New member BMW 2002 530I

Hello to all from Augusta, Georgia!
I was searching on any info for the dreaded "Twisted Seats" and came across your website. I have a young son that is very proficient in repairs and he's done most anything I needed done. Thanks for the help and diagrams posted. I'll have him fix that for me.

Buying 2005 745Li Tomorrow (fingers crossed!)

Joined forum to learn about E65/E66. Going to dealership to discuss purchase of 2005 745Li with 56k miles. I might shed my 12 yr/old Buick Park Avenue Ultra and enjoy a world class driving machine. Wish me luck!

Hello from Dubai

Hi everyone

I just recently bought a 2006 750Li. It has 73k kilometres on it and is in very good shape. Had it checked out by local Bosch service Center who gave it a thumbs up.

I will soon be posting some photos and developing the garage.

This appears to be a great place to exchange ideas on BMW and DIY subjects:thumbup:

Hello everyone! I have been lurking on these boards for a week or two. I recently purchased a 12 528i and am loving it. I am out of north Louisiana and hoping to run into some events and such down this way. Seems to be a lot of real good people on here.

Since you all got me into this - I though I'd Say Hi,
I'm Space - the once previous owner of a 325e that "fell" into my lap and needed to be overhauled from the bottom up. I had a great shop then in Poolsville, MD where anything that could be thought up could be realized. All I had to do was point and say, "bypass that", "install a switch there", "break-it here" and so on toward my youthful driving bliss. As a result, I learned very little about my car other than how to come up with some unique solutions and employ them to remand the car into steady, reliable operation. So, why the blame?
Well, my love of the 6er goes back to my 325e days. It was on its particular last-legs - about 400 thousand miles total- when the body began to show the signs of my serious sins: the car had been in a previous-to-me roll-over, it had had bondo on every every panel when I got it, all four wheels were bent, and, I had only the cash to make her mechanically sound and none to make her shine. She realized the focus of a 22 year old: First, clouds were painted on it to accentuate the bondo into some artistic order - any hope of a real paint job would have been a $5000 commitment: NOT!, sorry all, I was 22 and poor - the car cost me $100. Then, I painted her all brown, as best I could, and after dubbing her "Skiddo" I preceded do drive her as she had been intended - from 165 thousand to about 400 - pain free. Until, a yellow 6er crossed my path in Annapolis and made me whine for a bright and beautiful car - inside and out.
Soon enough, "Skiddo" was donated and a family car ( a mini van ) towed my family until the crib years had passed. A 92 Grand Marquis replaced the "crib-van" and now a shinny (red) 6er fills my heart and drains my wallet - a bit. I bought that little red one at that car dealer on the outskirts of Laurel, MD for cheap. Based upon the low price of the car, I planned for a rebuild right away, and was spot on. Soon, with a few extras, I'll be on the road-for-real with a delightful shine to brighten up my day. Her undercoat is rust free save for some of the exhaust and handling is spot-on throughout - no whine, just a little juggle from the safety break - I can fix that! She passed inspection but for 4 new tires and a battery clamp.
Soon, I will be brimming in Bimmer heaven and saving money for a new trans.
And, because I was clouded into thinking of silver linings, and breezy days by reading of all of the success this lot has had with their 6ers, I did not pass it up, and am hereby "ready-for-more" as I attempt to keep this fine looking, feeling, and smelling ( ooh that smell again! of an 80s BMW! ) automobile running worthy of her name.
Thank you for the many pages of sage advice garnered by my many hours of reading your posts. This forum is an asset and an inspiration. Soon enough, I'll be swimming again.
Very Much Yours,
Space

Greetings. I have finally registered after following Bimmerfest for quite some time. I currently drive a 2006 325i. I have owned that for about 5 years and now I'm considering the F30. This is my first post and just wanted to say hey.

Hi, I'm new here today. Just got a 2009 535i series.

I thought this would be a good place to start. The manual is making me crazy. So many things to learn.

I do have a question. What did I do to screw up my door locks. When I got the car a few days ago, it would lock as I walked away from it. But after pushing all kinds of buttons it isn't working. I have to use the non key to lock it when I'm getting out.

Thanks for any help you can give me! I am flabbergasted with the manual.

I've never had to read one on any of my cars and I had a BMW before but not like this one

:p

What's up everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new to the forum and to the BMW lifestyle. And after reading some of the posts here, I see that driving a BMW is a way of life. I'm looking to get into my first BMW and I've found a lot of useful information here. I've always admired BMWs from afar, it's time to get up close and personal!:D
