  8. 5 Series
    Ever since the advent of WDS Multilanguage (old name of WDS Reader) (Wiring System Diagram) for android, people have been asking for the same guide for the older BMW car range. I promised I would and it took a long time. The thing I don't like doing the most is making empty promises. The...
  9. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    TL;DR: a thief tried to steal my Catalytic Converter, damaged electronics somehow. BMW says JBE needs to be replaced, I bought a new one and it might need programming, but it might be a wire harness? Checked all fuses and replaced the battery to eliminate possible alternative causes. Included...

  15. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    So I bought my e34 around November 2020 and have always had this electrical issue but I’m not too good at electrical stuff alone. I’m also 19 and barely have the money to buy all the important things like a mAp reader. My window switches flicker all the time and only go down sometimes (same...

    About a week ago I went to start my 2007 335i and it had a surging idle, no throttle response and all of the error lights illuminated.
