  1. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hi all, I have a 2012 750i xdrive. The bushing on the front control arm is warned and making squeaky noise when going over bumps. Dealers wanted $5800 US to replace the leaking bushings. I bought the control arm assembly from FCP Euro and try to do it myself. I got the bushings side off and...

    So I am aware the title isn't great but here we are. I have run into a problem on my controller where the down arrow will still bring the modes down but the up has completely stopped working. So far I checked to see if anything was jammed by taking the button cover off and there was nothing. Im...

    Okay I'm gonna keep this short, I was driving all day and the car started to shift a little harder more and more throughout the day, as I was trying to get home, I lost essentially all movement. When I came to a stop I could hear a sort of winding noise coming from the trans and I would barely...

    I have a 2011 750i and it is showing that the camshaft position sensor is over-retarded on cold starts and normal driving. Should I just replace the sensors and hope for the best or is it more serious than thatthat? Also I would like to know where they might be and which ones to get. Thanks

    Hello everyone, My N63B44A could not be used anymore and needs to be changed. My car (BMW F02 2009) is out of warranty so changing by paying a small part of the price will no longer be applied. Buying the same second-hand engine could be the same disaster, so I am looking for alternatives. I...

    I’ve got a 2014 740i (f01) and the drivers door seems to be turning white. I’m not sure the material, it is the cheap grainy stuff bmw uses. I was wondering what this could be caused by, and is there a fix??

    I noticed that when I went to turn on my heated seat on the drivers side it would flash on then go off. Eventually it would stay on. Then I noticed it getting really hot on the side of the backrest, so much so I felt it through my coat burning. 🔥 When I got home I had a quick look and there is a...

    Hello, I have noticed my 730LD is shifting hard between 1-2 and then 2-3 when the engine is cold. When the engine warms up the gear shifting gets smoother. There are no lights on the dash or warnings at all. The car is a 2010 year and has done 63K miles. I have been told it could be the...

    Hello My 2009 F01 has twice put itself into Neutral while on the motorway, you cannot do anything but glide to a stop. It won't let you put it into park, reverse but I managed to get it into 2nd (or 3rd) but then it stays in that to limp home. If I turn the car completely off, then back on...

    My 2009 BMW 7 series F01 boot refuses to close by the button on the lid, if I press the external lid button it will power down, but the catch will not soft close it. Thinking it was a software glitch, I have reset the computer, which has had no affect. Even used the E sys coding to get the...
