    Hey guys, I bought a BMW 123D coupe E82 with leather seats for £4100 - very nice. 93k miles on the clock. However it has a ticking which I believe is the timing chain. Being a 2008 model, do you think it's worth repairing the chain, crank and guides for a likely £1500 - £2200? Or sell and buy...

    I have an aging E39 BMW 535i mid 1998 model which has served me well over the years. It suddenly stopped in London with Trans- Failsafe error. I was able to limp home with it. RAC couldn't detect the fault. 2 Garages said it may be either gearbox or clutch but either way said it will be...

    After 14 years of virtually trouble-free motoring in my 325i Sport I was cruising along and suddenly my battery charge warning light came on solid. Fortunately I was only a few miles from home so no need to panic. Right away I suspected the alternator as the likely problem. I read a number of...

    I paid £1800 for the car in Jan, and have spent £500 on clutch, £200 on tyres and £80 on rear springs. Done a little paintwork etc but it's pretty tidy overall. It was sold with 1 year MOT from the garage, but a few weeks after buying I found two broken rear springs and corroded brake lines, so...

    Does anyone know if there's a guide or tutorial on checking for and repairing Swirl Flap damage. I have someone willing to assess and fix my damage but they normally only deal with petrol engines. Is there a guide or tutorial that can keep him right? Thanks in advance

    Engine has suffered a cracked liner. How much is it worth in parts because repairing it is a very costly job. 33k, full leather, unmarked alloys. Same as the one pictured above, colour/ wheels wise. Thanks

    I've just received delivery of a replacement grey leather interior for my E46. It was only £200, so I'm really quite happy with that. It's mainly the seats that I wanted because mine got scuffed to hell as I used it for carrying my PA speakers & amplifiers e.t.c. I got a van now, so the car gets...

    Noticed today that my our 120d drivers seat had what at first glance appeared to be a cut in the side bolster of the seat. But on close inspection it was evident it was not a cut or a tear, but a crack in the 'leather' along the line of the leather pattern. The white backing material could be...

Buggered now because i'm not paying £230 for a new one, want to swap the...
