    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi, I have a 1996 840ci. Purchased from a guy in London(why I mentioned this will make sense later). When driving normally everything is fine. Upshifts and downshifts are smooth. However when cruising at around 50-60mph (5th gear at any speed really) and I accelerate hard, the revs jump up...

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    Has anyone here tried to use an SSD as an external music source on a professional iDrive? Just wondered if it'd work. Also what's the largest capacity USB key that you've tried? This is on an E61, not that that matters too much. It's the fact that it's the Professional iDrive that matters most I...

  17. New shock absorbers are very hard

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Had 4 new Sachs/Boge OE shocks fitted to my car. 2003, E46, SE, 47k miles. It was recommended by the servicing garage due to age rather than any issue but I was told they were fairly worn when removed. New ones make the car feel more taut and well damped but there’s very little “give” in them...

  19. 2002 E46 N42 316i - Oil pan sensor stuck hard on sump

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I'm trying to remove the oil pan sensor from my 316i. After removing the 3 nuts, the sensor moves on one of three protruding bolts that are attached to the sump. However, with the other two, if I try to pull the sensor off, the bolts move/bend as well. I reckon if I apply too much pressure, I'll...
