  1. The New LCI Facelist of the BMW X1 SUV is a great compact SUV. Here is a test drive video from German Autobahn Highway POV drive with top speed, acceleration and sound:
  2. https://youtu.be/3JWd7VXhEvM A quick look at the 2019 BMW i8 coupe in London
  3. My car started smoking from the catalytic converter which smelled like oil was dripping onto it and smoking from back of the engine so I figured my valve cover gasket needed to be replaced I took everything off put the new gasket on and started to tighten the valve cover back to the cylinder head while I was tightening it I heard a crack noise before I could even get the screw tight onto the cover and block sounded as if the plastic of the cover was cracking or something after I had put everything back together and started it up to see how it sounded there was a clicking noise comping from the left side of the engine sounding under the valve cover every couple seconds cut the car off went in the house a couple hours later came back outside and all my oil was under my car, was the cracking sound something else possible cracking in the block or maybe I put something on wrong a friend was telling me it could be my oil pan or the gasket to the oil pan I’m hoping not and it’s just something minor on my part I forgot to do I know this is pretty long but if anyone know anything that it could possibly be that I might have done wrong plz let me know I have a trip to NY on the 30th end need to get this fixed ASAP thanks.!!
  4. Hello! I am making a racing game and now I am interested in few parameters of a specific car - BMW Z4 M Coupe. I am using it for testing my physics wrapper and now I need to get few parameters. 1. I need the normal weight distribution of that car between rear and front. This value is needed in %. 2. I need stock suspension parameters of this car: spring force and damper force. My suspension model doesn't take in any other values assuming that it is not damaged;) If anybody can get those parameters for me, I'd be really happy:)
  5. Hi all, As the title says, I've got a fair few cars in mind for my next buy, the issue is - I want to make sure its worth it. I currently drive a 2012 Ford Focus Zetec S 1.0 - 125hp manual (on HP) as my first car, and have been driving for over 2 years now. After putting around 60k miles on it, I have noticed that it does not feel as quick, or as smooth as I once thought it was (Due to driving experience, not mechanical faults) and I'm looking to upgrade. My top choice right now would be the 218d auto, as its cheapest on insurance, cheapest and cheapest on PCP (I'm looking to go down PCP route now knowing how quickly I get 'bored' of what I'm driving, got 'bored' of my current car after a year, though I do still love it), however I do want it to be a rather significant upgrade, and the 218d only seems to have 30 odd more horsepower. My question is, would the fact its an auto cause it to feel significantly faster than my car? For example the 0-60 of my car is 11.3 seconds, but do I do it in that? Probably not haha- whereas the 218ds 0-60 is 8.2 seconds, and its more likely that I'd be able to achieve close to it due to it being an auto. My next question is, if it would not feel significant, would an older 225d or a even older C220 be worth the jump, considering it would be around £100 extra a month in insurance? (I'm lucky enough that a car is my only monthly necessary outcome, so am happy spending the extra, but obviously want to avoid it if possible). I have factored in convenience, economy etc, just after the performance aspect, with this, a 90hp fiesta and a 108 being my only I don't have much experience with 'nicer' cars haha If you have any other sub 8.5 second (0-60mph), coupe/saloons, feel free to advise! Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi everyone today I'm going to talk about the 5 most expensive cars in the world. I used a YouTube channel and a few other websites to find out more about this. 1.1963 Ferrari 250 GTO 1964 Won the 250 GTO Tour de France Automobile Award - Ferrari's ninth consecutive year winning the competition. Only 36 of these cars were manufactured between 1962 and 1963; At an incredible $ 70,000,000, it was the world's most expensive Ferrari special and won not only at the Tour de France but also at Le Mans. At a top speed of 174 mph and a top speed of 0-100 mph (0-60 mph) in 6.1 seconds, its stats certainly do not please current car enthusiasts alone. However, in the ’60s it was the fastest in the world - now decades later it remains the most expensive car in the world with a long shot. 2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $ 18,700,000 In 2019, Bugatti made a brilliant brand decision when it unveiled its latest supercar. Instead of a fancy introduction and name, the French producer chose a restrained, minimalist and instantaneous title: La Voyager Noir. The black car. No other details are required. With more details, this beautiful vehicle is no surprise: it features a hand-carved carbon fiber shell, a 1500-horsepower quad-turbo W16 8.10L engine, and acceleration. 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 2.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 420 kph (260 mph) and its overall performance is precisely designed by the world's most famous automaker to build the world's most powerful car for decades. 