  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I’ve pretty much made up my mind to buy an E61 with a V8, but when test driving a 550i, I encountered some rather annoying behavior from the Sport Auto trasmission. In short, despite having it in manual mode, whenever my right foot requested any serious response from the engine, it immediately...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, My e39 520 auto runs brilliantly but after I put the foot down to use kick down, it'll accelerate fine until say 70/80mph then the revs die down a bit and the car/engine starts to shake. This only happens if I use the kick down at the very end of the throttle movement. No warning lights...

  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've been reading about the kickdown switch for e36's recently so i gave it a shot on my 325i. After a few runs, i noticed that my switch didnt seem to work. I read more about it and found out that if i cant "click" the switch with my finger, then the switch is broken... I tried this out and the...
