    I have my eye on a 2001 E38 740i as I am considering using my E31 as a second car instead of a daily driver which it currently is.

    Just been to look at an 05 320ci Coupe with a 2.2 in it, the only thing im concerned about that there was a lot of oil on the crossmember and suspension arms, couldn't get underneath to see how far it had spread back.

    My E46 325i is losing somewhere in the region of a litre of oil every two months or so. A couple of years ago I replaced the oil filter housing gasket, as there was oil around that side of the engine block. And that seemed to make an improvement. It was still losing oil however, and I think it...

    Evening all, Spent a bit of time today investigating my wet boot floor, I striped out all the boot panels and carpeting but couldn’t spot the source of the ingress. I turned my attention to the roof stowage bin and found a couple of puddles, which could’ve been pushing water into the boot...

    Hey guys, got my one month old 645 to a specialist yesterday to give it a once over. He pulled up the boot floor and noticed that there was a lot of condensation in the boot and things were wet. He said it would be a lot to get repaired, especially as I'm getting valve stem seals and an oil leak...
