  1. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi I'm new to the BMW world, have been an Audi, Ford and Chevy owner for years, recently bought a 650i convertible for my wife an want to make some improvements and preventative maintenance. Car has rather low mileage at 73300 miles, I know I'm probably premature on some preventative maintenance...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Hi everyone - I have read that N55 engines have less carbon buildup than N54s. 2011 X3 uses little oil - drops a quart at about 7k miles, by time of oil change. With much time since N55 introduction, I would appreciate real life observations on whether these engines typically have carbon...

    This is my first post, i have an 2004 525i with the m54 and want to do the pcv delete with a catch can, i know your supposed to block off the dipstick vent tube, but would it be possible to put a valve on the catchcan drain and route it to the vent tube so i can drain when necessary? would this...

  5. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I did the delete/catch-can mod on my 2006 x3 after buying a ccv that was too cheap to snap/catch connectors (cheap-part lesson learned!). I used the old BMW fittings that are strong and snapped into place. Hose from valve to catch-can "in" with hose adapter and clamped all connections well...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone. After doing a lot of research into changing the CCV system to an oil catch can system, i cannot find which is the correct PCV valve i need to buy for my engine. I was originally told i needed to buy FRAM FV345 PCV valve, however, i just fitted that and took the car for a quick...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys and gals, When I serviced my DISA valve late last year, I noted a large amount oily debris in the intake manifold. I***8217;d like to solve the CCV nastiness and improve the overall service of the system by replacing the CCV with a catch can I can drain at each oil change. In doing so...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi Everyone! A little history (you can skip this and go to the solution if you want): I own an E39 with M54B30 engine since ~3 years. When I bought the car I***8217;ve replaced the whole CVV system and every gasket in the engine housing (except the cylinder head gasket) because oil was...
  9. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I was talking to a classmate at school a few days ago, and they were talking about their tuner cars and their upgrades (Evo VIII, Turbo eclipse, etc...), and they said that putting an oil catch can would solve the carbon build up problem in my e39 m5. Is there any truth to that? It seems if the...
