  2. Parting Out
    I have a couple of spare VANOS gears from my 2000 540i. I picked up a couple of used gears before I did my timing guides and had them rebuilt so everything was ready to go when I started the job. $125.00+$13.00 for shipping. They need to be rebuilt. Do it yourself for dirt cheap or I used the...
  3. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi guys, Recently I have noticed that while driving at lower speeds the car keeps shifting gears or atleast thats how it seems. Although i have found no issues with putting the car from Prk to drive or while shifting gears during driving. Only at lower speeds ( 30km/h to 70km/h ) theres...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have a 2002 735i E65. It is over revving and not changing gears when it should. The revs are also surging up and down a bit around 60km / 3rd. I had the transmission fluid changed and it seemed to get better for like a week. But then it just started doing it again. I've just noticed every...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, So I was taking my e92 320d M Sport for a nice spirited Sunday drive down some country lanes earlier today when I noticed a clinking/whining/grinding noise in 6th gear, I was doing around 60 at the time and it seemed to be speed dependant as to how loud it got. Once I realised that the...

    I went to test drive a 2dr 2011 BMW 328 xdrive today and changing gears just did not feel smooth at all. Especially when switching the low gears, it felt like the car struggled to change the gear. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this car with a manual transmission and I wanted...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I know i need new synchronizers for gears 2 ad 4 and i wanted to know how much it would cost to replace. I talked to a mechanic and he said he would only do it if he replaced all the gears as well. Would i have to replace all of them or could i just replace the synchronizers? The transmission...

    Hello fellow bimmer enthusiasts Long story short with as much detail as possible; I went to an approved shop to get my throttle body replaced and had them do an inspection which they did free of charge actually :thumbup: Upon the several problems found, one thing which I want more...

  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    As I was driving around last night in my 2003 745Li Sport, I missed my turn and had to turn around at a median. I took the turn normally (nothing too fast) but noticed I underestimated the speeds of the oncoming traffic.. Not wanting to get rear ended, I gassed it. Within seconds I heard an...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Starting hearing a noise vibrating from the back as if my car had oversized tires on it, then a visible vibration occurred from 25-35mph and was consistent over 50mph. After driving to my mechanics house and he was shifting gears, you could hear the gears almost metal crunching and the...

    Hello, I just recently installed a brand new K&N Performance Air Intake in my automatic 2000 323i. While taking it for a test drive I noticed that when upshifting and downshifting, my car jerks when changing gears, and it never used to. I wasn't necessarily concerned because I thought that was...

    My sunroof was closed fine on my 2002 330xi, but today when I tried to move it back it moved only a few inches and then started making a clicking noise. Then when I tried to move it back forward, only one side closes correctly and the other seems to be stuck a little behind closing. Could one...

Having had parked up to do some shopping, i returned to find that I couldn't get my car out of the car parking space anymore, because the reverse gear would not work. How embarassing!!!!
