    Hi all, Former BMW Product Concierge here, and I'm curious to what have you all experienced with drive 7.0. When it first came out, I'll be the first to admit that I hated it - if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? I was used to idrive 6, it was easy as pie and a simple, flowing layout, and...

    I'm looking to repair the ABS module in my BMW. I'm wondering how to get it open to get access to the circuit board. I've heard that sometimes some components on the circuit board get loose and that I could re-solder them back and avoid having to replace the module. How would I do this?

    I have just replaced the battery to a 1998 BMW 740iL. After the battery was replaced, the car was able to go backwards and forwards for a short distance (everything started up fine). After a few hours in park, the car will not start. The lights will turn on to full brightness and the voltage is...

    I'd really appreciate any advice on what is wrong with my 1996 E39 520i 1. Every so often, usually when in the sun, I'll lock my car, walk away, and all of a sudden the alarm starts ringing within 1min. It'll ring for 30 seconds, stop, then ring again for another 30 seconds, then stop for good...

    HELP!! I have a 2007 530i. The car has been running and starting perfectly fine, on Friday after driving and trying to restart it, the car would not start.

    My dashboard light as well as many of my interior electric uses (stereo, clock etc.) doesnt seem to work anymore. I checked the fuses and replaces some of them but still doesnt seem to work? would it be bad wiring?
