    Using the AGA tool. Did bank 2 first and without issue. Working the rear intake valve under the “cage” on cylinder 2, the spring popped a bit as I was removing the lifter. It was just enough to shoot one of the keepers into another realm. I cant find it, I’ve stuck the magnet into every corner...

    Hi everyone, I am looking to make the exhaust a bit louder. I see popular options are resonator delete and catless down pipes. I was hoping to get input on the pros and cons or experience. I hear emissions can be a problem as well. any information is helpful. Thanks in advance!

    I was driving down the highway when my ‘07 550 started sputtering and dying I could start it drive it at decreasing intervals till it just wouldn’t start any more. After some research I believed it was either the fuel pump or the Fuel pump control unit( I think it called the EKP but I could be...

    Hello forum, this is my first post and I have a question that I haven't been able to find the answer to. I am considering buying an f10 550i Xdrive tomorrow with the M sport package. It has the M sport wheels, bumpers, skirts, and steering wheel from what I can see from pictures. My question is...

    Hello BMW Fam, I am working on my 550i and doing a total upgrade of almost everything I can into this vehicle. I already put a lot of money into it, and back in February (in Michigan) I had found myself sliding and going into a guardrail. Instead of totaling it, or spending a quoted $6k in...

    Hey, so I admittedly don't know much but have been reading some threads on this website to learn more about BMW's and try as best I can to educate myself in a short period of time but had the thought to also create a thread. I know there can fairly significant nuances between different year...

    Looking @ a 2013 550i. I am well aware of the battery issues related to efficient dynamics. Are there any relatively cheap battery tenders that will work without issue on these batteries? My cars sit parked for the entire summer and I don't want to mess up the battery if possible.

    My 2012 550 runs great, but it won't pass smog! It Hass 177k miles on it and when I asked the mechanic what I should do, he said "I don't know...scrap it". It is a nice car, in great shape, but for this problem. Any thoughts? Also, if I do have to scrap it, what would be a good choice for a...

    Hello everyone, I was recently shopping for a 2014 and up 550i when I came across one I liked. Accordingly, I did a quick carfax and noticed the engine had been replaced in late 2017, was there some sort of recall I am not aware about on the N63TU engine? I do know the predecessor to the TU had...

    Having a nightmare of an issue hopefully someone can help me rectify. Car is a 2006 BMW 550i automatic with 97k miles. Problem: When coming to a stop the car shifts weird, dips below a certain RPM and stalls out. This is EXTREMELY dangerous as I lose all power...steering, brakes, everything! So...
  13. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Posting some pics I feel do a "decent" job of representing the color. In truth, it's really hard to capture it in pictures; it's truly magnificent. I ordered it sight unseen and was a bit worried (most online pics were too gray or too blue for me) - hoping these might help others with color...

    Hi there. Long time lurker, first time poster. I have a question regarding the Fuel Pump relay system and associated codes for an E60 w/ 4.8l engine: A few weeks ago during a recent cold snap, I needed to jump start my 550. I had the car on a charger for an hour or so and when I attempted to...
