    Hi all, first time poster, long time lurker here. Here's a rough timeline of what went on over the last few days: I returned to my car after it has sat in the airport carpark for a week after previously running well.

    Hi everyone, I bought a 2001 E39 automatic a couple of months ago and I am a little concerned about the revving sound my car makes when trying to take slight inclines. On the flat it's perfect, but when it tries to go even slightly uphill the gearbox shifts down a gear and the revs go up to 2500...

    Hi All, My e90 320d has thrown up the DTC light. I'm quite familiar with the trio of DTC, ABS and handbrake light, but can't find anything similar on the forum. Also, the DTC button is not working, which is as expected if the system has shut down. The ABS and traction control both seem to be...

    Hey chaps, hopefully someone has experienced this and can point out a fix. I was running late for golf yesterday morning, so I was doing 90mph on the motorway, road was dry, and I was cruising in a straight line, when all of a sudden the ASC light started flashing and I could feel the ASC...

    My brother has an 2005 E90 320d and it has a problem with the power being cut by the Traction Control unit When driving along at 60mph or so the TC light come on and starts cutting the power. It keeps getting worse until you have to drive full throttle and the car is only doing 30mph. After 15...
