    I currently live in the UAE and I bought a used 2009 525i, that appeared to be in great shape, however after having it a couple months and having some work done on it, I am starting to have a few problems. The single biggest thing is rough idle after a cold start. My code reader flags a P0155...

    Hey, i have recently replaced the o-ring in the clutch slave cylinder in my E61 525i ssg. After getting the slave cylinder back into the car i filled up the hydraulic system, bled the system with inpa before starting the gear adaption/clutch biting point procedure. In the end of the...

    I used to have a cup holder that went in the center by the stereo and now I don’t have it anymore. Does anyone know where I can get one? I’ve been looking around but the cup holders I see aren’t the one I used to have.

    I'm a fairly technical person, and have a leak on the Valve cover Gasket, I've never touched this before, and just wanna know what can go wrong, and how do I avoid silly mistakes?

    Hi peeps Just got my touring. It's nice! But it's a bit soft and spongy. It's at 170k miles so I gotta replace all shocks and springs. Its lowered at the moment. But that's not my thing. I want to go back to stock height and ride quality. Maybe slightly stiffer in the rear for handling. I'm not...

    I've searched far and wide to try to find an answer to what is causing this annoying rattling sound I can hear inside the car. There is a rattling noise coming from either behind the iDrive screen, the steering wheel, or in between the both of them under the dash. It sounds like something is...

    Hi, I'm feeling really stupid at this point, but I'm getting error 009C54 in Carly, which indicates that the AUC sensor needs replacement, but I can't locate the sensor. So I ordered AUC sensor 693305201 and replaced this. This one was located directly near the hood lock if you know what I...

    So, I've got a 2007 E60 525i w/ 104k miles, mostly self-maintained since I bought it at around 48k miles in 2012. Two years ago I had issues with these codes, but I was able to get rid of them by cleaning the OEM solenoids IIRC. I did this while I was overhauling the cooling system and valve...

    Hello all, Earlier today I ran the gas station, filled up my tank, and tried to start my car, nothing no instrument cluster, no relay click, nothing. Two days ago I put in a new thermostat and have put about 100 miles on it between the installation and my car ****ting the bed at the pump. I...
