I have moved up to a 2005 530D auto. It has the weirdest problem which I can not sort.
Start the car, revs and runs fine. Remain in Park. Take the revs to 1500 or over and it will mis-fire once, engine management light flicks once, revs drop and then all is fine. This will also occur if I...
I cannot reset the oil service on my car at all. Have tried using the idrive reset as well as on my autel diagnostic tool manual reset but to no avail. Even the local BMW techie could not reset it via idrive. Any ideas or help will be much appreciated! Thanks. Btw., i am in South Africa! Spring...
Just bought new car and presumed the new versions came with electric folding mirror with the dipping mirror for curb feature (like my F10 had). But this one is manual folding 😭 I'm notts/derby/leic way and wondering if there is anyway of getting electric mirrors fitted, even if retro fitted...
Hi, iv got a problem with 5th gear and only 5th gear I can't accelerate too hard or it just makes a slight thud and then struggles. No flare and only once did I get msg on I drive, All other gears work perfectly. The gearbox was serviced about 5000mls ago. Looking at towing a caravan so want...
I have a 54 plate 530D touring on big miles at 236k. Got it couple weeks ago and had fumes in cabin and turbo whoosh, otherwise all seemed good. Assumed I had old style exhaust manifold crack so ordered a cast one along with a CHRA as it was only £60 and not much extra work. Went from underneath...
Done more or less than I want to now, having it carbon cleaned, EGR delete (will then fit the egr delete kit) and remapped next week 30/08/2019.
Just a question though does anyone know a supplier of pre made stainless steel performance exhaust?
Hello i am marvin and new to this forum, im 31 years old and living in the netherlands, recently i bought a bmw 530d e61 out of 2006.
And now i got a problem with the car, from idle to 2500 rpm the performance is real poor and flat and after 2500rpm the car gets full boost and power, sometimes...
I have the chance of a highish mileage (160k) E60 530d with a manual gearbox from 2003
the car is cheap enough (listed at £1500), it has a few cosmetic issues (dents and scratches not rust) but otherwise is presentable.
Is there anything specific I need to look out for before buying? I am not...
Had this annoying noise since I've had the car (3months...).
It is engine related, gets faster with engine speed - taps once a second at idle.
It seems to be coming from the vac pump on the front, does that sound plausible?
Is the tapping a worn part, can the pump be replaced...
Looking for some tuning advice/options.
ive got a 2008 530d auto, looking at remap. Whats the score with a egr removal and possible decat. or centre box delete. Will this give much more power and response and stay safe for MOT emissions?
I have an E61 and the parking sensors dont seem to work. Looked online and seen some posts about them. Looks to be common.
Seen that if you listen to them you can hear it clicking........ I pressed the parking sensor button with the engine on and listeed to each one and couldnt hear...

Hi I need to remove the turbo from my 530d E60 Lci, Could someone who has done the job before advise what other items need removing in order to get the turbo out through the bottom? I understand the alloy strengthening plate and the DPF need removing, but what about the steering shaft or the...
A/C belt just snapped, it lasted longer than I expected though but I believe a few drops of engine oil accelerated its demise.
Most important question : is it safe to drive without it as I really need the car atm ? I can do without A/C for a few days, no problem on this part but I just...
