Already faced with the surprise problem of my iDrive thing not connecting properly to my Android phone....
Hoping my questions about mechanical...
So, BMW have announced they won't be replacing the 3 Series GT model. Why anyone would want to buy the GT versions of the 3/5 series is beyond me, but hey, each to their own.

I am a newbie here. I am in the process of opting out from the company car scheme. And all things considered, I have shortlisted and in the market looking for a F07 5 series GT. Particularly a 535d or 535i.
Any suggestions on what to look out for when doing the test drives?.
First post for me I believe. I have a 2014 GT and made a bit of a rookie mistake on my part I will admit. Washed the car on the weekend, took it for a quick spin to dry it off and parked up. Thought nothing of it, having done it a number of times in the past. When I jumped in a...
Hi, new to forum so apologies if posting in wrong place. Does anyone know how to replace number plate lights on 520d GT. took boot liner off and undone small bolts to no avail. Can’t pop off externally as no way to force out of casing. Thanks I’m anticipation
Does any one have full details how to replace the rear light unit on the boot lid?

but cant tell how the inner edge is attached or if the boot liner needs removing.
Due to the tyre noise generated by the run flat tyres, I'm considering fitting standard tyres to my GT, has anyone done this before, any issues or thoughts? I plan to carry a run flat tyre repair kit (Slime do a good one, with compressor built in).
Anyone done this before, any issues...
Hi all. I just bought recently my Gt and noticed that on the dashboard show " boot open" . I did turn these plastic bolts and now is doesn't open at all and still showing on dashboard. Any thoughts on this. Many thanks.
I am new to the forum and recently acquired a 2014 530d GT.
As most of my driving is mainly done in and around town, I would like to know what to look out for in terms of DPF regens. I used to be very familiar with my E350 Mercedes, but this is new ground for me. Are there any...
Hi guys. For about a month I have had a window anti trap warning come up on the dashboard, however the window still operated fine. I tried to remove the warning by doing the resetting of the stops on the switch but this didn't work either. As of Friday The window started to not go back up...
I'm a Toyota mechanic.
A friend has a 2010 535iGT (F07).
The Rear Suspension Air Pump works and has pressure (blows air) (short black air line across the pump), however, the leveling valve, the one who has the two air lines (blue and red) for the two rear air spring bags, does NOT blow any...
Picked beemer up this week - first impressions:
My first BMW - Why a 218 GT?
Simple, it's a family car with proper build quality.
Also, good economy, enough performance, excellent safety features, interior is easily the best in its class.
Do I think it drives well? Compared to an...

I have a genuine GT wing on my 36. I have been asked to sell it but as it is genuine I want to know what to ask if I do decide to let it go. What are they worth these days, I can only find replicas on ebay. It is sprayed avus blue and in very good nick. I don't have risers.
In the last week on 3 occasions i have gone to my car on the drive and the tailgate has been open on the hatchback, now i could have caught the key fob to open the tailgate but 3 times ???
