  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Wow just logged on again after a long spell away, owned an E36 316 in 2009 it ran out of mot and I sold it and bought a MK2 golf. After 5 MK2 golfs and 3 mk4s it's time for another BMW. Restoring my MK2 GTi back to original spec at the moment and I've missed a fast petrol car badly, so after...

    After 47 years of driving I have at last got round to purchasing my first BMW. Being hooked on convertibles for a number of years (XR3i Mk 4, Saab 93 2.3 SE, Volvo C70 mk2 2.4i and Saab 93 Anniversary Aero) I decided to break the bank balance and go for a BMW Series 4 convertible M Sport 420d as...

    Well, the last time I was on this forum was about 6 years ago. At that stage I swapped the E61 for a Lexus. My 50th Birthday was a a couple of days ago and my son blew me away by presenting me with a 98 E39 that he bought 9 months ago and had been gently restoring ready for the big day. What a...

    Hello all My last BMW was a black E30 318i. I think I paid £850 for it from recollection. Yesterday, after a 25 year gap, I picked up my second BMW; a metallic fern green E36 328i manual cabriolet. Only 60,000 miles on the clock and completely original, I'm planning to get it as close to mint...

    Headlines in the press indicate its over for diesel.... I clearly have been living under a rock, I was not paying attention. Cars that are Euro 5 are gonna be hit. Euro 6 cars are ok for now but their value have seen 40% drops this year. And those driving older cars get virtually paid to...

About 5 weeks ago I picked up a tidy 2007 E93 325i in decent condition, I collected it the the night before flying to Denmark for 2 weeks visiting family over there...

    So the kids have now flown and grand-children have started to arrive finally after all these years of self sacrifice I am finally free and went out and bought a 645 2004 convertible with a 67K reading which appears genuine. It was a Bournemouth cruiser for so many years and appears a genuine...
  11. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I've just picked up an E21 which I've had my eye on for years. My car has been standing for a good few years in a garage which fortunately enough was pretty dry. It's not completely escaped rust around the exposed metal and edges along sill, suspension components etc, but has done well and the...
  12. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    . . . me, and my left foot braking? Kind forum members suggested the Traction control, and several other things, and for a day or so it was fine - but then it often was. I was convinced it was to do with strong electrical fields as it seemed to happen in the same locations time and time again...

    Been away, now back. So this isnt the usual introduction, this is a 'I have returned', introduction. So rather than just say that, I figured I should say a bit more about getting 'Dino' back on the road. My mrs named the car by the way. This pic is from happier times. Both showing a car...
  14. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi everyone. I am new on this site, but I believe I have come to the right place for some good advice. I have had a 316TI Compact (2002)[/B] standing in a garage and untouched, for 3 years. It was moved on to the drive way for a further 6 months, then driven about 4-500 Km to Denmark, where it...

  17. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi All, I needed a couple of front tyres so found a dealer online (ebay) who said Brand New old stock so I bought them. They arrived today but the manufactured date is 13/08 (week 13 2008). I have immediately got on to the seller who assures me they are from a Pirelli distributor and have...

    I bought my first 2nd hand BMW 3 series M Sport last August - I've been very happy with it so far, but realised recently that I hadn't had it serviced yet. I called PMW in Chelmsford (garage recommended on this site) to ask what sort of ballpark time/money I'd be looking at and they advised I...

    Hi, I'm Darren. I've just joined and I'm about to take delivery of a Protonic Red I8. I really didn't expect to be back at BMW after not enjoying three years with 320d (2010-12) company car. However, the I8 blew me away when I drove it and my first (Jag F Type) and second (911) preferences just...
