  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Purchased this a 2014 335xi for under half the market value due to these disclosed issues. I’ve lost all my hair giving it a go at repair. I am new to working on BMWs and have learned so much already. The seller said these issues appeared mostly around the same time so I hoped that it was a...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, I have a squealing noise coming from the front accessory area of my 2011 E92 335i coupe with an N55. It all started after I picked up my car from getting a valve cover gasket and oil filter housing gasket done at a BMW dealership. I assume the dealership cleaned up the oil in the...

    Hi folks. When my E36 is folded up, on the driver's side there's a knocking when I hit bumps. Some parts over the years have broken off (plastic parts of some nature) and I'm not sure what it is, nor how to go about trying to fix it. I'm going to put a towel over the whole driver's side...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, So a couple days ago I aquired a cheap BMW 530d e39 Touring 1999 that I'd like to restore into driving condition at first and later a paint job and some tuning, which shouldn't be too hard except for one problem that I don't quite know where to start. So the car has been standing still for...

The problem I'm having is with the stereo -- not only will it not power-up, but the red security LED...
