Oh, geese! I'm so embarrassed and don't know why I said my '98 is a 330i - of course it's a 328i! I've been working too hard. Maybe it's an omen - maybe my next Bimmer will be a 330....... Oh and...

Go a head make my day!

I'm pretty sure what the answer will be but I'll go ahead and ask. When I turn my lights on I hear a chirpy noise. I can turn them off the noise stops. Belt dressing helps a little, belts look to be...

I totally agree Ze! Just need to save some cash up for the fixes - this is my first Bimmer and I'm sure it will not be my last. I'm looking at a 2005 325i, manual with the 2.5, 41,000 Florida miles -...

Well, the heating doesn't get toasty as it should. With the heat on, the temp gauge tacks much lower than it normally does. I bought the car back in June of this year and this is the first time I've...

If you have skinny arms and hands do you still have to remove the fan? I'm trying to picture where it's located. It's dark and cold outside.
