  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Started experimenting a while ago with different plugs for the my 2011 535i Stage 2+. Tried the NGK 1-step colder which were nice and cost me around $90, but then I found alternative Bosch plugs at 40% the cost of the NGK with the same performance. Let me know your thoughts and what plugs you...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I just did the spark plugs on my 2014 328i F30. These plugs were original to the car, I suspect. #4 has the most crud on the threads. But overall, I don’t see anything suspect for plugs that went 87k miles. Ordered 4 of the NGK plugs from FCPeuro. OE parts. The job is pretty straight forward on...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey everyone, I recently diy’ed my Valve Cover Gasket, Valvetronic Gasket, and Spark Plugs. I go to start up my car after verifying that everything was plugged back in correctly and torqued to spec, and it was misfiring badly. I tried starting it up again and it cranked and tried to idle...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey everyone I recently bought a BMW E90 325xi with 160.000km on it. It works fine and I even had it inspected at the dealership with no problems. However, when I was driving yesterday I decided to try a hard acceleration to see how the car reacted. I went up to probably 6500 revs and it...

  6. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hello, I am new to this page, but have owned multiple BMW's in the past. I just purchased a 2013 750LI a couple months ago. Two weeks ago I am driving on the highway and all of a sudden I get a little shaking then drivetrain warning came on. Got off the highway and had it towed home. I ran the...
  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Have a 2013 BMW 528i x Drive. I believe it is F10 chassis and N20 engine. Have bought the 4 spark plugs and special socket and getting ready to do change. I'm just under 60K miles. Here are some pictures of the plastic engine cover and not sure how to remove it. The wires attached, by clip...
  8. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys ! I'm in Toronto, driving a 89' e30 325i 4Door with 366,000km on it. I went out last week to go replace the spark plugs (misfiring) and the guy at the counter said the only ones he had instock were some NGK platinum ZRG5AGP that would work on my car. When I got home, I tried taking the...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I got some BOSCH ignition coils from a 328xi that intend to put on my N55 335xi. 2006-2012 coils i've heard are interchangeable and I will replace all of my coils with new ones. These coils were used for about 45K and they looked pretty clean. However 2 of 6 coils have these cracks on them and...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey there, i recently bought my first BMW, its an E36 325i (M50B25TU I believe) It is a project, as I have a daily driver so I will be doing some performance modifications in the future For now, I would love some help from other E36 enthusiasts about keeping my car in tip-top shape It...

  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I recently had my check engine light come on, so I scanned it with my Peake Research R5/FCX-3. I came up with the following codes. Table 11: F5: Secondary air system flow too low, Cyl #1-3 FC: EVAP incorrect purge flow E5: PreCat 02 sensor response time, Cyl #1-3 I did a search...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Good or bad Give or take I replaced them anyway, some say 40k interval but I think that is way too long esp on a 12 year old car. I drive her hard maybe once or twice a month. Meaning: doing over 120mph for a couple minutes. Didn't having any issues I just felt like changing them since it's...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am driving an e90 BMW 335i with the n54 engine 2008. Mileage 80,000. I purchased the car used and took the car in for a diagnostic through a European shop for misfires on cylinder four. I was informed that by a diagnostic from the dealer (previously) that this was due to fuel injectors. The...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2007 BMW 328xi and I cycled through all my sensors going off today and found quite a few. I already ordered rear brakes and spark plugs but I can't figure out what all the sensors mean. I don't know how to post pictures on here from my phone so if anyone knows of somewhere on the...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I've always used NGK BKR6EQUP 3199 plugs on my e39 and never had a problem... I'm wondering would it be fine to use the same type plugs on my e60 ? according to realoem, there were ENDED and replaced with part # 12120037607 (BMW)
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just bought my very 1st BMW X5. It's pristine and had 1 owner prior and all the maintenance was on point and completed at the local BMW dealership (where 1st owner purchased). I bought the car from a dealership (not BMW) but did find out the 1st owner had a 100k pre-paid maintenance plan on...
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    ok so the other day I did my VCG, couple weeks before that, I changed my spark plugs and noticed a little oil in well #6 (bank 2) I thought to my self, ut oh, its time for a new vcg, so later on, I went back to check all my spark plugs and again I saw a little oil sitting at the very bottom of...
