  1. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    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. šŸ”„ When I got home I had a quick look and there is a...

  3. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    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...

    I do drive a BMW 730LD F01 with active cruise control and collision alert options, but no visible sensor in fron of bumper.

    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...

    Hi everyone. I have a 2011 750Li with the M package and I would like to start some upgrades, but I'm having a difficult time finding where to order quality parts. I would really appreciate some advice. I would like to replace the stock kidney grill with a black grill. I also would like to...
  12. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    CNET on Cars Brian Cooley picks his top 5 cars of 2013 - so far - and the BMW 750Li makes the grade. Cooley praises the 7 series for its driving dynamics, saying "its a big car that gets smaller when you press it". For more on what makes the BMW 750Li a top car for 2013 watch the video. Skip...

    Hi All, I am a newbie to the 7 series, having graduated from the E60 after 165,000 great miles. Got a great deal on a dealer-owned 2012 740i with Dakota black interior, luxury seating which includes the seat cooling fans. Anyway, my question relates to the car surfaces leather/vinyl. I was...
  16. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I recently took delivery of a new 2012 750Lix. A ritual of sorts, is normally hardwiring a Valentine One into every new vehicle to provide many hours of "uninterrupted" motoring! To my dismay, it seemed that somehow the police had already targeted my sparkling new white car after driving off...
