  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi guys, If I've left my 2011 X5 sitting locked for any amount of time (we're talking two or three minutes), whenever I go to start it, it's always got the volume turned down to the most faint setting, regardless of where the volume was the last time the vehicle was running/on. It doesn't...

    I have a 2007 328i that would not start this morning. All lights/gauges turn on but car will not start. Tried to jump off but no luck (battery was replaced 10 months ago at dealer). The strange thing is the brake feels mushed to the floor. Any ideas? Much appreciated.

  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    BMW E30 355i SE 1987 Recently It takes some time for my engine to fire up after turning the key a good number of times. The car does fire up eventually but not sure what is causing the delayed ignition to fire. During a few journeys the car just cut out without warning too at speed. Could...
  8. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    When I turn the key the starter spins and spins however the engine does not start until I turn the key off and then turn it back on. It always starts great on the second or third time. Any ideas on why it won't start on the first attempt? :(

  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a dumb/weird question. When I turn on my car in the morning or when the engine is cold, I hear this humming noise (metal sounding) but not Very Sharp noise. But it sounds like metal. If the hood is closed, I can hear it.. I would rate it 2-3 (1-10rating with 10 being the loudest). Once I...
