  1. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    New to the world of BMW. Got my hands on a '05 E65 740i. A beautiful machine albeit with some character:rofl:. Just getting it fixed one thing at a time to get it road ready. Was looking at videos to fix parking brake actuator and came across some that recommended upgrading the plastic gears...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Background: My 528i (m52tu) has low compression in cylinder 3, and I'm in the process of removing/replacing the cylinder head. The car was overheated years ago, still ran ok but was never quite the same, had cylinder 3 misfire codes, spent some time in storage and now I'm tearing into it. My...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have just come into possession of a sweet X3. I am putting together a plan to build it out and want to start with performance upgrades. I see a lot of information on the N52 engine platform, but most of it does not relate to the X3. Instead of reinventing the wheel...can you tell me how...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2006 530xi and I was just wondering if there are any fairly cheap upgrades that I can do to get more power from my car. I don't have a lot of money to spend and definitely not enough to sell my car and get like a 535 or 335. I have the sports button which makes the car feel more nimble...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey I've been looking for a 328i for a while now, finding the right one with top hifi seems difficult. I've found the perfect vehicle but with a catch, it has hifi, not top hifi. I love good sound in a car and the choice of strong bass seems nice too. Would y'all recommend I purchase the hifi...

    Hello fellow M6 owners, I just wanted to start a thread on carbon fiber trim and accessories. This includes everything carbon fiber: e.g. steering wheel, trunk (boot), hood (bonnet), what ever. Is that what Europeans call a hood, a bonnet? idk What brands do you recommend? Fitment? Bang for...

  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I just got a 06' 325i sedan last week. It's the best car I've ever owned. I wanted to do some work on it for more power and more of a sport ride. I was told that if I put anything in it I would have to change something else just to balance things out (for ex. If I change the tires and rims to...

    I'm interested in putting some upgrades into my Beemer but I don't know where to start. What should I do first? Are my options limited because I have a 328i and not a 335i? I also have a warranty with the dealership, does this prevent me from upgrading?

    Hi everyone, I bought my black 2004 BMW 325i with 92,000 miles in November and haven't done too much to it except for adding halo rings for the headlights and M wheels.
