    I have an e90 2007 328xi that has been losing power in a similar manner to those who suffer from the B+ cable connector recall issue. At first I had a complete loss of all power momentarily while driving every few months, with the frequency and duration of total power loss increasing over time...

    Hi all, I have written off and retained my BMW 330i M sport and intend to fix it for continued use. I am concerned about renewal once my current policy runs out next year. I will speak to my insurer, 1st Central, tomorrow and see if they can answer some questions. How difficult is it to obtain...

    Hi all. I bought myself a beautiful 320d touring M sport yesterday and couldn't stop smiling until..... driving home this evening I got on to dual carriageway and of course wanted to put my foot down a little. Got up to around 85-90 and there was a sudden loss of power and the engine light came...

    Please help evaluating the current situation. I will use the most precise figures I have, but would like to run it though someone with more knowledge. Car is worth about 1700 (insured for 2500, but market value seems to be more in line with 1700). Parked badly on private land where it slid (due...

    Hi This is a strange one. Generally the car drives very well. However if I drive it hard after slowing/overun it will not accelerate at all until I have come to a standstill at which point it will then pull away normally. The car has been de-egrd and de-flapped. It has a new turbo, a new map...

    So my new car, 2015 520d M-Sport has the three drive modes. I was curious as to what I'll achieve in EcoPro. My old car averaged 49.3mpg on a daily commute (last I checked - car was a 2010 e90 320ed) So I did the daily commute for four days last week in EcoPro. Was shocked to find the car...

    Bit of an odd one. My remote central locking has never worked. I try and code the key, it flashes but the car never responds. I've tried all variants that are on here; it's just not happening. So I have become accustomed to using the key. Over the last few months though, I have been opening the...

    Hi - driving my 2005 320D today and all of a sudden the car dropped to 1000 revs and no power. The car starts OK but even with my foot to the floor on the throttle the revs do not go over about 1,200. I managed to drive at about 7 miles per hour for a few hundred yards to get it off the main...
