    Finally parting company with my beloved 1997, 740i, e38, after discovering fuel tank rotted and various bits of body rust I parked up the car last year and have not looked at it since. So no MOT and unsure if starting. It was parked up working with various epoxy patches on the petrol tank - the...

    I recently purchased a non running 2004 118i. Supposedly the previous owner tried to jump start the vehicle after it went flat but put the terminals on the jump leads the wrong way.

    I've got this issue that when I tried to put down the drivers window it went down at an angle, when I took the door card off the glass has come out of the metal running that then slides into the regulator. I'm guessing this running is clamped or bonded to the glass. I've tried to squeeze it back...

    Hello, I am Andrew the proud owner of a 1995 e36 318is with automatic transmission. No air conditioning, no computer, no leather, no toys. For the life of me I can't figure out what the 's' gives me but it is on the log book, but not on any badging. The car has done over its life less than 60K...

    My 318i is a good starter and runner, only thing is I find my foot is on the floor most of the time in normal driving....and though it seems to have not too bad power on the level, if I have to pull up an incline say to overtake a slow lorry from 40mph it really seems to struggle to get over...

    I needed to move the 840 this afternoon after sticking the front suspension back together. Various bits and bobs are disconnected under the bonnet but it started first turn of the key. It idled really nicely for about 15 minutes and then just cut out. It will re-start, only runs like it's on...

    Hello people. Got my first question to ask the experts! I have a 1994 E34 520i and the poor thing is not running well at all. The fuel consumption has been steadily getting worse for a while now - I'm currently averaging around 15mpg! Plus the engines idles poorly and spikes the revs...

    Hi all Just recently spent a few days sorting my drivers side electric window. The question i have, is that the guides, for the glass on both doors, keep working there way to the bottom. Has anyone glued these in position, and what did you use. By guides, i mean the black length of suede...
