  3. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hello All. Thinking of changing all the standard Halogen bulbs in my headlamps to the Blue Halogen versions (4000k Colour Temperature), just for a visual upgrade to give the headlamps a whiter look as the standard bulbs have a rather tired looking yellow tinge to them. On the BMW parts shop...
  4. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi All, I could really do with some advice here. I recently bought a 2007 E60 530D Sport and I love it. I think it's an LCI as it has the newer type gear knob and a few other bits that indicate it's not an earlier model. It looks like it's been looked after well for most of it's life but the...

    Took the high-level brake light from my E61 apart to day in an effort to fix it. Most of the LEDs were out so I thought I'd see if it was repairable. I managed to get the thing apart without destroying it. Inside are the cheapest surface mount PCBs imaginable. There are two strips with LEDs...

    Hi all. I find the headlights on my E46 coupe very poor and want to upgrade with ONB or PXV +130s. I'm 90%sure they're projector lenses (they look like a eye lens) but want to make sure first. Thanks, Jimbo

    Hoping someone would have had a similar issue: I went in for a MOT test today, but failed due to 2 issues, one of them will be fixed later this week but the other is a Brake fluid warning lamp inoperative. Does anyone know how to test where the issue might be? I.e. connector somewhere or...
  9. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    My 2001 E53 X5 3.0d gives me the dreaded "Stop! Engine Oil Pressure" warning and flickering Oil warning light. It does it once the engine reaches normal operating temperature (usually after 15-20 minutes driving) and is worse on hot days. In winter it hardly does it. It mostly does it when...

    I recently acquired a 1998 Z3, great car, however, the ACS(T) warning lamp is permanently light whilst running, it extinguishes after the the initial test of dashboard warning lights before the engine is started but is then back on as soon as the engine is running. A local garage (not BMW...

    A minor point but annoying... the two lamps on the inside of my boot lid don't have any covers/lenses. They are a different design to the all-in-one lamp underneath the rear shelf. Anyway... despite lots of digging in realoem they don't appear to be listed (or I can't see them). I suspect the...

    Anybody tried the blue bulbs that you can order directly from BMW? Are they as good as the MTEC superwhites? RealOEM Link I guess if price is reasonable, I can ask them to fit it next time the car is in for a service. Any experiences? The H7 bulbs is under 63112338076.

    [E46] Front Fog Lamp blanking caps - do they exist ? Hello guys n gals, I've just bought a 2003 E46 320d, and both front fog lamps are smashed (lenses and units). This is a cheap runaround car, so rather than having to invest in new fog lamps, I'd rather just cover up the holes if possible...

    Just thought I'd say hello. I've had my 56 plate 630i since new. (Its my wife's actually, so I don't drive it much, but I really enjoy it when I do.) Its really easy to live with and still drives like new. Its been reliable with only routine maintenance & some tyres now and again. (All I've...

    Hi Guys, New to the forum, so bear with me please. I've just had my BMW 316i mot'd yesterday and it failed amongst other things on - rear fog light not working and both fog light displays not illuminating on the dashboard. The actual rear fog light just needed a new bulb and front and back...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum so I thought I would try it out. I recently removed my swirl flaps all went fine but 24 hours later I have the increased emission lamp on, I blanked off the vacuum hose to the servo on the flaps. Will I just need to have code removed? Thanks.

    Ive noticed on these dark nights that the dip beam on the 318 is not all that good, in fact its pretty poor. The lens protector is a smoked affair. Would this be the cause of the dim lighting? would an upgrade to the bulbs be the way to go for better luminosity? Is so are there any recommended...
