  1. BMW Cars for Sale
    Hi everyone, I will keep this brief, the car was purchased earlier this year for my elderly father to use for popping to the shops etc, we jokingly said it would be the last car he ever buys, sadly this has actually proven to be true as a few weeks ago he was taken into residential care as his...

    Hi, General question that hopefully someone can advise on. Having just chucked on new Zimmerman discs n textar pads (made in GB now???) on the front, plus a new wear sensor as the old one was a bit crumbly and didnt allow a brake service reset. Anyhow when I rest it, it only gave me 10,000...
  3. BMW Cars for Sale
    Hi All I bought the car a couple of years ago on the Z4-Forum and I had a lot of joy with it but decided I need something with a bit more space. So I've bought an e36 and I'll be after something a bit cheaper to replace the Z4. From buying it in August 2017, the car has since covered just over...

    My engine is really noisy (clunks and rattles) and the whole car judders while accelerating through and maintaining low RPM (almost feels like it is missfiring through 1st and 2nd), it feels really sluggish until turbo kicks in and to top it off I have occational burts of THICK white smoke out...

    I'm looking at buying a 535D touring to replace my poor old banger of a mondeo, and I'm finding that there's a bit of a pivot at my budget (£6000 + any tradein tops), which is basically that going LCI is adding on roughly 50000 miles. My budget just isn't going to stretch to a sub-100000 LSI no...

    Hi, I have the common quacking problem with the Egr pressure convertor so I'll need to take the manifold off to get to it. Since I'm already removing the manifold should I do the swirl flap blanking at the same time? The car has done 85k miles with regular(5k) engine oil changes since i had...

    Hey all, Going to be loitering (already have been going by my pre-existing account on here!) and checking out a few bits for my new daily which is a 2003 325ci. Not the best condition but it all works which is what counts on this car although I'll end up tidying up a number of bits :) The...

    Will be doing an inlet manifold clean, as well as some other bits of maintenance whilst it is off. My understanding is that the new swirl flaps aren't prone to failure, however at my mileage it must be likely they are worn. I hear they help with low down rpm torque. If i were to blank them...

    Gorgeous color too. From the article: It's going to hurt your pocket at $30,000 firm, but what are the chances you are going to find another regular wheelbase E38 with a Sports Package and just eight thousand miles? 28 pictures and video in the gallery .

    Hi everyone and sorry if the problem was mentioned somewhere else before. I own my bmw e90 for about 6 months now. Done 4000 miles. My both rear tyres are bold on the inside. Wire is coming out. The outside is fine That's why I never thought to check the tyres properly. I went to the...

    I reset the CBS indicator on my E92 after the last service which was 5K miles ago. However, it is now showing 30K miles to the next service which I am sure is not correct. If I reset it now will it re set itself to the correct service interval or will I have to compensate by e.g. taking off 5K...
