    Hey guys I'm having a "power cut" issue in my 2000 323i. When clutch kicking in any gear other than first, the power (revs) seems to just shut down. For example when in 2nd year, if I rev it to 5-6k with the clutch in then lift the clutch (clutch kick) the revs drop 3k and I can't seem to...

    Kick down plate is not depressing properly and can't figure out what's wrong with it. I unscrewed it but it looks fine. I can't see how it operates though. It doesn't depress anything and there are no cables? Even Real OEM is throwing me for a loop. It's showing what seems like two options for...

    Looking for a set of four m sport kick plates to suit a 2005 E61. Got to be in good condition. Even if you only have one or two I’ll take them. Also looking for genuine floor mats in grey velour or black. Or any ideas where I can pick up new ones without spending over £100! Photo for attention...

    I have a 2012 F10 with some damage to the front sill kick panel, primarily the letter 'M' and front metal arrow. I can get a replacement kick panel but I'd rather just replace the damaged metal strips/letter with new stickers. Can anyone advise where I can purchase such a set? Thanks in advance...

    Hi I had to refix a the door molding of my e36 coupe. Top tip after many tires and a number of broken clips, and the trim not staying put, I was wondering if I ordered the right ones. I had. The trick I found was to actually put the clips into the door first and then push the trim on pretty...

    Hi I've been reading some posts which appear to be relevant but being a real layman need someone to tell me whether the conclusions I'm reaching are right? My 330d SE auto 2003 has developed a warm start problem. Always starts fine from cold but intermittently from trying to start from warm/hot...

    As per the description in the title. My 535d M Sport has a flaky issue I have just noticed whereby when I start the vehicle, none of the dials work. They all appear dead, ie Speedo, MPH, Eco gauge and Rev counter. No errors or lights appear on the dash and the car starts with no problem and...

    Hi Guys, I have a E60 525d Msport,2008. When driving the car one day I went to use kickdown and the revs picked up but no power?? I took my car to a BMW expert who removed the internals out of the DPF and removed all the software off the ECU for all the sensors which were on the DPF. (This...

    Hi to everyone! I bought few year ago an 850i dated 1991, imported from japan and while I tried to do the stomp test I discovered that there was no kick down switch and not even the bulb on engine check.. There is a way to scan the faults without connecting to the 20 pin . Thanks ..

    Hi everyone, Recently my Dad and I replaced the coolant in my 02 E46 316i and after leaving it running for a while to get it fully bled through we thought it was strange that the fanwasn't coming on, after that we noticed the dial was just coming off the 12 o'clock position so with haste rolled...

    Hi All I have just got a 2012 E92 M3 with the DCT box and i have a question about the way it accelerates after kick down. SO if i am cruising at say about 30mph and mash my foot to the floor, it changes down instantly and the revs fly up as expected although it take a good second or so before...

    quick question about my 2013 steptronic auto 330D. Should it always kick down when stomping on the pedal,even in sport mode?.I would have though you should have more control when in sport mode and the stick across to manual,but if i drop a gear to say 3000 revs and press hard it still seems to...

    I was accelerating from a roundabout and my X5 3.0l diesil and it sounded as if it was bouncing off the rev limiter at 4000 rpm. It has since done this at 3500 rpm. This morning it would only rev to 3500 rpm initially, then it would hit 4000 rpm, sitting on my drive. the acceleration seems ok...

    Morning all I've just bought a new 318 and have noticed that I get a slight kick back through the gear lever when going from 2nd to 3rd. Going from 4th to 3rd is fine. It always goes in and hasn't popped out of gear or anything, but it just seems a bit weird. I'm going to ring the dealer this...
