    Hi! Can anyone tell me why my auto level warning comes on when i have weight on the back end of the car? It is fine if there is no weight at back end. Seems to build up pressure no problems but then lets it all out soon as its full! Wondering if there's a faulty valve that keeps the air in? Any...

    Hi! Can anyone tell me why my auto level warning comes on when i have weight on the back of the car? Sits fine with no weight at back end. The compressor builds up the pressure and i can see the car lifting but soon as it cuts out it releases all the air back out again. Any ideas please?

    I ordered a Westfalia towbar and dedicated loom for my E61 last week.

I was also told that it was plug and play, i.e. that it just plugged...

    I have a few queries regarding the ZF autobox fitted to my 2004 E61, mainly in regard to towing. First of all, how strong is this box and will it take the abuse of lugging an extra 1400KG behind the car. Currently I have no issues with the car but I'm a bit worried that asking more of it at...

    Barring the difficulties of exhaust clearance etc, I'd like to ascertain if it's legal to tow with an M3. Before anyone goes off about M cars etc, I'm only looking to occasionally tow 2-300kg, but it still needs to be legal! Could an owner be so kind as to have a look at their VIN plate for me...

    My 2008 530d, 76k miles, recently suffered a catastrophic autobox failure costing £3,200 to repair - see my previous threads for the sorry saga!

    Hey guys, Know next to nothing about BMW's, but potentially about to buy one (tonight!). Its an E39 530d auto. I've driven an E39 530d manual before, and used it for towing, and just loved it! Now I need one of my own! However, from looking around & reading, manuals are quite rare, so I'm...
