    Hey guys so my 2003 BMW 525i started giving me an problem that I don't know what it can be from. Every time from a full stop when I take off I hear a small clicking/clacnking noise for that one second and its gone. Ive tried tightening the lug nuts and it wasn't that. Does anyone know what I can...

    I bought my 03 e39 last April at about 150,000 miles and now it has 161700 miles. Since I don't know when the previous owner replaced the spark plug, I'm going to replace all of them with NGK BKR6EQUP this winter. I heard some people say I should replace the ignition coils and spark plug boots...

    I have 03 525i sedan and it has about 160,500 miles on its odometer. I bought this car last May when it had around 150,000 miles on it, and since then I have had no issues on the engine. I have changed the motor oil once, and I regularly check other important fluids such as brake fluid, coolant...

    Hi buddies. I drive a '03 E39 525i M54. Yesterday an unexpected problem came out of nowhere. That is when I lock my car using the key fob, all the other doors lock except for my driver's side one. It stays unlocked (popped out). So what i did was, enter the car from rear doors and manually...

    New to the forum, first time post. I know there is probably a thread about this, but I'm about to go catch a flight and can't go searching all of the E39 forum. I'm working with a 2003 525i with 115000+ miles. I don't want to sell it because it has been in my family forever and I am...

    I live in the Los Angeles area. I have a 02 525i wagon. I'm looking to buy the M5 style front/rear bumper (PU material). Anybody know where I can get a good price? Any shops around the LA area or someone selling with shipping for good price?

    Hey everyone. I have read your threads for awhile now, and I am very impressed with the brotherhood and assistance. I owned a 98 528i for 5 years and sold it at 316k on it. That was a great car. I decided to go with 03 525i after the sale of the 1st. This car has been great also...

    I am considering purchasing a 2003 525i wagon with 86,000 miles. It has had one owner, [supposedly] had all of its maintenance performed at the dealership, and has the premium and cold weather packages. My concerns are these: After checking consumer reports, it states that it received the...
