Copy of email to [email protected] by Julian Edge
Sirs I am writing to you to explain the reasons behind my bitter disappointment with BMW. In April 2001, I purchased an 'Approved' 318i from a dealership near High Wycombe. The vehicle was originally manufactured in 1996 and was clearly well cared for, having a full service history with the...

ABS light is on by Terry Pinnell[_3_]
I have a 1996 N-reg BMW 328SE Auto. Its ABS light is coming on and staying on while driving. However, using the CHECK button on the computer panel displays 'Check Controls OK'. I haven't been able so far to test it out on a suitable surface, but should I assume it's broken? If so, is a repair...

Engines by dizzy
So... are the lovely BMW 6's going to be replaced by turbocharged 4-bangers? I'm sure the bigger/higher-end ones will still have the turbo 6 or an 8, but the 3-series that most people buy, may be going to 4. Lighter and more efficient, you know...

Z4 M vs Boxster S vs SLK 55 by RichAsianKid
Which of the above is the best roadster? What do people think? Here's a Russian article. Can anyone translate this. http://bmw.carclub.ru/articles/allarticles/0000004340/ I'm not sure which one I'd choose. I probably lean towards the Z4 M, but Boxster S has probably better handling. Recently...

What I want vs. what the reality could support by AD[_2_]
Call me a pervert, but I want a V8, around 2.0 liters, AWD layout with rearward bias and the seats that have lateral support on one hand and in which you could move in the other. Lack of static electricity discharges is a plus. Let's see, 55 profile tires for summer on R15 or R16 and around 60 on...

I don't like electric assist stearing. by grinder
I have had my Z4 since November and normally drive it on weekends. My everyday vehicle is a 4Runner. I can see where if one drove the Z every day one could get used to the understeer of the electrical assist. But it feels sluggish to me and I think could contribute to accidents. That almost...

Considering a BMW - A Few Questions by BRH
After driving Subarus, Toyotas, Hondas and yes - a Chevy, all my life, I'm finally at the point that I can afford (and want) to step up to a new "luxury" car. However, I still want to find the best overall deal (ie - bang for the buck). That's just my nature, I guess. I'm just getting started...

How good IS BMW's 6 cylinder engine? by No Name
I'm thinking of buying a 2006 or 2007 3 series. I was wondering what the consensus is around here about BMW's engines. I had a bad experience with my current car, an Audi 1.8 turbo, and don't want to go through that again. I've heard good things about BMW's 6 cylinder motors. How do you...
