  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, very new to this website so hoping you guys could shed some light on my problem! Vehicle - BMW 320d M Sport 67 plate (F30) A little over a week ago I had my alloys changed from the boring 18“ m sport alloys to the 19” inch diamond cut m sport alloys. Now, both alloys were stock for the...

    Hi My car has developed a new issue and I'm struggling to figure out what it is. This sound only happened after I had my car washed yesterday, I didn't have the engine cleaned nor the bonnet open at the time so it may just be a coincidence. The sound only happens when pressing the accelerator...

    Hello, So I drove home from work last night and parked my car, a few hours later i hear this weird "popping" sound and a few blips/beeps from the alarm which progressively got worse but never constant. It sounded like R2D2 was living under my bonnet and had learned to pop. It almost sounded like...

    Hi, The tailgate glass on my 320d touring keeps popping open when I start the ignition. Doesn't do it if I lock the doors before starting. I've replaced the tailgate switch but it's still doing it. Do I need to trace the wiring further into the car and find where it's shorting? Cheers for any...

    Hello! Long story short. My e36 m3 with s50b32 engine has been standing still for the last 2 years because the SMG stopped working.

    Hi all, So my troubles started when I fitted a new exhaust manifold and 6 recon'd injectors. I completed the job and found that there was an exhaust leak and it made a loud metallic screeching noise, I wrongly assumed the turbo needed replacing so I redid the job and fitted a new turbo...

    I suspect something is wrong with the EGR cooler? Power is down and there is a loud whooshing sound accompanied by a puff of smoke from the cooler and a rasping sound? Do these go as they seem a simple piece of kit? Turbo is running free but boost is poor.

    With less than 50k on the clock this is really concerning, started a month ago, but 1st gear will pop out 2-3 times during a normal 15 minute city drive... My BMW specialist local garage is thinking synchro has gone but he can't source the part to replace it. My only options seem to be 2nd...

    This morning all of a sudden I could hear a loud "popping" noise. It seems to be coming from directly below the centre console, almost right underneath the gear stick. It is not a noise that is regular, nor does it seem to increase with acceleration. Any ideas what it might be?

    Hi, I own a 2005 645CI conv, It's a great car except for a problem that my local Indy can't seem to solve. A few months ago water was getting into the boot as the part where water should pass through was blocked. The blockage was cleared but it then needed a new battery, amp and ccc drive...

    Car audio when listening to radio, cd and Dension 500 (ipod) are all fine but when making a call via bluetooth as soon as it connects I get static, crackling etc from speakers that starts to gradually build up as time progresses. Same symptoms with the digital tv tuner when it is selected...

    I've had trouble with a lazy starter which was dragging the battery down. Before I changed the starter the back window started unlatching whenever I started the engine. I assumed this was because the battery was under strain and it was unlatching due to power loss, but having changed the...

    The oil separater has just been replaced, and the car is more responsive, but after some moderate driving with the car parked I heard a very loud "popping" sound from the engine, its not a clicking or whirring, or sucking, but a very definite rapid pop pop pop......related to engine speed, as if...
