  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I've recently found that my iDrive said that the engine oil level is too high, i've checked the dipstick and it is indeed a bit over max (around 3-4 mm). Now i drive the car only on short distances and mainly in the city and i've read that the DPF may be a cause for increased oil levels. I...

    Help please!! The lever by the headrest that allows my passenger seat to release and incline forward, thereby allowing people to get in and out, seems to be lifting up fine, but to no effect - Seat is stuck in the locked back position. All the electronic controls work fine and will move the...

    There is one wire that splits into two wires and connects to the little plastic housing connecter that plugs into the radiator level sensor for the expansion tank on the bottom. Normally there is some kind of wire casing but in this instance there is not since the car is used. I'm guessing...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi all I have noticed in the past that my oil level sensor was informing me that I had two much oil in my engine but when I checked it with the dipstick the oil level was correct. The other day my oil pressure warning light flashed so I checked my oil and to my horror the dipstick did not...

    Hello fellow bimmer fanatics. I have a '95 325i and I want to buy an intake of some sort. I have no knowledge of what to get though. I am wanting something in the 100-200 dollar range, and that really looks good and improves the performance. Also on a random note: my notifications center on my...

    Hi all, My first post here. I noticed for the past 2 weeks that my oil light comes on after I stop and turn off my car when I get home (yellow light) but it doesn't happen all the time. I can say maybe more when I drive faster (especially for uphills) but when I check the levels are fine and I...

    I recently purchased a 2000 528i with the xenon lights (1st BMW and loving it!!). Anyways, I've searched the forum and looked up realoem.com and haven't found an answer. My car is missing the front driver's level sensor (along with bracket to attach to control arm and frame). When I look at...

    Sorry in advance if this problem has been answered already. I did a quick search and found some similar problems, but they don't seem to be the same as mine. 1998 740iL 190k miles, recently purchased. Was driving fine until a few weeks ago. Problem 1: When I start the car in the morning, or...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm trying to see if my car is starting to burn oil after 106,000mi or if I was just a bit short at my last change. I did add a quart about 1000 miles ago, but I can't remember how many bars indicates the maximum/full level. Does the attached image show the oil level at max here, or is there...
  10. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Does the computer monitor the transmission fluid level on CCC-based Pre-LCI e70s or is there a manual way to check transmission fluid level? I would appreciate knowing how and under what conditions I should check transmission fluid level. Thanks in advance for any help...

    Hello all, I have been a long time reader but this is my first post. I have found this forum to be very helpful when I was making my decision on picking up my first BMW. About 8 months ago I picked up a fully loaded 2008 BMW X5 4.8i with Sports Package and Adaptive Drive but no 3rd Row Seat (I...

    Getting occasional yellow and red oil level indication on dash. Oil is fresh 0W-40 and right within dip stick marks. Will a faulty sensor lock out the engine from starting (even though oil is up to adequate level)? I don't want to get stranded. 2005 325 XiT, 72,000 miles. :dunno:
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I check the coolant level when the car is stone cold in the morning the level-measure-stick-thing-a-ma-bob is no where to be found for a minute. Then I hear the system de-pressurize and the level measure stick slowly rises up to the surface - above the expansion tank neck line. Which tells me...

    Hey all its me once again. I have a 2001 330 Ci which i love to death. However after coming back from a road trip to Sonora, the next day my low coolant level light decided to show its bright shiny face on my dash. I checked the level and filled it up. After about two weeks of this the...
