    This car is my toy and LOVE IT. It has been mint for the last 5yrs and 30k. However, 6 wks ago I drove it into the garage, tried to start it last week and crank but no start. Wierd.

    Ive got a BMW E46 M3 that is at 71,000 miles and is in excellent condition for its age. It has fully refurbed wheels, has just been detailed at a professional detailing studio so the paint is near perfection ( minus a few stone chips on the front bumper), full service history with all the...

    On cold starts, my 318ti does not want to go forwards when you put it in drive - if you accelerate a bit it just revs in neutral (that's what it sounds like anyway). However if I put it into tiptronic manual mode and force 1st or 2nd gear the car does move forward and drives normally. Once the...

    Hello! First post on here, I’m afraid I am not the most mechanic minded and I find there is so much information on google that it’s hard to decipher down to your vehicle. I own a 330ci E46 2002 sport in orient blue and I need a newOSF arch as mine is shagged. Does anyone know if for instance...

    I had to use a rubber pipe I found to do a DIY fix within the intake manifold because a rodent decided to nest and chew it, was wondering on the actual name of the pipe I’m holding with pliers so I can get it replaced as the pipe I put on was only a temporary fix.
