  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey everyone. My car got rear ended a couple weeks ago and I took my car to a BMW body shop and I just picked it up. It was a 2008 335i with zero problems, zero engine codes, absolutely nothing wrong with the car, I take very good care of it. When I picked it up, all of a sudden popped up...

  3. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    Hey everyone, This is my first time posting and my search didn't turn up anything. I need to replace part #'s 31106861157 and 31106861158 The two options I have been looking at are the Lemforder's or Meyle HD's. They are both about the same price to my door. Does anyone have any experience...
  4. General BMW Questions
    Hey ya'll, I would love any thoughts on maintenance for a 2011 X5 35D. I just bought it, it has 150k miles, and seems to run well. I know it needs an oil change, but other than that I'm not familiar with BMW diesel engines. What would you recommend going through and checking? What type of...
  5. 1 Series & 2 Series
    I have a 2014 f20 116d 2.0L. Car on startup is fine and runs good but after a while the RPMs jump in idle. I have two faults on the car 245700 (but the DPF was manually cleaned with heat and ultrasound) and 290900 (took out the EGR and it wasn't that dirty, cleaned it and put it back). Coul the...
  6. General BMW Questions
    I'm really hoping someone has an answer to this; It seems sometimes whenever I have a hard shift (say slowing down, not to a complete stop, and then accelerating; or accelerating up a hill from a stop) I get the engine malfunction, reduced power message. The message stays on my car and iDrive...
  7. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Got into my first fender bender and didn't have collision (f*ck me I know). Looking to replace my hood and the steel options are more than half the cost of aluminum. Only thing I'm worried about is the extra weight on the hood struts. Anybody have any insight if I need to replace the struts, and...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I went to a shop that only works on BMW's to get my splash cover re-mounted on the underside of my 2006 E64. He told me that he noticed these problems while working on my vehicle, and said that their severity on a scale of 1-5, 1 being an absolute disaster; is a 2. Naturally this scares the shit...

    Hey everyone!…new to the bmw community and I recently had a shift fork/linkage break keeping me stuck in 4th gear and not able to shift out of it…..im wondering if anyone is familiar with or can help guide me through the process of repairing it? I can’t find anything online about manual 550i’s
  10. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Adventures in Replacing a Fuel Pump on a 2001 Z3 M-Roadster Well I still have my M-Roadster since 2001 and now find that I have a fuel pump leak. Only happens when it runs and doesn't shoot out or anything, just sort of dribbles. Just enough that you smell it in the garage when I park it. I had...
  11. E90/E92/E93 M3 (2008 - 2014)
    Have a 2010 BMW M3 coupe dual clutch, ~50k miles, with a damaged engine. I am the only owner of this car and pretty much babied it the whole time owning it. Never tracked, launched, driven aggressively, etc. A few days ago the car just started acting weird. It happened while it was raining...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've had some abs modules lying around and decided to open them up. Now I have found the error cause and it was a broken silver bond (common issue). Next step was taking the old bonds out and replacing them with thin jumper wire. But the problem is, no matter what I do, the solder won't stick...
  13. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Just got this car about a week ago, upgraded from an 04 330xi. Day or two ago there was a large piece of lumber on the ground the guy in front of me swerved around, didnt have the time myself to swerve around because they waited till the last minute and it fucked up my lower engine cover on the...

  15. G20 (2019 - Current)
    My 2020 M340i is currently in the shop after displaying only the text message display for low oil pressure. Never displayed a check engine light, yellow oil can light, or red oil can light. After 2+ weeks of diagnosing, per BMW (car is under warranty) the dealership has finally ordered a new oil...

    Hey all, I drive a 2015 328i xDrive. Today I was replacing the mirror covers - drivers side was fine. Popped out the mirror, replaced the cover, popped back in without issue. Wasn’t so lucky with the passenger side. I went to pop it out and the mirror cracked. No other part of the actual housing...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I knew I needed to replace my disa valves due to a rough idle and a couple of different codes when the pars arrived I pulled out the old large disa valve to find the flap was gone the pin that is known for destroying engines was still there I am confused on how this happened and where the flap...
  19. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    To make a long story short, I found a great CPO 2020 230i w/ Performance Package, Premium Essentials, and a manual transmission I wanted in the province over. I searched for around 2 weeks and found nothing local, and all prospects would have to be shipped to me. All in, the 230i is costing...
  20. General BMW Questions
    Hey everyone, I'm interested in getting 26 years worth of door dings and minor dents removed from my 95 M3 + a relatively bad gash near the tail light as shown below which would require a respray. None of the other dents are bad enough for a respray/paint to be necessary (sorry for low res...
