    Hi guys I recently bought my '06 523i N52 RHD SE. Mine has had 16" hideous style 134s and the previous owner has swapped them for more stylish 18" style 252s. He has purchased the new alloys along with tires in them. Here's the problem I have now. When my car sits on a flat ground the rear is...

    Rims (18's) offsets are: 20 F 32 R I have 20mm spacers & 15mm spacers Final offset for 15mm spacers would be: 5 F 17 R Final offset for 20mm spacers would be: 0 F 12 R What setup would be safe to use? or should I mix them, 15mm spacers for the Front and 20mm spacers for the rear ?

    Not sure if this DIY fix has been posted here already, but i thought i'd share, since we all can relate and its rather easy to do, and better than putting tape on it.

    I've noticed when I turn on my Autio headlight switch, the green light now blinks and lights dont move when turning the wheel. Only thing i've done to the car before that, was i unplugged my fog light because the housing had came loose, other than that, i've haven't messed with anything. Been...

    Couple days ago, I decided to check how warm my engine has been running, and it reaches up to 85.c in 30-50 degree weather... I remember back in the summer time of 2016 before I completely flushed out my (green / old) coolant it was operating at a normal 97.C which is normal for m54 engine...

    I have a 2006 BMW 530i with the n52b30a engine. So its misfiring on cylinders one and six. i know a couple of ignition coils are going bad but no matter how i switch these coils, it keeps reappearing in the same cylinders. I pulled out the sparkplugs and they are dry so no oil causing misfire. I...

    ok so the other day, while I was at work, I went for lunch and when I got in and started the car, for the first time I heard this weird clicking noise, and noticed the steering wheel didnt move like it usually does. If I try to move it manually using the button on the left it still makes the...

    When installing a brand new vanos unit or (rebuilt unit) for a m54, is it all of just unscrewing it out and putting in the new one, or, is it more to it ? If I can remember, I asked one of my indy's, to do this and he said, you need to re adjust the time chain or something in the engine, can't...

    Good or bad Give or take I replaced them anyway, some say 40k interval but I think that is way too long esp on a 12 year old car. I drive her hard maybe once or twice a month. Meaning: doing over 120mph for a couple minutes. Didn't having any issues I just felt like changing them since it's...

    I just got some Brembo rotors, I think the specs says its (Min Th 20,4 mm) on the box. From searching online with its part number seems as tho people are using these for the front axle. Usually 3-series bimmers or e39's / z4's If I read correctly, e60's are: front: 30mm rear: 20mm Of...
