    Car - 2013 F31 330d M Sport (s/s) (165k on the clock) These issues may be completely unrelated but I was on a journey yesterday (300 mile round trip) and had a few issues... On the way out (in the first 10-20 miles) I had the cruise control on and several times it failed, giving me a cruise...

    Since I’ve had my car (may this year) I’ve just kept the automatic climate control switched on. I do that with all my cars as I like not needing to faff with the heating controls, fan speed and direction.

    Yesterday I've noticed that the battery light started flashing, but only when redlining engine RPMs - it looks almost like somebody switched traction control warning light with battery warning :) I have this car a couple of weeks now, and there where no problems/warning lights for all other road...

    Hi all, My airbag light randomly comes on/ goes off, usually when I have someone in the passenger seat! If the passenger gets out and the light is off, then it stays off when i'm on my own and vice versa, Could this be a loose connection under the seat or could it be the seat belt pre...

    Hi all, I hope that someone can help me with this little problem, the auto climate control seems to come on when it wants and then is only on for a bit then goes off, sometimes when you start the engine in the morning it doesnt do anything, not even lights up? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi all Picked up a 2001 E46 330D sport saloon manual with 95k a few weeks ago. Very happy with the car and so far have only come across one potential problem. The car pulls very well and in 1st/2nd gear there are no noticeable issues, in 3rd/4th/5th gear if I accelerate hard from low revs the...

    Hi all, Typical newbie here asking what is more than likely a stupid question but can someone tell me how the hell do you turn traction control on/off? With the snow the wheels just spin and power dieing out trying to get of the mark when you most need the power. Its a 2003 model btw. Thanks...
