  1. Fair Ground Shooting Range - Who / What Would You Target?

    BFuk Open Topic
    Forget tin ducks and bullseye targets, you're running a fairground shooting range, pictures of who or what would you pull the punters in with? Me? the pretentious Trivento Wine advert "blokes" as seen on Quest channel - I'd spend a lot of dollar popping shots at that lot! :)

  3. 335d e92 - loss of ABOUT 40% power throughout whole rev range

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    seems like vacuum or boost loss is about 90% cases of weak power on these 35d engines, and my recent replacement of egr pressure converter eliminatedthat gutless low rev torque and now I feel the car has a boost below 2000rpm (it didn't have before and everytime I stomped the throttle, the rev...

  5. Lack of mid range power E46 330D AUTO, 2001

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I`ve noticed a distinct lack of "grunt" when in Auto, top gear at approx 2000 rpm. When I try to accelerate nothing much happens, just a gradual increase in revs/speed. In Manual does`nt seem to be such a noticeable issue possibly because I hang onto the peak revs longer,similar in Sport mode...

  7. 2006 E64 650i 'vert - key range terrible

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    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...

  16. Flat spot in the rev range at 2000rpm

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I run a 2000 530d with no performance modifications but recently I've noticed when driving a hesitancy at 2000rpm and it feels like the car is on some sort of elastic band, as it surges a little and only slowly will the speed increase. If I give it a heavy prod with the right foot it will kick...

    Hi all - the range on the central locking of my 118d e87 decreased about 6months ago such that i can only unlock the car remotely from a couple of feet from the sensor (rearview mirror). The garage suggested trying a new rearview mirror as both keys seem fine. If i get a new one wont i have to...

I basically went around every parameter, and found everything OK, with no errors logged in my car, and all but one indicators in the green zone. The only thing strange is that under Adaption, I...
  20. Advantage Model range

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi All, I'm looking to replace my 2002 330d (bought new). My quandry is the spec. I'm looking for a 330i (possibly a 330d, but I don't really do the miles these days), that's the easy bit. I'd like 17" wheels. I don't want leather. I don't really want auto (which sort of rules out the 330d)...
