  2. 335i selection

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi all after 3 years and plenty of effortless driving it's time to move on from the 335d. My reduced mileage has forced me to part with this workhorse. One of the best cars I've ever owned! I'm now in the marker for a 335i convertible and I've finally found 2 cars I like. The first is a 2007...
  3. INPA selection for F45?

    Diagnostic Hardware and Software Discussion forum
    Hi guys, Forgive me if this is a dumb question but I've just bought one of these all-in-one software diagnosis packages, it claimed to be suitable for the F series but I see no mention of the F45 in the INPA menus (indeed no mention of the 2 series in any form I can see). It's version 7.09...

    General BMW Discussions
    E60 - BMW 530i Started today. Selected sports mode which worked correctly but when selecting a higher gear for faster acceleration, nothing happened and it stayed in DS mode. I pulled the gearstick down and went up the gears as normal from 3 to 5 sequentially with no issue. It just won't go...

  7. Difficult gear selection on '01 330d 5 speed manual touring

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, New to the forum, managed to pick up a reasonably priced 2001 330d se touring. Obviously a few minor niggles with a 117k mile 13yr old vehicle but what's spoiling an otherwise nice car is the gear shift. It's the 184bhp model with a 5 speed manual box, when shifting from second it's hit &...

    My first post. I have a 7 year old 630 convertible - auto. It has done circa 45k miles. I have what I am pretty certain is a gear selection issue at low speed. Specifically - 3rd gear, 1000 revs, on the flat, come to an uphill piece of road (e.g. turning into a junction where the road goes...
  9. E46 330i M Sport Gear Selection Probs

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I have read somewhere that the problems I have selecting 3rd - it wont go in when I come down the box unless I wiggle the gear lever in neutral until it frees itself, although it is fine on the way up the box - is some sort of cheap nylon bush but that replacing it is a gearbox out job. Can...

  11. 2013 BMW 316 ES Petrol - best suspension selection for comfy ride for urban driving

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi I'm about to buy a new BMW, I'm going for the cheapest option because I don't drive that match - to be honest I want a self-drive google car. And hence petrol not diesel as it would take me over 10 years to start making savings from the extra cost of a diesel model. I drive in London and...

    Can anyone help or have you had a similar problem? I have an intermittent fault on my steptronic box, when I start the car and select drive, it will sometimes come up with D and then go to D5/DS, which I`ve been told means that it will be in sport and rev higher, it also has a habbit of not...

  16. E39 520 Auto Selection Problem

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    My 2001 E39 has just developed a problem in selecting D. Previously I could pull the selector back in a straight line but now it won't budge past N and I have to move it in a slight dog leg to get it into Drive. The car drives fine once I have overcome this and I can select P,R & N in a straight...

  18. E39 tyre selection - advice please and warning for the unwary

    General BMW Discussions
    I am very new to BMW ownership and am having something of a baptism of fire with my 1997 528i SE Touring. It had the most horrendous graunching/rubbing sound from underneath towards the front which matched road speed. Having checked brake discs, wheel bearings, propshaft couplings and the diff I...
  19. 2001 e46 320d: sticking gear selector?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I am assuming this is an issue with the gear selector rods as there are no problems when in gear.The resistance felt when selecting 5th doesn't come back when coming out of 5th, ie the gear stick doesn't get push back in line with 3rd and 4th. Its also very stiff to push it into reverse. Could...
  20. 2005 E60 auto transmission gear selection at part throttle

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Good afternoon I'm just getting used to my purchase of a 535d, it's very fun however I've noticed that at certain amounts of throttle, e.g. 70mph the car appears to be changing revs or constantly changing gear. Is this normal? At 80mph this doesn't happen which leads me to believe that 70mph is...
