    A security officer in the building I work in (when not socially distant) turned out to be a long-time BMW enthusiast, and we've been talking about him getting a good used BMW to replace his Focus...

    Check the Calendar of Events at the bottom of the home page. The 2019 DIY schedule just went up.

    I've noticed that DIY events tend to take a bit of a break at the beginning of the year, but I'll be very surprised if they don't start up again around April. Very few DIY events have a specific...

    Do you already own the tires and just need them installed or do you need to buy them as well?

    Are you a Costco member?

    Schmiedmann has it for 40.83 (plus shipping from Denmark...)

    Since I just got e-mail from Bimmerfest reminding me that there will NOT be a Bimmerfest East this year, and saying there seems to be lot of confusion about this, and telling me to please NOT show up...

    The gas struts that lift the tailgate of my 2011 E91 LCI gave out when I tried to open the gate to load nine computer displays, two laptop computers, and one desktop computer. On last week's hottest...

    It worked for me a few minutes ago.

    The page also has a speedometer error calculator. Unfortunately, BMW just adds 3 MPH to all speeds (lazy AND annoying!), so the Nokians will only get me to perfect accuracy at roughly 81 MPH. Then...
  15. Will 0.9" taller tires fit on a stock E91 xDrive?

    I don't need new snow tires this season (the Blizzaks still have plenty of tread left) but I'm the kind of guy who will check what's available anyway.

    MaLColM (my 2011 E91 xDrive) has 225/45R17...
  16. eBay. Never bought there before. Any tips? Safe to buy torque wrench?

    The subject pretty well sums up my situation.

    I need to start building up my tool collection so people will stop looking at me that way when I ask to borrow tools at DIY events. One of the things...
  17. Drat: BMW issues two recalls for wiring that overheats, melts, and catches fire.

    I apologize if this is the wrong place for the following message but I couldn't think of what might be a better one. I also realize club management probably already knows this, but just in case...

    I don't know whether they qualify as convertible top fixing geniuses or not, but I've had excellent experiences with Scandinavian Import Servicenter. They took care of my Volvo for a decade (and got...

    I'm more than twice that old, but my car is only six years and four months old... But you have to be 65 to be considered a classic human... Maybe if I tuned myself...

    Better-working cable for my iPhone 6?

    Here's a question that's been bugging me for awhile:

    I've been using a standard Apple USB<->Lightning cable to connect my iPhone 6 to my iDriveless-but-BlueTooth-capable E91. This "works" in that...
