    Going to try and sum this up, in a short term. Recently just bought a 2007 e90 335i, a day or two after bringing it home, I noticed upon starting the car (no cold start) it would take 1-2 seconds to crank and turn over. This has happened 2-3 times already, but its intermediate. Also, this...

    I have a 2008 535xi, twin turbo with 110,000 miles. Things are starting to go wrong with it. Last week: smell of gas, white smoke, rough idle. (replaced all six fuel injectors and spark plugs) Still smells like gas but runs fine. Repair shop ran the codes and found the code: 29f3. BMW has a...

    Hey guys, First post! I was hoping that I can just find some answers lurking on different forums, but seems to me that my specific problem wasn't shared by anyone else. So here it is...My SES light was one a few months ago when it was really cold, my car died after backing out of a parking...

    Hi all. Thanks for reading my post. I'm driving a 2005 X5 4.4. I have had it for about 3 years and always serviced. I don't off road and use it just as a regular car. It has done 114.000 km. About a week ago the service engine soon light came on but only for a minute and it went off again...
  5. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I purchased a 2005 BMW 645ci from a private party (deep discounted) and was aware of a few electrical issues. The owner told me that "these things happen every now and then" when the radio and display screen would shut off time to time. There was also a dynamic drive malfunction fault that would...

    Recently, i became the owner of my first BMW. This was a 2001 325Ci. With 119,000 miles. The car seems to be sputtering, having a rough idle and sluggish take off. The car appears to be on and off with its acceleration. For example, when you first start the vehicle you receive a rough idle but...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 95 325i that is having trouble starting. I have to crank on it at least three different times before it starts only to have it sputter and run rough when I apply the gas pedal. After the engine warms up, the roughness gets better but when I shut the engine of then restart, the process...

    My 318i loses power while driving. Check Engine Light will light up, and the car will lose power, when accelerating, it is without power. If I turn the key off and on, the car will drive smooth again for a while. I replaced the air filter and spark plugs, I also fixed a vacuum leak. Any Ideas...

    Installed new Vanos seals from i6Motorworks on amazon, included some metal seals for the vanos housing reassembly. From what I understand Beisan supplies the teflon seal rings to Dr vanos and others? Now I'm getting fault codes on my peake reader, and a rough idle. Resetting the codes and...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have been on here for a while now trying to learn as much as I can from all you Bimmerfest vets. The only problem is... It gets a little difficult to decipher ( till its too late) For a beginner like me if What I just learned applies to my 2000 540i (e39) or not. So I'm hoping all will help...
