    hi guys, new here. so I have a 2008 750Li and recently I have had a lot of different things done to my car.

    There is absolutely no difference in measured air flow in INPA when i connect and disconnect the MAF sensor, even went as far as testing the MAF being connected, but the whole sensor being taken OUT of the intake tube, which in my opinion should make the car go crazy - absolutely NO difference...

    Hi Guys, Keagan Here. I live in South Africa where we have been punished with receiving these N46N engines for the E90's and a few other models under 2.0 The way these engines were designed and the housing that stores the DME is such an issue because they are continually getting water damage...

    I haven't been able to solve the brake issue on the wifes X5. I have to either shoot it...or get it fixed. Every time I reach for the Desert Eagle my wife whacks the hell out of me. So...any good reasonable shops in central NC that want to take on the X5? The computer doesn't recognize the...

    Hello!!! I am new to this so please have some patience..... I own a 2004 X3 and it says on a read out from a scanner that the ECM is bad. I need some opinons on weather to buy used for under 300 or buy new for under 1700. I am leaning towards a new one. But I would like to know if any one out...

  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Would anyone be able to tell me what the current ECU and transmission software versions are for a 2005 BMW X3, M54 engine, 3.0i? I would like to know if there is a more current version of either due to the overly-sensitive throttle response. The car cannot maintain a steady speed (it always...

  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    New here needing answers I did a head gasket on my 1996 328is and I couldn't figure out the timing then the plugs for everything under the intake and I believe I fried my dme and ecu what models would be the same to find the right part or maybe I didn't fry them and I just messed up somewhere
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've been searching the forums but can't quite find an answer. First a little history, bought the 98 528i three years ago with a cracked head from overheating. I Replaced the head, all new cooling system, new plugs, new fuel pump, and rebuilt the vanos. The only issue I've had is after...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello, all. Firstly, I'm new here, so I may not be in the right place, but hopefully I'm close. I've got an early 2000s 323i at my garage where I work, and my boss has told me that I could have the engine and tranny out of it, since the person who was buying it blew a head gasket. Yes, I...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    The car seems to have a mind of its own since yesterday. Started with turning my stereo on and off and then totally dead (after market stereo, original nav and stereo died three years ago), then cruise control would not work, then RPM is randomly reduced, shifting is erratic had to switch to...

    Just picked up my first project car (I'm 18). I've always wanted a bmw and i jumped at the opportunity when i got one. Picked up a 1992 325is (e36 of course) for 700 dollars (174k) the other day.

  17. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I think I have a bad ECU/DME (Bosch part number 0261200404). My mechanic tells me that if I replace it with a used unit I will have to have a dealer reprogram the "new" unit for my car to start. Does anyone know for sure if this is true? Also: Must I disconnect the battery before changing the...

The problem im having is extreme lack of power it revs slow and has poor excelaration its kind of hard to explain but im assuming it has to do with the timing. i was told the belt might be a tooth off but i dont know if it would even run like that so my...

    I have a 1994 525i I bought for my son. The car wouldn't start one day after school, but started immediately for me the next day when I checked it. About 2 days later, I drove it, parked, and when I came back out it would not start (I also did not hear the fuel pump charge). I pulled the fuel...
