    Hi My 2009 E91 318i has been making a louder than usual engine note, similar to a blowing exhaust, under acceleration. It also seems to be missing a cylinder when its experiencing this change in engine sound. But once the revs climb, the cylinder seems to kick back to life and power returns...

    The car has had recent all new injectors and nox sensor just before I bought it recently. The engine sounds sweet when revved, but the idle sounds gruff like a diesel? Any thoughts or comments? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Hi all New to the site, so hello. I have a 218d Active Tourer - Auto - 2015 (65). Euro 6 diesel. The engine sounds so unrefined, chuggy, and tractor like. To give you an idea, the last diesel i had was a Peugeot 306 TD about 15 years ago, and that sounded way quieter. When getting into...

    So I’ve bought another BMW, E46 04 this time not bad condition for a 14 year old car, drove it home no problems. Started it the following day and it sounded like [email protected] which passed after 30 secs and a blip of the throttle. All the time the engines warm or restarted within 20 mins or so it...

    Hey folks, Title says it all really! Can anyone elaborate on why the sound quality is so poor, and advise on the most cost effective way to improve it? I'm assuming its the head unit that's the weakest link but is this the case? Any pointers and recommendations much appreciated! Cheers

    Hi guys i picked up my LCI 330i last night and absolutely love it, apart from the audio. The standard fitting ford focus stereo is so much better than the BMW, which is very surprising. Ive looked on the net and it seems adding tweeters, door speakers and under seat subs is the way to go but...

    Hi all, really hope somebody can help with this I've had my E60 530d for a couple of years now, put 35000 miles on it and the engine has always been perfect, until very recently.

    My 320D E90 has started to make a gurgling noise, I guess this is air in the system that wasn't bleed properly. Is it a case of un-doing the lowest bleed screw and filling up the expansion tank until fluid comes a out and re-tighten screws

    Hey all. I recently purchased a 2004 BMW E46 Touring M-Sport with N46B20A engine. Everything is all good on the car beside a weird engine noise. When I start the car in the morning it has a really dieselish sound till it warms up. It sounds like valves are tapping or the chain is rattling or...

    Hi I have a pretty basic 520i Touring, which had the lowest business tape radio unit. I replaced it with a single DIN pioneer - basic but should sound fair to good in comparison to the original. I also replaced the front speakers with new JBL ones I had knocking about. So why does it sound...

    Hello, bought an E46 318i touring 2001 cheap with suspected exhaust manifold/header gasket blowing (or cracked header or something similar). Only I can't find a leak anywhere.
