    Well folks, I recently got my F32 (2013) serviced at a local garage. Just standard oil change and filter change. When I got it back everything seemed normal until my car comes to operating temperature and I get a warning to refil Engine oil by 1ltr. The I drive measurement throws the same...

    Hey guys, I changed my oil for the first time today. The recommended oil top up was 7.3L but to be safe I've only added 7L while the car is up on a ramp. After dropping the car to flat ground level, I wanted to add the 0.3L, But my Idrive and Dipstick is NOT the same. My dipstick is showing...

    Hi, Got a SH x3 3.0i from 2005. The dipstick apparently broke and the previous owner had replaced it with a shorter one. Does anyone has a clue about the actual length of an original dipstick of the 3 liter engine (M54B30). Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi All, 1. When I parked up last night and switched the egnition off the oil light came on for 30-50seconds. I thought nothing of it as I had engine oil to top up the next morning.

    While perusing the forums and the Bentley manual, I was surprised to find references to the auto transmissions possibly being made by General Motors? Is this possible? Real OEM lists the unit as A4S-310R. I should have been given a clue that this IS a possibility when the Bentley manual...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Since there is no dipstick, I don't check my oil so I have no reason to open my hood. It feels really strange since I NEVER open it, whereas I used to open my hood at least monthly on all of my other cars. I am wondering if there is any valid reason to look under my hood (i.e, something to...

    Am sure this probably came up way before I joined but how the heck do you check the oil when there is no dipstick? The "oil" light on my 07' came on the other day and since it's still under warranty I stopped in at the dealers. Was about 1/2 way between changes and they told me it was normal to...
