Good luck with it. Calling the junkyard may not get you much info. Mine won't even walk out to see if the transmission is still in the car. These are pretty low budget operations.

If the issue started after service, check for bent pins in the round connector. You need to use a small mirror to see in there.

A few months ago I decided I wanted to retrofit an LCI camera and TRSCV into my CIC retrofitted pre-lci E70. I just wanted to be able to see in the dark. First I had to get an LCI junction box and...

Post a picture of what is in the trunk. 2013 has the satelite radio built into the head unit so there is not a module in the trunk for that.

Good find ARD. I think OP got an old stock hose. The part number is the same for both. 2013 won't have the sensor right? I think they got rid of that in 2007.

You may also want to consider the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. They were not available for the E70 until recently. I have that tire on all 3 of my BMWs.

The airbag release holes are hidden. Feel around for soft spots. Then go in at a 45-degree angle. When you find the spring you can feel the tension.

Unless it is a 2006 E90 N52 (non turbo). All 330i and 325i have ZF. There have been a few posts about 2007+ 328i E92/93 N52 that have the ZF but those are very rare.
