    Hey all, recently I've been looking at some used BMWs on Craigslist and there's some good ones I'm taking a liking to, however, I've just been wondering about the seats. Now, I've come across these two models - both 1998 318ti's- and one says it had leather seats and the other ad says theirs...

    Washer fluid is leaking out of my car near the transmission. I have a 96 318ti. It would appear that somewhere the line that carries the fluid to the rear window is what is leaking. I have spent the last hour searching here and the vastness of the world wide web to no avail with regards to a...

    Bought this off a friend as a "Hoopty" to get me by when school starts up again in the fall. The previous owner had messed with the car quite a bit. Wrong tires so the car sits low, rewired the ignition switch and installed a bad push start button, there was an oil leak. etc. I replaced the...

    SOooooo I somehow managed to activate the deadlock system in my car after i have had it for ages and never experienced this. I didn't get the car with a fob and somehow my EWS II engaged something after i unplugged it and plugged it back in. First i was locked IN the car but i had the keys and...

    Hello, I recently purchased a second hand 318ti and the car runs like a dream, however it did not come with an owners manual. I changed the oil for the first time recently, as I didn't have the manual to go off of, I went with the mechanics recommendation and now the car has major oil leakage. I...

    I have no vacuum in the secondary air system. All components downstream from the canister are working fine. The furthest I've trace the vacuum line back to its source is the canister, (which is under the lower intake manifold and very difficult to access.) In a diagram of the secondary air...

    I’ve been a long time lurker, but registered explicitly so I could post this: Those of you with the M44 motor (318ti, Z3, etc.) may already know the heartache of the mysterious intermittent rough idle. My wife’s had this car from the day we bought it, but it was at a tolerable level. The...

    I recently acquired a '95 318ti and I'm looking to do some upgrades along with a few general repairs I found needed to be done. The car at this point is completely stock other than wheels (which are 17" BMW radial spoke). I was having no luck trying to find performance ignition components...

    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)

    Looking at installing an aftermarket stereo unit in my 2004 Compact E46. Have no idea how to install the new radio. Any advice? Can I do it myself or should I pay someone to do it? Any additional cables required? Will the steering wheel controls work? Any advice would me much appreciated. Cheers
