  2. E39 528i Terrible headlights. Is there a way to let me see more of the road at night?

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi to all, I have had my beloved 528i for almost ten years now and it is 21 years old but still like new. That is part of the problem though! I have never been at all happy with the light from the dipped beam setting on the headlights. I can hardly see enough road to go 30mph at night on...
  3. 2006 E64 650i 'vert - key range terrible

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Evening folks. I've done a lot of searching and I suspect I know the right answer to this, but everything I've read has been about the E60 rather than the E64 so I figure it's worth checking.. My previous car was a 2004 645ci and the (diamond) key worked from miles away to unlock or lock the...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hello All. My first post (from long time lurker) and a birthday one so please be nice! My B10 V8 has started pinking badly. The idle is rythmically rough. In neutral the pinking is heard from maybe 2000rpm and gets worse as the revs rise, like a bag o' bolts. In drive it starts from lower in...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Today my Bmw decided to lock me out completley... I spent 2 hours breaking into the ting with no luck. I used a blowing pillow (sorry for my bad english) and used a long thin metal arm for reaching the centrallock with no prevail.... Ended up doing this...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi everyone, hope someone can help me. I have just inherited a 2002 325i and every morning there is a slight miss fire that clears up after about a minute. If the car is left to stand for a few days the miss fire is so bad it causes the engine management light to come on and the engine stops. If...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    So last September I did something rather silly and let my heart rule my head and bought a 1998 m3 evo on a whim. Shes beautiful but not without her problems. I knew the vanos was noisy but it got worse and worse and I put her away for winter. Come summer I pulled her out and after charging...

    Auto Electrical Forum
    I wanted the angel eyes on my 5 series to come on when I unlocked the car, but didn't fancy the DIY method posted somewhere on the forums. So I found the eLight module and emailed them to ask if it could do this...

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    Good day to you all. Today, as a 31st birthday gift, I received a Sony CD head-unit and very-nice it is too. I would like to say I got it all plumbed in without a fuss, and did just that earlier, but I was wrong. Like with everything I try, there's always something that throws a spanner in...

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    Good Evening ladies and Gents, Having just bought a BMW 320d with the stock audio option, i was expecting a fairly decent sound system.

  13. 2000 e38 728 sport, terrible cost of lowering

    BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    Every BM I've had, I have lowered. I just like them that way. So after a year of enjoyment with my car I decided it was time. I bought my lowering springs for 140.00 (apex), then called my local indie for a price. 500.00!!!!! was the quote. It turns out that the rear interior has to come out...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Our 1998 318is Coupe is getting the same fuel consumption as my old Saph Cossie running at 329bhp! We are getting around 150-170 miles to a full tank. This is a lot of A road driving and taking it easy. The rear brake calliper was seized but that has been replaced. Full service carried out just...
