  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi All, I have the dreaded Restraint System fault come up on the dash again. I have already installed a bypass under the passenger seat and this was working fine for months, however it came up again. I cleared the error a few times but it kept coming up. I ordered a replacement bypass just in...
  2. BMW 2 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW F22
    Hi guys new on here, was looking for an answer for this everywhere and couldn't find one. Does anybody know the answer? I know the Competition has the OPF, but wasn't sure about the normal M2? If some of them have got it is there a way to know so I don't end up buying one with it?

    Hi, I just did one of those "while you're in there" moments and thought that it might be useful to report back. Most of the information comes from here, but not all together, so it may help others to see what worked and what to avoid. Car is a 2009 320D with N47 engine. N° 1 on the things to...

Does anyone have...

    Hey! First post, asking for help. Forgive me, i'm young and dumb when it comes to this stuff. I'll keep it short and sweet. Would really appreciate the help. Got my 2007 BMW 320D E90 (105k miles) I expected bad fuel economy but not this bad, so I done some digging. Saw the great ordeals with...

  8. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi Chaps I've discovered (to my horror) that I have some dreaded rust in the bottom centre of my driver's door. I don't yet know how bad it is (might take the door card off tomorrow to have a look inside). Along with some in the driver's side rear wheel arch.... So can anyone help with two...

    Hello, new on here. Recently purchased a 09 plate bme e90 325d. Only had it 3 weeks and few days ago and this evening the dpf light has come on! What is the best way to sort this!? I had it on my old 120d and had to get the guts removed but i don't really want to do that on this one!

    Hi, 530d on 2008 with 160k on clock, FSH, had refurb turbo done a month ago when DPF light was on as turbo had knackered. Driven around for a month all great, now DPF decides to come on again. It comes on after around 10-15 mins of driving and then goes off. Doesn't affect how the car drives...

    Hi all. I had a warning to top up the cooling system, two weeks ago, topping up took 2 liters, so looking down i could see the dreaded water trickle from the timing cover drain hole which meant the front seal had failed on the cooling transfer pipe. Throwing myself on the floor and wailing why...

    Hi I've dreaded this day and feel gutted. Had my m5 smg for a year and half nearly and I've dreaded this transmission problem ever arising. Well got in my car and started it as normal and the red cogs symbol popped up saying transmission fault take it to to nearest dealer. Car will run on...
  13. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I've had the yellow particle filter warning come up on my dash which I'm assuming is my dpf, I found out a couple of weeks ago my thermostats aren't working properly and it's not getting up to temperature so I was going to have them replaced next week. Once the thermostats are replaced and it's...

    Posted a few weeks ago about having flat spots and issues with turbo. Thought id heard the siren noise but it kind of went away. However it seems to sound like this all the time now. Hopefully i can attach it to this post.

    Hi all Bulb warning on the dash the other day. Seemed to only affect the side lights at first and when I put the full lights on (not full beam) they sorted themselves out. Now it's not working at all apart from on full beam. Pics below of the various light stages. I'm really dreading a arch...

    This might be a new thread of many threads, but I can't find any decent information on some of these angel eye threads apart from lux and mtec Basically I've got an e92 with the yucky yellow rings which puts me off. Now I know everyone reccomends either, Lux or Mtec But what if someone...

    Hi All, Been a member a few years with my old Estoril e53 4.6 but since it went a while back for the wife's 09 320d I thought it was time to move the wrx on and try a 5 series myself. Anyway, I bought a gorgeous silver mid 06 530d which looks (19" spiders, factory xenons etc) and drives just...

    Would I be right in thinking that an 06/07 335i with full bmw service history would have been picked up by the dealer by now if it had waste gate problems? I'm just worried as I've got a mate that's just been quoted 3 grand to replace both turbos by bmw and don't want to fall in to the same...
