  1. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    If you have the diamond shaped key and it’s not unlocking or locking the car you may need to replace the internal battery. It normally charges as you drive the car but if the battery is worn out it won’t hold the charge as well. Here is a video showing you how to complete.

    Hello! I have a 2004 745li with a slow leak in the sun roof cassette (quoted at 6k to fix 🤢). I'm wondering if it's at all viable for me to take off the headliner and apply some type of sealant around the edges of the sunroof? If it is could anyone provide some tips on what kind to use and what...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all, I'm somewhat new to these forums and I'm having some problems with my e60 not starting. One morning I hopped in, turned the key, and the car wouldn't start. I have replaced the battery because the other one was dead. I have a diamond key and when I put it in and turn, cluster lights...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Fix at bottom: I took the face and screen from an LCI e92 gauge cluster, and put it on mine (2006 e90). The new screen is slightly higher resolution, which is nice, however after popping the needles back on, the speed indicator is loose. It wasn't in contact with the worm gear anymore (see...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)

Long story short, after a DIY oil pan replacement on my 325i, a bunch of codes popped up. 6 to be exact(p1726, p1056, p1030, p1554, p0344, and p1554) After firing the engine up for the first...
  10. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    So - after barely avoiding a physical altercation in the bank parking lot for negotiating the price (I'm not a confrontational person) and paying a substantial amount for a local shop to do a "pre-purchase inspection" (the report consisted of 28 pictures), I've rather impulsively bought an E46...

  15. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I just bought a 2004 645 Convertible with 55,000 miles. It is super clean and runs like a dream. But that only last so long without doing the little things that a 16 yr old car needs. Every time I buy a used car or truck I jack it up, slip underneath and start replacing anything that...

    I have a 2007 335i e92. My stock amplifier has water damage and I received the SOS error that has deprived me of my radio sound. I am in the process of cleaning the circuit board of the amp with Isopropyl Alcohol. However, I found this white goop on some of the parts and I am not sure if it is...

    Hello BMW Fam, I am working on my 550i and doing a total upgrade of almost everything I can into this vehicle. I already put a lot of money into it, and back in February (in Michigan) I had found myself sliding and going into a guardrail. Instead of totaling it, or spending a quoted $6k in...
