  1. E91 325i N52 Oil Leak - Part Identification

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi guys, I've been trying to track down an oil leak on my recently acquired E91 (325). The seller replaced the rocker gasket in a bid to sort, but it's not worked. Last weekend I got under the car and cleaned everything up as I wasn't sure if the oil was left over from the previous attempt...

  3. E46 325i - new PS pump, still groaning!! Help.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    A couple weeks ago I noticed the power steering was a little noisier than usual. Nothing terrible, just I could hear it more than before while parking. I decided to change the fluid, which was pretty murky looking. At the same time I took off the reservoir and back flushed it. Filter looked...
  4. e90 325i

    Hi been chasing a variety of electronic faults over the last two years. Still on that journey. Found ISTA + & ISTA P helpful for some faults but not a solution for everything. Dont bother with cheap readers they don't cure the fault, lucky if you get basic faults reset even after repairs...

  6. Help me diagnose my oil leaks (325i, with pictures)

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    My E46 325i is losing somewhere in the region of a litre of oil every two months or so. A couple of years ago I replaced the oil filter housing gasket, as there was oil around that side of the engine block. And that seemed to make an improvement. It was still losing oil however, and I think it...
  7. Thinking about going from E46 325i to E90 320d

    General BMW Discussions
    Can't decide whether to stick or twist. Been driving my first BMW for a few years now, an E46 325i. Aside from exploding brake issues, and exploding coolant system issues (in all honesty, it's not been the most trustworthy of cars I've had) it is nicely refined, and nice to drive. However...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, after suffering the slings and arrows of an Audi A5 for the last couple of years I have bought a lovely 325i tourer. It has a fully documented history and I notice that at 55K it had a new nox sensor, coil packs and injectors fitted free of charge. Was there a problem with these ? Also...

    Hi, I have a 2008 325i M sport coupe auto petrol on 17" alloys running run flats. Can anyone recommend a good mid range tyre for this car? Happy to pay a little more for something durable. I'm not fussed about ultra high performance; more interested in getting better fuel economy. Cheers
  10. E92 325i rear brakes binding.

    Technical Guides for the E90, E91, E92, E93, F30.
    Hello all! I’m having issues with the rear brakes of my 2008 325i (n53). As of a few days back the rear brakes are sticking and getting very hot. I have ordered new discs and pads (as they don’t look to clever) and out of impulse also got two calipers on the way. What’s bothering me is why...
  11. New e92 325i Owner

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2007 (N53) 325i e92 shape M sport (pics to follow if any interest) from a local independent in the Midlands. The main unique thing about it is the alcantara cloth M seats, which I personally prefer over leather from a looks and practical point of view... I love...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    So, need a bit of help diagnosing an issue with a car I recently purchased. In effect, I did the usual, bought it on eBay, late at night, after a few glasses of wine. Naturally, I did this unseen, knowing full well that the car had a fairly obvious misfire and was using a bit of oil. Previous...

    Good day forum members I am new here. I bought my first BMW (fell in love with the brand after driving a few E46's, an E90 and new 1 and 3 series). I am in love... and perhaps I may be overly cautious here, but I noticed something after using the car for 2 weeks now. I owned old diesel before...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    The car has had recent all new injectors and nox sensor just before I bought it recently. The engine sounds sweet when revved, but the idle sounds gruff like a diesel? Any thoughts or comments? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
