    Hi im brand new to this forum. Im a new driver. First car is a BMW 316TI. Ive looked a lil on the internet for some nice mods (aesthetic/visual) and I see a couple but it will only be maybe 1 or 2 things on a website selling them. Am I looking horribly wrong or do they just not really exist...

    Have a 316ti with N46 engine, heard some are problematic. Is this true or are they good cars? Should I sell mine. Just had it serviced, I do have a small engine oil leak, due to a lose seal or o-ring. I love the car but should I sell it to save myself from problems?

    Okay So I have a minor coolant leak, and whilst diagnosing the leak I removed the Air filter Box, and started the car to check for the leak. The transmission Cog light appeared, have never seen this light before and have never appeared before. I contacted the BMW dealer and he said it is a...

    Driving home today and noticed white steam coming from under the bonnet, got home and the water was completely empty. Engine gauge was normal. Refilled water and revved car, engine gauge went to hot. Not sure what the problem is? Could be a water hose leak? (BMW 2004 compact)

    Hi I thought I would share my experience with the error code P1159 to help some of you out. I bought my first BMW a week ago which is a 316 ti compact 2002. The next day the emissions light came on (after owning an Alfa and spending many weekends under it I thought i was buying a more reliable...

    Hi Guys new to the forum but planning on being here a long time :) My first post is an issue I've just developed in my 2002 Manual 316Ti the other day it decided that it no longer liked being changed into first gear whilst moving, by this it just feels like the gears are grinding. Now I know...

    I'm new to the BMW scene, just bought a '95 316ti, very nice! I've been looking around the web for an explanation but cannot find one! if someone could walk me through it, (i don't even know where the coil pack is, so pictures would be nice) it'd be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    I have a 2003 316ti compact, with only 56,000km on the clock. I have just had to replace an ignition coil, and have been told by the local BMW dealer that it is now likely that the other coils will also fail. I am disappointed that I have had to replace an ignition coil so soon, and wonder...
