  2. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    Hey gang, As stated in the title, I just got my first BMW. I bought her used with 61,000 miles on her, only two previous owners - neither of whom wrecked her, and both of whom performed her regularly-scheduled maintenance - and got her for a steal, to boot. That said, I'd like to make sure I'm...

  4. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys. So, in a week I will be traveling to purchase my first e30. The dude is selling it because him and his fiance want to put a down payment on a house... It's a 1986 alpine white 325e I believe, with 150k miles and it's a manual. Thing looks absolutely pristine. The only thing I've seen...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 04 BMW 525i and the oil hasn't been changed since 14k. Took it to a shop and they told me that my Vanos was very sticking/ratchety. They told me that I would need a Engine Oil Flush w/Amsoil Engine Cleaner and BG fuel system cleaner also a oil/filter/synthetic lube change for $200 but I...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, after lurking for quite a few years and finally being financially stable to dump my ex-pizza delivery acura, I've been looking at getting an e39 540i/6 as my big comfy cross country commuter/highway mile muncher. I'm pretty dead set on it as my criteria were, comfortable, standard trans...
  8. Classic Bimmers
    Howdy, I have recently come across an opportunity to buy a 1974 3.0 CS for about $20k. I am seriously considering this purchase, but I have a LOT of questions, and figured this would be the place. Here we go: What is the price range for these models in decent condition? What do I need to look...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Great forum - been lurking for months since I picked up a used '06 X5~ I hope this is the right forum area. Sold my modded '13 JK Wrangler for something a little more corporate, so far I've been very impressed with the performance, this is my first BMW. I've worked on Modern Japanese/Vintage...
  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello folks. I have been in the X3 forums for the past 2.8 years, and before that the X5's, and then even before that the E90 and E39 forums as well. So as I'm not new to Bimmerfest and I would like to cordially introduce myself in the F30/34 forums. SO coming off my X3 I wanted something new...
  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Nine days ago bought my first 7 series. Before had a 96 328, and a 2000 323. Made the big jump after pricing 5's and &'s kept popping up in the price range. Always had Alpine White before, wanted it this time, but a Black Beauty caught my eye. More bells and whistles than I have ever had, so...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Bimmerfest E39 forum experts advise the newbie how to ask questions & how to respond The way a nascent thread is evolving today prompted me to create this thread so that it can be referred to in the future: a) Filled with generic advice from the experts who are trying to help, and, b) So that...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My son was driving on highway when he heard a strange noise(pop). He pulled into a parking spot and when he tried to back up, the engine revved but the car would not engage. He tried neutral and the wheels seemed locked up. After a fiasco with a tow truck, the repair shop determined the...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So I bought an '03 BMW 325xi. YEA! I've always like how they look and they have quite the reputation. I went in knowing that the head gasket was blown, but having a family of mechanics I was encouraged that this wasn't the end and it could be fixed. Reading these forums has me thinking quite the...

  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Alright, this has probably been asked before, but bare with me I'm a newbie. I recently got a 2007 328xi and loving it!!! Only thing I wish I could upgrade would be the exhuast. Only problem is that I don't have 2,000$. I was thinking about exhaust tips, but I'm not sure how they will look cause...

    Hi fellow Bimmerfest viewers/posters/owners! Did a ton of research on vehicles recently and couldn't pass up a great deal on an AW E92 M3! I am a long time reader of these forums and the sister forums involved in the BMW community, but first time actually mustering the courage to post. :p...
