  1. BMWs spotted - The 'Was it you? forum!'
    Many people, including myself, are often quick to criticise BMW drivers, usually because they are failing to indicate and being driven in an agressive manner. So I feel it is only fair to praise people who are driving well. And thought I would register on here to thank you. I followed a 1...

    A question out of curiosity. It's possible to start the car, get out and walk around with the key fob in your pocket and the engine running. What if somebody then jumped in the car and drove away without the key fob? Would the engine switch off after a while?
  6. E90
    Hello everyone ! Today I bought a bmw 318i 2009 from a person who was driven the car without oil and brake it . I was a really cheap price and I bought it with a huge risk because I always wanted to buy a car like those ! I know a lot of problem can be caused by driving the car without oil but...
  7. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    not having my E46 for to long I have realised that the car is actually not a easy car to drive regarding the clutch control. I have driven a fair few manuals but the e46 is the hardest to drive by far... if your at crawling speed the clutch wants to be put down otherwise it wants to jump away...
  8. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hello everyone recently began posting threads. I happen to have a issue with my BMW 1 series 118d where whilst it is driven it makes a constant humming sound. Very hard to describe this sound actually. Windows fully closed and it just continuously makes the noise and I could say it gets louder...
  9. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi guys, hopefully someone will be able to help me with this. I've got a quite loud clunking sound coming from somewhere underneath my car when I go over little undulations in the road. It doesn't seem to do it when going over larger potholes. I thought it was coming from somewhere up the front...

    Hi all... Hope you had a good long weekend :) Basically we took our M3 in for a service a few weeks ago... Its only done a few hundred miles since its last MOT. BMW advises us were damaging the car due to not driving it. The car rarely sees the road and never comes out in the wet weather...

    Hi Guys Well a few have shown an interest in the car so i thought i would start a project thread and as some my know the car is a non runner at the moment , so until i get her running it will just be the basic stuff, but the good stuff, ie cams etc will come later down the road, as you can see...

    I just couldn't resist driving it this evening after a whole week of not doing so (only just got my Z3 a few weeks ago). I hit a patch of ice and my GOD :jaw-dropping it was all over the place with the the stability control flashing merrily away at me. Fair enough I dont have winter tyres on...

    Does anyone know when I have an "!" sign on the bottom right mileage (one you can reset) mean? Had this when starting the car and the ice sign in the middle. A separate issue, when I unlocked the car, the alarm light was constantly flashing, what does that mean? It only happened the once...

    Folks, Is the 318ti (built Feb 98) chain or cambelt driven? Also, second gear does'nt engage correctly, it'll crunch and stay in neutral unless its rammed in.... linkage or worn gear/synchro? Cheers, Kieran
  20. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I recently bought a '96 318is coupe, fsh, one owner etc. etc. the only niggling thing is a rumble... sounds like a bearing, but I'm pretty sure it's not any of the wheel bearings, but I could be proved wrong. Could the prop shaft be causing this? It is linked with road speed, not gear...
