    Hey guys, Been looking around on forums and website for a while now and am looking for some more conversation in this specific area. I have 2000 528iT with standard shocks and springs and no SLS. I am currently on all rears Style 66's with 245/45-R17 all around. My front shocks are the factory...

    So I have a 1997 528i with an m52 engine. If I let it sit for four hours or more, I have to cycle the key for about 7-second increments and crank it twice to get it to start. I replaced the fuel pump(not the entire assembly), fuel filter, and fuel pressure regulator, and tested the injectors...

    Need Help! 2003 525i heater/blower stays on even when vehicle is off. I had an issue with my blower for heat/AC not working and after going over the forums landed on replacing the blower motor resistor. Got a replacement part form Amazon that was very well recommended and made the switch...

    My 2000 528iA started having a slight idle surge between 500 and 900 RPM. I read up and decided to clean the ICV and throttle body. Now the issue is much worse. Will not go below 1100 RPM and once it’s warm, it surges between 1100 and 1600 RPM. Idle is steady at 950-1000 RPM when car is in...

    I have been lurking for a bit but it's time to introduce myself. I am from The Netherlands and I am a really happy owner of a 1998 E39 520i (M52B20 150HP 5 speed manual) which I bought in February 2022 for €2500 with just only 113.000 km on it! (It's also my first car!) Currently the car is my...

    I have a 1998 BMW E39 520i and my issue was that the front driver and passenger doors were not locking (not with the key button or with central locking button in the car) Somehow I fixed this with locking the driver side door with my key manually and now it's fine all doors lock with key button...

    My entire sunroof system is pretty much garbage, so I would like to replace it, but one of the cassettes i found online to buy was from a Wagon, and I have a sedan. Is it the same sunroof? Or is it different between the models?

    Ive been recently pushing my e540i pretty hard and it has just started to shake now while underload around 3k RPM and while sitting idle, but when under full throttle there is no shake. it's hard to capture on camera. but the car only has around 150k km on it, just wondering if its the fuel...

    170k miles on my M54 engine. I've been trying to clear the drive cycle on my 2003 530i for weeks now after fixing every single problem that triggered an SES. No misfires, I took care of air intake hoses in 2020. MPG is great. Cold starts are fine. O2 sensors replaced as well 2 years ago, with...

    It started its life with a M54B22 and the previous owner decided to change the bottom end (don't know about top end) with B30 parts (crank, rods, pistons). After driving it for 2 years famous oil pump nut struck and it spun a rod bearing. I decided to keep it as B30 as well. It had this mystery...

    So I found some headlights designed for a 1996-2000 5 series, but I have a 2002. What would I need to modify in order for them to work on my facelifted car? They aren't OEM pre-facelift headlights. I also have xenon bulbs, if that makes a difference. Thanks!

    Hello! Im having issues with my rear SLS on my E39 touring. Im not interested in bothering replacing all the parts associated with the SLS as it can get quite expensive, so I would like to swap to springs in the rear. I cant really find any good information about the procedure except some old...

    Hello all, it is tan interior alpine white exterior. I bought a full vavona wood kit from another e39 so it would go well with the tan as originally intended. I also bought an alpina front lip, m5 lip spoiler, a m5 rear diffuser. I had to get new brakes but before i did it was a rainy day and...

    Hello, I just purchased a 2000 528i sport with a 5 speed manual transmission, and the gas pedal feels very weird to me. I have an E36 318i 5 speed for comparison, and this transmission does not feel nearly as good as that one. The gas seems to have a lag when you press down, and is unpredictable...

    Ive got a 1998 528i with 56k miles (yes, that’s all so far!) and the passenger side seat is causing the seatbelt light to come on. Once a repairman reset it but it came back on shortly afterwards. He wasn’t sure the cause but someone here that knows more about cars than me (which I guarantee is...
