  1. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi, this is my first posting on this forum. I have been offered a 2003 z4 2.5 with about 120k miles on the clock. Car generally in good condition but the EPS doesnt work. The car is in a car sales lot and has been for 4 years as initially the alternator needed replacing (so the salesman sourced...

    My trunk won't lift, apparently because the hydraulic cylinders have leaked. Can the cylinders be re-charged, or do I need to replace them. Is re-charging or replacing the cylinders a DIY job?

    Hi. Totally new to this forum, but just became the proud owner of a 2013 F11 530d Xdrive with 75000km. So far very happy... However I just noticed a red spill (Hydraulic) on my garage floor originating from the rear Right side area of the car. Tried to go under the car, but unable to locate any...

    Well, thanks to the excellent documentation & discussions on this site I was able to complete part 1 of my top motor replacement. Got the top off. Unfortunately somebody had been in there before me as the motor seal was not factory. The reason I was digging in in the first place is that...

    My 2004 Z4 roof won't lock in its open position. It retracts back and forth no problem and it locks when I close it but when I want the roof down I have to get out and physically push the roof down to lock it down or else I get the flashing light on the switch. Help! I've seen plenty about the...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hello All. I am the original owner of a 2002 Z3. I have not had many problems with it - and it only has 22,000 miles on it. First problem was I needed to replace the battery about 2 years ago. After replacing the battery the radio code wouldn't work. I didn't worry about it for a while...

    Hi I'm a new member from Shediac NB Canada I just purchased a 2004 BMW Z4 2.5 convertible. I have a question about convertible top repairs. I removed the power convertible top. It would not raise or lower. The top would unlatch from the top of the windshield and the windows partially lower...
  9. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I've had an 07 650 for about 8 months and it is mostly a weekend driver since I have a 4 year old. Would really like to start with some mods soon as I'm jealous of several of the rides I've seen on this board. I've noticed that after my car sits for a while I hear a weird hydraulic noise like...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2000 BMW 323ci My convertible top stopped working a few month's back. With summer approaching I decided it's about time to see if I can fix it myself. When I begin to retract the top, the widows roll down, the top unlatches and I can hear the pump operating. But the top does not retract. I...
