I noticed recently having travelled home the front hood emblem of my car went missing. I've gone and bought a new one but it doesn't fit the model of BMW I have. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how I may be able to obtain a replacement.
it's a BMW 118D SE 2012 plate
I have an 3 series F30. when I am breaking at slow speed. It makes a click click sound. Does not happen at high speed but I can also feel the clicks when I break. It’s not always and does not happen in reverse. Any ideas?
So I need to replace the cig lighter fuses which I have managed to locate behind the glove box. The problem is you can’t access the ones I need to change through the little door in the glove box. This means I am going to have to remove the glove box unless anyone knows of another way to do it...

Is there a way of using the standard radios bluetooth to stream music from my phone or do I need to either;
A) fit a USB cable to the phone and access it as a USB device.
B) buy some extra bit to act as an intermediary device/Bluetooth thingy between the phone and the radio.
When I hit 2-3revs a vibration appears right through the middle only when I'm accelerating. I've had a new clutch kit, dualmass flywheel, gearbox and its not fixed the issue. Tried the engine mount not that. Wheels are all balanced. Loosing my mind on what else to do!

Looking to buy my first BMW and found a manual 2012 318d locally. Just looking for any advice on what to check for and if the official mpg figures are remotely realistic.....! 62mpg combined would be great, but what can I expect...
Hi there. I’m really stuck on this so I really hope someone out there has the answer;
I have a 2012 E92 330D Sport Plus.
At a recent “Health Check” they claimed I need new rear shocks as mine are leaking. I’ve yet to confirm this but thought I’d price up the parts - about £170 each from BMW...

I'm new to BMW and new to Bimmerforums. I collected my 2012 F20 118i M Sport on Saturday and I'm absolutely in love.
The one gripe I have is the lack of Bluetooth audio streaming, but there are ways around that. To make my life easier and make it as compatible as possible when I'm...

Thanks for adding me

This is my first bummer, loving the X3 so far, got it due to have back issues, and so far getting in and out the vehicle is so easy on my back and it's so comfy.
Looking at doing some upgrading to her, but not sure what!
First post and looking for someone to do some coding in the Nottingham area - I can pay for your hassle and mainly need Bluetooth to play music!

Wouldn't mind additional coding like folding mirrors, lights, change...
I'm wondering if there is anyone in the Castleford area that has a known working ENET cable?
I purchased the cable from bcables recently, but I'm having issues getting the cable itself actually working. I've spoken to a number of users over on the f30 forums, and from the testing I've...
Hi all, For a few months my motor has been making a low rumbling noise that I can only describe as a washing machine when it is emptying its last bit of water so assume it is a motor of some sort. Only does this when it gets warm and can only hear it when it is idling. Has anybody else...

Been quoted £373 at BMW which is extortionate to say...
2012 520d (F12) - advice on wheels please
Hi. I have an F12 520d touring, and it runs on 17" wheels. I've had an offer of some 20"s, but wanted to ask whether a) they would make the ride much more crashy and b) whether they would make the already ocean liner-like turning circle far worse. Can...

BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
Hi I have a 2012 520d Touring. One morning I found the back of the car sat very low as if there was no air in the rear airbags. Over the next few weeks this happened around 4 times on the other occasions the car was fine ie sat high as it should be. (no middle ground ie half way down) I have...
