That interior is insanely beautiful! Quick question though, it's odd how your armrest trim doesn't have the blanking plate for the non-existent mirror controls on the passenger side. Perhaps that's an individual thing? You can see what I mean this example pic on the very right, there is a black plate to cover where the mirror controls would normally be on a RHD car:

Small updates

Cleaning and waxing before installation



Replaced waterpump & flushed coolant system.

Saleri PA659S OEM pump, this is what you want.





Comma Xstream G48 G11 Blue coolant, which has BMW Approval.
I bought this from my local parts dealer.

And here we have first real technical problem with this car after i bought it 2018.
Some weeks ago when i was cruising hand brake yellow warning light + DSC warning light turned on with bling.
I took my DIS/GT1 software, and scanned all modules.
First i thought this is something common like ABS sensor. Nope, it was not.

Fault code was stored in DSC MK60 module, and it was from pressure sensor 2.
I found out from livedata, it gave crazy reading compared with sensor 1.

I bought new genuine sensor from BMW, and yesterday my friend did the job. 1,5hours of labour and bottle of fresh DOT4 brake fluid.
There was no any room for normal tools, we had to get hydraulic special open spanner with rachet (27mm), for access the old sensor.

Now there is new sensor, and readings are correct. Fingers crossed it was the fix.





Look that sensor 2 reading


Same livedata view from INPA / DSC MK60



As you can see there is no space for tools..


Old sensor
