  2. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hi all, I recently purchased an E36 328i auto with 110k miles on the clock. Everything seemed fine when driving the car until last night; when i put the car into park after a drive the car randomly shut off on its own. I tried to restart it for around about 5 mins before getting out, locking the...

  5. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi, Has anyone tried out the echo auto? Looks cool and I’ve got mine ordered! Hoping to get the token generator for the e-sys software so I can code enhanced Bluetooth instead of the crappy aux connection that is in the M235i. Does anyone know the best place to get that? I tried PMing...
  6. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hello guys, Just bought a F20 with manual transmission from 2014, at a very good price, with intense to use some money and make it automatic. I will start to ask not to offer me sell manual and buy auto, because here in Denmark we have enormous taxes on the cars, and auto vs manual has a price...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    This may be a silly question but do 325i wheel bearing/hubs work with 325xi? I want to replace the hub/bearing as one piece as that is how the Haynes manual recommends doing it. I also have about 0.007" run out from the wheel hub/bearing which is why I want to replace the hub and bearing in case...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Finally bought my first car! It's a 2009 BMW E90 328I LCI model In Bluewater Metallic. It has the xenon headlights, sunroof, hifi sound, and a few other options. I just installed new rotors and pads and she drives like a dream now. Loving that n52 engine and rwd! It is the 6spd auto, :rofl: but...
  9. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    Help... Please. 2011 Auto 2.0 X1 engine issue (intermittent) My best effort to explain the problem, here it goes. At low speeds or pulling off from a junction, sometimes, I accelerate and nothing happens bar a slow crawl - I've figured out two ways to keep going: 1- floor it and after a few...
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey everyone, I’m very clearly new to these boards but as made evident by the title, I’m also a new BMW owner as well! Additionally, this is the first European car I’ve ever owned as well so a lot of firsts here. Now onto my questions: 1.) the manual says it requires 5W-40 full synth. I have...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Okay, So as the title says I want to put an SMG transmission on my 325ci. I know that it will physically fit (the M54 and S54 have the same bolt pattern). Now how hard will it be to program the DME? Can i get a DME from an M3 and use that? Now Please i don't want any hate over my choice to want...
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, I recently bought a used X3, and a month after buying it, the E-Tank decided to blow up. Thought I had a little more time to change it as it was top of the list, but such is life. I happened to have an old E-Tank lying around from my E46, so I fitted it and happily started filling it...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    the dealer told me that the reason the lights on the shift knob do not work is that the "ribbon" is cracking and wanted around $500 to fix it. Is it really that hard to fix? My concern is that the shifter would no longer change gears. Has this happened to anyone? Has anyone seen a DIY on...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, This is my first post here, hopefully I posted under the right category. So a few months ago I got a BMW E46 320d Touring Automatic with 355k km (220k miles) for my 18th birthday. It ran fine for a couple of days then the turbo died, leading to a diesel runaway. The engine was totaled...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Autobox works fine for a while, then goes into "get home mode", then resets. Got a gearbox error message and took it to the dealer. At first they said "need a new box" (£4,000) but then thought "perhaps just the control unit will do it" (£500). It didn't. They have also changed the fluid...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I'm looking to see if anyone knows if the automatic trunk pop when you pull on the handle was only started in 1999 or if it should work on the 1998 models as well. Also, if the 1998 model is supposed to have it, what could be causing it to not work.
  17. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Got a 330d on a 52 plate and the auto gearbox is shot! Anyone know of, or recommend someone who could recon or supply new gearbox? Got the info off of the gearbox but don't know what it all means, which of the three different numbers is the actual part number?
