  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I'm told that I need a new main motor for my non-functioning 1999 320i roof, and I thought I'd have a go myself. The part my BMW dealer has given me is 8353577, but all I can find on eBay is a Bosch motor with an OEM No. of 13851049, and saying it's equivalent to BMW part 8353576. So is it...
  2. E30
    1989 325i Cabriolet This car was originally bought by my grandad new 30 years ago and it was kept in a garage and well looked after. I've just bought it off him as he can't drive it as much anymore and he knows that I've always loved it. I'm not 100% but I think that its Cirrusblau Metallic...
  3. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi Guys, I got my E36 in November, it came with 3 keys- all original with 2 of them being central locking remotes. My remote central locking hasn't worked since I've had it and I can't figure out why. I have tried initialising both keys (holding the unlock and pressing the lock button 3 times)...

    Having been quoted £1400 to replace three damaged M sport alloys, we are thinking of going for a set of aftermarket alloys. Any advice gratefully received, especially any recommended brands that work with run flats.

    Hi Guys The top storage cover is not fully closing because some of the hood material does not fully detract into the storage area. Some of the material rests on the back behind the rear headrests and, consequently, the top cover does not fit snuggly down. Is there any adjustment that would...

  7. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I have a 1994 320i Cabriolet with a sticking power roof. I release the handle and press the switch and the roof starts to lift up and the lid opens. When the front of the roof gets to about vertical the roof jams. If I give it a shove in the right direction it will then fold down into the box...
  8. BMW Tuning Forum
    There seems to be quite a lot of conflicting advice on this forum (and others) about the best approach to suspension upgrades for the E36 328i. Mine has already had ball joints and bushings replaced less than 3000 miles ago by the previous owner, and the car has only done 60k miles. However...

About 5 weeks ago I picked up a tidy 2007 E93 325i in decent condition, I collected it the the night before flying to Denmark for 2 weeks visiting family over there...
  11. General BMW Discussions
    Hi all, First post (actually second !) - so please be gentle with me. I have a 1999 E36 323 Cabriolet which we have had in the family for nearly 10 years now. Love the car, so much so we wont ever sell it. It has a fully automatic roof and has developed a problem at the weekend when you go to...

  13. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi All, Not been on here for a while, but I am getting desperate in search for E30 spares. I'm locked out my car with no option but to break a window but I need to source a new one first. Can anyone guide me to a person breaking a cabby for spares or repair? Hope you can help Paul
  14. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Can anyone tell me if there is a cheap scan tool available to tell me why the ABS warning light is on please? My car doesn't have an OBDII port inside the car, just the round port under the bonnet. Does that make it OBDI? Also, do the sensors need to be fully fitted in order to clear the...
  15. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    My speedo doesn't work for the first half mile or so after the car has stood overnight and then seems to be not quite right in operation in that it doesn't seem to react smoothly when I slow down. I had an auto electrician put a diagnostic tester on and it came up with 'speed sensor faulty'...
  16. Technical Guides for the E46
    Hi all. I'm thinking of buying the above and took it for a test drive. I no nothing about this gearbox type but in drive it was very slow to change up producing quite a pronounced lag. It was fine with the paddles. The dealer said there was a switch which adjusts the speed of the change. Is this...
  17. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi guys, I'm a complete novice, so bear with me. An engine light has come up on the dash while my car was in for bodywork repairs after someone hit me on the road. The garage have said there's a 'large' oil leak that has gotten into the spark plugs and ignition coils and contaminated the...
  18. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi All, I've searched high and low and a number of BMW forums for guidance on my issue without success. I recently bought an E30 which had been off the road for some time but came from my friend with MOT. After connecting the battery, a short trip to the petrol station and back, I locked it...
  19. General BMW Discussions
    Hi everyone I was hoping that someone might know how to fix this issue as I think it's a common fault. I took the door card off and played about with the motor and got it to work but it's stopped again. I think I have diagnosed the issue down to the fully automatic roof mechanism. When I...

    Just picked up a donor car for my 318is going to stick the 2.8I m52 in from my donor car. A few niggly things that im unsure of or maybe characteristics of the 6 pots is: A very hard to press accelerator pedal-my 318is is fairly hard bit this is much worse. Any ideas?! The clutch - my 318is...
