    Car is a 2004/4 E46 M3 with new Slave cylinder, Electric motor and Gear position sensor. I had just replaced my pressure plate and clutch, due to a previous faulty pressure plate. After putting everything back together I went to start the car but it doesn't want to shift. I read codes which...

    Hello. I have a 2002 convertible M3 that I bought in 2014 with about 89000 miles. For the last couple years I have had an unreliable crank issue that has been stumping me. Therefore I am unable to drive this amazing vehicle except for a drive with no stops that ends at home. I have other...

    Hey, i have recently replaced the o-ring in the clutch slave cylinder in my E61 525i ssg. After getting the slave cylinder back into the car i filled up the hydraulic system, bled the system with inpa before starting the gear adaption/clutch biting point procedure. In the end of the...
  6. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hey everyone I was hoping to hear some advice before I bring my 645 into an Indy for repair. For the last two months, I was unable to get to my car because of COVID. I came back this week to start it up, and no start. I got a new battery, put it in, the car fired right up. However, now I had a...

    Good afternoon, My 6er is currently stuck in N and is unable to shift gears. In the mornings however the SMG is able to shift and there are no fault codes. After around five minutes of running, I receive a yellow cog and am unable to shift gears. When I attempt to shift from N to 1, I hear the...

    Does anybody know how to get my transmission back in neutral? I can't start the car unless it is in Neutral. The pump is working fine, I hear it when I unlock the door.

  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I've read a few posts on this, and cant really get a good clear answer on how to perform this... It also gets confusing when you're trying to read how to do it on a M vs a non-M, most people have posted how to do it for the M. Some say, hold the brake peddle and rev it around 2k-3k rpms and...
