  1. Car Navigation, Audio & Electronics
    2016 340i I suspect I've shot myself in the foot with something I did with Bimmercode, but have no clue how to correct. I have 256GB SSD attached to my iDrive system. For the most part it works flawlessly, except when I start the car after a period of time. This symptom doesn't occur when I...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Can I start a manual transmission 2013 328i with a DME kit pulled from an automatic transmission car? I got the kit from an automatic car but the car still won’t start I was wondering if there could be a different problem. If not do you know where I could order a manual kit? Thank you :)
  3. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi everyone! Recently i was coding my Bmw f20 116d and i was looking to change the startup animation on the idrive system. After checking the coding cheat sheets i found what i was looking for. I needed to change the 3001 STARTUP_EMBLEM and STARTUP_TYPE under HU_ENTRY. Unfortunately under my...
  4. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey everybody, I've got a startup issue here that I was hoping someone might know more about than what I could find using google. So last night I drove to the grocery store to get some delicious ice cream. I pay, leave, and sit down to start my car. Turn the key, all my lights come on, but no...
  5. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    My 2011 X5 xDrive35i Premium sometimes fluctuates between 250 RPM and 500 RPM above the normal idle level ten seconds or so after I start it. It typically only does this upon a cold start, and only once or twice a week. The way it's done is actually more like the car is deliberately revving its...
  6. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi All I have battling a recurring engine code with my local dealer. I have had it in 3 or 4 times now and they have "resolved it" each time. To be fair they are just as frustrated as me. The X3 has been stalling under the following conditions. It is the 35i 1. On startup, mostly on colder...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Can the Vanos make a little bit of noise when starting the engine cold or warm, I have notices as soon as the oil pressure light goes out the noise stops. But its a reall quick noise, and it doesn't do it on ever start up say its warm and let it sitcom 45 mins it doesn't make noise but maybe...

    Hi, I have a 00 523i and was hear this kind of buzzing in the engine compartment on the second last stage of ignitition and ticking noise, is this normal? This next key stage starts the engine of course! Many thanks, Mike.
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Dear All, My E90 has started smoking on engine start-up. This happened after an oil leak was corrected (apparently the head gasket had the leak). The car is only 2 years old. The smoking does not occur at each and every start, but rather every 2 days or so. It happens most often in the...
  10. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    When ever I start my car after sittign for awhile, it idles at about 1,000 and will rev up to 1,200 and back down for the first 10-20 seconds then will purr nice, but sounds like **** untill then. Any quick fixed on this or is it a 7 series thing. Its a 2006 750Li with 52,000 miles.
