  1. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Guy. I'm searching for a good 645/650 convertible as my anticipated weekend/frequent drive with approx 15k miles per year. I love driving bimmers but not well versed on much under the hood. Having read through all (most?) of the threads on BMW E63/64 I am conflicted in 2 areas. 1. Oil Leak is...
  2. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    First time post! Just bought a 2008 z4 mc coupe which will be delivered next week....I've heard a lot re VANOS etc What would anyone suggest to do upon the service I will do immediately to get a baseline...Have a good INDY BMW guy on tap. I was going to do a basic oil / fluid change. Car has...
  3. 1 Series & 2 Series
    The time for oil change has arrived and my local mechanic said that he doesn't have castrol edge 5w-30. He had this made in germany oil called Adrenol 5w-30 synthetic. Is this oil a good option for my n52 128i ?
  4. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hey, i was wondering, why do i sometimes smell oil in my passenger cabin? Today i was going home from work and smell it twice. I hope it's nothing major, but it really drives me crazy. My car is e91, N47D20A.
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello guys, so I had some engine misfires on my E92 320i. Changed all 4 spark plugs and coils. Was alright for two days and then started misfiring again cylinder 1 and 4. Changed cylinder 4 and 1 with used injectors and misfire disappeared from cylinder 4. Tried swapping injectors from cylinder...
  6. F85 X5 M and F86 X6 M (2016 - Current)
    I know that most of the time this forum is like a ghost town, but I am hoping to get an answer about oil consumption in my 2016 F85 X5M. I just added a quart of oil a little over a month ago and today it's telling me to add another quart. There aren't any visible leaks but that's just what I can...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Should I change my 340i oil based off time? If I were to change it based off mileage I probably would have to change it every two years. I don't drive it very often and very far in the city (San Francisco). Also can I get suggestions on which synthetic I should use? I'm using the recommended...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone know if 635d cab has a way to top up the transmission oil from the engine compartment? Also where can I find workshop manual pages for this car? Thanks in anticipation, Paul

  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I recently purchased a 2007 530xi with 165k km on it, first thing I did was get the oil changed because I wasn’t sure exactly how to check the oil when I first purchased the vehicle due to there being no dipstick. Anyways, I got the shop to top off the car And as soon as I left the lot the I...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    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...
  12. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello everyone. I took my 2013 335xi to a reputable shop that specializes in German luxury cars to replace all sorts of oil gaskets. It wasn't my first time servicing my car there. This time after the repair the electronic oil measuring stops working. The guy tells me that it is 100% impossible...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi all - My 2013 335i just started to really eat oil. We did a road trip to washington DC from Florida about a month ago. On the trip, I threw a P301 and went to limp mode. I Ubered to BMW and got a new ignition coil and replaced it and the engine was happy again. No codes. Fast forward...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi all! My name is Santiago and I´m writing from URUGUAY, South America! I own a 1991 E30 325i CONVERTIBLE which I imported from USA to my country. I had to replace the battery, so I removed the old one and replaced with a new one. When I started the car, the "ENGINE OIL" light in the OBC...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, I have an E91 325d (similar to 330d with smaller turbo to those not familiar with this model). I've noticed that there is some oil leaking from around the bottom of the turbo (I tried to take a picture, but it is difficult to see). According to a mechanic this was due to a seal on the air...
  16. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi guys, How to replace this part? it's that U-shaped part. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_1FqD6SOfg Where to find instruction for that step in the link below? https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e70-x5-xdrive35d-sav_201202/ I search through youtube and came across this guy with similar...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys and gals. My 2006 525xi is having an issue. For the last year or so, about 1500 miles after an oil change, I'll be greeted with a low oil warning (oil level below minimum). At first I was super freaked out and rushed to get more oil thinking something would break if I didn't but now it...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Long story, short. I put too much oil in and now I'm at yellow (at least it's not red) saying too much oil. Big concern or not? Just keep it under a hundred and wait for it to burn off. Wanted to go to the beach today now it looks like I'm gonna be under the car. Long Story, long. Happen to...

  19. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I have a 328i F30 with N20 engine - 14 plate. Bought it in Aug'17 with 55k miles on clock, I've now done just short of 60K miles. Not had any issues with it until Apr '18 when it went into limp mode after going round a sharp up-hill bend. Stopped the car, restarted, drivetrain warning cleared...
