    Ok so I recently bought a 2004 530i that has given me more problems than I care to share, but most recently the biggest pain is that the car wouldn’t start so long story short I had to buy a new key but now when I start the car the wipers come on and stay on and the trunk lid pops open whenever...

    I need help guys. I had my 550i detailed and apparently the guys blasted water into the engine bay and now the car no longer starts and I cannot even open the trunk. The car lights up and I hear a click when I try to start it, but it never starts. What could have possibly gone wrong...

  10. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Hello I recently bought a G30 530D which has the stop/start system. I was wondering if anyone had tips to make it ending shut off process smoother?
