    Afternoon All, Pleasure to meet everybody. I started my BMW life in 1999, with my first car - an E30 318i 1987 in dolphin grey with over 190k miles on and, aside from a few Ford hiccups, I've never looked back. My history is: E30 318i 1987 - 190k on it and it ran like a dream - no issues...

    From cold start in the morning, my car will idle at 1,400 – 1,600 rpm. It sounds like it’s overtuned when driving and can be jerky and splutter when changing gear. The RPM goes up and down when changing gear but once I stop the idle shoots up again. After a few minutes, if I turn the car off and...

    Last Sunday whilst driving on the M way the flat tyre sensor went off and sure enough I had a flat tyre had the tyre changed as I was doing around 80mph at the time and killed the tyre. Since then the tyre sensor keeps going off on M ways but no flat tyre. I reset the alarm on the I drive but...

    I've found other people describing this on the net but not found an answer at all.... Car went to garage today, I got back in it and first I noticed the seat was right all the way back (electric seats, and this is a convertible 320 cd). First assumption was the guy in the garage must have done...

    My aim is to buy a new car... I am looking at a few E60 520d's for around £5500-£6000, they have done 80-90k, full service history and I'm happy with the relatively low spec. There are not many advertised for this price, which is worrying me a little! Am I being unrealistic expecting a decent...

    Hi everyone, Before I do something drastic, like trade my Bimmer in for a SKoda, please can someone help me with the following!

    Hi All, So I am having troubles with my parking sensors.

  18. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I've finally gone insane. I just spent too much money on some rare wheels because I thought they might look the part on my z3. To be fair, I also hope to change the handling characteristics of it from an articulated boat on a slightly chopy sea to something a little more like a car. I realise...
