    I recently got a BMW e39 525i. I was wondering if it is worth modifying, or just leave it the way it is? I don't care as much as high performance goes, because I know it's slow, but I would love to modify the cosmetics with some wheels and suspension. Just trying to get some advice.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
