    After getting my new car de-mapped (it turns out the remap my car (unknowingly at the time!) came with (by Performance Direct of Barnsley), was the cause of the cold running issues, white smoke, misfiring & hunting for the 1st few minutes of idling. It's not done that since their remap has gone...

    Hi there New to the forum, after a bit of advice. Just noticed that the thing at the top in the picture (hose protector box , conduit?) is resting loosely on top of the engine cover on my 56 e91 320d. Not too sure how long it’s been like that but pretty sure I’d have noticed it before. Can’t...

    Seasons Greetings Folks, My 2010 E91 has developed a creak around the right hand side pillar area, I've checked under the bonnet for the torsion bar bolts and they're as tight as they should be so it's something else. The RHS vent clip recently broke so been thinking it could be related to...

    Hi There, I've swapped my 17" MSport alloys for some OEM 16"alloys with Winter Tyres, they're making a right racket, as though the wheel bearings need attention. The Tyres are the Dunlops that are sold as part of the BMW winter tyre package. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Thanks...

    I was pleasantly surprised when doing a steep hill-start this afternoon that the car didn't roll back as soon as I took my foot off the brake - foot comes off and the brake stays on for a few seconds before rolling. Is this a standard feature on e90s? if not then it's an extra I didn't know it...

    I have the shitty base unit that consist of pathetic 4 mid range fitted at the doors. Wanted some decent Coaxial replacement or Logic 7 mid range and tweeter to run off the head unit without a separate amp. Will pay top ££ for decent Focal or Rockford fosgate setup. Not really into blasting...

    Has anyone fitted a cheap oil level sensor to an E90/1/2/3? Do they work? I have fitted a £15 one but still have a fault code. Someone mentioned that you should only fit a BMW sensor. These are £161 !

    Every now and then I can hear what sounds like a rapid metallic ticking noise. It happens every few weeks and is present for around 15 minutes, its more audible at lower speeds and is exacerbated when you apply even light throttle. I thought it could be the chain tensioner at first but it seems...

    Having owned both an E39 touring and an E46 touring, I am now the bored owner of a b5.5 VW Passat. So now I am exploring options: maybe an E39 again, but they're heavy and here we're taxed by fuel type and weight class (a 1651-1750kg diesel means tou have to fork over an annual 2000 euros)...

    My current dpf has been gutted. I've bought a used dpf and am in the process of cleaning it. When this dpf is fitted I will need to ensure other elements of the engine are operational to perform a regen. From looking up I understand that some regens are passive i.e just happen naturally due...
