  • Finally a true BMW on the channel, not a plastic crap. Just a tip for M20/M30 valve adjusments most of the time it is more reliable to shim it at the valve so when you adjust it it doesn't move the adjusment while tightening it. I'm sure Ninja has done it enough times to be able to do it from the first time everytime, but for us normal people it is very annoying to adjust the valve then assemble everything to have to adjust them again only because one of the valves moved while tightening.

  • When I saw the need of 2 specialized tools to take the radiator fan off i decided that the rest of my automotive interests will be bashing and convincing others to consider BMW a big fat full of propaganda POS who have done well in convincing the world that they're cars are not dumpsters on wheels with nice leather.

  • My son's work for huge tech firms in Seattle. They owned BMW's for years. M-3's, M-4s, M-5's. They all had to dump them. The cost of repairs was prodigious. Every time a service light went on it cost thousands. One designer son earns $200,000.00 plus a year and after he spent $40,000.00 in repairs on his M-3 ,after he spent $40,000.00 on the purchase price. He now drives a restored 1999 Honda Prelude,and a 1982 Delorean. He is perfectly happy finally.

  • Didt a BMW DPF change some time ago, normally you can take out the airfilt box and get access to the clamp on the turbo, but somehow BMW had made the airfilter box and val cover as one unit. What a pain in the Anaheims garden it was to get that clamp of and even worse to get the new one in. BMW lost there way after the M52 engine.

  • Takes me back to the days of the Opel VS BMW wars of the 80's in South Africa. The BMW 325 IS VS the Opel Kadett Superboss. I was a HUGE Tony Viana fan who drove the Winfield BMW and even cheered him when we were VIP guests with an Opel dealership. That was after BMW built the 325IS (2,7) engine to compete with the C20XE engined Opel. The BMW's sounded so sweet, but the Opel triumphed in the end. I later had an Opel with a C20XE motor and that thing was Uber fast, 270km/h (168mph) flat out, stock standard normally aspirated. The BMW was governed to 245km/h (152mph).

  • I've had one well known UK BMW garage try to con me out of a Turbo on an E61 535d. The issue? Cracked exhaust manifold. Sorry, mechanics not are rich because owners are morons. It's because they are cheating liars who'd sell their wives and children to get further in life. Was I pissed? You bet! A £1500 potential repair was £300 labour via a trusted mechanic + £100 in parts to repair. I will show a view to show what the issue was. The owner of the garage looked me in the eye and said 'your manifold' is fine. Thank God I checked it myself to expose that cheat. Garage for anyone wondering was Autobahn Halesowen. A BMW Car Club UK Sponsor for those wondering.

  • 86/89 M20 engines were prone to the cylinder head bolts snapping off - not very common but BMW changed to Torx stretch bolts in late '89 for a reason and it is worth fitting them. You can replace the existing hex bolts one by one with Torx in a diagonal pattern, takes about an hour or so all in. I had two cars that did it, a 1987 E28 520i (no damage) and a 1989 325i when the camshaft lobe punched the bolt head through the centre coolant gallery. That made a mess.
