    Hello, My sunshade (privacy curtain) on the right right passenger door has come off its track. I have taken the door panel off but am unsure how to continue. The other side fell off during a car accident and the total was $3K to get fixed (luckily their insurance covered it). Has anybody had...

  4. General BMW Questions
    So, I am curious as to whether or not the infamous timing chain guides on the M62 engine are a terminal issue. If I were to buy an E38 740i (with bad guides), could I safely drive it home without fear of the engine letting go? I guess what I'm asking is, what bad things happen when the timing...
  5. General BMW Questions
    Hello! I am currently looking to buy an E38 740i and am just seeking advice. What do we think of the 740i, the engine, driving experience, ease to work on (or lack thereof, I prefer to do my own work)? I've driven one and just loved it, I have my heart set on the E38. And, hypothetically, if I...

    Hey guys, My wife was driving my 7 series to work the other day, drove perfectly fine to her job, she shut it off, worked the day, came out and every single light was on the dash. We are getting codes for the dme, egs, vtg, safety restrains, instrument cluster, parking brake, junction box, car...

    I hope that someone here can help me with an issue with the wiring allocation from the green 24 pin plug to the IVM. There are a group of 4 green wires plus another 2 green wires coming from the green connector at the IVM. Rats have chewed through the wiring and I am trying to reconnect these 6...

    Hello, I Have A 2006 BMW 760LI V12, It is shut down on 6 cylinders, aka bank 1 is down, the car runs alright, it tries to stall out when you put it in drive/reverse, and it has a bit of a tough time starting and keeping running, but when you give it some time you CAN drive it, but its incredibly...
  11. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    I’ve been trying to figure out if the G12 is truly safe, would looking at 5 series safety be any barometer? I know these aren’t crash tested, but we have two kids in car seats and want to make sure we have the safest car possible. Im pulling the trigger on a 2018 on Wednesday. Also, anyone...
  12. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I have a 2010 750Lix. Might be a dumb question but I don't know much at all when it comes to tuning cars. I've seen that the BMS stage 1 is highly recommended, but is the JB4 tuner just as compatible or effective? Also, are there any recommended turbo upgrades of any sort?

    Hey All, I currently own a 335 GT but am looking for a super comfortable commute car that also has some hybrid features.

    I'm looking to get back to the BMW world once (had a brief ownership with E36 & E46 for a short while).
