    Hi, I've got an issue with my E36 328i, as it gets to operating temp stays there for a while then it stalls out and then doesn't want to start up again, it'll only start after it cools off.

    Hi, New to Bimmerforums. I have a problem with my 328 race car (it’s a internally standard M50 single Vanos but with a M52 intake manifold and aftermarket induction kit) in that it won’t rev over 6100 anymore but also won’t hold a steady throttle over 4500 at standstill. It’s a problem that...

    Hi, i have had my 1997 328i coupe for over a year now and a while ago it started developing a problem where it would cut out.

    Hi guy, hopefully you guys can give me a bit of a brainstorm on this issue. I've had the car about 8 months, it's always averaged about 15/16mpg on a 10+ mile run, but I've always overlooked it as an old 6cyl that drinks fuel. So this weekend I finished up some suspension work etc and thought...
