    Hi everyone, I have 2007 118d Auto 150k miles that has recently started to give off blue smoke on cold start. The ignition was a little hesitant when cold and the car would shake a little when started ( the rpm moves about a little). All of these symptoms go away when the car has warmed up...

    Evening ladies and gents. For a while my engine has been making a rattling type noise (only under strain) I'm guessing it's the vanos. I've lived with it for the time being as it's not obvious when out on the open road. I now have another noise coming from the area of the vanos. I've had a...

    Picked up one of these the other week. My handbrake was way out of adjustment, so I took to AllTech in tunbridge wells who are BMW specialists. They adjusted and now it barely needs pulling. However I now get a squeal pulling away, plus they bind slightly and it won't free wheel on its own...

    good evening everyone. I've joined this evening and wanted to ask a few questions. If I may. I recently bought a 650i. Selling my 330i in the process.
