    Bought my first car 2 Weeks ago. It is a 318Ci with N42 engine. The problems started the first day. My current problem is that the car feels like it has 30 HP less then it should. It builds RPM, doesn't stutter, and has great gas response, but just doesn't go. It is my first N42 and I don't know...

    So today I did my check up on my car usually checking the oil, coolant level, ect. But what I noticed today is two problems, I’ll start with the first.

I've tried unplugging the head unit completely and leaving...

    Hello guys! Recently I bought a really nice and well kept E46 touring which has xenon lights. One of the headlights had a pretty nice white light while the other was slightly yellowish. I assumed the bulbs are different, so I bought a set of two expensive genuine Osram bulbs (both sold as a...

    When I first turn my 330CI on it turns on fine but no matter what gear I'm in if I'm below 2500 RPMS I have to use quarter throttle otherwise the car starts to lose revs and the car starts to shutter. After about 5-10 minutes, however, the car goes into limp mode. When I turn the car off and...

    Hi, I drive a 2005 325xi w/ 66k miles and recently there has been a loud thud coming from the driver side engine bay. The noise lasts about a minute after I turn off the car and thud’s about every 2-3 seconds. I’m not sure if this is related or not but my steering wheel has been shaking...

    First post so bear with me... 330ci The strange thing is that with the switch set to either side the controls only adjust the driver-side mirror. You'd think with the switch set to the driver side that would work and switched to passenger mirror nothing would happen but no, still driver-side...
