    Hi, I don't have much experience with cars but I just bought a 328d xdrive and was wondering how to make it sound better. It sounds kinda bad rn due to the diesel engine but I'm hoping I can do something to change that. Thanks

    Hi, i desperately need help. The volume button/knob on my stereo has stopped working. I can use the steering wheel controls to adjust the volume which has been fine untill now. Now the stereo decides to gradually turn itself down then BOOM!!! it comes on full volume scares the crap out of me and...

    Hello, so I have e53 2002 diesel and I noticed that the engine is quite loud, also when I am driving for a long time especially when going uphill for example in the countryside, after 1.5 hours of driving the oil pressure warning light comes on and it is flickering when pushing the gas pedal...
  4. General BMW Questions
    This happened to me yesterday. Check engine came on but the car was driving fine. about an hour lately exhaust started to get louder and louder by the minute. My dumbass didn't check the code before pouring a bottle of cata clean with almost an empty tank after thinking the cats were clogged. I...

    Got my 2013 X1 back from my mechanic after getting front brakes replaced (70k). Leaving the lot the suspension on the front right was crunchy/loud. Mechanic later diagnosed saying the strut bearing plate was to blame and had nothing to do with recent work. Has anyone else had this happen after...
  6. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    We have a BMW X1 2011 model, the front diff is very noisy!! BMW Brisbane have confirmed its caput. $5600 to replace is their offering :mad: Spoke to a diff specialist, he said that post 206 BMW moved to an inferior design, where they used roller bearings instead of tapered bearings. The roller...

    I***8217;ve recently bought a 550i because I decided it***8217;s now or never to finally own a V8. For the wave-of-torque style acceleration, and for the noise, of course. And I***8217;m very dissappointed with both. (Regarding acceleration, I started a related thread months ago (the thread...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So it all started after a pull 10 months ago. My serpentine belt ripped and went inside the crank seal. We all know the deal when this happens. I got all the pieces out BESIDES the ones stuck in the oil pick up tube (I forgot.) A few months after, I would notice my car would go into limp mode at...

    I get this extremely loud sound when turning the wheels : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G00m8NMfo5A Model is not XDrive. What could it be?
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    My car is making a VERY STRANGE noise when i let off the gas pedal e39 525dA). It is the exact same noise like in this video: https://youtu.be/F-3yUV112Lg I am struggling for 1 year so far to find out why the engine does this sound and unfortunately nobody could fix it yet. I hope someone can...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My e53 sounds like a jet engine or that it's supercharged, although that would be nice, it's not normal and the power isn't there. I suspect the cooling aux radiator fan to be the root cause. The fan doesn't start up with air con on but I've got voltage at the plug. The mains are 12v dc and the...

    Hi, I just got a used bmw 328i F30 from a dealer. The car has 29,000 miles and the car is like new. I didnt buy it from an authorised BMW dealer and after about a week I started to hear this humming noise in the front of the car, Ive heard guys saying that it can be the wheel bearing but I have...

    What are some good, loud mufflers i can stick onto my 04 325i???
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm looking to make my 2007 BMW 328xi louder. I have found a muffler on eBay that is much more wallet friendly than the whole BMW PE system. I was wondering if it's worth it to just buy the muffler and if it actually makes a difference in the sound of the exhaust even if its still connected to...
  15. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I stumbled across this video of the new 340i, can anyone confirm if it really sounds this beefy, or is this a performance exhaust? https://youtu.be/_KDCj9MEI9A?t=4s
  16. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    My car started making what sounds like a loud vacuum sound when running. It may also be described as a loud fan. The sound intensifies when accelerating and lessens when slowing. I believe that I have also lost some power when driving. The car runs fine otherwise but this seems to be...

    Hello, yesterday, my BMW 2003 330xi's Battery Light popped up during my drive home, that's all. Second day, Battedy Light still on, now fans turning on and off when key is in power gear, radio cutting out, lights dimming. When the car is on, radio cuts out, lights dim, LOUD popping sound (can't...

    So I'm new to the forum, and am just about to purchase a 2004 545i. I'd like to start making it mine right away. It's already got a muffler delete, but I'm looking to make it louder. What is the cheapest and easiest way to do that? No cats? Yes, I know it's illegal but I'm young and want to...

  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Okay so I have a 1998 540i and I washed the engine bay. After I washed the engine bay I started the car to warm up the bay and dry up all the water. It started normally and a few minutes later the auxillary fan came on and was running at full speed. It has been two days and it still runs at full...