3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta Sonda was the first car to come out of the Pagani Automobile Auto House. Years ago, Huawei should have stopped production to its advantage. Instead, Pagani has released various special editions of the Sonda. This was named the Sonda HP Barchetta - Barchetta - because, to Horatio Pagani, it was similar: in Italian, ‘small boat’. Its frame is made entirely of carbon fiber and zip for an ultralight body, a fast feel; It is blue in color, has minimal wind coverage, and is about 21 inches (0.5 m) at its highest point. Unfortunately, the most expensive car you can not buy is the Pagani Sonda HP Barchetta. Only three vehicles have been produced so far with this unique, special version of the Sonda. When last sold, one of these vehicles went for $ 17.6 million. Its acceleration is 0-60mph or 0-100kph in 3.4 seconds. The Sonda HP Barchetta can reach top speeds of 355 km / h or 220 miles per hour. 4. Bugatti Centodieci Bugatti's 2021 Centodic will be even more unique: only 10 of these luxury hypercars will be sold. (Despite the high price, everyone has already found a satisfying buyer.) Bugatti, already a well-known brand for its unique body work and luxury amenities, has tried to give Centodic everything it can remember. With the 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16, it may not be the fastest Bugatti currently on the road; But it is the fastest. Along with this car, Bugatti pays homage to the EB110 (or ‘CentoDC’), a supercar made in the early 90s. The car did not have time to run as expected. This car will help with that, saving performance and luxury. The Bugatti has a top speed of 0-62 mph (or 236 km / h or 379 km / h - 2.4 seconds / second - which is clearly less than the Chiron, but this Hypercar has its modern aesthetic. 5. Bugatti Divo Bugatti's reputation for luxury, luxury supercars continues with the next two cars in our rankings - starting with the 2021 Divo. The Bugatti Chiron is so successful that it has a few features similar to the Divo car that closely follows it. However, the Divo has a more exotic look and is more unique. Only 40 Divos are manufactured and sold. Everyone has already spoken. Its upgrades include better suspension, a lighter frame for higher speeds, and newer fins. Inside is an 8.0L W-16 engine with four Divo turbochargers. As a result, the Divo has 1500 horsepower and can reach speeds of 0-100 miles per hour (0-62 miles per hour) in 2.4 seconds. Its high speed? 380km / h (or 236mph). In order to save as much weight as possible, Bugatti kept the comfortable luggage and information inside to a minimum. However, the steering wheel is made of soft forged suede and the blue and black aesthetics on the outside are also visible on the inside.

  7. One of the most frequent questions that many BMW owners have is how often they should bring their car in to be serviced. For the optimal functioning of your BMW car, it is very important that you have a regular schedule for performing routine maintenance. This allows you to fix minor problems that turn into major ones if avoided and that could result in your car being off the road for several days. Diligently keeping up with periodic maintenance will also boost the resale value of your car. Ideally, when your BMW is due a service, the intelligent maintenance system will notify you using the range of icons on the dashboard. Check the status of a list of options, including engine oil, front brake pads and vehicle check, and when they require maintenance. The following are the different types of services that are required to be checked in with: 15000 Mile service: This is called the “Safety & Oil Service” that BMW usually recommends that you do every 15,000 miles or 12 months. Your oil and oil filter will be changed and your vehicle will be inspected to make sure that it isn’t suffering from any fluid leaks. 30,000-Mile Service: After 30,000 miles, BMW recommends that a more thorough check of your car be done. This check is commonly referred to as the “Inspection 1.” It includes inspecting several components underneath your BMW, checking the tires and wheels, doing several kinds of verifications under the hood, and inspecting the body and interior. 60000-Mile Service: After 60,000 miles, BMW recommends that the “Inspection 2” be performed. This involves verifying all of the components in the first inspection (done at 30,000 miles), as well as doing additional inspection work. This includes checking the parking brakes, replacing all air filters, replacing the spark plugs, examining the flexible boots to see if they’ve developed a leak and inspecting the car body for signs of rust. 90,000-Mile Service: Once you’ve driven for 90,000 miles, for most models of BMW cars built after the year 1999, the manufacturer simply recommends that the “Inspection 1” be repeated again. This means that all of the components that were inspected and changed after 30,000 miles will be serviced again. Handing over the keys to your BMW can be unnerving, which is why our trained specialists are here to provide a dedicated service to ensure that your vehicle is running at optimum performance. Sunshine Auto is well known for its BMW workshop Dubai. Should any work need to be carried out on your BMW, our technicians will always provide you with the best BMW body repair in Dubai.

