    Hi, my friend is in search for used BMW g30 manual, but only manuals are 2.0D version, not even one 3.0D. Is it even possible to manual swap 3.0 motor from automatic to manual or easier to engine swap 3.0 motor to 2.0 manual version of car? How costly it would be? Thanks

    I have a 2014 550i with 90k miles. Should I use semi-synthetic oil now? Non-synthetic oil can cause engine sludge, but if I use top-tier gasoline, will this offset the sludge build up and be the best way to extend the life of my vehicle? two part question here-

    Hi, so far my 645 coupe (2004) runs very good. Prior to this i only drove e36 and e46 for some years. One thing that annoys me is that when i shut the engine off in my 645 it literally turns off very abruptly. Electronics shut down fast and the steering wheel moves back (a bit clunky if you...

  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I think this question may have been hit in a older post but I’m not entirely sure. I was told that the stock airboxes on our cars basically outclass any aftermarket CAI set up. So I recently got a Spectre Panel filter and it works like a charm feels more perky in Drive and Sport mode as well as...

    I have a 2013 535i xdrive that just recently bmw saw that apparently I “hit” something but I didn’t and they found that there must have been some sort of impact to the bottom of the vehicle causing the drive shaft to break off and puncture the oil pan. This lead to oil leaking out and caused the...

    Hello all I saw a few threads about ECUs but none in particular with the E60 and I was wondering will a Reset help it relearn with its High flow panel filter and Muffler delete only.
