    Hi guys picked up an E90 tonight. Love it but need some help with a yellow steering lock light. Done bit of research and have read that the Cas counter needs resetting? Anyone in North east can help? Or is there a way to get the software and do it myself?

    Hi, I have just got myself an BMW 525e. It had been stood up for a little while approx. 8 months I think. There are two main faults with the car which I'm wondering if they could be connected or totally separate. The rev counter and MPG needle does not work and the transmission light is on...

    Hi all, strange one for you... My Rev counter behaves very strangely indeed, 90% of the time I fire the engine up and its dead as a dodo, it doesnt even twitch, that is however up until I tap the top of the cluster whilst driving! It then springs to life and works, however it seems to be reading...

    Hi, new here, owned my 1995 840ci M60 since 2000 though it has rarely seen daylight. I believe her to be unique in exact specification and anyway rare - hellrot/black, manual. She has spent a massive amount of time SORN for personal financial reasons and is probably suffering as a result...

    Hi, I'm recently experiencing a strange issue. When I hard accelerate in 5th and 6th gear at around 2500 - 3000 RPMs (as the turbo is kicking in) the RPM gauge is jumping back and forth as the speed increases. I can feel the car pushing back and forth as it gets past 3000 RPM. Also I can cruise...

    Hi, My rev counter needle has started playing up and it keeps sticking. For example, if I drove to 60mph it would jump from 500rpm to 2000rpm to 2500rpm (random number just as an example). Has anyone else had this issue or can anyone recommend some troubleshooting steps to fixing it? Thanks
