    Just bought this car. Everything drives fines no dents or scratches very clean and sleek. Car has exactly 92,000 miles and want to do the basic maintenance myself.

    First time post, lurking for the last few months on this forum to repair my 02 325xi with 249k miles. I bought the car as a project, love fixing and tinkering with it in my spare time. I only have code P1085: fuel control mixture limit too lean bank 2 sensor 1. I’ve read JFOJ’s huge post, and...

    I'm trying to get better at doing fast starts with my manual 325xi, but I'm wonder what the best launching rpm is. I just overrevved it and had my clutch slip like crazy so I figured instead of doing trial and error I'd just ask the forum. Btw, I know the 325xi isn't a super fast car but I'd...

    Hey all, I have a strange one that I cannot solve. I have a 2003 325xi, 5sp with 173k miles. I’ve only had it about 3 months and it’s driven fine, but during a plug change, noticed oil down in a couple of the plug holes. So a couple of weeks ago, pulled it into my garage and changed the...

    Hi all - I was sent here from Bimmerforums, and was told you folks have forgotten more than I'll ever know about my car, so hopefully you can help! I picked up a 2003 325XI over the weekend for $1600, knowing it had a few issues. Its got 129k on the clock. I've been a DIY mechanic for the...

    So I bought this 02 325xi off someone knowing it had a few issues. I'm a little worried right now though because of all the codes that just popped up for me, when I first ran the scan only 2 popped up, now its 8. They are as follow P0300, P1347, P1345, P1343, P0171, P0174, P0183, P0185. I...

    I’ll start by saying I’m a newbie to the BMW realm, (I Hope realm wasn’t too dark lol) and I purchased a 03’ 325i M54 engine about half a year ago. After an oil change and minor vehicle maintenance hence my inexperience with German cars. Story short, the gasket blew and it smoked like a train. I...

    I apologize for this being so long, so there's a summary near the end, as I tend to add too many details. So I bought a beautiful 2004 325xi Sport Wagon last November, and shortly after my purchase I would notice a slight to moderately bad burning oil smell coming through the AC vents with the...

    I just bought my first BMW, a 2004 325xi with 158K. I'm used to doing maintenance at fixed mileage intervals. Should I trust what the computer tells me about oil change and maintenance intervals? I know it was recently serviced (previous owner worked for a BMW dealer), and it's telling me a...

    I just bought my first BMW after having owned Audis, Fiats, Triumphs, Saabs, and Volkswagens. It's a 2004 325xi with 156K and so far I'm really liking it. But there are a few things I'd like to address, and I'm hoping for a few pointers. The left front turn signal housing seems a little bit...

    I came out of a movie with my wife in Brooklyn, and some bastards had stripped my pretty cherry stock recently acquired 325 XI of some essentials that I need to replace ASAP. I'm looking for the following in order of priority since the car is street parked! Driver's Side Window Front Hood...

I have had the car for about a year, and during that time I have put in 2 engines and swapped out the original dove grey interior for a black interior. I can...

    So I have a 325xi and my passenger window rolls up and down but not more than half way. I'm not very car savvy but I've heard the window regulators are common problems in these cars, anyone know if this is a regulator problem or something else?

    Hey, I'm experiencing some excessive oil consumption, and by excessive I mean I add oil to the car more times in a week than I go for gas. Was heading to a meeting yesterday and the light came on, checked my dipstick and it was bone dry, I filled up on oil 4 days before (light was still coming...
