  1. 3 Series Hybrid
    A couple of days ago my 2016 330e with 50,099 miles started making an odd noise while charging. It sounded like the normal fan/cooling system noise that I would hear and then started to make an odd noise, like a pump that was working a bit harder. It's relatively warm in my garage here in...

    Hi I just purchased a 530e used with only 40k miles on it. I fully charged the battery overnight. I took it out this morning for a 30 minute drive in eco-pro mode and the battery charge says it’s now at 0% is this normal. Feel like there is a problem, any help would be greatly appreciated to a...

    Hey all, I've noticed that there are quite a few 2017 330e hybrids available online that are priced lower than comparable 330i's. Are these vehicles to be avoided vs the 330i? Or is there just a flood from Tesla switchers? Or did tax breaks really take a toll on resell value? I'm mostly curious...
  4. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    Ive been doing some research on X6 Hybrid and there isn't too many resources on this particular model. I have option to purchase 2010 x6 Hybrid with 55miles on it. What should I watch out for ? Is there anything I should be aware of before I purchase the vehicle? I am planning on completing...

    "Power is nothing without control, right?" That's how Markus Flasch, the boss of BMW's M division responds to being asked why power increases have slowed down for the M division. The question was posed by Australia's WhichCar, which did the math and figured out that the M5's horsepower rating...

    Although the i8 wasn't the hardcore supercar some people wanted, it served the company well as a hybrid sports car. Now that it's dead, BMW reportedly wants to follow it up with another halo car, but this time one that will deliver more power. According to Car and Driver, the plug-in hybrid...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Good day all, I am experiencing the attached drivetrain fault. Initially it was only starter/ignition fault which came up once or twice and not its an active drivetrain fault. I have used ISTA+ and trying to figure out if it is my starter or control unit that need to be replaced. Based on...
  8. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    My wife's Lexus was totaled by a distracted driver and we want to get her in something larger. My mom has a 2001 X5 that she bought new that remains her daily driver today (granted it only has 90,000 miles) and I've always really liked BMW as a brand in terms of build quality and safety. That...

    I would consider myself rookie in car audio, though I have been upgrading car audio for years, I never really got them right. Where I am from, it is unlikely I get to audit speakers before buying them, it is always reading reviews online and hearing what others been telling between forums. I...
  10. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    I finally rented a i8 the other day. It was the best test drive of my life! The i8 had blue ADV1's and was lowered. It was a serious eye catcher! If anyone in the Los Angeles area wants to rent a i8 here's the link. It honestly was a simple process...
  11. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    My lease is coming up on my Lexus and I'm looking at the X5 35i and my friend who works at the dealership told me I should consider the 40e. They let me take one home tonight and I am really liking it, but still unsure about the whole plug in hybrid instead of having a traditional gasoline...

    Started my '13 ActiveHybrid 3 this morning and about 5 seconds after startup, I was greeted with a check engine light. Pulled the code with a scanner and there were 3 codes stored as P11CD, apparently BMW specific. I've searched high and low and not turned up anything. Anyone have any idea what...
  13. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    I haven't seen anything about this since the press back in August and am wondering if anyone has heard of a delivery time frame? Thanks.
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    OEM turbos on the e93 335i are singing death rattles, so it's time to upgrade. I did all the prerequisite searching the forum, but all the discussion I found on this topic was either outdated or not terribly thorough, so here goes again... Also- conversations on other forums quickly devolved...
  15. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi Everyone Anyone with an AH3 notice behavior where the car will not go back to electric? I have a commute where 10 miles is all downhill, all 20mph and on eco mode, the engine is off 95% of the time. In the past few weeks, I am noticing that the car is not switching off. I also notice this...

    The BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept 1:43 Scale Model. While the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept vehicle has earned much admiration among automotive experts, the miniature version of this advanced diesel hybrid is no less convincing with its sunroof for a view of the interior and...

    Pre-order my vehicle and took delivery however it was spent with the default hybrid tires (5 spoke, chrome and black) versus the multiple spoke rims (all silver). I was never informed and I saw no bulletin but the dealer said BMW Manu, delivered the car with the default rims because it was...

    http://www.bimmerfest.com//gallery/BMW-ActiveHybrid-5/medium/BMW-ActiveHybrid-5-006.jpg Just yesterday we saw pictures of the ActiveHybrid 3 taking laps at the Nürburgring and shortly after BMW made their official announcement of the ActiveHybrid 5. The latest hybrid blends BMW***8217;s...
  19. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I just leased my second BMW 7 series yesterday. I replaced my 08 750li w/sport pkg 20" wheels with an 2011 Active Hybrid 750li. I like everything but the wheels, which are 19's w/run flat tires 245/45r19 98y on front and 275/40r19 101y on rear. I am willing to take these off and store them until...
