    Hi I have a facelift 330d E46 Could someone post a picture of what their fuel reading is on number 6 of the hidden menu with a full tank as mine reads 57L when tank is brimmed. I know the tank holds 65L when full to the top of filler neck as that’s what I have managed to put in when I nearly ran...

    Suddenly from last years service the car started using oil. There were no obvious exhaust smoke or oil leaks It went from 9K to 1K. Now there are signs, from cold there is blue smoke. Sometime when I accelerate there is a cloud of smoke, but not all the time. The EGR valve...

    I have a 2.0D in my 2015 X1 which is fine but drove a 2.5X1 (I think same engine but significantly more powerful) and was blown away. Intrigued: what is the difference? if they are both twin turbo 2 litre engines is it simply engine mapping or has the more powerful one got bigger turbos etc...
  10. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi All, I've been reading the forum a while now and I've seen a buyers guide for the 330D but not for the 2 litres. Unfortunately due to insurance costs I will not be able to go for a 3 litre but I'm looking at purchasing a 13 or 14 plate 2 litre M-Sport in January. I am leaning towards the 320D...

    Hey guys been a while since i posted on here. Having enjoyed my 325D Touring for a couple of years i have taken the sad decision to sell my pride and joy and buy a van through my business. Do you know the best place to sell a decent car with fairly low mileage car privately these days. I...
  12. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi, First post, following lots of Googling and thread-searching. In my boat I have an 2.0 M10 engine with Pierburg 2BE carb. Fuel is dripping from the jet onto the butterfly and, given the reputation of the carb, I'd like to use this as an excuse to replace it. A Weber 32/34 carb has been...
  13. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi, I'm looking to purchase a BMW 1 Series second hand. I was just curious as to what the differences were between 2.0 litre 116i, 118i and 120i models? I noticed the 116/118 seem to have around 122 bph, whereas the 120 has 177 bhp. Are all of these models still actually 2.0 litre engines...

    Hi, all. I'm in the market for a new (well, used) car and am thinking of buying an F02 (LWB) 3 litre diesel. It was a toss up between the BMW and a Mercedes S class 3 litre diesel, but a local BMW specialist told me the S class's 'aromatic' suspension is problematic and cost a fortune to repair...
  15. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, I'm tempted by the new 3 series (looking at nearly new) but I'm concerned around the timing chain issues on the n47 engine. I've noticed that some 3ltr diesel F30 have come into my budget. Is this engine prone to any known issues and us it a more reliable unit? Thanks

    Hi I would like to know if anyone has had a problem with their Hydraulic pump which controls the ABS and tracking. My car is a Z4 sports convertible 2008 and very well maintained. It has a full service history with BMW and had an extended 5 year warranty. I was quoted 2900 euros from a BMW...

    My 320d is officially dead. I thought it was a great car until it had a seizure and conked. I'm now looking for a replacement, but I think I'm going to swerve the 320d. Every other thread on here contains the words '320d' and 'problems'. I know this isn't typical BMW as I've owned several in the...
