    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I have a 325i 2.5ltr 2006 with 94k miles, does anyone else's engine use a fair bit oil?

Is this right as I have read some people...

    BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    The state of my exhaust tips is really bothering me. It’s clear that the previous owners never cleaned them and as much as I have tried I just can’t seem to get rid of the black marks that really bring down the look of the car. I’ve tried metal polish and wire wool but it’s like the metal is...
