  1. 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...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm searched endlessly about this topic and so far I have found that "when buying such a large piece for my car, it should be OEM." However, I came across an MTech bumper being sold on Modbargains.com (LINK: http://www.modbargains.com/product.aspx?pf_id=mtech-front-bumper-e92-e93-er) and the...
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    So I finally picked up my 2011 X5 and the first thing I did was get rid of the CarMax display plate at the front and install a German number plate from the Bayern region. It came with a special mount designed to fit the factory bumper holes. Well, I installed it---and correctly---and it caused...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have an '07 e92 335i with 60k miles on it. Anyway, I've noticed that when I start up there is a rattle coming from the rear (butterfly flap) and occasionally the engine bay. However, when I rev it it doesn't hiss like the Wastegate rattles on YouTube but I feel like there's something wrong...
  5. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    2011 bmw 535i Xdrive f10 so I'm driving my car, and when i make a sharp left turn, you hear a loud "clunk!, clunk!, clunk!, clunk!" and when i turn sharp to the right, it does the same thing, but just not as bad. my mechanic called bmw, and turns out from the bmw dealer, with my mechanics...

  8. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    To start this off, I am new to the forum. I bought my bmw last March so I could use it as my summer beater. Well, that never happened because a trio of assholes stole it out of my driveway in May and wrecked it. I wouldn't say the damage was that bad, but it's bad enough to cause me a number of...

  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Just wondering, has anyone tried to put our ED European license plate to the front bumper, while having the TX plate in back of the car. Seems like it is illegal two times to me (not only not having TX license plate in front, but also puting different license plate). But, I'm curious if anyone...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I decided to check my front brake pads after hearing what sounded like metallic scraping. When I gave it a visual check the inside pads on both sides were worn much more than the outer pads. Does that mean my calipers are no good or simply sticking or did I do something wrong when I installed...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I recent put the H&R sport cup suspension setup on my 325is and bought new front (OEM) strut tower mounts to install at the same time. I also installed front strut reinforcement plates. I wanted to install a front strut tower brace, but the threads on the mounts aren't long enough to screw the...
  14. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, I have a problem with my 2001 Z3 3.0 Roadster. It started to make creaking, popping, squeaking, sound from the front suspension. This happens when I go over a speed bump (10 kph) or when I turn right; sometimes when I'm park and I turn the steering wheel right does that but only 2 or 3...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys its about time for new front rotors and pads. Any setups that ya'll recommend?
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, Im new to this forum, but definitely not new to the Bimmer world! I have a pair of front H&R Oe Sport coil springs, never used. I needed a new pair for the rear and had no use for the front pair so they can be yours for alot cheaper than buying the whole set of four if you only need...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have just acquired a 2001 Alpina B10 V8. :-D It has a mobile phone installation including cordless handset in the front centre arm rest. I just removed the aerial from the back windscreen, switched the phone to 'off' and disconnected the X400 connector for the phone system near the sat nav...
  18. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I HATE having to put the front plate on, but I'm going to. The front of the car looks so much cleaner without the front plate. But, as a criminal defense attorney who tells his clients "never give a cop a reason to pull you over," I'm breaking my own rule right now. I'm in Texas, where the...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I'm converting my 2000 528 bumper into an m5 one. I'm having a really hard time finding used parts like M5 body splash, pork chops, and tire wells. Anyone selling any or know where I can buy some??
  20. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi guys, I had a mechanic check out my 2003 3.0 Z4 and got told it needed the following; Left and right front upper shock absorber mounting (mounting bushes cracked, mount cracked) I'm having trouble identifying EXACTLY what parts are required as his description is a bit vague. I've looked at...
