    Hey everyone, I’m very clearly new to these boards but as made evident by the title, I’m also a new BMW owner as well! Additionally, this is the first European car I’ve ever owned as well so a lot of firsts here. Now onto my questions: 1.) the manual says it requires 5W-40 full synth. I have...

    I often carry things in my front passenger seat. The weight triggers the seatbelt chime. Any legitimate way to disable this?

  8. General BMW Questions
    Can anyone tell me when weight sensors were put into the passengers seat. I have a 1999 328ci coupe . I thinking that my passengers seat in my model can only tell that someone is sitting in it not their weight. :D

  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi Folks, I am curious to know if any of you have the weight specs for all the E36 M3 wheels. I haven't been able to find anything about this topic on this forum, or at BMW AG Performance Division. As many of you know from my other thread, I haven't yet bought an E36, but the quest...
