    Tried to do smog check today and I was told by technicians that my car would fail smog check because car battery died and I have not driven enough miles since then. They were not able to advise me how much more miles exactly I would need to drive, but they said around 500 or in some cases even...

    I just bought this new M40i 1 week ago. Only 75 miles on it. But in i-drive system the Service Required light keep showing up. When I checked it, the required service is emission inspection.

    Hi Ever since I've heard about the BMW diesel-gate from the news, I've been keeping an eye on the topic since I'm affected with my 2012 X5 35D. Now it's been a little more than a month passed and I have not heard a beep from BMW USA. I've sent inquires to them on this topic and got some...

    Hi, Took car into mechanic to get my inspection done. Only to find that my car wasn't ready for emissions testing which is required here in New York. Mechanic told me to drive it a couple miles and come back. I drove about 250 miles only to have the service engine light come on. Code p140A...

    Hello, I drive BMW 2000 328i With 220k miles. About a month ago I got code P0420, dealer wanted 3k for repairs, however he said not to waste money on it because it also has an oil leak and high mileage. Anyways, i poured Lacquer Thinner in the fuel tank, to try out and clean the CAT. I drove...
