  1. 3 Series & 4 Series
    So, I need a little guidance from you folks with more knowledge and experience. My son just purchased a 2008 335xi. Looks like it has all the bells, etc., but some not connected. For example, after some research I found that the car is: S5GA Preparation Alarm System what does it take to...
  2. General BMW Questions
    I have small wireless motion detection camera I want to install in my 2007 X3, as there's been theft in my garage complex. The camera itself only has a 60 minute battery life, but works while charging via USB > micro USB. The camera itself has a 350mAh battery, with power dissipation of...
  3. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I have a 1995 540i with a 3 button remote. I have not found many explanations on how to pair this remote to the car. It is not the separate key fob, the buttons are built into the key that turns the ignition. The power locks do work, just not remotely. I have changed the battery and the red LED...

    Folks, We'll be driving in less-than-secure areas south of the border over the next two years, and I'm looking for suggestions as to how to get some additional security for my OEM-made rack and roof box. Ours is a 2013 X3 with factory roof rails, BMW roof rack with locks, and a BMW roof box...
  5. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi Everyone, thanks to this forum and other places in the WWW I managed to code my car for the first time - it is a F22. I really only wanted to disable ASD and I managed to do so by coding model series from F22 with N55 to F020/F021. So far so good - it works! Now to the question. For E-Sys I...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've been having some weird problems in my 99 328is. The trunk all of a sudden stopped opening. The button feels like it isn't doing anything. I was able to open the trunk from inside the car (I have fold down seats) and when I looked at the mechanism it looks to be in the locked position no...
  7. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Gurus, I took delivery of my X3 recently and wondering what additional security and tracking devices people are using in their BMWs. I know Lojack is one of them and many dealers sell BMWs preinstalled with LOjack but is it worth the investment? Do I really need additional security and...
  8. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Have just purchased an X5 for road trips, the first of which commences this Friday. My vehicle does not have that scroll cover for the cargo area. Would like to buy one soon...at a good price. Also, I requested all-weather mats as a condition of purchase and the dealership complied. However...

    Ok, so lets begin by saying that I am new here and all the help I receive is greatly appreciated. Now for the problem and to start from the beginning. This is my neighbors car and I am trying to help him out as he is getting older and cannot do any of this work himself. His brother in law...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi everyone! First off, my apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I've done some research and found some great suggestions, but nothing seems to quite match my situation. But then, I'm pretty new here, so I could've overlooked. I'll throw it out there, and see what the experts think...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    well another story! this evening my car would start and shut down after 5 secs of running. I called BCAA and the mechanic suspected that it is the security system but he had no clue what to do. weird enough, while i was waiting for the tow truck to bring the car home, i tried starting it again...
