    Hi everyone, I've got an issue with my 2011 535i: When I close the driver door, I can hear something near the lock or handle clicking/ticking multiple times (maybe 6 times). It could be a soft close issue or actuator or motor, but I wouldn't know exactly without replacing parts on by one, so...

    Hi guys, Is $690 for an alternator replacement (with Bosch rebuilt) and the diagnostic work to figure it out a fair price? Or am I being burned here? I've worked with this mechanic several times, but now that he has gotten pretty big, I feel like he no longer feels the need to hook up the...

    I want to replace the touchscreen of my 2008 535i with a new touchscreen compatible with Bluetooth. What brands are the best and what are the best places to buy from? Is it recommended to just buy from Bimmerfest? Where do I get it installed as well, Best Buy? Thanks!

    The auto tranny on my 1991 535i with over 300,000 miles on it just blew out, so rather than getting it rebuilt i'd like to do a manual swap. I'll take whatever parts you have, but most importantly I need a 5 speed Getrag 260/6 with all of the mounting hardware, the transmission mounting...
