    I feel like this should be possible to make a plastic bezel from a 3d printer that could house the convertible glass windows in the cloth top models. any thoughts for or against?

  3. General BMW Questions
    Hello all! I recently was trying to install a FMIC on my 335i 08 and somehow bent a turbo outlet trying to remove a t clamp on the passenger side. A local shop quoted me $500 to replace the entire outlet, but is there any way to fix this without having to buy the part. For instance, would a...

    A common problem with our cars is the reversing sensors not working properly. Mine was disconnected by the previous owner because it had developed some problems, and probably found out dealer repair costs. Checking the sensors with my finger while they were working showed all sensors were...

    Hey guys. This problem has me baffled. I have a BMW 325i e46 2001 and it has a very rough idle, the revs drop then return to about 500-800rpm then drop again before it dies eventually(watch video). If I keep the pedal down it doesn't die. The issue is extremely bad first thing in the morning...

    Wanted to share my recent work regarding how to address a failing Light Kontrol/Control Module. Such a thread undoubtedly exists elsewhere, but here's my take. My symptoms were a headlight (driver side) that wasn't quite as bright white as the opposite. Also, when I turned on the high-beams, it...

    Hey all, Hoping I can get a little help/guidance. Recently purchased a CPO 2013 535i, everything is exactly what I was looking for except for a minor defect on the back of the passenger seat. There's a pretty significant squiggly line about 6 inches long protruding from the leather. Definitely...

    Hi guys, so yesterday I put my roof down with the button and it got 3/4 of the way down and it stopped! I've now but it up manually. Looking on here it looks like the motor is a goner and it is probably bathing in water. The latch still locks and unlocks but I've got nothing else. Is there...
