    Hey everyone, I'm working on my 2011 550i xDrive (N63 engine), and I have the Crankshaft - Camshaft correlation codes. The engine cranks but won't start. I have tried replacing all the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, I even redid the engine timing, following the steps laid out in ISTA, still...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum. I've been a lurker but I feel the need to post since I cannot find a resolution to my problem. N63TU with 93k miles. ARM Downpipes, JB4, and Heatsync Performance E30 tune I've been having this "rough" idle for months and I still cannot figure...

  4. X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    Hey guys, recently looking for a CPO 50i on a G05 or G07. I remember that old N63s are not so reliable due to the hot V design. But is the N63TU3 (N63B44M3) any better now after its third technical update? I have heard some good feedback from the owners of M550 which are having N63TU2, but not...
  5. F12 / F13 (2012 - 2018)
    Hi All, and thank you in advance for any help or advice. My 2012 650i has become a paperweight. Basically when put into drive the car accelerates to 5-10 mph and then it cuts power and stays at a crawl of 2-3 mph. Also not getting a reading of speed on my gauge cluster. When I go into reverse...

    Hello everybody, I am a previous owner of an E39 540i (2002) but I recently upgraded to an F13 650i (2012-n63). This is my first car I have modded so recently I have been reading a lot of forums to get ideas on what I should do and just other general knowledge. Last week I installed...
  7. General BMW Questions
    It only has 39k miles and never has been modified in any way. I don’t like how quiet the car is. I’m wondering what are some easy affordable options to make it sound better. Even though I’ve had a 335 and a 435 before this im new to modifying. This is the first car I really want to turn into a...
  8. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    I have an n63 with 130k on it @540hp (allegedly.. 650 for sure with the JB4 sticker on the window..) the turbos drink oil, sure.. the coolant lines, connectors and clamps needed replaced behind the alternator and in the valley. Door lock actuators needed replaced up front, needed coils and plugs...

    I know there are a variety of different ways to modify the N63 exhaust, but curious to know if an x-pipe / resonator delete is wothwhile. I currently have 2013 550 with AR high flow down pipes, didn’t want the issues associated with catless. High flow Sounds better but probably could use some...

    So my car is having an issue where after it warms up it can die at idle. Not always and the problem is much worse on hills. Things I know: Vacuum lines are ok - tested all of them Short term fuel trim is around +30% after it warms up Low pressure fuel pump gives inconsistent pressure (quickly...

    My Dad got an amazing deal on a 650i almost a year ago now and he soon figured out why. The car goes into limp mode any time you give it any throttle, limp mode goes away after you shut the car off and turn it back on but the check engine light stays. Codes are: P117e P11bd P16ac P00bf P141b...

    I have a 2011 550i that's smoking from a long idle. Told it was valve seals or could be the PCV valve needing replaced. Anyone know anyone in Denver to do the replacment without having to dump 10k into the service?
  17. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hoping for some insight here please! Had a catastrophic N63 failure 2 months back due to losing an oil cooler line while on the highway. Long story short, car towed to mechanic, new N63 long block swapped, and now mechanic doesn't know why there are about 80 something error codes when car...
  18. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So, I have a 2011 550i with the n63 engine. I got it for a reasonable price, there was a few problems with the engine. It was drinking oil, it had fried piston ring, the valve seals were leaking, and the turbo lines were leaking. So I decided the best option was to do an engine swap. Because the...
