    I'm trying to identify the part(s) I need for my 2011 X3 35i. It was purchased used, so I'm not sure of history - I'm assuming the driver's door was replaced at some point with that of a different year or trim level. Mine is missing the chrome trim piece at the bottom of the driver's door. I...

    I'm doing regular maintenance on our F25 and its about time to do the rear brakes. I'm planning on replacing the pads and discs, and did the rounds on YouTube videos (Thanks BAV Auto!) and went through the steps in ISTA+. Everything matched up except for torque specs. According to ISTA+, the...

    Have always liked to take on reasonably challenging jobs - especially with online procedure references etc. - but this time, I decided to have a shop do a front wheel bearing replacement on my 2013 F25. I drove it briefly the day after the repair, and thought I still heard something odd, but...

    I just swapped the chrome grills for dual slat glossy black grills. What do you think? I must say it was a royal pain to get the grills out.... A royal pain! Before: After:

    I read in a few places but it wasn't clear that you could "tether" your car to a mobile phone. Is it possible for your BMW to connect to your phone for internet access? Someone said it's possible so that you could get the RTTI info for example. Can anyone shed some light? For reference I have a...

    I just ordered a M Sport Steering Wheel, came to realization that I would need to purchase the airbag as well. Being that the Non-M Sport Airbag doesn't fit. As long as I get the new airbag, is it basically plug and play or do I need to do coding/get new accessory buttons as well?

    Hello fellow enthusiasts, I recently bought a damaged 2013 BMW X3 with standard xenon headlights. after some consideration I decided to give the car a LCI treatment. The older light control modules didn’t fit in the new unit, so I replaced them. Now I’m struggling to get them properly coded...

    Hi, guys, I'm trying to find psdzdata good for my vehicle (I-step: F025-17-03-508) but I cannot find one. I tried really hard to find any clue in the threads, and I'm kinda lost. I could only get the recent versions which do not support mine. I'd appreciate any help.

    I bought my car a couple of weeks ago and noticed that the inner tail lights (the one on the lift gate) does not light up when the headlights are on. You can see a bulb plugged in looking through the housing. I opened it up and saw the 2 bulbs but it doesn't look like there was a connection to...

    Hi, Has anyone replaced the rubber tailgate seal on a F25 X3 ? I cannot find any videos or instructions online. Does the lower sill have to be unscrewed and inclipped or can the seal be pulled out and new one installed without unscrewing and unclipped? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
