    So I noticed that never happens on cold engine, only after like 30-40km done. When I accelerate or drive steady its fine, but when I slow down still on the same gear ( for example I drive on 4th gear and the engine speed is slowing from 2500 to 2000-1500 the drivetrain malfunction is popping...

    Purchased this a 2014 335xi for under half the market value due to these disclosed issues. I’ve lost all my hair giving it a go at repair. I am new to working on BMWs and have learned so much already. The seller said these issues appeared mostly around the same time so I hoped that it was a...

    So one day this light comes up on my dash saying "Left low beam malfunction". After all the research I've done, and finished with what I read about; my drivers side low beam isn't working.

    I installed the AVIN display and not only does it look better than the 6.5in, but the touchscreen is a nice addition. I also added the CarPlay dongle and it works decently well. There are some slight latency issues after it has been used for a short while. It seems to be something an updated...

    Has anyone had this awful experience? I was driving along as usual when out of the blue I got a "Drivetrain Malfunction" error.
