    Alright guys so after searching for aftermarket wheels I decided to go with the Niche Targa wheels. Personally I fell in love with my "reliable" car again. I went with staggered 19x9.5 rear, 19x8.5 front, with 35 mm offset. I would love to read your opinions and suggestions as where/what to do...

    Hi, Vehicle: BMW 530xi (e61) 2005 Problem: Left front CV drive shaft comes in two different lengths with the same part no. 31607570275. The one on my car should be 638,55mm (according to both BMW and ruler...) but all aftermarket seem to be 611mm and too short to fit- (i tried...) This is a bit...

    I have an E60 with blade key instead of push to start. The screen also lists off as follows: Communication, Car Data, Entertainment, Climate. Is there a way to install Navigation on it through dvd? If not, is there a good retrofit CarPlay or nice CCC upgrade? 2006 BMW 530xi

    I recently purchased a 2007 530xi with 165k km on it, first thing I did was get the oil changed because I wasn’t sure exactly how to check the oil when I first purchased the vehicle due to there being no dipstick. Anyways, I got the shop to top off the car And as soon as I left the lot the I...

    Hello all, I have already read basically everything that available about this problem but have yet to find someone who had the same problem as me. Since I have owned it, the tailgate on my '06 530xiT will resist opening and closing, making it very difficult to use. When I press the button on...

    :hi:I know there are quite a few threads already on this subject which may also be part of my problem on how the best way to go about removing the sunshades, recovering and then reinstalling them would be done since there are so many DIY's, video's and PDF's I think I have information overload...

    Hey everyone, I have loved this RPI axleback exhaust but am moving and selling the car this year so my RPI axleback exhaust is for sale. I don't have pictures yet as I am taking it off this weekend. But let me know if you are interested and I can send pictures. It lists for $889 on RPIs site...
  11. Parting Out
    I’m selling off the remaining parts from a Titan Silver wrecked 530i sedan that I bought to harvest parts for my own wagon. Many of these parts will fit a wagon. The car had less than 70k and was hit low in the front, it actually hit a tall curb and sheared off a good part of the front...

    Hello everyone, I just recently got into BMW and cars in general. A lot of the questions I had before buying I found answers to on this site, so I thought I'd join! I bought and now currently drive a 2007 530xi with the M-Sport package. I bought the car off my buddy who'd done his best to...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hie everyone, I'm new to this forum, my name is Alexis, and I drive a 2006 530XI. Today, I'd like your opinion on what wheels I should get for it. I know it should be my own decision, but a few opinions wouldn't hurt. So yeah... what wheels do you think would look good on my car? I don't have...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2006 530xi and I was just wondering if there are any fairly cheap upgrades that I can do to get more power from my car. I don't have a lot of money to spend and definitely not enough to sell my car and get like a 535 or 335. I have the sports button which makes the car feel more nimble...
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    i'm hoping to find out if the 19" oem rims from a '13 550xi would fit on my '07 530xi wagon.
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Looking for some advice on tire/wheel options. I would like to get anew set of wheels. My originals have some curb rash so rather go new than invest to have these refinished. And it's close to tire time due to wear. Current wheels are 17 inch. Has anyone gone to 18 inch and if so are there any...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Unfortunately, my first post here is because my 530xi digested the serpentine belt and is now a rather large paperweight. I'm not wanting to put in a rebuilt engine for $5700. Are there people here that would want parts from it? It is silver and in pretty good condition except for a slight...

    Hello, Recently I just got back from a year long trip. Suddenly on my 2006 BMW 530XI the drivers master switch doesn't work so I can't put the window down on any side or move the side mirrors. Also, the passenger's window and doesn't open. The steering functions don't seem to work along with...
