  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Just replaced my driver's door handle with what I thought was just the replacement for the "left" side, as the parts catalog didn't seem to list a separate "left front" and "left rear" item. However, a follow-up from the seller (getbmwparts.com) pointed out that there is in fact a different...

    Good evening. Set up this account solely for the purpose of this post. Short version of a longer story: I was ticketed for no front licence plate. I'm inclined to take a swing at having the law struck down on constitutional grounds. The upshot of my pitch is that the law requiring a front...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys, I always wondered what these things were called, I just call them flares or splitters. Is there a way to remove them? I wanted to paint them black.

    New and never used. I purchased these M5 Fender Liners for my car but never got around to installing them. Sitting in my garage for a while so they're a little dusty. These are for vehicles with cooling brake ducts. At the moment buying online these will run you about $289/ea ($578 total). I'm...

    I just posted a video, hopefully it can help a few people out: https://youtu.be/ZQeEut0-0M4 This is for an AWD 3 series, but it should be fairly applicable to the RWD as well, tool list, driving impressions etc in the video :thumbup:
  8. General BMW Questions
    BRAKE PADS WONT FIT AROUND ROTOR. I'm a little confused. I took off my pads and rotors and now putting it all back together, the pads will fit in the caliper but there's no room for the rotor to slide in there. I don't see anything different from when I removed them......? What am I missing? I'm...

    Hey guys, I live in California and my wonderful state has a law that says that you have to have plates in the front and rear of your car. I, as a new bimmer owner, love the look of my new car without a license plate in the front. Do you guys know of a loophole to this law? Do cops even care if...
  11. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    Guys -- I've been searching these forums, and the internet in general, for several days now. Everything I've read about and tried hasn't worked. So, I'm wondering if someone can help if I just ask the question: I'm trying to find the specific fuse or fuses in the front fuse panel of my X6 that...

Upgrade the rear bumper of your E92 or E93 to this E92 M-Tech Style Rear Bumper for a more aggressive rear end appearance. This E92 M-Tech Style Rear Bumper is constructed...
  13. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I recently noticed that my front camera only gets used when I select the birds-eye view. The front camera view does not come on when I press the camera button while I'm driving slowly forward, such as pulling into a parking spot. Any time I press the camera button OR the cameras automatically...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I am looking for some advice and tips related to the front struts on BMW E83 X3. I replaced the rear shocks, which were completely dead (the piston rod fell right into the shock). The rear was relatively easy, however the front struts are more intimidating. My biggest concern is removing the...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    hey gang, looking at buying an '02 540 M-package but is has some minor front bumper damage. The car has the headlight washers, and I've spent the last two hours looking for a new bumper with them to no avail. So, naturally, I gave up and turned to you guys. Any suggestions or links to websites...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    As part of my future projects for TAB I am looking for a suspension refresh. Having gone through the Best Links, the first 500 of 997 results with the search term "suspension", and all of BlueBee started threads, I don't think there is a definitive posting on the specific levels of front...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a problem with my front suspension being to low. The clearing between tire and wheel arch is about 1 inch lower that other 530XD I have found to compare with. Only the front differs, the rear has the same hight as compared cars. I have tried to check for 3rd party parts but it seems to be...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So my front hood emblem flew off while I was driving, I've been searching everywhere online but every front hood emblem that is being sold has 2 pins and on my hood there isn't a spot to put the 2 pins in. I thought I could get an adhesive kind but I have no idea where to find that online. I...
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So, after more than two months of searching for the right car with the right price, I found a 2011 e90 with 48k miles on it, for about CAD19,450. Yes, it's a good deal considering that it's loaded with nav and a nice set of 19" rims. Cars in great condition from inside and outside. Got the...
  20. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    Hey guys just purchased an M3...its a 2004 silver convertible. I got it with damage and just had few questions. 1) The rear head rest bars came out of the head rests...is there a way to reset them or put them down? 2) I owned and built a 2003 ZHP and know a lot of parts match the E46...
