    Just picked up a 635d (2008) 2 weeks ago. Having had a remapped E60 30d before, I know what these diesels can do. However 2 questions on the 35d engines - What power will I get with DPF and EGR still on there Is it safe for the box - I know the LCI can handle 700nm according to online jibber...

    I mean I know that hp or power is difrence. But where that difference comes from. I think engines are same size. Maybe tuned in the different way. My car is imported from Italy to Finland, and they might have sold engines tuned differently in Italy. Maybe engine is a bit smaller or injects...

    I have had two previous autos, an E46 330i saloon and an E46 B3 3.3 Alpina, both of which failed on me at around the 100k mark but which I eventually got to understand is fairly normal at that mileage unless the ATM fluid has been regularly refreshed every 50-60k miles? I've had several other...

    Hi I will try to cut a long story short but I have been troubled for the last 4-5 months with engine management light keep coming on. The code indicated an air leak. Well we replaced all the small vacuum pipes, it seemed ok for 200 miles then back on again. As the engine did not seem to be...

  8. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hello! I'm looking to buy an f10 or f11 (2010-2012) and I have some questions about the engines. I've heard that the 3.0 diesel engines are fairly reliable and I've also heard that the petrol engines and 2.0 d are not. But looking at the cars I can afford there is a massive difference in...
  9. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    I have a 2.0D in my 2015 X1 which is fine but drove a 2.5X1 (I think same engine but significantly more powerful) and was blown away. Intrigued: what is the difference? if they are both twin turbo 2 litre engines is it simply engine mapping or has the more powerful one got bigger turbos etc...
  10. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I'm in the market for a LCI E60, my first BMW. I'm from Hungary, my budget would cover anything, even a 550i but you can't really find one here. So, my first conception was a 535D because of the mpg (kmpg in my case) and torque but since I started looking deeper into E60s, people seem to think...

    The future of BMW engine tech revealed | Auto Express 450nm for a 231bhp engine seems low compared to current 231bhp engines but then again it will weigh less seen as it will be a 4 pot and may be even a Carbon Core chassis like the new 7.

    My 2008 525d has started using a little bit of oil, I've had to put in maybe a litre in the last 3000 miles so not major but more than I'd expect. The car has done 110k miles, back in the olden days when I was a lad people tended to put a thicker grade of oil in older engines. Engines have...

    Hi all, I'll expect abuse for this one, but what's your thoughts on the Testla model S? I have seen a few about and they look good for having no real engine, and they move... What's your thoughts on the viability of an electric sports car? N

    Hi Folks, I just thought I'd share my recent experience in the hope of helping anybody else avoid unnecessary expense. After smelling burning oil from under the bonnet of my (new to me) 2009 525i I took it to a local BMW specialist and had the valve cover gasket replaced as it was possible to...

    Hi all, New to the forum and my first post. My car is a 1 series, 118i , 1.5cc auto, late 2015. This is my first auto and experience with the 3 cylinder engine. I am finding that as I reach 1800 / 2000 revs, 60 mph up over the engine noise changes to a very noticeable drone and a slight...

    Hi All. I am trying to compile some information on the 1 series, but it looks like the 118i comes with a few different engine sizes. Is there somewhere I can find all the information on these for the variants released in the UK? I am confusing myself with all the information :( I am only...

    Hi Guys, I've lived for 2 years now in England (from Austria, originally) and thinking it's about time I buy a car. Been an Econobox driver all my life (Toyotas). Also, never owned a diesel. I am seeing on Autotrader some really nice 2010 3-Series under GBP 6000, 320i and 320d (E90 Facelift)...

    Hi All Have the above car with only 5885 on the clock, due for it first service in Dec 15. I've noticed a "tinny rattle" when the car is started up from cold, it lasts a few minutes but this is only from start up when cold i.e. overnight. Reading up about the N20 a lot of people mention its...
