    I need to replace the timing chain and oil pump drive components in my son's 2013 328i with an N20. Does anyone have a complete set of the special tools required to do the job that they would like to rent or sell?

    Looking to build a fast n20. All recommendations are welcomed. Willing to spend the coin for reliability and speed on tap. Want at least 400Hp at wheels, but wouldn't mind more. Is pure a good brand? I saw a stage 2 turbo... I also saw a Dinan setup and some ECS stuff. Want the best possible...

    I'm torn between 2016 528xi and 2016 535xi, both xdrive. How much better is 535xi over 528xi? I've driven my friend's 528xi and it already blew me away ! (coming from a regular 2.2 na gas car) From what I've read & heard there are advantages to 535xi like: More power (62hp more) Inline 6...

    I recently had my first check engine light come on my 2012 528i N20, read the code on my EU sensor it was “1D24040: map thermostat activation; line disconnection” I then looked under my hood, Looked at what I thought to be the thermostat just from my experience on working on my e39 &e38 and I...

    Need help from my fellow community members! I occasionally get powertrain malfunction with FC 120308 due to low boost pressure. The code disappars once engine is turned off, but comes back when heavily accelarating the vehicle. There is also some flatter noise from exhaust when starting the...

  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am just curious if it would be possible to engine swap a 2008 E92 320i with the more modern turbo N20/B48 engine. I bought the 4 cylinder because it is my daily driver and don’t want to spend a ton on gasoline but it just lacks torque. I already got a tune but that did not really make a...

    So I’m looking at a 2013 528i xDrive with 91k miles, that a dude is letting go of for $4,000. The car doesn’t start, and he said he had a mechanic come over saying it’s the camshaft sensor. I checked it out myself, with a generic OBD reader and got codes P052B, P0012, P13C0, P054B, and P05CC...

    Hey all, new to the forum here and first post. I recently picked up a 2012 328i and it has the infamous wastegate rattle. Not just at idle/cold start but ALL the time. After googling and more googling I cannot find a straight answer. Can you buy just an upgraded wastegate and have it installed...

    Hello. A few days ago the engine light appeared and I checked the bimmerlink application and the following errors appeared. I erased the error and continued to ride the car. The car is moving normally and pulls well. Today when I was starting the car I noticed that the coldstart did not...

    I was driving down the road when I got a drivetrain malfunction error and a second later my whole car shut off my engine wouldn’t start and it started to shake before it turned off. Any idea what’s wrong? I’m thinking the timing guide or fuel pump. Wasn’t the timing guide fixed on the 2016 models?

    Hi All, dropped off my 2013 328i N26 early last week at the dealer for a minor idle/stutter issue after recently having the dread timing chain replacement service done. My advisor was out this week and really hasn't gotten any updates until today when another advisor called me to say "I just...

    Was driving recently, fuel pump went out. Know this is covered under factory warranty/recall. Took it to certified bmw service, was told after diagnostics that both the HPFP and the Fuel Pump control unit were bad. I don’t want to shell out near a grand to fix something that my not actually be...

  20. General BMW Questions
    Does anyone have any recent update on the class action lawsuit in progress? The last I have is from Nov 2018, part of which is posted at the bottom. I have a 2012 528i with a $12,500 estimate for engine replacement due to this, but my mileage is 74,000. The extended part warranty stops at 70k...
