    Hi I have a 530d ( E60) 2003 with 180K on clock. The car has recently been giving out black smoke when I accelerate ( common) but although not noticeable when driving , after a long journey the back of the car starts to get covered in black soot, so much that after a few trips, it needs to be...

    Hello all, I have been researching many sites about performance of BMW diesels since my particulate filter clogged at 126000 and garage said was due to warped cam rod producing misfire. Since then have serviced regularly and been using forte to keep clean and paying particular attention to...

    Hi, just a thought as i seem to be having the same juddering that most diesels are having on here. Couple of years ago a few lads on the Audi forum used a maplin sourced ulrasonic cleaner (£50) to clean their injectors, made a massive difference by all accounts. I'm happy to go out and buy...

    Thought I'd share some firsthand experience with the instrument cluster on an e36. I had some faded parts on my cluster, fuel gauge and temp gauge specifically for some reason, took it out and tried changing the bulbs to new stock ones with no effect. Even tried led, which looked fake guess the...

    Hi all, Given that my old man and myself + friends all have E36s or E39s I've had the opportunity to run through some sets of standard brake discs. The experience is that, given normal usage including rare instances of heavy/panic braking, if it isn't OEM it'll warp. This is without shock...

    Do I need to replace the actual tensioner pulley or the shock damper thing? Belt will be replaced anyway. The belt feels too loose - I can deflect it about 15mm and at idle it chirps like a budgie! Any help appreciated. Rob

    Problem was the warning light would come on when the engine was idling for example at traffic lights, roundabouts, opening the garage door etc. Local garage fitted a new fuel filter. Did 20 miles, light comes on. Garage said fit a new air mass sensor. I asked will it cure the problem? They said...
