    Hello, Ive got a 330ci. Car runs not too bad apart from a couple of issues. Firstly the traction control comes on very easily. Any roundabout it comes on with even a tiny amount of acceleration. If I boot it in first the whole thing freaks out and puts on the traction and handbrake light. Once...

    Hi All, I have a 220xd GT and I have a few questions: 1. When using snow socks with xdrive should I turn off DSC? Should I use socks only on front tyres or all 4? 2. In the manual it says in certain conditions, the parking brake will automatically activate when moving the gear to P. So far I...

    Hey, Just bought a 320d as a runaround, like it way more than I thought I would! I had a 93 518i about ten years ago so brings back good memories of that. Anyway, been doing a bit of reading around and the whole swirl flaps thing is giving me the heebie jeebies, is it possible to see if...

    I've just bought a 2016 (65 plate) X5 and when I've had previous BMWs I've gone onto google maps on my computer, found an address, gone to send to car and then it's been there ready and waiting when I've got to the car. Tried to do the same this time, no joy. Deleted my previous car history from...

    Please forgive the poor quality images, taken with a phone inside my garage where it was cooler. I changed the gear-stick on the car some while ago and immediately disliked the old selector display in parallel and vowed to do something about it. I tried a number of permutations and settled on...

    Hi folks, I have a 2005 525 wagon. Noticed a musty smell inside car of late, almost like a dead animal!, then this morning missus gets in and "coolant low" warning comes and goes away. She takes it out anyway but doesn't get any more warnings. I have a look at coolant level when she comes...

    Hi there I currently have DSG on my Audi TT and LOVE it. Except for the ever so slight delay and slow initial startup. Even in launch control it has this weird delay between releasing the break pedal and it leaping forward. Something to do with the ECU I believe, I'm not sure. Makes a pain...
