  3. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    The symbol of the little car on the ramps! Is currently showing 4200 miles which I should cover in about 2 months. From what I read it's a licence to print money by scaring owners into taking their BMW's back to the dealership for a worthless 80 point check. Recently I've changed the oil & oil...

    I recently bought a 2008 330D Touring without a radio in it. I found several suitable ones on ebay, so today I phoned the local BMW dealer to see if one can be unlocked for my car. The dealer told me that BMW radios are coded to the car they came with and can't be fitted to other BMW's, however...

    Hey guys and gals, new to the forum, A year or two ago I bought a slightly battered, beaten, wonky and crusty 328i coupe manual. Was used as bit of a drifter by the previous owner so had some budget coilies, m50 inlet already done up front and a welded diff in the rear. Fell in love with the...
