    Hi everyone, first time posting here. This is a bit of a guide, but mainly a review of my experiences with the EvoX-R 2.0 projectors from retrofitlab.com. I don't want it to be too long, so I'll just highlight some interesting points that I wish I knew before buying. Feel free to ask any...

    Okay so my car is '01 525i, Automatic, sedan, M54B25. I love this car, bought it 4 years ago from an owner who neglected it for years. I've mended it and it runs heavenly now. There are no big issues with this car in the last couple of years that would leave me stranded on the side of the road...

    Hello! I’m thinking about changing my 3.5 with 4.4. Do you guys think that there is any sense? I’m feeling my car a little bit slow than I want. Is the 4.4 faster enough to make it worth replacing it? Greetings!

    As the title says. Just replaced the drivers door lock actuator today on my 2001 540i/6 because every time I unlocked the car, all the windows were going down. Now, after I replaced it, it is behaving strange. I CAN unlock the drivers door, all the other doors, as well as roll the windows...

    TL;DR at the end, I've been restoring my 2000 540i for a couple years now, a very slow process. The last major work I did was the timing chain guide rails, during which I was supposed to remove all sprockets from all four camshafts. I removed three easily but the bank 2 exhaust cam bolt is very...

    So my car has a knocking sound, it started maybe month or two ago, took it to the mechanic and he said that it's normal for these engines, however, it became louder overtime, and more agressive, at first it was like tapping rather than knocking, i think it is coming from the top-back of the...
