    I bought a used '99 528i with a bit over 200k from a guy yesterday who said it had an idle problem. It does idle weird, but it doesn't stall out it just kinda shakes. However, the guy I bought it from didn't mention that the car accelerates really rough when driving 25-50 or so MPH. Especially...

    I'm looking to upgrade my whole sound system (I have a 99 528i with a non dsp syatem) and couldn't find a list of everything I would need(speaker size, quantity, watts, brand etc.) will pioneer speakers do the job? IV wired a complete sound system into my 95 chevy truck. Everything is...

    Ok, so my car will not start anymore, as of yesterday, but lets start from the beginning. 1 year ago: my security alarm system stopped working(probably irrelevant for this post) a couple months ago, when temps started cooling(live in chicago): rough idling. the car would idle at lower and...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I'm going to look at a 99 540 with a six speed. In reviewing the forum, it appears there are a number of repairs which could show up between 75K to 100K miles - vanos, water pump, valve cover gaskets to name a few. Questions - how well can these problems be looked at prior to purchase. Not...

    Like the title says im just wondering if they did since I am thinking about switching out the manuals ones for electric if they exist at all.

    Hi, recently my 99 BMW 323i has been misfiring when starting up. It would make a popping/cracking noise under the hood, and then would stop. However, it does sometimes have rough idling, and after idle, it would have no power it would only go to 20 MPH, when the gas pedal is pushed down all the...
