    My E93 335i DRL is out. Is it worth upgrading to LED's? If so, which brand/ model. I've read through many posts but most are older posts. I know technology changes quickly.

We had some very heavy rain fall and drove through a small river, the water was to the bottom of the door, the car got stuck but I was able to reverse out of it When I got on dry land the engine worked fine, but none of the lights worked no head lights no dash lights no...

    My 2011 328 xdrive is having some crazy things going on! Wanted to see if any of you guys had this exact issue. The wife was driving and said that all of a sudden all of the lights on the dash flash off and on and the gauges are all moving up and down but the car is operating perfectly and...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    On my 2009 BMW 328I I noticed that the fog lights are a different color bulb than the xenon normal lights. Is is like that for a reason? Is it better with that build than a LED bulb?

    So the drivers side headlight went out on my 2008 e92 about a week ago. I want to replace the bulb myself rather than forking over my wallet to the dealer. The problem is that I can't figure out which guide is right for my car. I've seen the guides where you have to remove the wheel and replace...

    Hi All, I recently had my headlights replaced by a dealer after my car (2009 328i) was involved in an accident with a deer. The dealer replaced the left (passenger) side lights. (I am not sure if he also replaced the lights on the driver (right) side or not. He has not yet shared those details...

    Hey All, Long time BMW owner, first time poster. Title says most of it. I went away for Christmas break for 3 weeks and came back to find my computer (with the mileage, temp, etc.) blank (light still on, but blank). The car still works fine so I think nothing of it. Fast forward 2 days and I...

It has 3 halogen bulbs (2 for brake light, 1 for indicator). Ive already replaced my front halogen indicator in the headlights with...

    Hello! I am new here and this is my first time posting on this thread. I'm currently in the process of getting a family member's 335i 2008. It is complete stock and I think it is the sport edition. I want to black it out since it is a white car and to make it look a bit more sporty without...

    Hello I have a 2007 bmw 328i it was working and then the next day it wouldn't turn on. I think it's the battery but I'm not sure. When I turn it on I hear a click and the cluster lights go dim. Does it seem like the battery? I'm going to take it to get charged tomorrow so hopefully that is it...

    My passenger tail light won't work. Change bulbs fuses and checked relays and the issue with wires going to truck lid. All good. Turn Signal; brake light, reverse all work. Just the parking/driving light. Ordered new lights and they were a 8 prong but my car is 6 prong. How can I splice...

  18. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    2005 E85 Z4 3.0. 47000 miles. A brand new problem: multiple warning lights come on sometimes. It's not always the same lights. The RPMs drop and the car seems to stall momentarily. It then rights itself and on we go. No diagnostics have yet been run. Any ideas ???? Thanks
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey all, I'd like to start off by saying I am new to the forums because I'm new to BMW. I love my car and it had very few issues at the time of purchase. This one was caused by a dumb decision by myself capped off by a detailer who messed up (going to be talking to him next week in person)...
  20. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey Everyone, Just purchased a pre-owned 2010 X5 30i with only 43k miles in great condition. I've tried searching the forums for this but can't seem to find a definitive answer. I'm not one to normally DIY but figure, hey why not start trying! 1. Looking to replace the interior yellow...
