    Hi all I have a 2008 3 litre diesel x5 and would love some help. My engine is making a whirring noise if I squeeze the vacuum hose coming out of the erg valve it stops. Does that mean I need to replace the erg valve? Or is the problem at the other end of the vacuum hose? Many thanks Adrian

  8. 2002 330Ci Clubsport - Faulty Xenons

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Factory Xenon lights, thoughts appreciated... Both lights have become, at best, intermittent and mostly not working at all. Switching off/on can make one fire up but both working is a distant memory. I don't have a good one to swap bits with. Obviously, I can just buy two ballasts and two...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    My car (2nd hand) came with the OEM Bluetooth option (inc. phone cradle) but I've never had Bluetooth working.
