    Hi all! My E87 with N46 engine (120i) started showing the amber engine light. A fault code readout shows p0366 (2b63) camshaft sensor, exhaust. A sensor replacement made no difference. Cleaned the vanos and swapped position - no difference. The car starts and runs as usual. The car has done...

But then once you turn it off it won’t start again just cranks over but not firing up. Any ideas? I’ve ordered a new sensor but not sure...

Can anyone recommend a dashcam for my 440i which looks roughly OEM, and will quickly activate and record if it detects a bump at all? how much would BMW charge to fit their own dashcam you reckon? if i shopped...

    Hi guys, Looking at getting a dash cam soon and narrowed it down between Thinkware f800 pro or blackvue DR750S-2CH. Ive decided on the Thinkware as it is better for the parking mode and had problems in car parks etc. Does anyone have either of these? This needs to be hardwired to the car and...
