My greatest love-hate relationship with BMW comes with owning an older BMW.
My husband and I own a beautiful E38 740il with Dinan stage 3, lovingly named, HELGA. We've owned her for the past 4 years, and we've almost thought about selling her.
It's not because we don't love the car. It's not...

I knew I needed cam shaft sensor. Went for a quick drive and then going up a small hill the car shut off and wouldn’t come back on. I checked for codes and now it showed like 5 more codes. I then replaced the cam shaft sensor on the passenger side and it only started showing one code cam shaft...

purchased a mint e38 a few weeks back. The CD player isn’t working and rather then fixing it I am looking at trunk options for Bluetooth. Or even an entire new console system. GROM is saying nothing is compatible with the ‘98. Any suggestions???

Is your original BMW E38 key remote worn? Do you find it old fashioned? There are several opportunities for key remote upgrades. Personally I chose the Bentley style flip key remote.

Some of the most bizarre electrical issues can be put down to a failing ignition switch or a light control module, but in my experience these can be triggered by deliberately operating features.
I'm seeing something I can't think what to do with... The car starts normally (750 iL, so presumably...