  10. Do you think that the car community/hooning culture is over represented in accident statistics? Why? What would you say in defense? What is more prevalent and why do you think we hear about it less? Im writing a research paper and would really appreciate some input!
  11. Converting your vehicle to wheel studs and lug nuts is a simple but highly effective work that can be completed in a few hours. Stud conversion offers an easier wheel mounting method, no more holding wheels a long time to align the bolts holes repeatedly, no more threading wheel hangers in and out which can be troublesome, no more worrying about scratching the brake calipers. Find more details from the passage. https://www.bonoss.com/portfolio-items/installation-case-wheel-stud-conversion-kit-on-bmw-5-series-f10-cai After install the stud conversion, the wheels are attractive and easier to change. https://youtu.be/LPczV1U7NKw A good choice for Audi owner but it's expensive and up to yourself.
  12. We will need to change brake pads after thousands miles of driving, and actually you can do that yourself without visiting the dealer’s. Doing it yourself also will save you a lot of money. Even if you're not interesting in doing this yourself, knowing what's involved makes it easier to understand what your mechanic tells you. I will use my 2013 BMW 320D E70 FL as example here, and a Topdon Artpad to do the brake pad matching(old tightness vs new one). My steps: 1. Ignition ON, but don’t start the engine. 2. Choose Brake Pad Matching module in Artipad. 3. Choose brand “BMW” 4. Tap on Manual Select 5. Tap on Brake Pad Replace 6. Choose 5 series 7. Choose 5’_GT(F07) 8. Now the display showing “ignition ON”, tap OK 9. Now we need to loosen the wheel cylinder, tap that option on screen, this is a very important step, you could only take off the brake pad after it gets loose. 10. Set parking brake OFF according to display prompt, then tap OK. 11. Step on brake paddle and press and hold parking brake button for 3s, check if your wheel cylinders are loose. 12. Ignition OFF for 30s before you actually change the brake pad, when you finish that, tap OK on screen. 13. Now we are ready to tighten the wheel cylinders, choose that option on screen. 14. Again, step on brake paddle and press and hold parking brake button for 3s and you can here the sound. 15. Set parking brake OFF till you here the sound again. 16. This is a repeated process, so step on brake paddle and press and hold parking brake button for 3s and you can here the sound. 17. Now the display saying that brake pad matching are succeed. It is very necessary to use a professional tool when replacing brake pad, it’s not a pure mechanical process, rather that just disassemble the wheel, it’s involving ECUs of car. Hope this illustration above could help you understand more.

    BMW 320i

    Hello. Need some advice from the person driving the BMW 320i. I wrote a review article for this vehicle. Can you tell me what would be better to add? Thank you
  14. In some cases that car will ask to do car window initialization, such as when you lift the window manually, auto lifting invalid, window moving choppily, and after replacing components. I used a Topdon Artipad to finish the process. First choose the car model, use auto scan or manually choose BMW-3 SEIRIES-F30 chassis And then enter FRM module->special functions->initialize electric window, the display shows initialization status of the four sides. Tap on each sides and choose OK to start initialization. Double confirm by press the window button to see if it works. If the car models doesn’t support this way on Artipad, there is another way to do that manually (for older car models). Press the window button the whole time till it totally closed.
