Mein Auto: 645 Ci
New Member

Recently purchased a black 2005 645Ci convertible with 40,000 Km or 25,000 miles on it, and extra set of winter grips. What a beauty! It is in storage until spring. Already found out the battery problems. What are this model's deficiencies long term owners have experienced?

I'm David and new forum user here. I've got an '05 745i that I recently purchased so I'm here to learn and help as I go. I'm a heavy forum user on the Corvette Forum as I'm an owner of two of them. As I learn about this BMW, then hopefully I'll be able to help here as well. For now, its learn, learn and learn some more.

Mein Auto: Acura RSX-S
Greetings

Hello All,

I am a new member from New Jersey. I am looking to purchase my first BMW, and have eyes on a 2003 E39 M5 (eBay auction, but the dealer is local to me). I currently drive a 2002 Acura RSX-S. I will visit the "Ask a Dealer" forum for some help on service hsitory, but any other advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Cool blAck745Li

Hello, happy to be here. Just got a black 745Li with peanut butter guts130 miles already on it. Kind of nervous, hope it doesn't give me too many problems. But I'm loving my new ride. It will be used daily, so I guess that's a good thing from what I been reading.

Smile Sheepskin seat cover

I need to find a company that makes sheepskin seat covers for 2004 330 convertable. These do not take a conventional cover but need a custom design specifically for the convertable. Please feel free to email me @

coatcandy1@optonline.net
thanks,

You might do just as well locating a local upholstery shop ( fabricator) using real sheepskins.

Mein Auto: 540 Touring E39
Hi finally got around to posting although been a member for about 6 months. Have the site very useful as my E39 540i Touring (94,000 miles since Nov 1999) has been giving me huge grief until I finally decided to take it off the road. Problem was stalling once the revs dropped down to idling speed. Local BMW dealer had it in three times and said they either couldn't find a problem or said they had fixed it (cam sensor). They hadn't and after spending 750+ on the visits I decided to give up and leave the car until I some time to try and fix it myself. Having read all the posts about this problem I tried cleaning the MAFF but to no avail; then decided to replace air filter and MAFF. Thanks to site I bought a Range Rover replacement at 3x cheaper than BMW part. Success, no more stalling after trip of 500 miles plus and about to embark on lambda replacement to try to get it running sweet. Thank you all!
