    Every BMW owner alive wants to keep their car looking its absolute best, but properly looking after your Bimmer’s cosmetics is more involved than it might seem at a glance.

    I currently have a 730d. Around 63k I started getting the drive train malfunction error and when driving there would be moments when the engine felt lumpy and unresponsive. for example you could be driving and when you put your foot down it would take longer than normal for the car to react...

    Trying to determine how to best clean and maintain my 2013 650ix and am having trouble determining what is real leather and what isn't.

    Hey folks, I like to try to keep the 6 as immaculate as possible. As it is the lightest color interior, this can sometimes be a challenge. Would love to hear any tips for cleaning the following: 1) Along the door sill. The plastic textured part of the sill gets dirt in it from people...

    Hey all, As a special "thank you" for his first ride in dad's 650 ix, my loving son went ahead and vomited while sitting in the front seat.

  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have not seen any posts about cleaning products and their results, so I figured why not start one? I recently bought my e36 in March and it needs some TLC :thumbup:... Still need to completely replace the seats, but for now I'm cleaning her up. I used Blue Magic Leather/Vinyl to clean some...
