  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I bought a 550i 2008 from the auction. Car only has 106k miles on it. You turn the car on gauges lights i drive and all comes on and works. Push button to crank and it doesn't do anything. Replaced ivm and valvetronic module due to the module being burnt on circuit board. Battery is working...
  2. 5 Series
    I’ve had my 2008 550i for about 8 months now, after the first month I sent it in the shop for some preventative maintenance and because my alternator went out. After that first month I’ve had to deal with limp mode and dtc malfunctions every single week. It keeps throwing up throttle position...

    My friend thought it would be cool to single/dual my 2008 550i, but looking inside my engine bay... it looks like there's close to no room at all even to put even a single turbo in it. If anyone out there has an E60 5 series that's turbo'd (turbo'd well, not just shoving it in a corner) to let...

    Hello all, After years of being afraid to take the plunge and go from the inline 6 to the big 8, I finally did it and bought a used 2008 550i with sports package. The car is incredibly clean, has a good bill of health mechanically, and I love it. I would like to give it a tune-up as I think...

    Hi all. Newbie to the forum. I've owned an '84 325e and '85 735i, but it's been a long time. I have an opportunity to buy a 2008 550i manual with 110,000 miles on it for $6500. Don't have records (from a friend who doesn't have). Took it to my Indy who said it needs about $3500 in repairs: Oil...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    First off I'd like to say hello to everyone on the forum. I'm new here, and I am very interested in getting an e60 550i something around 06-08 probably, newer if I find a good deal. In any case I'm a college student, and I was wondering how reliable these cars are, especially once they start...

    Hey guys, The patient: 2008 550i, Manual Transmission, 72,500 miles The Symptoms: The car threw a Low Coolant warning so I check the tank and sure enough it was low. At this point I was 85 miles from home so I figured it was a slow leak because we made the trip on Friday night. I topped it...

    Hey guys i'm planning to buy my first car in June and have been some research but this is starting to drive me nuts. There is so many options with BMW and I cant choose a car. I have about 9-12 grand I can spend and have been mostly looking at the 2008 335i, 535i, and 550i. For the price i've...

    I just got 550i 2008 sport package and all going really well. Is it normal that Service Engine Light doesn't show during first few seconds when starting an engine on this model?
