  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I lack a lot of info, but I'll do my best. My brother has a 2008/09 x3, there's been oil leaks and he had 2 gaskets replaced at different times. Now there's olddd oil, and new(?) or newish oil. Looking for easiest+cheapest way to diagnose if there's a problem now. Can't afford compression test...
  2. BMW News
    It may comfort you to hear that BMW isn't just testing its next grand tourer, the 8 Series, on the antiseptic, silk-smooth, high power test tracks of the world. The car is also being tested on real roads where real people could some day drive them. To wit, this video the brand released of the...
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey everyone. I just received my X5 back from the local factory BMW location after they completed the airbag and fuel pump recall. They provided me with a "KNOW YOUR VEHICLE" inspection and treatment plan. The gentleman stated it was an electronic test. Anyone have any experience to tell me...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've used my DMM to perform the simple test on the pin connector from the ABS module to the wheel speed sensors. I have run the test multiple times to insure that I am getting good connections and that my readings are the same. I get .0L on ever circuit switching from neg to pos and pos to neg...
  5. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey I was reading about the guy that had his alternator fail, and I tried to do the obc test just to mess around, and it did say test, then shut my car down. :mad: I turned the key off then on again, with no results... I haven't unplugged the battery yet, and I'm confident that will fix it, just...
  6. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I've been wanting to do a stomp test on my recently purchased 1989 525i (Feb '89), and I couldn't get it to work. It took me a few times to notice that when my key is in the on position before starting, my Check Engine light fails to turn on. In fact, I've never seen it on, thinking I bought a...
  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I have 213k miles on my 90' 325I and my compression is very low in cylinders 6 and 5 it's 120psi. And it increases as I go to the front of the engine. What is the reasoning to this? About 140 or more psi in cylinders 3 2 and 1. I also have a lot of carbon build up on the spark plugs in cylinder...
  8. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    So I wanted to experiment, and combine BMW's sport mode, with the pedalbox's sport+ mode, and obviously +Dinan Stage 5. The result gave me a drivegasm! The car became super loud as M6 and very fast as a rocket! Of course I videotaped it! I got 2 videos for you, full video of my engine sound, and...
