  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So today I bought my first E90. It's a 2008 328i wagon that cosmetically is decent. The engines a different story. I paid $900 for it so I didn't have high expectations for the internals and am fine with replacing the engine and transmission. It has the infamous oil filter mount leak that made...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey y’all. I am new to this form and here to find out some information. Let me tell you about my story. I was looking a e46 (330i or 330ci) and found this very mint 330i. I live in Clermont and it was in Miami, 4+ hour drive. My dad and I thought it was worth getting it even though I do not have...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all (please read) Our story begins 5 months ago when i bought my X3 3.0 Xdrive (M54) for $2500. I knew it had a bad CSB and u joint but the engine ran great aside from EVAP codes and lean bank codes (vacuum leaks that were soon fixed). I replaced the staked in ujoint, CSB, and guibo for a...
  4. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys, I am new to this forum so hope it helps me out with my new project! I removed the steering rack from my car due to a severe leak. I purchased a seal kit for it and I am currently trying to disassemble it. I have been following the steps from a Classic Bimmer Bits publication...

  7. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    So the car has a hard shift from 3-4 and then throws the dreaded 4F89 code. The transmission adapter seal has been replaced, followed by a transmission rebuild (clutch packs were not replaced because those looked good), followed by the mechatronic unit and solenoids. My mechanic has no other...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Learn from my error - Several years ago, I took my e53 X5 (130K) to a local transmission shop in NJ (Passaic Cty Transmission) who said they could get me a rebuilt one for $2,500. Total bait/switch. After 10 days, could not get one. Stupidly, I let them rebuilt it. It failed TWICE in a year...
  9. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys, i have a 2000 528i, M sport e39 with a shot transmission and 230,000km on the clock. I also have a 523i e39 from 1996 which i have no intentions of using/restoring. Basically im wondering if i can swap this transmission from the 523 into the 528? from what i gather they possibly both...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So i have recently purchased a 2000 528i m sport at 210,000k's, without knowing the auto transmission was shot. Revs out and loses any acceleration at 60kmh, wont change up past gear 4, even manually. apart from one misfiring cylinder the car is in pristine condition, exterior and interior are...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Long time member of bimmerfest and appreciate all the expert opinion. Own a 2005 X3 with 230K miles that runs great but developed a short thumping sound when accelerating--but only occasionally. Sounds seems to come from rear. Took it to a mechanic who reproduced the sound on a lift coming...
  12. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    I have a 1999 E36 M3 and I am not sure if I have rust under my car or if it's just normal dirt and grease. I took photos of the areas that I think may have rust on them. Also, if these parts are rusty what can I do to fix the rust?
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I recently purchased a money pit. Its a 1990 325i, 5 speed and all seemed good on the surface. Sorry for the length of this post, I'm playing catch up for this build. And i put in a lot of detail, at least try to. The car has next to nothing for rust, a few dings and dents, a cracked dash...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    -My father and I rebuilt the front end of my 2002 e46 325ci. There is a electrical connector that is loose. It is not the headlights for those are dialed in. Where could this electrical connection go to!?! . Picture is in the attachments below please help!
  15. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    My October build 2006 M5 SMG transmission has been declared dead by a BMW dealership. They hooked up their wires, cleared the codes, reprogrammed the transmission CPU and that did not fix the problem. Though the problem is still there, it does not generates any fault codes. BMW dealership...
