    Just bought myself a previously owned X5 3.0d Sport with relatively low mileage and am keen to find out as much as I can about them. Previously I have been involved in POCUK (Pajero Owners Club) and have been driving Shoguns and Pajeros for the last 10 years or so, (still have to cross the...

    I was slightly disturbed the other day when the yellow oil level light lit up on the 330i 'Vert, about 150 miles after topping up. Concerned about a sudden rapid burning or leaking of oil, I checked the level, and it seemed okay. The light came on again a couple of hundred miles later on the...

    I've been thinking about paddle shift gear change on my pre LCI and wondered if it can be done? I know the E53-X5 can have this done using E46-3 series parts as their steering wheels are interchangeable, though i never did it myself. I know the basics, the correct steering wheel, obviously, and...

    Parked the car up tonight pulled the key and I could hear a low whirring as in a fan sound coming from behind the sat-nav and cd unit. Not heard this before. I thought this might be a heat thing and the fan will carry on till it reaches a set temp then cut out. Went back 10 mins later it's still...

    Well, here goes... I have just bought a 1997 328i M Sport. It is a solid decent example but, as is to be expected with any sixteen year-old car, has instantly become a long-term project to keep me busy for the next year or two... Cost: £1,200 I have already done a number of tidy-up...
