    Hello Everyone, My name is Brent Williams. I used to own 4 automotive repair shops and taught Advanced Electronic engine controls/diagnostics at DMACC, so feel free to be as advanced as you like in communications. :) I have a 2008 BMW 750Li. I live in Iowa and this winter has been quite cold...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I'm thinking about either installing an x pipe in place of the resonators, or QTP cutouts. Does anyone know the exhaust piping size on the E65 745i? If you look at this image, I'm specifically referring to the two pipes running between the two sets of resonators.

    :banghead: I CANNOT catch the springs and need help -- Should I be able to use a COMMON STRAIGHT screwdriver?? or, MUST it be curved?? :dunno: I'm using straight tools right now, trying to catch anything in there that might be the spring retainer. Based on probing with straight tools...

    Hi everyone I have a 06 750i. I been trying to find a video on youtube for the Vanos Seal replacement, but I had no luck. I found some thread on here regarding this job but it's not really detailed. Is there a good tutorial somewhere for this job? Thank you guys

    I could really use some help on this. My mechanic is stumped, I am running out of money, and there is no clear path forwards. I have an e65 BMW Alpina B7 with about 90,000 miles. As I understand, it has a similar ZF transmission to the other E65 745i and 750i cars, but has a heavier duty...

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a 2005 730d and the PDC system never worked. I get the usual PDC error on the screen with the warning lights. When reading the error codes, I get 9E3B which from googling, normally means the module is done. So I replaced the module, but things are still not...

    Finally parted with my last of 3 e38s and a bit overwhelmed by the technology in my newly purchased e66, so I figure I'll start with a hopefully easy repair and work my way up to the usual suspects (Valve Stem Seals, Mechotronic, etc). Today's problem: Driver side lumbar. I hear the motor...

    I had this issue when I got the car last July, but it went away as the weather started getting colder. Now that its getting warmer again, the issue is back. Basically, the A/C will come on by itself, and wont turn off. The fan speed also fluctuates by itself. Sometimes it'll turn off after...

    hello my 2006 E65 automatic boot has been playing up. it started by not working at all. i have checked the fuse and its ok. I've also checked the fluid level and it looks good. I've changed the control unit and now the boot will close by the button in the boot and by the fob. I've checked the...

    I have done some coding of my E65 car in the past such as allowing the FOB to open/close windows and trunk and even added the digital speedometer to the display. I was trying to remove the legal disclaimer warning, but didn't find the 'TOUT_LEGALDISCLAIMER' keyword that I seen needs to be...

    Greetings, I have a pre 03 2005 BMW 745li E65 and looking at adding either the BWM factory iPod adaptor (65110439425) or the Dension Gateway lite. I am just wondering your opinions on them for which one is better. I don't want to go with the FM hack, would rather just swap out the 6 Disc CD...
  15. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Is anyone running 285/30/22 on the rear? I'm looking to get a staggered set of rims (22x9 and 22x10.5), and want to do 265/30/22 on the front and 285/30/22 rear. Will that affect anything? I came across a thread that suggested either doing 295/25 rear or 265/30 all round, however, when I compare...

    The right side of my audio system has a habit of cutting out and won't reset till the engine is restarted. It seems to be triggered by a volume setting. ie if I turn it up it trips out. Any ideas about what could be the problem?

  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Occasionally, especially on colder days, the car would misfire right on startup. The RPMs fluctuate up and down, and it gives me a "Engine Malfunction" error and says in the idrive that damage to the catalytic converter is possible. If I shut the engine off and restart it after about 30 seconds...
