    Hey y’all. It looks like I have a bad real main seal. While I’m already down there, what other seals or gaskets do y’all recommend I change? Are there any other gaskets or seals that will go bad and it’s a good idea to replace, especially while I’m there? Thanks in advance :)

    Hello forum, I've got a problem I hope some might want to talk about with the 2002 745i. Btw I have a 2004 645ci which has the same problems only worse I guess because it was beat on more being a sports car. Anyway, I bought mine a couple years ago as a project car and succeeded in getting all...

    I just picked up a 1989 325ix with an automatic transmission. It has been meticulously maintained and i have all the service records to prove it, but in its old age it seems to have developed a leak in the transfer case. I'm pretty handy with a wrench but haven't worked on a transfer case...

    Hey guys (and gals, sorry) I'm looking for a transmission shop in the greater Los Angeles/Orange County/Inland Empire that can be trusted to do some work on a ZF 5SD-320Z (the manual transmission behind the M52, M52TU and 530i in the USA). I'm not afraid to travel a bit, but San Diego is about...

    06 550i with leaky valve guide seals. High oil consumption. I'm adding a quart every 3-4 weeks. White/blue smoke after long idle. All the classic symptoms. For a "valve job", which to me means replacing the valve guide seals, the stealership quoted me something funny like 8 grand. Most...

    I just picked up new 2014 550 M sport. I previously had a 2011 550. The previous 550 cabin was like a vault and there was virtually no wind noise that was discernible or at least ever noticeable to me. As soon as I drove the 2014 550, almost immediately it seemed that I was hearing more outside...

    Has anyone ever replaced the main roof seal that runs from the drivers window across the front of the roof and to the passenger window on a 328i convertible? Mainly I want to know is it just a matter of pulling out the old one and pushing the new one in, or does it involve opening up the roof...

    Hi, I have seen two seal kits that appear? to have different o-rings in them as listed for my car. I have a 1991 E30. There is one that just has round o rings, like this: http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E30-325i-M20_2.5L/Climate_Control/Air_Conditioning/ES2219357/ And then there is one that has...

    528i, swapping the engine, the transmission is out also. Everything is so easy to reach.. What should be a complete list of seals/gaskets to replace? Feel free to add other part replacements, too, that are mostly labor once the engine and transmission are back in. Thank you.

    Hey guys, first time post so sorry if mess up the etiquette or something :) I got a '88 528e last spring as my first car. It's in great condition and it runs like a charm but the door seals (especially driver door and trunk) are a bit faulty. I live in Seattle and would prefer to not have wet...

    Hi everyone! This is my first post. :) I got my new-to-me 2009 E91 back in September. This is my first BMW, although we have had them in my family growing up. I have a bit of a combo problem: the actual window seals and also the dealership. Any input is appreciated! My car is currently at the...

    Hey everyone first post. Getting blue/white smoke after driving car for a while. Only on acceleration. While driving with my wife following she says it smells like fireworks but no smoke. Took to BMW their pretty sure that it is the valve stem seals. They also think the guides as well. Now...
  14. E90/E92/E93 M3 (2008 - 2014)
    I wanted to contribute something back to the forum as a return for all the searches I did prior to picking up my E90. Many use the 1Z Gummi stuff, which works for a majority of the rubber seal areas except parts of the sedan doors where the seals both touch the frame of the door, as well as the...

    Hi all, I changed the vanos seals and installed the rattle kit from beisan systems. However, the vanos code is still there... Does anyone knows what else could the problem be? The codes with that I am getting are VANOS intake and VANOS exhaust. Thank you all
