    I have a 2011 325i N53. I have it 6 months now and haven’t had any problems with it until now. First thing I noticed not right was when I pressed button to start and it cranked but didn’t start. I pressed button again after couple seconds to stop it and it started as normal on second attempt...

    Hi, I bought a 325 Ci about 2 months ago with a cleaned engine, I have just changed the anti roll bar bushes and found an oil leak coming from the top of the engine at the front but I don't think its the rocker cover gasket, is it the vanos unit? Is it an easy fix?

  9. 2004 e46 325i - DME problem causing single cylinder misfire?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, I have a persistent misfire on cylinder #4. I have pretty conclusively eliminated plug, coils, injectors, compression, or DISA as the cause. Spark plug tester indicates that there is no spark, but just on that one cylinder. 12v and ground to coil connector are good. I am not sure how to test...
