    General BMW Discussions
    Headlines in the press indicate its over for diesel.... I clearly have been living under a rock, I was not paying attention. Cars that are Euro 5 are gonna be hit. Euro 6 cars are ok for now but their value have seen 40% drops this year. And those driving older cars get virtually paid to...

    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    My wife finds the tailgate heavy to handle so I looked for a way of automating it. Obviously the cost of a BM retro-fit would be inconceivable even if they would do it. Got the local garage to fit one of these for me. Total cost just under £600. No connection to the product other than a very...

  11. The dreaded waste gate rattle!!!

    General BMW Discussions
    Would I be right in thinking that an 06/07 335i with full bmw service history would have been picked up by the dealer by now if it had waste gate problems? I'm just worried as I've got a mate that's just been quoted 3 grand to replace both turbos by bmw and don't want to fall in to the same...

    Had my car 320d e91 (177) 2008 for for full service about two weeks ago. A few hours later the car went into limp mode due to engine warning (orange). I read out the fault code but now forgot.
