    Hey Everyone, With nearly all forms of entertainment and eatery being shut down and my job going to minimum-manning, COVID has provided me an abundance of time. One can only check the oil and top-off the fluids so many times before the need to do maintenance takes hold. Alas, I found myself...
  2. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I plan on doing a complete steering flush as my steering turned completely stiff, and a steering wheel symbol popped up the dashboard. If possible can people guide me as to how to perform this job? My questions are: -Where can I find the bleeder valve? -If there is no specific valve, where...

    I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not these wheels would fit my 2001 BMW Z3 2.5i Roadster: Front; 17x8 ET40 Rear; 17x9.5 ET15 Center Hub Size; 72.56mm (says they come with hub-centric rings) They are SSR Type-C I'm lowered on BC coilovers and would not mind having to run...

    Hello and thanks in advance. I recently picked up a high mileage '99 323i, also my first BMW. It has some transmission issues that lead me to believe the fluid is low. - Occasionally reverse goes out if i am parked on a slope for a while. - Occasionally kicks me out of 5th gear when I'm...

    Recently noticed that she is herking and jerking going from first to second or back from send to first gear. I'm guessing it's the air filter. I park outside and with all this pollen this year, maybe that's it? My other guess is the fuel line needs to be flushed. I'd probably do both if it...

    Hey all, Im not a huge buff on cars or beamers but I've been having an occasional issue with my 09 328i. Sometimes when the car is stationary in drive for an extended amount of time the transmission will start to rev and the RPM begins to rise, no my foot is not on the gas and it's NOT in...

    Im going to be changing my thermostat and doing a coolant flush at the same time and i was wondering if anyone prefers any other type of coolant other than BMW brand coolant. Thanks (1995 BMW e36 325i)
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Been driving this car for about a month now and the car starts struggling/shaking going to 30mph. Took it to a shop to check it out and they charged me about $100 and they told me that the car hasn't had a oil change since 14,000 miles. She told me that was the main cause and that the Vanos was...

    I finally received my VMR v703s from modbargains and i absolutely love them! I got 18x9.5 et 22 rears and 18x8.5 et 35 fronts. Im running Michelin pilot super sports 265/35/r18 rear and 235/40/r18 front. There is absolutely no rubbing and i did have to modify anything. I couldn't be happier with...

    Hi guys, I just finished uploading a video I put together that highlights a power steering fluid replacement, without having to drain it from the steering rack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d83uXhoUcVk

    I have a 2011 BMW 335IS. The front tires are currently 225/35-19, and the rear tires are 255/30-19. Whats the widest size of tire I could put on for the wheel to look for flush with the car?
  13. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    Fresh out of the 240 game and I just got myself a bimmer for low. I'm trying to get that VIP look with this beautiful boat I just picked up. So what the crap options do I have with this thing?? I've seen coilover setups going for 3.5k but I'm not trying to spend a ridiculous amount (of...

    Hey guys I personally am a 3 series kind of guy but my friend has a pretty nice looking e39. The story is it's been stored for a long time because his mom has been sick and now she has passed away so he now has it. It's been sitting for a long time and I've only seen it a couple times mainly at...

    Hi guys, Just a quicky, some wanker put standard green coolant in my E46 a few weeks ago during a fluid change. I bought some nice tasty Gatorade looking BMW coolant and I'll be switching the crap out soon. My question is, would it be wise for me to fill the system up with just water after...

    Hello, I have a 96 E36 and had to replace the water pump. While taking the pump out, I found out that the plastic impeller was completely shattered. I got out as many pieces that I could but inside the port that leads to the engine I can feel another piece but its just out of my reach. Does any...

    This question has to be about the silliest ever asked in a Z3 forum, so I apologize ahead of time, but I can't figure it out. I am wondering how you can get a complete engine coolant flush by removing the engine coolant drain plug. The reason I ask is that the engine coolant drain plug is...
