  1. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    This gave me quite a shock today... The driver’s side one isn’t much better either. I fitted these less than 2 years ago, just after I had all the control arms and tie rods replaced and a 4 wheel Hunter alignment. They’ve only covered about 10,000miles since then and I had no advisories on my...
  2. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Morning guys, I went look at a 59 plate 330i with 50k miles. Everything seemed okay but I noticed a slightly rough/lumpy idle which disappeared after a minute. I didn't think much of it as I heard the N53 was very reliable and assumed it was just a cold start thing. The car drove well and I...

    Hi everyone, My e46 is pulling slightly to the left. I've swapped it to brand new summer tires, front and back since I live on the mainland and I've checked the front alignment in a shop which is perfect, but it still pulls ever so slightly to the left. We had a look at the back arm holder or...

    Hi all, I started a thread here before about a ticking noise issue i had with the car, and after long analysis it turned out to be one of the valvetronic intermediate levers retainer springs that was broken, but was since then replaced. Since then, the car is running at 95% perfection, still i...

    Hi all. Have a pretty minor issue with my 09 523i. On startup idle is a bit 'missy' but usually settles down after ten seconds. Occasionally, and literally happened 3 or 4 times in my 9 months of ownership, a smooth idle will suddenly drop down to near stalling but recover quickly. Very minor I...
