    Vehicle : BMW 520D Touring

    Trim : M Sport Business

    Engine : 2.0 d

    Year : 2010

    Default Recommendations please

    Off on holiday/ visit the inlaws in July. While the evenings will be full of vodka and beer swilling with the family the days are a little boring once they are at work. After going for a run and walking the dog in the local hills there's not a lot left to do until they get back and we start again.

    What I'm wanting to do is use the time to mod/ improve the car.

    So far I'm thinking

    * Interior LED conversion (blue)
    * Fit an aux socket
    * Attempt window tinting

    Any ideas on what I can use the time to do with mods/ maintenance?

    Getting ideas now so I can get all the bits before going

    Going to buy it here and take it with me. It's cheap to get it done over there but I want to have a go at least. A little sense of achievement hopefully

    Replace the inlet manifold
    Replace DMF (and clutch, while you're at it)
    Replace 3rd injector wiring
    Clean EGR valve
    Next day, decide cleaned EGR valve hasn't made any difference, so replace EGR valve.
    Replace broken coil springs
