    Hello (1st post!) I am considering buying an F30 335i and have a question about the servicing messages. It says that front pads need to be replaced "in 40,000 miles" does that mean in 40,000 miles time or when the car reaches 40,000 miles? it is currently at 39,000. I'm guessing it means at...

    I'm not sure if this is a generic problem with all top of the range BMW 3, 5 or 7 models or just specific to the E65 7-series? I've got a facelift 2006 E65 and the passenger mirror just goes round and round and stops in the strangest of positions?:confused? I know it's had a knock at some point...

    Hi all, I am hoping someone can clear something up for me. My 325ti SE has done 115k now and the shockers have had it. I want to replace them and would prefer a more M Sport feel to the car. It is an SE but with M Sport parts apart from the bumpers. Whether it came like this from new I don't...

    I have installed my rear window but when fully zippered part of the top is not closed. It may be that I have started the zipper on the wrong paper of the top. I feel like an idiot but after looking at a lot of pictures it is still not clear where to start the new window so it follows the top...

    I acquired a pile of Osram Nightbraker bulbs and was going to fit them in the FTPs. The RealOEM diagrams describe the bulb as an H1. However, on breaking it open the bulb has a short bit of wire on it with a spade connector. Doesn't that make it an H3 (as opposed to an H1 where the spade is on...

This is a...