  15. If you feel the car leans to one side, don’t doubt yourself, it’s possible, the car is indeed not balanced. Here I need to introduce a new concept -- EHC. The task of the self-leveling suspension(EHC) is to bring the vehicle ride height at the rear axle back to the target level if the load changes. The height sensors provide ECU with information on the heights of the left-hand and right hand sides of the vehicle. If the heights are outside the specified tolerances, the system intervenes using the air supply unit to set the nominal ride-level height. After replacing the sensors or when you feel car is leaning, we need to do readjust EHC. Notes: If the car is M/T, need to step on and release clutch pedal. Car stay still. Must use EPB For M/T, set it at N For A/T, set it at P It’s a E66 chassis in my case, and the tool name is in the comment. Steps: 1. Choose the correct model: BMW-7 series - 7`_E65/E66/E68 - chassis - EHC - Live data 2. Only choose 4 options to read live data: battery voltage(RR), battery voltage(LR), Deviation(RR), Deviation(LR). So that we could confirm that if the leaning is there and which side. 3. Go back to choose Service Functions - EHC - Adjust EHC, and then input tire size. (Tire size found on the tire, e.g. 185/65/R14, 14 is what we input) 4. Measure and input the height of both rear tire(from the button of tire to the button of wheel arch. 5. When it says adjust succeed, the car still need some time to change the height while driving, it would not change to the preset height immediately.
  16. In some cases, even when you have done the maintenance service, the service light still ON, and display the number of miles or amount of time until the next required service interval, so you would need to turn OFF it manually. While the process will vary slightly depending on the model, trim, and model year of your BMW, and my example here is BMW 5, F10. Preparation work: Step on and release the clutch if it’s manual transmission. Keep the car still Parking brake ON Shift to N for manual transmission Shift to P for Auto For turn on the service indicator yourself, you need a tool to do it. I use my Topdon Artipad. Choose Oil Reset---> 5 Series--->5`_F10/F11/F18, you would need to choose the correct chassis. Then in the software reset menu, there are options like engine oil, front brake, vehicle test, brake fluid, vehicle test date change and so on. I would use engine oil and vehicle test date change as example. Tap on engine oil--->yes, done !!! Tap on vehicle test date change, there will be a recommended date on screen, just input that date, and this is done. Is this just so fast and simple? You don’t need to drive to dealer’s to let them do this work and give them easy money.
  17. Hello everyone, I just got this tough task done and want to share my experience with you all. After replacing steering angle sensor, we need to code the steering angle, and then adjust the sensor. I used a Topdon ArtiPad to do this. Here below are my steps: 1. Coding/Program -> X series ->X3_E83 ->Coding 2. Choose corresponding system, e.g. LWS 3. Choose coding 4. Tap into special functions, enter LWS learning, tap OK 5. When the learning is done, it will show current steering angle=0.0 6. Ignition OFF, wait for 10s, ignition ON again, scan the system to read DTC, if the learning is succeed, DTC will be cleared.
  18. BMW F chassis Battery Replacement Steps There is a battery management module in engine system of BMW F chassis, if it monitor that battery has been serious aged or damaged, a DTC would be generated in engine system, you can only clear this code after replacing battery and "record" it. I have some pics when carried out the battery replacement and configuration, the tool I used is a Topdon Artipad. Here are my steps: 1. Manual ->vehicle brand->chassis->Engine,ECM->DME/DDE 2.Special function->battery->record replace battery 3. Tap on record replace battery, if you replace the same type and capacity, choose "same capacity", wait for 20s, it would prompt battery replacement was successfully recorded in DME/DDE. If you replace different capacity, choose "higher/lower capacity", and the same steps if you replace different battery type(chemistry), just choose the correct one, like AGM or lead acid, but it requires reprogram after replacing battery, BMW F chassis doesn't supported yet. After the record was done, clear DTC.If the DTC can't be cleared, the ECM-DDE/DME info and shows not supported. Anyway, it is quite simple to do the configuration/matching after replacing battery, I hope you will find this instruction helpful.

  22. The 2020 BMW X1, Maybe the bet compact premium SUV
  23. Hi guys, I'm a new member. I want to buy a BMW M4 via https://incacar.com/all/cars/bmw/m4/ but I´m a bit worried about that, just if they are reliable. Is there someone who knows them, or bought a car from them? What do you think about that? Thanks for answers.
  24. I’m currently driving a 2006 e60 525i at the age of 17. It has a few issues like oil leaks and some damaged body work. I can’t do much to the car without spending a lot of money. I’m thinking about selling it and maybe buying a Miata NA or NB because I want to start learning how to work on cars. Is it worth it?
