    I have a 2008 328xi e92 6MT. When in idle with clutch engaged, there's a fluttering noise coming from the transmission. When I press the clutch in, noise goes away. It's gotten worse over the last 6-8 weeks. Is this the throwing bearing?

    I hadn't driven my e46 In a couple of weeks. I went to start the car and the battery was flat. I left it for another week before getting it jumpstarted. After it was jumped I drove for a few seconds and the transmission light came on and the car started to lurch heavily whenever I slowed...

    I was driving 2014 428i and the autostart came on randomly when I stopped at a red light (as it didn’t come on other stops I made in the same trip) and when it turned green and I let my foot off the brake the engine always starts back up but it didn’t and some transmission alert popped up on the...

    Hello everyone, So I could really use some help I have a 2005 745Li and I recently ran into an issue with a Transmission Failsafe pop up followed by my car going into limp mode.

    Hello My 2009 F01 has twice put itself into Neutral while on the motorway, you cannot do anything but glide to a stop. It won't let you put it into park, reverse but I managed to get it into 2nd (or 3rd) but then it stays in that to limp home. If I turn the car completely off, then back on...
