    I bought brand new in July 2018 a BMW 640i M sport convertible, after having previously owned an approved used 2012 BMW 640i M Sport convertible which was solid and reliable. As such I know how good they can be and what options I wanted on my new car. So I treated myself turning 40. An overview...

    I fitted a Xtrons WinCE double din head unit to my 330Ci, complete with the extension harness to replace the OE satnav etc. My problem is the total lack of bass. With the head units EQ set to max bass, its barely audible. I tried playing an "Eminem" CD, that rattles the windows in my...

    Hi guys, Ive got a 2008 520d msport 177bhp (150k mile) m47 engine and i've been having problems with the car being underpowered at low revs. The car accelerates sluggishly up until 2k rpm but it seems the turbo doesnt fully kick in until 2.5k rpm If you drive the car hard it seems drives well...

    Sorry for posting this in a non G20 thread but I can’t see one yet and I think I’d rather ask experienced buyers/drivers anyway: I’m looking at a new G20 Sport (company car choice doesn’t reach to M Sport spec) but I’m not hugely inspired by the colour choice. Sapphire Black with Oyster leather...

    Greetings! Ever since I have owned my 320d (coupe facelift 150hp) it has had a very annoying intermitent fault of loosing boost/power. It's remedied very easily by switching the car off for a few seconds then re starting, which cures it for a while. There is no eml or any other warning lights...

    Hi all, I have a 520 d F10 2011 plate no mods. Fuel economy is really poor and I only seem to get 25 mpg for local travel around between home and town and work (4 miles away). If I use some slightly urban roads it can increase to 30 mpg but this is still so bad in my opinion. Can someone...

    Had 5 series for years, got latest in October last year, a 520d with 150k miles on the clock. Went as expected, 55 - 58 mpg on motorway and 36mpg on commute. Then noticed in December through to March fuel consumption dropped to 26 on commute and 44 on motorway and quite powerless. Now that it's...

    Hi all, new to the forums so hello everyone ?. I’ve literally just purchased my 2010 F07 530d GT and I’m abit surprised at the OBC Fuel Consumption readout, it says I’m averaging in the low 20’s which is not even close to what BMW say it’s capable of, I know it won’t be hitting BMW’S figures but...

    Hi All, I need some help please. I have a 2007 E61 530D LCI Auto. My wife called me today to say the car had broken down and wouldn't rev up. I went out to it, and sure enough it wasn't right. if you tried to rev it up, it would rev up in "stages" if that makes sense, with a lot of black...

    Hi everyone! My E90 330d (2006.) has performance problems when cold. The thing is it has a low power first 20-30km of driving (half an hour) and then power kicks in and it pulls like a train. First it runs more like 320d than 330d, after 30mins in 4th gear it pulls better than in 3rd when...

    Hi to all, I have had my beloved 528i for almost ten years now and it is 21 years old but still like new. That is part of the problem though! I have never been at all happy with the light from the dipped beam setting on the headlights. I can hardly see enough road to go 30mph at night on...

    Hi everyone. Just like the title says, my car has been running poorly. In fact, it has done so for more than a year now. Never been able to properly track down this issue. My car feels like it's a gasoline one with an atmospheric engine. Turbo's response is late, sometimes there are boost...

    X3 F25 20d xdrive - Poor MPG after EGR valve replaced After getting Drivetrain Error warnings, I booked my car into my local main dealer and they diagnosed the issue as being a faulty EGR valve. This was replaced and they also did a software update on the car. Just over a month has now passed...

    The reception is crap on my car radio. It's a bmw standard fit. I get radio 1 ok but the rest are fuzzy and struggle to get reception. What can I do? I need to boost the signal or get a different antenna source. What can I do? Anyone had this issue and fixed It?

    Evening folks. I've done a lot of searching and I suspect I know the right answer to this, but everything I've read has been about the E60 rather than the E64 so I figure it's worth checking.. My previous car was a 2004 645ci and the (diamond) key worked from miles away to unlock or lock the...

    The general radio reception on my car is pretty poor. On some days it seems to be better than others. Today i was on the m25 and it wouldn't even pick up radio 1 properly. Are there any common problems with these that i can check? Its a model equipped with idrive if that makes a difference...
