  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello, I am at a loss I can't get my car to start. One day when I got off work I got in my car and it wouldn't start... The first message the car gave me was starter/ignition malfunction. So after getting it towed back home and some time I got around to replacing the starter. After being...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, Just bought a second hand bimmer and the dome light / light above the vanity mirror hasn't been working since I purchased it. All the other interior lights work fine (glovebox/footwell/rear interior) I have tried replacing all the fuses and the bulbs, but still nothing. I am opting...
  3. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hey guys i’m new to the forums, I had a question about my F30 328i because I can’t find much info on this topic anywhere. basically I got this 2012 328i around 8 months ago and i’m fully building it to the extent it can be, and in the beginning while being broken in it would throw low boost...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Good afternoon, I have a 2007 BMW 328i convertible. My key fob and central Locking System stopped working last night. I replaced fuse #57 with the 15a fuses. After letting the car run for a minute to give the fuses ample time to activate, the central Locking System and key fob began to work...

    I’m so over this shit spent all day at the dealerships and my brain feels like scrambled eggs anyways I’m going to purchase a 328i on Monday after not having a car for a couple months and have 3 potential prospects all on the same bmw exclusive lot. One at 111 one at 129 and one at 136 mileage...
  6. 3 Series & 4 Series
    I took my car to a bmw dealership for some recalls so I figured I'd get a diagnostic. I had seen the running lean codes so I hoped they could tell me what was wrong. They told me the valve cover gasket was bad, would this be the cause of it running lean?
  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Kind of a long story on my 2007 x3 3.0si, but it will start (takes longer than it should though), runs really rough for a second, then dies. Seems like it is only firing on a couple cylinders. I picked it up at a repo auction with no history on the vehicle. When I got it, it would run rough...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So not a whole lot of info on this but I got a 08 328i n51 and judging from the Vin it has a ZF transmission but it's my understanding that there are two ZF transmissions. GA6HP19Z and A6HP19Z. How do I tell which one I have and what the hell is the difference? Thanks

    I do not have much free time, or I would have taken it to a shop. However, my drivers side door will not lock/unlock with the fob, or the button on the inside. the actuator does not seem to be broken, and i wont lie, this seemed to happen whenever I went over a "bigger" bump in the road...

    I am posting for my 19 year old dyslexic son who bought a BMW 328i off a cousin. The cousin had previously had transmission trouble and bought a new transmission. He then decided he didn't want the car anymore so my son bought it and the replacement transmission. We paid a local mechanic to do...

    I have a 2015 bmw 328i. Today I had the windows cracked while I was working. It started to rain so I went and rolled up the windows and waited out the shower in my car. Once the shower passed I cracked the windows again and went back to work. Once I got done and ready to leave, I noticed my...

    It's been 6 months now and my car still won't go over 2000 rpm ... 2nd gear is as far as it will go. I attached a screenshot from my odb reader. Anybody else had this issue? Limp mode, abs lights, traction control and CEL. So far I've replaced the valve cover, both fuel pumps, the fuel...

    Hey gang, My fiancé, my one year old son and I drove from Oklahoma to Louisiana last weekend. It’s about an 8 hour drive each way. We debated on whether to take my wife’s X5 or my 328i. Because of gas prices and my car being the more fun to drive on open highways, we ended up taking the 328i...

    I have a 2009 328i, obviously with the N52. I bought the car in the summer and don't know when the plugs and coils have last been changed and I have been having rough start ups and rough idle, so I think it's time to change them plugs and coils. What is the best brand for this NGK or Bosch. This...

    I replaced my headlight only about 6 months ago with no problems it worked fine until now. I went on a trip and my girlfriends mom was using my car and when I got back the bulb was out again, thinking I must have just gotten a bad bulb, I replaced it again only this time to no avail. So I used...

    So I swapped a engine in my bmw 325i e90 N52 to a engine from a 328i e90 (magnesium Valve cover to plastic) so I got the engine in realizing that the wiring harness didn't fit with the connectors on the car and so I took the engine out, swapped over the harness and put everything back together...
