Earlier this week I picked up a 2005 745Li with 81,000 miles on it. I want to change the transmission fluid (yes, I know it's "sealed for life"). I found where to get the parts and the fluid, but the...

I'm not worried about traction control or ABS. I want to get them working, but they aren't critical. My Chrysler 300 doesn't have ABS (believe it or not) or traction control. I know how to avoid tire...

I'll skip on the traffic pro, LOL. JVC is making a pretty cool single DIN Nav/radio, the KD-NX5000. However, I just like the look of the 2 DIN units. The one thing I started wondering about, though,...

Double DIN GPS in a Z3?

I've been looking at the center console of my 97 Z3 trying to determine if I could fit a double DIN GPS/receiver in there. It looks to me like I could pretty easily move the heated seat switches and...

I love Rain-X. I agree that there can be some slight smearing under certain conditions, but all you need to do is take a cloth and buff the window briefly and the smearing goes away. It also helps to...

Have you tried a glass shop? When they replace windshields, they sometimes have to replace the rubber seal. If they don't have it, try the dealer.

I appreciate the help. I think everything is as it should be, I'm just used to seeing my other cars with either no noticeable camber, or maybe some very slight positive camber. It's good to know that...

Thanks for the help, Ron. I don't mind the airbag light so much, and I'm just going to leave that fuse in in hopes the airbag will actually work if needed. The traction control/ABS lights were really...

That's weird because in the wiring diagram I have, it also shows F27 going to the airbag light, however my airbag light is still on! It apparently came on when the dealer (not BMW) removed the seat....

Z3: Fuse 27, Traction Control, and ABS

I bought my Z3 a week ago even though it had the all too familiar problem with the traction control light and ABS light being on. I'm assuming the problem is with a wheel speed sensor, but I haven't...

Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying a '97 Z3 from a used car dealer. It's in decent shape for an 11 year old car, but the airbag light and the two brake indicator lights in the dash are on. It has a...
