    I've got a 2003 E46 convertible with factory Harmon Kardon setup, that I was perfectly happy with. Last year I had the old (aftermarket) head unit swapped out and a new unit fitted that would do bluetooth etc. I havent blasted the music out at any louder volumes (im 40+, so getting on a bit)...
  2. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi all, first of all, its me Biggles, I've had to open a new registration because I was shut out of my old name. Anyway the problem is a very rattly knocky sort of noise. The sound is similar to loose exhaust but I have checked all that and I think its the anti roll bar bushes but despite...

    Hi. I have a 2002 330ci sport. I had to take avoiding action last week due to some asshole driver. I hit the curb on the passenger side. Apart from the rim needing a refurb Now the steering wheel action in both directions seems to be looser than what it was and not as tight and positive. After...

    Hi all, Today I have replaced idler and tensioner pulleys. Given it was my first DIY it went reasonably smooth. Job completed in about 2 hours. When I started the car from cold it seemed to be misfiring and rpm was at about 900 as opposed to the usual 1100 when cold. After 20 seconds engine...

    Hi all - first post so apologies if incorrectly posted. And apologies for the long story. Basically after suffering a series of heart attacks at Easter I decided I'd get myself the nice BMW I'd always promised myself before the grim reaper comes knocking. I managed to find (on the face of it) a...

    I've had my 8 series since 2012 and fixed some initial problems with the car when I got it. I then attended to some other problems as and when. So far, from memory, the following has been done to the car, it had a large service with new brakes etc just before I got it: -Fixed inoperative ABS...

    Morning all! Back to the BMW fold with my sister's car, an E46 320td in Titanium Silver. Bought it on the 27th for a more than reasonable price considering the mileage (145k) so not surprisingly the turbo needs replacing along with usual Breather suspects, the rest of the car is spot on...

    Hi Guys, I've been a member on here for ages as a casual reader since owning an e86 Z4 way back. That's long gone unfortunately but I've recently embarked on a project car build using mainly e46 donor parts except the engine and gearbox which is an e36 M52B28 and so hopefully I'll now be able to...

    Hi Guys, Had an ongoing problem with my E36 328i for far too long now and I was hoping for some help. Originally the car would occasionally cut out, was totally flat to the rev limit and would be hard to start but a new OEM cam sensor has cured that. But still the car completely lacks power...
  16. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I've spent the last week torturing myself as to whether to MOT my E36 or not. I've decided to do it, partly because it'd be worth more for PX with an MOT...but mostly because I love the car, as impractical as it might be living on the Yorkshire Dales! Given the condition of my car (pretty good...

    From the clicking I think two of my front sensors need replacing. There seems to be at least two sorts on eBay which say they're for the E38. I had a look at the rear ones when I had the rear bumper off. Are the front ones the same? Does anyone know which sort I need? Many thanks in advance.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum so sorry if this question is answered somewhere. I have a 2005 535d e60. When I brake hard I get a grinding sort of noise, it's only when I brake hard there fore I'm assuming it's not a bearing. I have changed all the discs, pads, sensors etc. I have vented...
