    Hey guys. New here. Just had a random code pop up on the 535d. The car is a 2014 535dx. I have it tuned and emissions deleted. Im getting a P0278 code. Any ideas or advice? Everything I have looked up states a cylinder 6 injector fault. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello, I want to ask about your 530d power mods? How much kW you have. And how you got it. Now my 530d e60 have 215kw but only with chip and straight exhaust, however it's not enough for me. In the future I would like to have about more then 250 kW :D but I need to know how can I get it, maybe...

    I have a 2011 X535D with just over 91K and the check engine light has come on again. No Loss of power and everything seems okay. I've even checked the fuel cap. The bigger question is if I'm in for another big expense. At 80k the DEF sensor in the DEF tank failed and initial cost was $2300...

    Looking to spend my VW diesel-gate money on another diesel so I'm looking at finding a CPO 3 series diesel. Is there any year I should look for or avoid? Or any killer feature that was added in a certain year that's really great to have? I'd like to keep it low mileage to take advantage of the...

    I am thinking of getting an X5 35d and would like to get the opinion of those who have an X5 Diesel. Specifically, I would like to know about longer-term maintenance costs, noise level, emissions, and the driving experience. I test drove a diesel and liked the torque at low rpm.

    Hi Everyone, Stumbled upon this forum/website and it looks like a great place to learn about BMW and to get advice. I'm in no hurry as my current car (as boring as it is) has no problems and gets me from a to b, but I'm looking to lease a X5 3.5d within the next 12 months. Does anyone have any...

    I had my first service done to my 328d since getting it last November. The dealer put in 4 bottles of DEF according to the invoice. With only a little over 8k miles on the car that got me thinking if I should get an extra bottle and stow it in the truck just in case I am out and get the light...

    Just bought a certified pre-owned X5 diesel, 2012 with 35k miles. My wife drove it for 3 days (75 miles). She's cruising down the freeway yesterday and the engine malfunction light comes on. Fortunately she's right next to the dealership where we purchased it and limps in at reduced engine power...
