    I have a 1 series 118i and for some reason the instrument cluster and thus headlights have stopped coming on at night automatically when it's dark. However if I turn them on manually they work.

    Hi everyone I developed a duff door lock actuator on the drivers side. I hadn't realised what a miserable experience it would be to replace it until I started - door glass out etc. Anyway, along the way I've noticed 2 problems: 1) Used to remotely open the soft top holding down unlock on the...

    I had a few issues with my diamond key a while back. It started having problems with the lock / unlock functions. The distance it unlocked the car from got shorter and shorter until it no longer worked. Then after about 1 month the key no longer started the car. It put the lights on the dash, it...

    I just changed my 10 year old E46 for a new F30. The E46 was so perfect in every way that in year 10 I still felt exhilarated when I got into the car, as much as on the first day. I knew it was a hard act to follow, and was worried that the new car, being six inches longer and shod with run...

    Hi My car used to take longer time to start intermittently (3 probably 4 seconds - Every once in like 20 times ) other times (most of the times) it'd start up instantly. Since the last few days (and I've started the car only a few times) it is constantly taking longer to start. I just had it...
