BMW 530i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Replaced part for the code P0011...camshaft item.
the car it's going on is the 2003 530I, VIN# WBADT634X3CK31854. Thanks
When my 530i is parked outside overnight or when it is colder than 50 degrees outside it cranks over but wont start. When it warms up or sun comes out it starts up fine. The car runs fine otherwise, no codes come up etc. This has happened at least 10 different times and no one can figure it out!Could it be a dirty idle control valve? Please help! Thank you in advance!
I have 2004 530i only 120,000 miles. I just replaced the spark plugs about couple months.
Now the check engine light in on and I get the code P0306 Cylinder #6 Misfire, So I swapped the plug and the coil with Cylinder #1 and I still get the same code " Misfire Cylinder #6"
what else I should do?
car was bought new then given to me,nothing has been altered. Early morning car started then died after a few seconds (engine sounded normal),I tried to start again but this time sounded like when getting a compression test(sound like plugs removed). One BMW dealer tells me engine is NON-interference and the other dealer tells me it's interference. Please tell me for sure as I can afford repairs if non-interference(possibly do repair myself).IF DUAL VANOS operation failed w/no valve damage(non-interference),would engine quit start&sound like escaping compression,as vanos controls camshaft position????. Thank you very much and pray valves weren't damaged and I don't have to remove head to get completely machined. VIN: wbadt6343icf05573

When backing and turning while car is sitting still
My car runs perfect after a starter replaced but my Idrive system won't turn on. I thought it was the battery and took it out but that wasn't the problem.
It looks like the drain hose failed from my sun roof and the water drained into the passenger's floorboard, which has the high amperage fusebox totally corroded. the connections on the underside just fell apart and the connections on the top side are frozen with rust. This seems like it should be repaired for free under some kind of recall. I cant find the replacement parts. Please email advise of any options.

This seems like a design flaw that should be repaired for free under some kind of recall or something. I cant even find the replacement parts. Please advise me of any options.
Please help adapter if you can . Thanks!
Do it myself or take into shop for a 30 min task? As told by Precision Motor Works, Seattle.
The RPM shakes and a weird burning smell come in the car. The car although shakes some are saying it is the gear converter but I do not believe it as i lost power from the car as well it is not shown on the computer of the car.
rpm jump but car doesn't seems like it trying to accelerate when it jumps
