I had mine fail on my 530i around March. It was just idling in the driveway when I saw lots of smoke, then it stalled. When I got the new parts on, I'd only start it at night because the smoke was...

The red "brake" light does not automatically reset after it comes on. You can reset it by cycling the key to ignition on, then off, 3 or 5 times within a few seconds. If it stays on, you still have...

I broke a rear spring, so it's time to replace both, but the parcel shelf seems a P.I.A. To get out. Bentley says to remove the C-pillar trim first, but it feels like it was nailed in place. Is...

I take it there's no love lost on the Style 18's, since they never appear in any pictures here. I like the look more than the MPars, being much simpler. I guess it's all personal taste. I've spent...

Next time you pass a dead skunk (even if it's not "in the middle of the road") you may have second thoughts about that - BMW hasn't programmed the intake to recognize skunk perfume. :rofl: "You...

The whole problem boils down to pricing. There's no reason you can't get "REPs" that have the same qualities as the "OEMs", point for point. What needs to happen is a demand for it. As long as...
