3.0i

  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just acquired a 2008 X5 6cyl. I’m interested in getting a handheld scan tool that can not only read the codes but also update/clear/battery code. Any suggestions? I have looked at foxwell
  2. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    2006 BMW X5 3.0i. Rear wiper motor literally broke into pieces presumably as a result of struggling against ice. No problems with the rear wiper motor leading up to this failure. Ordered a used rear wiper motor and installed it. Still doesn't work. Checked both fuses as good. There is power at...
  3. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi all! I am here for some urgent advise. YESTERDAY I bought a 2005 Z4 3.0i from a dealer "As is". I had it inspected by a BMW mechanic who said it was "mechanically sound and exceeds expectations". But, after 30 miles on the way home (!) the transmission malfunction light came on. Stopped the...

    Hello all, This is my first BMW and after deciding to give it a coolant flush i thought i should have a look at how to do it :) I have watched a number of different videos that talk about the electric water pump and using the bleed system to remove air bubbles. (ignition on(don't start)...

    Hi all, just joined this forum so good to be in a place with like minded enthusiasts. I'm sure you're all pretty familiar with the lifter noise in the '06 3.0 and while I can make it go away if I drive it, my wife toots around town so it gets a bit embarrassing not to mention annoying. I've...
  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I'm stumped! This past weekend I drove my X5 about 100miles, turned off the car, a minute later got back in, drove another 30 miles, and shut down the car. As I was shutting it down, I noticed it took a while for the windows to roll back up. Seemed strange, but I was in a rush so I ignored it...

    I bought my very 1st BMW. It is a 2003 X5 3.0i. Thanks! I am trying to pair my iPhone 5s. I have a face on the bottom left of the steering wheel and a phone button on the radio. No navigation system in the vehicle. There is a microphone on the right of the sunroof control panel headliner...

    Since my DD, Acura 3.5 RL flagship vehicle has decided to swallow a little water in a recent swimming accident in heavy rains, leaving her no longer, that reliable Japanese tin can. I am now in the market for an SUV and want to get back to BMW. I miss my old '88 635csi, but need a enclosed...
  9. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hey all, Newbie here and soon to be regular! I'm trying to heavily decide on which of two cars I want to purchase. One is a 2001 Automatic Z3 Coupe fully loaded and the other is a Manual 1999 Z3 Coupe. The actual M version is out of my price range at the moment. But the difference in...

  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I am trying to find a way to have my GPS plugged in all the time. I have read elsewhere that I could adapt the flashlight plug, but I don't think the 3.0i came with a flashlight. I have found a plug in the glove box with two wires (Orange and Purple) running out of the back. The plug itself had...

  14. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Cliffs Notes ***8211; Good fit and finish. Cutting required; no welding. Minimal drone. Really opens up in the high rpm. Probably the best-engineered non-M exhaust system on the market. This should have been the very first modification done to the car. Background ***8211; The early M54...

    Up for sale is my supercharged 2003 Z4 3.0i. I'm the third owner. The first owner lived out west and drove it daily. The second owner lived in New York, but used it as a weekend car and it saw no snow or anything. I've driven it as something as a mix, driving it somewhere around 4-5 days a...

    EDIT: I've posted this on a few more sites like Craigslist now, and I've adjusted the price a bit to go along with that. Up for sale is my supercharged 2003 Z4 3.0i. I'm the third owner. The first owner lived out west and drove it daily. The second owner lived in New York, but used it as a...

    OK So I did The Dreaded Oil Separator DIY Yesterday with help from this and other blogs. No one actual had instructions for the E53 , they showed M54 engine ok but maybe not exact procedure as E53 X5. Took everything apart in 1 hour easy. Then put 1 st to Valve cover, easy, 2 nd hose going...
