    After many months of working without issue, I suddenly seem to have an E-Sys vs. Java problem. E-Sys fails to start when operated with the jre version that it comes with. You get the splash screen, it does the logs, it now even gets to main screen, and then bails out without error as soon as...

    Hello, I had hit a lady from behind going maybe 3 mph. There is virtually no damage other then the taillights cracked. I told her I would pay privately out of pocket, she agreed. She just got a quote back for $2600. I know this can not be correct. Can someone with looking at these photos, be...

    My wife was sitting at a red light and was run into from behind in her 2014 X5 by a Subaru at over 50mph. The other driver and my wife seem fine. When the police came they were surprised that in the guys Subaru, all his airbags had deployed. None of my wife's airbags deployed, but her seat...

    Hi, I currently drive a 528i and recently started looking at upgrading to a 540i. I came across 2003 540i m sport, and it seemed pretty decent considering the coolant system was replaced, along with other common 540i problems that were fixed. BUT, after finding the carproof, it displays a...

    Hello there friends, I made the stupid decision of lending my friend my car and they come back telling me they got into an accident. Luckily for me the person is doing well off so they will cover all the costs, and the person they crashed into was their friends car (BMW x5 M) and were super...

Further updated the maps with 2014, 2015 version but still the crashing and popup issue remains. The dealers couldn't understand or...

    Here is what happened last night and I felt the need to send this to the company because I'm sure it's rare for a company to receive POSITIVE e-mails!

    I've had a few pm's regarding the demise of my i8, so I thought I'd post a quick synopsis of what happened now that the dust has settled. Yes, the driver was my teenaged son. No, neither drugs nor alcohol were involved. What was involved was an unfamiliar dark country road, an unmarked gate...

    An incident on the Autobahn looks to have totaled, or close to it, a Crystal White BMW i8. Apparently an Audi A3 and the i8 had an altercation on the Autobahn between Chemnitz and Stollberg, leaving the i8 with severe front end damage. The airbags in the i8 were deployed and the cars safety...

    So, I was rear ended pretty bad tonight. Other driver is insured I believe. I filed a police report and started a claim with the insurance company. I'm just wondering what kind of damage this seems to involve? Will this car be considered totaled? Any input is appreciated as this is my first car...

    She was beautiful. She had only 92,000 miles, in Sapphire Black over black sport seats. She had never been in a major accident. She ran like the thoroughbred she was. I named her Seabiscuit. I picked her up from the dealer on Friday. Her Style 71 wheels glinted in the bright SoCal sun. That...

    I just had the unfortunate experience of having a crash with body damage to my Active E. Thankfully it was low speed and no one was injured in the crash and the Ford Fusion on the other end of the crash only had minimal bumper issues. But my Active E has body panel damage, and the BMW dealer...

    It runs fine on starter fluid but that may get expensive... :o No pulse on the fuel injectors. Crank sensor looks fine and the crash damage (see below) was no where near the sensor (LF hit). Service engine light now comes on after many attempts to start but no codes are present on the...

    Yesterday a Mercedes G500 decided to crash into the back passenger side of my beloved E39 and I am wondering what things I should make sure to have the body shop and mechanic take a look at. The damage is immediately behind the rear wheel and part of the fender is crushed in. There is a nice...
