    Hi, I need to replace the wiper blades on my F11. Since I bought the car, there has been the problem that the windshield wipers just start wiping every now and then, even though the automatic is off. I think more often when it's hot outside.

    Ive had this whistle for a few months, and replaced the PCV valve a few weeks ago, because that was the only diagnosis I could find online. I had done the flame test and it indeed was sucking in, and post repair it does not suck in anymore. I understand this to be normal behavior. However...

  18. General BMW Questions
    I'm considering switching from run flats to non run flats on my F10, but only two of the tyres currently need replacing. Would having run flats on the front and non run flats on the rear cause any issues (e.g. handling) due to the different wall thickness?
  19. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I recently purchased a 2013 528ix and it's got these little bubbles under the fog lights. They seem to be damaged and I was wondering if this is a common occurrence and if anyone has any idea how to fix it at all? Thank you
  20. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I've tried to search but have had no luck. My 2015 F10 uses the inner headlamps (not fogs) when cornerning at night and I cannot figure out a way to code it out using Bimmercode. It's driving me insane. Is anyone aware of a fix/code to turn off the inner headlamp? Thanks!
