    I have an 06 330cic ZHP with 113,000 miles on it. Don't know if this first part is relevant, but more info the better: Have a valve cover gasket leak, but it's not real bad. I have to add a little oil every now and then. Added a little -- a little -- too much oil the last time...was BARELY...

    Hi this is my first BMW so I'm new to this. I have a no start on my 99 328i. Wasn't getting spark. I moved the orange wire that grounds onto the valve cover and it started. Then it shut off again a little bit later and won't start back up. Any ideas?

    Completed the diy this morning (fairly simple for those who haven't done it). After putting everything back together, fired up the engine and it ran quite rough. Seemed to be missfiring. Turned the engine off, waited a few seconds, and turned it on again and it ran very smooth. It is normal for...
  7. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hello, I have a 2001 325Xi Touring with 217k on it. Runs well, no vanos issues, no tranny issues. I'm wondering if I should pre-emptively change the coils on this car? Is there any reason to do that? Do they have an expected life? If it makes sense to replace them, are the one performance...

  9. Tires, Wheels
    Hey everyone, I'm kinda stumped on what tires and spacers if any would be needed. I have 323I and I'm trying to figure out what tire size to buy. I really have to figure this out more sooner than later because a friend of mine is going to install my wheels and coils while he has the time open...

    I think it's time for some coils.. What i want to achieve is eliminate my wheel gap and play with the height.. i don't want to slam it.. (BMW E46 330Ci coupe) BUT.. my first concern is comfort.. Vogtland and AP (made by KW, cheaper series) coils are in my budget.. (ride height adjustable only)...

    I will be replacing my rear spring coils this weekend, but I hear a hiss from my shocks when I hit a bump. Is this normal shock noise? Where is the jack point in the middle of the car (differential):facepalm:?

    I just purchased new rear spring coils for my 2003 325 I. I am planning to re-paint them with a few coats of rust-oleum paint to stop any rust that may form. My old springs broke after rust penetrated the paint. Any thoughts or ideas? :facepalm:

    Already tried the search function, this problem seems to be slightly different than what most people have. 2001 330xi w/ 96k The issue is that on a cold start (35F the other day) the car will shudder while driving until the engine heats up (cruisin at about 30 mph in 3rd gear at 2000rpm...

    Allright, I've read through a whole lot of threads to try and figure out what's going on with my 325. It's actually pretty sad to read how many similar problems we all have, can you imaginge how much money the dealer's are making on the many thousands of people who blindly take them in for...
