  3. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Hi, I've just picked an '89 535iS manual in metallic black in need of some serious TLC. It was cheap but hopefully worth saving, I'll know better once I can get it to start!! It's been stood for around 12years but apparently drove out of the garage less then 6mths ago. Initially when I put a...

    I'm the proud owner of a week old 320d SE. :jump I'm trying to get my head round all the technology that my old 2008 model didn't have. Every time I get in, I need to reset the climate controls to my liking. How do I get it to remember them? I assume it always starts in "Comfort" mode?

    As above really, I have the trip computer fuel consumption display thing under the stereo, once I reset the clock and switch the ignition off it always loses it. I removed the panel expecting to find a red and yellow wire like in the back of the stereo but it's just got two plugs to it with...

    There are three key elements that govern the economy your vehicle is able to deliver; it's specification, it's condition, and you! Even if you drive with a constant eye on the fuel gauge there is a maximum level of economy that your vehicle, in its standard specification, can achieve. Without...

    Manufacturers must have investigated the feasibility of putting a DPF between the exhaust manifold and the EGR valve, in order to reduce the amount of soot re-entering the induction loop. It could offer significant protection from the numerous deliterious effects of soot on engine oil and...

    Bit of a dramatic title but its based on personal experience!? The e30 will be more than a handful in the winter, and if you even think of driving without a set of winter tyres (good ones , not cheap remanufactured african remelted flip flop sandals!) then you are going to end up in a ditch...
