    I have a 2010 535i, I recently had to stop driving the car as the car would no longer go into gear... it would just pop back into park. I came out today and reset codes, now there’s no codes and the car goes into gear but it won’t move it just acts like it’s in neutral, and when trying to put it...

    I have a pretty constant issue when driving at a constant speed (especially noticeable at low speed) when beginning accelerating there is a rough(not hard just rough) driveline engagement. If I'm supper smooth slowly pushing the gas the hit is not noticeable. it just when I switch brake to gas...

    Hello, I've been on this site a few times and finally decided to make an account! Everyone seems to be so helpful in the threads so I thought I'd give it a shot too. Here it goes (there's a lot!) First of all my coolant light keeps going on and off, and it'll do this while I'm driving on the...

    A problem I've noticed recently is that it is very difficult to shift into first gear sometimes. No grinding or anything and it's almost as if there's a wall stopping me from putting it in first. The clutch is fully depressed and typically only happens when going from stopped in neutral then...

    Hi everyone, I just purchased an 09 BMW 328i. It has 118.2k miles on it. It has an automatic transmission. I recently started feeling the transmission make clunky sounds when shifting from park to any gear or from any gear in general. The car moves a little so i am slightly worried. It drives...

    Hi guys, first post in this forum. I have a '06 325i 4door. When coming to a stop, the transmission waits until the car is almost completely stopped and then shifts hard into first gear. Shifting up or down through all other gears is creamy smooth, hard shift does not happen when using the...

    Hi guys. 2011 535xi here. Just experienced a transmission Malfunction! Just happened when i just drove into my drive way from a day of work. After the message came up, i was still able to put into reverse and park the car in. I dont have warranty...:cry: recently, I ve been experiencing some...

    I drive a 2003 325xi with 83,000 miles and I've noticed whenever I shift into Reverse or Drive, it will make a thumping noise along with a small jerk. The car shifts fine when I'm driving, except if I really hammer the gas it'll slightly jerk. I'm wondering what this could be
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I just bought a 97 bmw 540i/6 manual with about 95k. Its been about 2 weeks with it and shifting to 2nd and 3rd feels rusty and not smooth anymore. I feel as if the shifter goes through some metal parts before it engages in the gear. And i have to give it a sort of slow push into the gear, if...

    So I use the manual shift on my automatic 328i and one of my friends a few days ago was saying that using the manual on a automatic car is one of the quickest ways to blow your transmission after a while if you continue to use manual. I almost always shift with manual on the car even though its...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    As I was driving around last night in my 2003 745Li Sport, I missed my turn and had to turn around at a median. I took the turn normally (nothing too fast) but noticed I underestimated the speeds of the oncoming traffic.. Not wanting to get rear ended, I gassed it. Within seconds I heard an...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 95 bmw 325i with 143,000 miles. Every time I shift into second, it feels like I have to slam the shifter into place. Not super hard, but it is very stuff and not as smooth as the other gears. What could this be from and do you guys have any suggestions as to what to do?
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I just bought a short shifter off of ebay, and I am wondering if it possible to install it without needing to get under the car. I have a '95 325i and I am trying to improve my performance inside the car, rather than spending a bunch on the engine (which I will do anyways) but I don't want to...

    I have always been scared of mis shifting in a manual. Soon Il be buyi g a 335i e92 manual, and its going to be the first manual i have driven my dad is looking forward to teach me but I'm scared of being around 7k rpm, and shifting down instead of up by accident, would this break the...
  17. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a strange question.. It seems ridiculous and I myself don't really believe it but I wanted to get y'alls opinion. I have a good friend who drives an E36 as well and knows them fairly well. He told me that there's some form of "clutch sensor" that slightly delays the clutch from linking...

    i have a 88 325i convertable. we replaced the old soft top back in june bc the old one was falling apart and also had shifted towards the passengers side. we've noticed the past few months that my new top has started to shift as well and i would like to know if anyone else has had this problem...
