  1. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi everyone, I have just bought a 2nd hand 120d and noticed after purchase that the tyres on the rear are bigger than on the front. The front has 225/45R17 91w and the rear has 245/45ZR17 99w. Both these sizes are bigger than what the door frame pressure chart lists and therefore i have no...

    Am toying with the idea of buying a cheap car and doing a 10-15k mile road trip around Europe even into Turkey and Russia. Am just thinking if the car breaks down and beyond repair what could I do ? Something like that would really piss me off and I'd end up dumpling the car or just sell it...

  4. Auto Electrical Forum
    We have a 2007 BMW 120i E87 series. Great car, but a week ago, it developed a misfire. Years working on bikes told me it wasn't running on all 4 cylinders, so I booked it in to a garage with the diagnostic gear - not a main agent. They diagnosed a coil which had failed, and ended up replacing...

  6. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I have one key for my car and the battery has died. I have bought a new battery but as it's my only key, if I **** up fitting it I'm going to be screwed. So the question is, do I have a crack at it?

    They fail to mention in the selling of these products, that if you make a claim - this needs to be declared to your insurance company for your normal motor insurance. Failure to do so, could invalidate your insurance and affect your premiums in following years. I have asked for proof - so far...

    So - assuming all our cars are not about to stop with no electrics - or burst into flames - where is the affected cable causing this recall and can we do a visual check? I know my 325 is amongst the UK recall... Jeremy

    I know there are around 300k cars recalled in the UK, much MUCH less on the continent. According to my local BMW, my E91's VIN is not in the range of cars affected, however the build date is spot on and (which is much worse) the actual fault happened to me. Obviously BMW does not recognize my...

    Yes guys, I'm back! I've carried out a very thorough research on forums and here is my story: I drove my car back home on the M1 when suddenly my car felt like it lost all of its power. I could no longer accelerate and my rev would barely move upwards (I was on a hill too which didn't help and...

    So yesterday I purchased a 2011 320d E90. The mileage is reasonably high at 98k however the price was decent and has a full service history with BMW. ... However on day 2 of ownership the headlight washer jet motors have both failed ( don't retract ) and my serpentine ( I think ) pulley...

    So when I'm in neutral or whilst I'm driving, after I let of the throttle I can hear a loudish "clack!" Sound and also sometimes it is a rattle... Along with this the car has lost a lot of power. The noise seems to be coming from the air intake/manifold place.... This all happened after I...

    Car has been kind of hesitating prior to accelerating hard after long periods at 50mph sections of traffic. Then the other day it hesitated and then broke, lost power, very lumpy running, I coaxed it off the motorway and parked up. Then lumpy running got worse then high pitched squealing then...

    A new one today as I was just starting to drive the car: after 50 yards and a normal start up, I heard a massive bank like if someone had hit the car with a massive hammer, and then I saw oil on the road (centre and driver side ) when I reversed and smelled oil. I am guessing it is the gearbox...
