealer one


And apparently it needs coding


Some batteries on euro car parts were around £250. No idea they'd be that much

Mine is non stop start

I'm looking to replace mine as well. Alternator went after 168k miles (not bad) and left the current battery a little worse for wear.
After doing some research, there's a whole host of options....which can't all be correct for your specific car. I've seen Eurocarparts list one for 650. Looks like you can get away with somewhere between 150-250 depending on your preference. But look carefully at the spec. Best way would be to replicate the spec of your existing one.
Then it will need coding to the car. For me, best option is to buy Bimmerlink and do it yourself. I already have Bimmercode and a Bluetooth adapter so for me, it's just an additional 30 to purchase Bimmerlink. Then I also have the programme for anything else. I can't offer a comparison to asking a garage to do it as I've not enquired.
So yeah, not as simple as I'd hoped. Good luck

Ok what you said makes sense

Il try to replicate the current battery


If you do change your battery please keep us updated.

Many thanks
