  1. BMW E63 630i (2008) heavy condensation/damp

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all first post on the forums, I have a 2008 630i coupe, and I need to replace the weather strip/seal that goes around the top of the window trim linked to the roof, as I beleive this is the main factor of the damp and condensation. However Im having little luck actually finding anything...
  2. 630i Sport, humming noise from rear?

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi, I have had my 630i Sport for just over a year and it has been fine.. has a fbmwsh, now on 79k.. Having driven 800 miles in 3 days down to Cornwall for a short 3 day break, I was aware of a humming noise that sounded like it was coming from the rear. I suspect wheel bearing, the humming noise...
  3. 630i High pressure fuel pump failure

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi guys, looking for some guidance to avoid being ripped off. My car failed to start one day and had it towed to my garage/mechanic. I went to see him today and have been told my high pressure fuel pump has gone. He has said to me that he may need to take away and re do the belt/timing chain as...
  4. E63 (630i 2008 LCI) wirelessly mobile phone charger modification - cheap, less than £11

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all, I wanted a cheap method of wirelessly using my phone in the car. First mod was a bluetooth receiver. The second part was wirelessly charging the phone. My 630i (E63) has the generic phone snap-in tray, but nothing available for a Samsung S7. Instead, I bought a DIY wireless charging...
  5. E63 (2008 630i LCI N53 engine) injector replacement, coding?

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all, I’ve acquired a nice 630i, though it has a couple of issues. The one I’m least sure about is a faulty injector. No3 injector seems to be leaking when the engine is off. Cold start is rough for a couple of minutes. I’ve trawled through the threads on cold start, decided to take the...
  6. 630i very rough idle (sometimes)

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all! My 630i (06 plate) occasionally idles very roughly indeed. It literally shakes the car at lights/junctions etc. Whilst exhibiting this issue, the power also comes in spurts and surges, making driving on a busy street both embarrassing and a bit frightening! Also whilst exhibiting this...
  7. BMW 630i Cooling Sytem Refresh

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    So after several months of weeping, my radiator has gone full-on incontinent. I'm planning to replace the main hoses while I'm at it. Any recommendations for hoses other than OE? I see plenty of Febi and Gates at reasonable prices....
  8. BMW e63 630i Modue Updates

    BMW ECU Tuning and Standalone Tuning
    My 2006 E63 630i (N52) has a slight flat spot around 1300 RPM and a very slight idle pulse of about 20-30 RPM. Having replaced many of the suspect hardware (sparks, coils, vanos solenoids, check return valves, PCV, Eccentric Shaft Sensor, and tested for vacuum leaks, it was suggested that I...
  9. E63 630i 03/2006 Auto - Which radiator

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi All, My 630i has been sipping coolant for the past while but is now at the point where I've been able to locate the leak (bottom corner, automatic transmission oil heat exchanger side, where all the dirt/leaves collects and rots behind the grill.). With all the plastic housing around the...
  10. E63 630i or 645i OR E46 M3 - opinions

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi Guys Looking at a few of these online and love how they look. A nice GT cruiser. There are a few 630i's up and they look really clean, however I feel the power might be a let down (currently driving a remapped E60 530d MS). So I will loose a lot of torque and drivability I think. The 645i...
  11. BMW 630i intermittent hesitation

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hello everyone, first post, owned many BMWs but very annoyed about this one. I bought it about 6 months ago, black, ivory leather, full bmw history, 100k on the clock, auto, 2007. It drives great and I generally look after them very well. It started a couple of months ago when it would hesitate...

  14. E63 2007 630i Struts

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hello All, I have been searching for front shock absorbers (struts) for my 630i. I only found Bilstien with part number 22 221490. Interestingly, this article is being specified for both 650i and 630i. BMW specify two different part numbers for front struts. Anyone with Bilstein experience or...
  15. 630i sipping a little coolant

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all BMW tech heads! As well as sipping a little engine oil now and then (which I've heard is really par the course for these big engines) my 630i occasionally asks for a top up of coolant. It only takes a little to resume normality, a 1/4 of a pint here and there, maybe once a month. Is...
  16. 06 E63 630i rough idle (sometimes)

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all! My 630i sometimes has a rough idle. Today it was pretty bad, the low surges even making the car lurch gently when 'creeping' in traffic. Normally engaging drive stops it in its tracks. It hasn't done it for a while, and a restart (even whilst the engine is still warm/hot) often cures it...
  17. 630i Sport

    Well, it’s been 6 years since my last post when I owned an E39 523i... well now I return with a BMW 630i, it’s a 2006 model, 73000 miles with full main dealer service history and just 2 previous owners. It’s a gorgeous car and an absolute opposite to my mk2 Focus RS. PICS.

    08 630i exterior door handle Hi peoples, I have just started to get a problem opening my drivers door from the outside. I start to lift the handle and only goes half way when I feel it hit a stop rather than go all the way and open. If I wiggle the aft end of the handle it will open ok...
  19. What engine oil for a BMW 630i? Plus a few other questions.

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all wise ones! I've been advised it would be a good idea (and I was certainly looking to do this anyway) to carry a bottle of oil 'just in case' at all times in my 630i. She's done 118k miles and has a FSH, every repair bill/service etc, everything! My 630i is my 1st BMW and I'll only really...
  20. 630i (E63) Blown Engine (automatic)

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi All, Last week I was on a driving holiday in Europe when my engine blew. I was accelerating past a tractor from 25mph and at 45mph there was a loud bang and the dashboard lit up telling to stop. When I lifted the bonnet, I saw a 4" hole in the engine block from which I managed to retrieve...
