    I have a 2014 550i with 90k miles. Should I use semi-synthetic oil now? Non-synthetic oil can cause engine sludge, but if I use top-tier gasoline, will this offset the sludge build up and be the best way to extend the life of my vehicle? two part question here-
  3. General BMW Questions
    I’ve been running my 2014 550i on 93 octane from a non-top tier gas station and want to switch to top-tier gasoline. The problem is, the only top tier gas station near me is Marathon and their highest octane they have is 91 octane. My question is, what is more important? Is it better to use 93...

    It only has 39k miles and never has been modified in any way. I don’t like how quiet the car is. I’m wondering what are some easy affordable options to make it sound better. Even though I’ve had a 335 and a 435 before this im new to modifying. This is the first car I really want to turn into a...

    So my car is having an issue where after it warms up it can die at idle. Not always and the problem is much worse on hills. Things I know: Vacuum lines are ok - tested all of them Short term fuel trim is around +30% after it warms up Low pressure fuel pump gives inconsistent pressure (quickly...

    Hi all, new to the forum. Had this 2008 550i for ~2 months. Had full service shortly after I got it, to try to start out from a good base. Mechanic said it was nice, clean, nothing glaringly unhealthy. Recently have noticed that when the engine is warm there is a strange noise coming from the...

    I have a 2011 550i that's smoking from a long idle. Told it was valve seals or could be the PCV valve needing replaced. Anyone know anyone in Denver to do the replacment without having to dump 10k into the service?
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Has anyone put catless downpipes in their car and then had Dinan tune it and used the cel delete kit? Thinking about doing it to my 550, but can't find much info on the cel delete. Do they actually work or am I going to end up regretting the Dinan because of the cel...
  16. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I got a 14’ 550i that’s makes a oil burn smell especially when I gas it, saw something online saying it could possibly be my oil cap seal has gone bad and it leaks there which would be awesome if that’s it lol . I took some pics where it looks like oil comes out because it’s all black and gunky...

    Well I was driving home from lunch with a friend when suddenly there was a loud bang, then a grinding noise. When I pulled over it was idling very rough, like car was shaking. Trans fault popped up, then check engine light. Engine oil was changed less than a month ago, so was coolant. Valve...

    Hi I’m new to the page, but this seems like the best place to get owner feedback on which car I want to buy. I’ve narrowed it down to 2011-2013 550i or a 335i of the same year and I’m looking for some feedback from owners of these cars. Any reliability issues mainly as neither of these 2 cars...
  19. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So, I have a 2011 550i with the n63 engine. I got it for a reasonable price, there was a few problems with the engine. It was drinking oil, it had fried piston ring, the valve seals were leaking, and the turbo lines were leaking. So I decided the best option was to do an engine swap. Because the...
  20. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Was casually accelerating from a red light and the car made a loud clunk noise and maybe some grinding afterwords. initially assumed tranny problems. (Was hoping my flex disk failed.) Front and rear flex disks are fine. Front has minor dry rot and rear looks brand new. Jacked up the rear and...
