Thus increasing to...

    I've got a 2005 120i Auto. It has a facrory/dealer fitted tow hitch. I have the yellow car on a ramp warning light and parking sensors not working.

    I'd like to share a unique story with you. Unique because I've not read or heard anywhere about this before. I tried to replace four glow plugs on an LCI 520d with an N47 engine. There are a lot of DIY guides around; some say you have to remove the manifold and some illustrate (videos) that you...

    Hi guys, I have an 07 1 Series BMW 118D SE which the engine has seized up on. My mechanic informed me that my engine is a N47 D20 OU engine, but when I type in that code online, it comes up then in brackets says N47 D20 A. I have found N47 D20 A to be much more popular when searching on eBay...

    Hi all I have followed this diagram and for the life of me the sensor is not where it says it is: RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog My number 8 sensor seems to be the oil temp sensor. I ordered a new oil pressure sensor online and the plug on it is different to that where the sensor...

    Hi all & thank you for having me here. I naively assumed it would be easy to install an OEM head unit in my e91. It appears I was wrong. My desire: 2007 3 series head unit is pretty awful + I desperately want to listen to DAB & connect my iPod for Bluetooth listening. My attempt: I bought a...

    So I have a 2010/Saloon/Manual/320d/MSport/Busines Edition. Today, it just cut out, out of nowhere, as I was approaching a roundabout. The AA man came to have a look and I thought it may be the battery as the Start/Stop function has not been working in recent weeks and I put this down to the...
