    I have a 2001 330xi and while driving it I lost power to the wheels and had it towed to a mechanic. He is trying to diagnose the problem and he told me sometimes the transmission works and sometimes it doesn’t. You’ll shift it into park and you’ll hear a grinding noise like it’s trying to shift...

    Hi all, Another important question from me trying to get my XI ride smooth again. And this is something that I have on my mind for a while and talked with several mechanics about, but that was inconclusive, for some reason it only came to my mind now to ask you guys.

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to run a set of staggered style 67 m3 wheels on my 2003 325xi wagon. I've done a lot of research already and I've gotten mixed reviews about whether it can be done with out ruining the transfer cases. So first off the wheels fits perfectly fine the car, I did about 15...

    I have a vibration/hum that is always present, but when I hit 40mph the harmonic is so loud that it's almost a deafening roar! It's low enough in frequency to be impossible to locate from inside the car. So I can't tell if it's coming from the front, middle, or back, and the kicker is that it's...

    Hello everyone, I wanted to know which direction the drain plug is thread on the xi's transfer case ( I already freed the fill plug). I suspect the fluid has never been changed at 165xxx miles so needless to say the nut is firmly set and the last thing I want to do is break it. So do I turn...
