Mein Auto: 328i convertible
From a Prius to a 328i convertible! Woohoo!!

Hi everyone! I'm a newbie here, and to the world of BMWs. My kids are nearly finished with college and I decided it was high time to spoil myself a bit. The Prius that I have driven for the last few years is sitting in the garage.....and I'm now the proud owner (for 10 days thus far) of a 328i convertible. Driving this car is like livin' the dream. The dealer was oh so right when he said, "A Toyota is dependable and it will get you to where you want to go. But driving will be an amazing experience for you in a BMW." I love it! Yet being a newbie, I'm clueless about so many aspects of my car. (Examples: I picked up my car in Florida and drove it to Illinois. What the heck is this dust stuff on the wheels? And why all of the sudden am I hearing a squeak when I brake?) I plan to be an active member of this site, and I'm hoping to become BMW educated!

Mein Auto: 2010 VW GTI 6spd 4dr
Haven't posted on here since 2006--so I guess I'm still a newbie. Didn't buy back then on the new (at time) E90--but may this time w/ an F30 M-sport. Gathering data, facts, figures, lease info, and best person/CA to buy from w/ best deal. (Jon, Greg, Adrian are the tops I've read) My current lease is up in 4 mo. will be going from a VW GTI to a BMW.

Owned a custom 76 BMW 2002 and MINI GP 0411 for some time, so you can count me as part of the enthusiast crowd. I've worked hard and feel this is the right time for my 1st (new) BMW. I deserve it!!

I appreciate all this forum provides and look forward to interacting w/ its members. I have to just find some way for the numbers to work--

Thanks!!

I am a new member and not sure how to gain advice on my bmw problem...help
The problem is while removing the radiator cowling to install a new water pump a sensor on the driverside of the cowling fell off. The wire attaches to the 2"x4" plastic sensor but I am not sure how to reattach it to the plastic cowling without a picture

lol, welcome to the club!!! there's a ton of us without a/c, and the best option right now is to do a search through the forums. there's plenty of help thrown out there, but some of the most important things are to check:

1. A/C Compressor
2. Freon Level (may just need a recharge)
3. Leakage

with little information regarding your specific model, i recommend combing through the forums for your x5 in order to better diagnose your vehicle. you may encounter a forum thread with someone else who's experiencing the same problem, and perhaps something to remedy it. best of luck, stay cool!

Larry, what make/model? you may find a better answer searching the threads under a keyword (such as "radiator" or "radiator sensor"). best of luck.

Mein Auto: X5
Hello everybody, my wife wanted me to have her 2009 X5 4.8 idrive in exchange of another BMW sedan (model to be decided later). So, I'm driving it now and I'm loving it, I love the wide wheels and the power the engine offers. It's in Alpine White, in my opinion very feminine, so I installed a "bull" bar to make it a little bit masculine LOL! The warranty will expire next year, so I decided to join this forum to so I could be informed on the recalls, what to fix before my warranty expires.

Mein Auto: Mazda 6 Sport (Daily)
Hi beemer owners,

I don't actually own a BMW yet . I was a motor mechanic for 18years (first job) & have done varios other jobs. But now the kids are grown up & all but one left at home, it's time to get back onto the tools, but on my terms . I'm after a project car & have always had a soft spot for BMW's. So, thinking of an E30, get myself a 318i & do a full ground up rebuild & this looks like the perfect place to get any info I might need & no doubt I'll need some info.

Cheers.

Mein Auto: Rental Car (335 on order)
New to the forum, have a 2013 335i xdrive on order- Msport/EBII/6MT/DHP/CWP/Tech/18s mixed
This will be my 3d BMW, but my first "newer" one. I still have a 1974 2002 back in the States (miss my lil go-cart) and I sold my 1993 325IS before moving over here. Both are awesome cars and can't wait to get the new one...week of July 30th.
thanks, looking forward to the knowledge and the nonsense

Mein Auto: 1998 318is
Hi All, I have my first bimmer which is a 1998 318is and it is in beautiful condition, runs like a dream, and I thought I would just check out the forum as I was doing a google search for information to post on my FB page, BMW E36 Queensland Australia. Then I saw Bimmerfest and thought I might check things out, meet other like minded people and make some friends. Thanks Annie
