First post here albeit I registered a while back.
I was hoping someone could shed some light on an issue that I’m facing.
Recently bought an X5M F85 and a few days ago I fitted a new battery. This was registered with Bimmerlink.
Since then every time I turn the ignition on, the...
Hi all, new here and looking at buying a 2014 420d msport from an approved dealer, the car has only done 11800 miles, it is very up together and drives well, apparently the old guy who owned it has been unwell hence the low mileage. My concern is that the dealer didn't really let on at first...
Have a 1 series 120d E87 manual with 157000 miles on the clock and will be doing a gearbox oil change as the guys in the garage when replacing the clutch & DMF came up with it not needing changing as it was a sealed unit and didnt need it wtf? Anyways I'm doing it as I think it needs...
I have the chance of a highish mileage (160k) E60 530d with a manual gearbox from 2003
the car is cheap enough (listed at £1500), it has a few cosmetic issues (dents and scratches not rust) but otherwise is presentable.
Is there anything specific I need to look out for before buying? I am not...
As the title says I'm looking at a very high mileage N52 and would never consider a car with this mileage, however I only hear and see good things about the N52 and for an E92 330i with all the options I could want for only £3.7k I think it's a bargain. Even if bits were to go wrong the other...
Hello all - hoping someone can help advise me on whether or not a 2012 (62 reg) X1 with 70k miles on the clock is a good idea? 2L, manual, diesel. XDRIVE18D M SPORT
I drive 80 miles a day (motorway) and looking for a nice, comfortable car which is suitable for a young family too. I don't have...
My 2001 Z3 cluster has had the dreaded EEP_1 error and no functioning dials other than the speedometer for about 4 years. This evening, in desperation, I swapped the coding plug (EEPROM) for one out of another cluster and as if by magic, the original cluster now works properly with EITHER...
My Mercedes CLS got written off a few weeks ago and I have decided to now get another BMW (I previously had a Z3 which I loved).
Initially I was looking at a 5 series (F10) but a friend of mine knows someone who is selling a 7 series 740i (F01). It's a 2010 model and only has 30,000...
Going to look at a 2005 530d auto tomorrow with 200k miles. 1 owner from new, and full history. Am i crazy or is it worth a shot? have been told gearbox is 100% and there's receipts for a few gearbox oil changes over the years. Look very clean inside and out. Its for sale for £2200. Let me know...
I am looking at spending about £13000 on a 7 series and would like to know peoples opinions on age vs miles
example 2014 with 120k miles or 2011 with 50k miles?
Is there a year where major changes took place and therefore worth paying extra to get.
Many thanks for any advice or thoughts.
What's everyone's views on high mileage 650i's say 104,000 miles? its full service history by BM and specialist on time and Castrol Edge 5w-30, no smoke either, its in excellent condition and well looked after. Do people still worry about high mileage vehicles nowadays? years ago it was...

95 840ci auto - instrument cluster / ekm repair ( FIXED! )
Had to replace instrument cluster and ekm due to an ekm pin error, but now the new ekm / instrument cluster is 160k mileage whereas the car and it's history are only 105k (this also causes an issue if I now have an accident...
My 635D is now on 115k and still going strong and I plan to keep it for another year .
I’ve owned it from 75 k and maintain it myself .
Does anyone know the life of the aux drive belt and is it worth removing the DPF and having it cleaned at this mileage ?
Ive noticed engine temp is not...
My milage is about 130k miles. My car 2006 had the following:
couple misaligned red charge hose cases
Cracked aluminium intercooler hose
2x vacuum lines changed
2x Pressure converters/solenoids - (not necessary)
EGR solenoid - helped with 10-20% power increase
2x Glow Plugs
Glow Plug relay
Is there anyway I can verify the correct millage on an E46. Wifes brother bought an e46 316ti. The car looks like it has over 200k but the cluster shows 120k. The lcm also shows the same mileage.*
My suspicion is that it was rolled back. I didn't a quick test, unplug a sensor from the dme for...
Apologies if this has been covered already. I did look, but could not find a similar case or question. But I am new here.
I bought my (E46) 318i just over two years ago.
Feb 2016 with 49,000 miles. I got a full service and brake fluid change.
May 2016 – MOT passed.
May 2017 – MOT...
For a number of reasons that I won't bore you with here, I'm quite interested in a very tidy but high mileage 318d SE E90 Saloon that is local to me. As you would expect, I have been reading up on here on the N47 engine and its numerous issues :jaw-dropping
The car is pretty much...
Bear with me for a second. This is a bit related to the "should I buy a high miler" topic but with my own take.
I have been an MX5 owner (what a car!) for a few years and am returning to the BMW fold for my late work life-early retirement car. I need some more seats and.. y'know.. a boot.
So how it your car getting on? heading for the scrapper or have you spent so much keeping it going that there is no turning back :frown or maybe everything is awesome :thumbsup
Our 08 320d E92 has 173K miles and rapidly increasing, Has had a second hand gearbox in December (noisey in...
I'm hopefully joining the BMW club this week with a used 520d. Its a 13 plate, and had done 100k mileage.
The mileage is high I know and I've read all about the timing chain issues people have with these cars.
Everything about this particular car is great and exactly what I'm after...
