I've just seen a second hand 320d XDrive that I like the look of, for around £12,200. It's a Luxury edition with Xenon headlamps, sunroof and the professional navigation system. The car has 65k miles on it and used to be a company car.
My only major gripe is the service history and the...
BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
Hi, having a problem with my e36 323 (late 98 model)
Basically it needs a crank sensor, cant get a direct replacement from anywhere.
So i started looking in to why i couldn't get 1.
I found that apparently BMW did a loom and sensor conversion back in the day.
Does anyone thow about this?
Hi guys, ive just bought a late 2008 E61, i keep reading that the BMW diagnostic software is available to download and run from a laptop but although i can find loads of links none of them work, can anyone point me in the right direction for the download as i would like to have it on standby for...
Hi all hoping for a little help from someone with intimate knowledge of M57 engines.
I am likely to purchase an early E90 330d with the M57 engine. The car has had a cam chain failure so although probably recoverable has the potential to require engine replacement.
The variant of the M57 in...
Hi all, looking for some advice.
I'm in the market for a 5 series, my heart says 530d but my brain, pocket, insuarnce costs and family would mean I most likely go the 520d route. My budget is 25k max including trade in of current car.
Would you recommend to go for a late F10 with all the bugs...

After my gearbox selector started not knowing what position it was in I decided to take the switch to bits to give it a clean. If anybody is interested...
You can't see it here, but there was signs on the aluminium backplate of slight water ingress in one corner which I suspect is the root...
BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
I've had my turbo core changed to hybrid on a mapped e46 BMW 330 cd. The injectors have been re nozzled and 1 replaced.
Turbo full boost was around 2000 pre turbo core change. Since the change I've run easy for about 200 miles and now whilst goving constant throttle i can feel the turbo full...
i am new to the forum and am looking for a late 635csi highline motorsport to buy. ideally i would like a macau blue one with lotus white leather. if anyone can help please let me know
I'm in a position where I'm having to sell my current car. I'll be trading in my Discovery 4 and will be going for a 5 series. I'm doing this as the wife was made redundant last year and I need something cheaper to run. Due to having high milage and can't afford to put much down on another car I...
Hi all looking at buying a e46 coupe, it's got 2 rust spots, both spots are on the drivers sill, above the side skirt, I'm just wondering how treatable is this? Or by time you see it there is it too late and it will be pretty bad once the skirt is removed and that's just the tip of the iceberg...
Looking for a good, sub 100k mile, post 96/97 (so 4.4 not 4.0 v8) 840 ci sport.
Prefer darker colours and black or silver grey interior. Looking to spend up to £13k for the right car and willing to travel.
Will replace my 1993 Saab 9000 Aero as my classic toy.

I hope I've posted this in the most relevant place. If not, then please accept my apologies. I'm investigating the possibility of swapping my partner's QashQai for a BMW Estate. I've just bought my second E36 and she's rather taken with it, but wants something broadly equivalent that feels a bit...
Just saying hello, I actually registered in 2011 but never posted!
Finally I thought I'd say hello.
I've got a 1999 E46 323Ci with the following spec:
R32 GTS-T RB20DET engine & box
After market plenum
CR Turbos T38 hybrid turbo
I'm swapping an M52B25 engine and manual gearbox from a 1999 e36 into my 1992 320 auto e36. I'm hopeful that the M52 loom will plug into the X20 connector without any wires needing relocating, but will the gauges from my 1992 car work with the signals from my later ECU for things like...
Hi all, first post, but but of an urgent one. We've put down a deposit on a 50k miles November 2007 118d which has full history. I had a further look on the internet at pros and cons on 1 series last night and have since read up on n47 timing chain time bombs. It looks as though the car we want...
Unfortunately yesterday I got the dreaded red steering lock light on the dashboard, however, the car still starts/stops and the lock appears to be working.
I have read that the CAS software can be updated, does anybody else have experience with this?
I have also read that it may be something...
