  1. E46 XI
    I bought my 2001 330xi last week and on my drive home after buying the vehicle my DSC and my red brake light turned on. I was using cruise control on the way home but after the lights turned on the cruise control doesn't work, but I don't know if this was related. I was just curious if anyone...

    Hello guys, I started to have problems with abs. I was riding 130km/h and tree light come on. Yellow abs light, red black light and traction control. I scanned the car via INPA. These codes runned out. When i cleared the codes and read again, only code 65 was in memory. Could it be rear abs...

    I need to replace my brake booster on my 2004 330Ci. I bought it thinking I'd do it myself, but it's seemingly a more daunting task than I'd originally thought. Has anyone had a shop do this job? On my model it's buried under the electronics box, not in the drug bin. How many hours did they...

    Hello, During the process of doing the brakes and adding SS lines, it was discovered that the bubble flare on the hardline was not seating properly and causing a leak. SO I cut off the old flare, and used a flare tool to remake it. Since this is my first time ever doing so, naturally I didn't...

    Hello lads my car is a 2004 325i. Recently I have been some problem, such as, the brakes would occasionally fail. It works most of the time, but if I happens to brake really hard, it will lose brake after that, as in the pedal goes to the floor, and the brake light goes on. Then after a while...

    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i :excited:and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow...

    Recently bought a 325ci it's a 2001 117k on the clock. The brakes make a buzzing/vibrating sound which you feel through the brake pedal when at low speeds coming to a stop. Spoke to Halfords and they said could be the rotors being warped although im not convinced (pretty sure front pads need...

    I had my car garaged for some time while I was painting it. When I finished the job and drove the car after, the ABS, DSC, and (yellow) BRAKE lights all came on. These lights will come back on immediately if I disconnect the battery and start the car - they do not need the car to be moving to...

    How would I install dynamic brake force display on my BMW. It's a 2005 325ci with the led tail lights.

    Hey All, Long time BMW owner, first time poster. Title says most of it. I went away for Christmas break for 3 weeks and came back to find my computer (with the mileage, temp, etc.) blank (light still on, but blank). The car still works fine so I think nothing of it. Fast forward 2 days and I...

    Does anyone know of a way to get coupe tail lights to fit on a vert? I've read that they are different but I have yet to find out in what way or why they don't interchange. It seems that many of the nicer lights aren't made for verts or cost more than the coupe equivalent. I'd really rather not...
  14. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hi all. I left my '03 325i Touring parked for three weeks while I went on a business trip. When I got in the car to drive it, it wouldn't move - is if it were in Park and the hand brake engaged. I checked. I was in reverse. The hand brake was off. Odd. I tried Drive. Then Reverse. Several...

    Hi, does anyone have or have used a brake bleeder like this? I have a chance to get one for cheap and I need to do a fluid flush anyway. How does this work and do I need an adapter for the master cylinder?

    When I bought my e46, it sounded like it needed new pads, so I replaced the fronts. Shortly after this, I still noticed a screech at slower speeds so I replaced the back pads; still no dice, unfortunately. I put a good amount of synthetic brake grease on every single pad. I also cleaned off...
  17. E46 M3
    I have a 2005 M3 with 80k miles, the last time I had the front pads changed my machanic advised that I should look to change the front rotors soon.. that was a while back.. I've never had any performance problems with the stock setup set up but as Im gonna be spending some cash and the original...
  18. Suspension, Brakes
    Hey guys! I've been on the forums looking for research on this, and there's many mixed opinions. I went from my loud, dusty OEM brakes to an off brand. I feel the person who helped me installed them, when messing compressing the cylinders for new pads, may have let some air into the system, and...
