    Hi there, I hope someone can help. I have a 2012 X3 Xdrive Msport 2ltr. 45k miles. A few weeks ago out of the blue the 'driving stabilisation' light came on and the car was just grinding forward. The recovery vehicle took it to a BMW dealership. They did diagnostics, did a test drive, cleared...
  2. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hey everyone, Just this last week I noticed a high pitched whine that would get higher pitched till you get to about 30-40mph. I thought maybe one of the wheel bearing was on its way out. Then 2 days ago driving along at 70 all of sudden I could hear grating sounds as well. This has stayed, the...

    Hi All, I am new to this forum but had a few BMW's and bought a 2010 E84 X1 auto for the wife a month ago. On a 300 mile trip to Cornwall last week it developed a slight "clunk" when crawling forward in traffic and also a slight shake at higher speed. No clunks at all when over 10 mph and...

    Hi I have fuel pump issues. Travelling at speed on the motorway and the engine suddenly starved of fuel - the coil light comes on and obviously no power. First time the recovery vehicle sprayed fuel up the intake while I turned the engine over - this worked. The recovery mechanic advised it...

    Started with the dreaded triad (ABS/Brakes/4X4) so I had the actuator gear changed. It cleared all lights apart from 4X4. Told to take it to BMW to run diagnostics and they said that it needed a new servo motor. Bought that, had it fitted with my usual mechanic and all the lights came back...

    Had my X3 for about 5 months, and for the last few months I've had nothing but issues with all three light coming on the dash for ABS/4x4/and brakes. Changed the tyres to Dunlop SP01 235/50/18 as recommended OEM tyres, also the transfer box gear has been replaced. Two week after the gear was...

    Just wanted to put this here as advice for anyone with low speed cornering judder when pulling away. I had read lots about the old X3 and its problems with the transfer case. Lots recommended changing the transfer case oil at circa 80k. I had just purchased a 3L msport 2011 X3 with 110k. I had...

    Hi. I've had my X3 2.5Si 2005 for 5 months now, and it's already had the transfer box gear changed 5 weeks ago. The lights have come back on the dash, and this will be the seventh time back in the garage. I've been told it could be the tyres are wrong, as they are still the cheap ones that come...

    Ive purchased the map update from the BMW Connected drive site, and downloaded it on my PC. However, it is 31 GB in size, which is very large for any USB memory stick. How are you supposed to transfer a file of this size to your car?

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with these silly dash lights (bane of my life at the moment). Basically had the dreaded triad of lights (brake, abs and 4x4) so after searching online saw that the nylon gear can cause this issue. Bought one off eBay, booked in with my trusted mechanic and...

    Hi folks, My local indy quotes that a repair on my 2004 E83 3.0i is not possible to swap the gear inside the transfer case actuator and that a whole unit will need to be replaced; is this true? Cheapest price I've seen on ebay £799. BMW themselves quotes £2,250 for the part alone!! I know some...
