  1. M3 & M4
    I own a BMW M4 Competition 2021. When driving at a normal speed and giving the car full throttle, the vehicle begins to shake and lose power at 130 km/h. Does anyone else have the same problem, or does anyone know what the problem may be? I examined it on the car's system and found no error.
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    It's been 6 months now and my car still won't go over 2000 rpm ... 2nd gear is as far as it will go. I attached a screenshot from my odb reader. Anybody else had this issue? Limp mode, abs lights, traction control and CEL. So far I've replaced the valve cover, both fuel pumps, the fuel...
  3. General BMW Questions
    Hi guys, why do we have a separate idle control valve? If it just lets air in while idling, why not just have a mechanical arm or other method to keep the throttle cracked open during idle? In fact I even seem to remember the carburettor on my old car (Holden) working like that. But that was 15...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, i am an owner of an e46 330ci and it's using a drive by wire as the throttle. I was looking on some itb kits (independent throttle bodies). All of them are using wire connection between throttle and pedal and my car has drive by wire. Are there any kit for my scenario? Please do not...

    Hi guys, newbie here! I am having an issue with my wife’s BMW. It’s a 2008 328xi 3.0 litre inline 6 engine with 219,000km I guess I’ll start from the top. Last summer the car kept throwing an oxygen sensor code (can’t remember which one) I reset the light and it would stay off for a long time...
  6. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi all, I have a '16 RWD M235i Manual with no mods, with ~30,000 miles. This issue has plagued me since around 15,000 miles (rough guess, it's been a long time, about a year and a half). Occasionally, when I'm cruising along at around 1800 to 2200 RPMs with throttle depressed, and then let off...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm doing the 3-stage intake manifold swap for my 328i. I'm about to remove the old manifold, and I need to disconnect this throttle body sensor. Tutorials indicate to "push the tab and pull out" but I can't see any tab and it won't disconnect. Tried basically everything without breaking it...

    Guys, especially the knowledgeable specialists - a couple of question for you: Vehicle: 2007 BMW X3 (E83) with N52 engine, 168K miles. 1. After about 150K or a bit more I started hearing gurgling sounds when I push the throttle a bit to get more power just before going uphill. What could...
