  1. Hi all, I have the SRS Airbag warning in I-Drive with airbag and seatbelt lights on cluster. (04 e60 545i) Have bought a Creator 310+ BMW scan tool and spent the last couple of hours trying to find the fault/code. Checked all the obvious airbag related option, automatic search and specific vehicle search, no luck. Tried to find something on YouTube but limited when it comes to e60 airbag stuff. Any tips on using the Creator 310+ and airbag codes, sensors etc greatly appreciated.

    SRS Airbag warning lights

    So after buying scanners and relays and trying to clear codes myself!!! I got the passenger seat sensor replaced, codes cleared all good. Bit a dosh, but after months of procrastination I have finally have it sorted properly.

    badge removal

    I soaked mine with desolve it for half hour first, then used fishing line which came with new badges to remove, then a heat gun and more desolve it to remove left over foam and adhesive. Clean and polish and good as new. You Tube vids showed all the above and caution required with heat gun. I also took heaps of pics before and took measurements to ensure correct location of new badges.
  8. Has anyone bought these? Know if they're legal in NZ? Any good? Cheers http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/exterior/auction-1392765918.htm

    Gee are that that rare? Think I saw another one on TradeMe a month or two ago (black?), but that's all I've seen. Very nice weekend toy you have there.

    545i Msport in CHC, $1 auction

    Two and half hours to go and just over 5k I would hope it would at least double, surely this a 11k plus vehicle. Think those rims look sharp on this, sure I have seen them on a couple of other e60's. Think they're these: http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/128 There's another down there with issues starting at 3k and buy now of 5k. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1340186597
  13. Would the N62 fit? http://www.manheim.co.nz/damaged-vehicles/5039946/2003-bmw-545i-sedan?referringPage=SearchResults You maybe interested in this regardless.

    What's worse than de-badged BMW

    I think incorrectly re badging and not doing anything about it is worse. An e39 and an e60 M5 for the price of one. The very rare 523i M5 LOL it's even on carjam that way. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1319154400.htm The 550i M5, you would think a car sales would know better. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1277147209.htm Don't think it's an M-sport badge upside down, reckon it's code for WannaCry. It started by accident in the electronics of a BMW, cos lets face it these cars all make us WannaCry at some stage.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Yea they're 20's, I flick between changing to 18's and keeping, often. Had thought if I can find some style 135's and powder coat them gunmetal grey I would. Will see, love the current look but not the ride.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    So I finished my blackout de chrome thing. Looks ok I think. 50/50 on the grille, chrome vs gloss black, like the black but wonder if it makes it look tacky or cheap! Love the smoked out side indicators, they blend in and don't stand out like the clear ones, although the old ones were yellow and sun damaged. Black roundels look ok and quite like the black 545i. Nothing that can't be changed if I grow to dislike and return to factory if sold etc. Turtle wax tar and bug remover did a great job on bumper and mirrors and cleaned it with new foaming gun and microfibre mitts but splitting headache prevented me from even drying it let alone a polish of wax. Comes up alright with just a clean at the mo anyway. Edit: need to grow some balls and motivation to do the DIY headlight restoration and stone chip restoration also. Any tips for wheel cleaning, polishing, care etc
  19. It's nice aye, on the FaceBook site the owner offers to do a manual conversion with M5 parts.

    Can anyone shed some light on these wheels, they appear very similar to style 166 rims but aren't 19's. Are they an 18 inch reproduction? I'm considering getting some 18's and powder coating them gunmetal grey, was really looking for a set of 135's but these may work also. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/wheels-tyres/alloy-wheels/auction-1310556400.htm
