  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi guys, If I do not have the EGR mapped out after removal, will this cause me issues with the DPF in any way? Regen etc? Reading conflicting info online as usual so looking for a bit of guidance. Cheers. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

  3. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I posted a few weeks ago about an intermittent EML. Since I got the viechle back in November I've been using esso's supreme diesel and the EML was coming on intermittently every 30 miles or so. Now could be total coincidence but the last few times I've put fuel in I've used Morrisons basic...

    Hello experts, My car was driving 100% OK without any trouble. Just before the Christmas last year, a warning light came on about the battery not being charged. I took it to the garage, done a full servicing (which was due) and asked them to check how flat the battery is. They done the full...

I...
  6. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi guys, I'm after your experience and knowledge again. I recently fitted a new Air-con fan as the old one had seized previous to me buying the car. As soon as I turn on the ignition the new fan fires into action even though the Air-con is off, is this normal or should the fan come on only with...

    In the last couple of days, Ive noticed a problemw ith my clutch. When I begin to take my foot of the clutch, it appears as though the clutch is fine and working correctly. Just as the clutch comes up to the sitting position, it sticks and pops up that last couple of centimeters. This occurs...
  8. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all Due to low MPG I changed both thermostats on my engine as I never saw the temp rise anything above 78 degrees (even while driving up steep hills). Before the thermostat broke (stuck open) I was always able to achieve over 58MPG while driving at around 60 to 65 miles per hour taking it...
  9. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, Having recently bought a rather lovely 530D GT, I'm concerned some scumbag will try and pinch it using the key cloning via OBD method as reported in Watchdog and discussed a fair bit in these forums last autumn. When I spoke to the main dealer, I was told that the problem only affects the...
  10. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Interestingly I car-share with a guy who has a brand new Audi A4, we got into a discussion regarding AC. On the Audi, you can watch the effect of selecting the AC unit as detrimental to the instantaneous fuel consumption. I've never seen it mentioned on this forum, it seems inconceivable that...

    Hi all, I am still experiencing the low rev power problem that ive discussed on here previously. Ive scanned for fault codes and none found, checked the DISA, MAF, changed the exhaust cam sensor and am unsure whether to get the vanos seals changed. I was thinking of following Paddy's guide...
  13. BMW Chassis and Brakes
    Hello, I'm struggling to get the wheel alignment on my E46 right and although it's been on the system 3 times and looks to be set-up correctly, I'm not happy with the result and the steering wheel is always off centre. Every time I go back to have it checked the settings have changed, so it...
  14. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Dear All, I have a BMW 730d with standard 18" wheels on there, and I am thinking of putting 22" wheels on it. This means the profile will go down from 50 to 25 (I *think* thats what the guy said, anyway) - How much (if at all) will the smoothness and comfort of the ride be affected? The wheel...
