    :thumbdwn: Check your coolant expansion tank regularly; if it goes low for no apparent reason, (like mine did twice), get the motor to a dealership & have them diagnose the EGR cooler "regardless" of whether you have had a notice letter or not! At the time, I hadn't had a letter, but I insisted...

    For years, both adult drivers in our family have owned BMWs. In fact, it was this forum that provided help with I bought my 328XI (as European Delivery) in 2010. While that car is still running fine, last week, our 2014 X1 caught fire while my spouse was driving home from work. The car had...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but I'm wondering if anyone knows anything, but weirdest thing happened driving back from vacation? I was driving on the motorway and got a warning light about tyre pressure. I pulled over and checked the tires r18 255/55. They all appeared fine, but likely the rear...
  6. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hey Guys, This forum has been tons of help, so I thought I'd try again. I have a 2003 BMW 745i. Originally part of the ecu harness was disassembled. I used a wiring diagram from an N62 LHD USA, hopefully the right one, to reassemble it and got it cranking. Then I found out it wasn't getting...

    As you guys probably already know from the title. My car 06 BMW 325i was on fire on Sunday around 2AM. It was CRAZY experience for me, waking up and seeing your car on fire. The police said they're still investigating for the causes. I still don't know what just happened. I noticed that few BMW...

    So, today my car caught on fire, but I was able to put it out before too much damage occurred. I have a 2001 BMW 530i just for the record. It seemed to come from the auxiliary fan, burned a hole through the vent as seen in the attached picture. I hear that there was a recall with certain models...

  12. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    So I had my alternator changed out by a shop which is a pretty straight forward job. I have a 2005 745li. I was at a stoplight and noticed some smoke coming from the engine. So I pulled over obviously and mind you there were no indicator lights flashing. I look under the hood and it seems as if...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Early New Years morning, I was driving my 1999 328i home when the high beams began to act erratically-flickering and such with no correlation to the switch on the steering column. About 30 seconds after I parked the car, and removed the key from the ignition, every single friggin light either...

    Wow, between the battery recall and (was it Consumer Reports?) the one that broke coming off the delivery truck at the start of a review, things sounded kind of bad for Fisker. That was before this happened: Fisker Karma blamed for Texas home fire You know, as much as I'd love to have the...

    Why you shouldn't carry flammable materials in a 328i's trunk... This sad story surfaced in my town... yesterday a guy hauling flammable roofing adhesive solvent in the trunk lost his '98 BMW to fire when it spilled and reached the battery. It was a total loss...

    I'm Canadian and I'm disgusted in what happened. I'm from Toronto who hosted the G20 last June and from what I saw the riots that sparked over loosing a hockey game were worse than the riots sparked over international politics, mind you I don't condone -any- type of demonstration like this...
