    Hi, Yesterday my 525d started vibrating in 3rd gear at between 2500-3500rpm ish. It's only really noticeable at 50% throttle or more. I've tested it several times and it is consistent. In all of the other gears, there are no signs of vibrations no matter how I drive. The flex-plate / guibo and...

    Hello, fellow BMW-enthusiasts! I recently purchased a used BMW e61 525d. When I came home I suddenly heard a strange noise when I pushed the clutch pedal in (I'll leave a video for reference). As you probably can see in the video footage when I push the pedal in it makes a strange noise and rpm...

    I have a BMW 525d estate 53 plate and quite often I get a dashboard alert saying the self level suspension is inactive. It flicks on and off and when it does it also affects the headlights and dashboard lights, they seem to drop for a second when the alert shows and when it disappears. Has...

    Hi I'm writting on behalf of my parents, who own 2007 525d e60. They bought the car over a half year ago and had no troubles with it, but since last 2 weeks. The battery is running low over night and car doesn't start in the morning. They thought it's battery issue and ordered a new one online...

    A friend has a 2004 E60 with the iDrive Business (aka M-ASK), and I'm trying to find out how to burn the 2017 maps to a DVD to be used in his navigation. Maps is a loose term, because the M-ASK navigation is essentially just directional arrows and voice. I have access to the 2017 maps for...

    Hi, Is there a test or secret menu that provides the coolant temp info, at what temp should the radiator fan come on, never saw mine coming on and wondered if there's a problem. The 525d F10 2010 only has an engine oil temp gauge, no coolant temp gauge. Also the radiator has flap covers on the...

    Hi All, Hopefully someone will have an answer for me; I woke up this-morning and went down to my car (a Dec-2010 525d) to find both front windows open about 2 or 3 inches. The car was still locked with the mirrors folded in and I live in a 10th floor apartment from which the key doesn't...

    Hello, I thinking to get diesel F10 with V6 engine, so i checking for 2010-2011 525d or 530d (535d is out of budget).

    Hoping to get some advice... My M Sport was recently broken into on my drive, they tried getting in through the driver-side lock, smashed the window and obliterated the ignition barrel. Now im not sure whether the alarm went off during this attempt. The repairers said that they did the quality...
