    Very strange issue I'm having that I hope you fine folks can shed some light on. Out of the blue, the Trunk stopped opening either via the trunk release button in the interior OR the trunk handle button. Oddly, the trunk still opens via the keyfob (although I have to be standing near it to open...

    So i have a 2003 330xi and Ive had a system running lean code for a while now, Ive changed the DISA, MAF, both o2 sensors for bank 2, fixed a vacuum line going from intake to fuel pressure regulator, and spark plugs but still running lean. Can anyone help or know why it’s running lean?

    My 2003 325xi's coolant light has recently been turning on and off, I've noticed that the coolant tank's bob has been at the min. every time I go to start the car but quickly goes up to max with a small amount of water added to it. The temp gauge is balanced and doesn't ever move past or below...

    Hi I have a 330xi that I eventually want to turbocharge with about 100-150hp increase if possible as I still want to be able to daily drive it as well. The reason I am asking about the bottom mount is because I still want AC if possible and also I am unsure if the difference with the subframe...

    Hey, so my pump just went out took it to BMW, and got charged 1200 just to look at it 😔. Guy told me it was 9 grand for them to do it, he said to take it to a speed shop and look at a manual conversion. So everywhere else they charge like 6 Grand on the east coast around NY. I would just get...

For the past two or so years I have had this issue with my rpm’s dipping about 200-300 rpm on acceleration usually when at lower speeds around 20-40mph and around...

    Hey guys. I recently swapped a b30 into my 325 (everything necessary has been swapped) and put on a ‘performance’ b30 tune and I’m having issues getting it to run smoothly. The flash was supposed to replace the b25 values with some for the b30 and take care of my sap and rear o2 delete. When I...

    Salutations, Ya'll. I just bought my first BMW about a week ago for $2k. 2005 325i with a M54B25 engine that had a misfiring problem. 116k miles, no rust, near flawless body with only a few manageable chips and scratches, and so-so condition on the interior. When I picked it up and inspected...

    Hi ! I've been using BMW scanner 1.4 for a bit now, but I still don't know if those Shadow codes are still current problems or are they are just a history ? Can't delete them and they are there for like 2 years now ( since I bought the car ). Thanks !

    So hi ! I own my E46 1999 323i 2.5l 5spd for 2 years. When I bought it, it was 320i, but it was really jerky and I overheated it, because the fan didnt work. I bought a new engine with 190k kms on it. 323 2.5l. It also had jerky acc. but not that insane one like the old 320i. I changed the MAF...
