  1. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    Hi everyone! I don't know too much about turbo engines and am considering purchasing a series 7 1980 (E23) with a Callaway turbo that needs to be rebuilt. Would it be safe to continue driving if I do not plan to drive it too fast? I have seen a lot of warnings about not continuing to drive the...
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi I’m new in this community but I couldn’t find anything about my problem. A warning light for “Stabilisation failure” and then “imminent wipers failure” came up the screen. Unable to turn wipers off, indicators are not working - only hazard lights. Any ideas of what’s causing it - has...
  3. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Picked up a lovely 316 Ti E46 2004 for a song and have gradually been working on it to bring it back to where it should be. Remote keys don't work and I presume its the coils inside but thought I'd just check the central locking fuses first (if it was going to be a simple fix then woop-de-doo)...

    The Flat Tyre Monitor (RPA) failure just appeared on my iDrive screen this morning when I started the car. :cry: I read the code with ISTA+ / Rheingold and read the code "48070C" with a description of "Tyre failure indicator: Data implausible." I have read posts about changing the ABS...

    Hello Bimmer enthusiasts, I recently bought a cheap beat up 335i that I plan to keep for a very long time. I originally thought it was going to be a quick fix with the Crankshaft position code but little did I know about the cold start engine noise. When I start the car cold the RPMs fluctuate...
