It’s quite subtle...

    Hi guys, thanks in advance for your hep. I've recently gone from a 320i coupe manual to a 420d automatic. I'm posting here as there's hardly any users on the 4 series sub-forum, and the engine/setup is the same as the 3 series, so the question will apply to any 320d automatic drivers. When I...

    I know there's plenty of threads on shocks, but just wanted a bit of advice more specific to my setup. I recently picked up my E90 M-sport and was finding the ride a little too hard to bear on our crappy roads, lowered springs and run flat potenzas (225/35/19 on front). Went to get a puncture...

    About 10 months ago I bought my BMW E65 735i with 50.000 miles on it. It was in perfect condition and it ran super smooth. A few months later the car started suffering from misfires in the morning about once a week (only once or twice during a cold start). After start-up it immediately ran fine...
