I am unable to upload a profile picture. I don't see an upload link. I think the feature is turned off. Who can turn it on for me?

I have been reading Bimmerfest for several weeks. Took the plunge last week after my wife was rear ended in her Cayenne. She now drives a 2011 328ix!

One week later, I now drive a 2013 328ix!

WOW!

Post New To You


I have been on 'FirstFives' for a while and BigCoupe too.
I haven't posted here til now.
I have a '73 2002, '75 530i, '80 528i and an '82 Euro 635CSi. All fairly stock.
I live in Long Beach, Cal. and I'm always lookin' for help.
I'm not too computer hip, but, I'll try. And, I don't deal with idiocy too well.
Along with that, I have a large sense of humor; so, I can take it.
I see that no one posts their car or city,,,,okay.

Hi All. I have been a BMW owner for the past 12 years. Started with a Z3 M coupe (2000), then a 2001 M5 (Dinan conversion), 2002 M3, and then a 2006 Z4 M coupe. Also I am on my second Mini Cooper S (2002 ans 2011). I find all the car forums very enlightening as I am sure I will find this one. I haven't posted in years even though I have been a member for the past 6 years. I'm just getting more active again.

Mein Auto: 1994 BMW 328ic
Thanks for being there

Nice to see other Beemer owners and their willingness to share the challenges and answers to puzzling questions. I started with a 1984 325 and now have an 94 325ic and an 04 325i with about the same mileage. Great drivers with the E36 much better on the curves. I do need some input on solving the water in the rear foot wells in the E36. The back seat is ruined and I have been unable to figure out how to get the drain tubes unclogged. An area dealer informed me it would cost $1,000 to fix which is not going over well with the CFO.

Mein Auto: 2000 528I
Not sure if I am doing this correctly but will find out! New BMW owner and certainly enjoying my "ride". I try to do as much as possible in the way of mechanical repair so here is my question. As I have found out the passenger door window can give you trouble coming off the track. If that is all the trouble I will receive then OK. However in going thru the process of getting to the cable and needing to disconnect my airbag and reconnecting it my airbag trouble light is still on. Is there a way around fixing this other than taking it to the dealer and dropping 100 bucks. Again I like to try and repair things when I can so any BMW guru help would be appreciated.

OH yea. this is a 2000 528 I

Thank you
Mark

New member intro

Hi, just a quick hello and a brief intro.
About 6 months ago I bought a 2006 X5 3.0 diesel. Being a few years old, I expect to find a couple of things breaking down on the X5 and having Scotch blood in me I'll have go at fixing most problems to save penny or two.
Look forward to sharing some ideas.
Bye for now,
Macka.

Buenos dios amigos!
Just got a '98 E39... with an EWS code, but I don't care because I have an absolutely beautiful example of German engineering, so let the adventure begin. I'm looking forward to learning about and working on this car and by the size of the workshop manuals I'm gonna be busy for a while.
Vaya con dios,
Peter

I attached a pic of "my other car" which has been a 42 year odyssey.

Hi Geoff,
Thanks for the note. Looks like you appreciate the technology from Deutschland too.
This is the second BMW I have owned. The first one was a '79 733i with a cracked cylinder head.
I picked it up way back in the mid eighties from a soldier who brought it back from Germany. It was a "grey market" car and had a ton of power compared to the smog busters. It always ran perfectly after I rebuilt the engine and I hated to let it go but it was a show of good faith to the wife when we purchased some property. Selling the car helped me pay for the driveway, guh. Now she is my ex, the property has been sold and I definitely miss the car and the garage more then her.
Regards,
Peter
