    e87 04 120i Blue/White Smoke

    Hey Team Our e87 04 120i has just majorly started smoking (blue/kinda white) on start up and while driving. Engine check light comes on and starts flashing, once the car is in park and idling the check light goes away. But if we leave it for a day of two it stops doing either.. No fault codes are staying up and every time we have taken it in it has stopped and ran fine. Its not using any water/no bubbles in radiator. Oil doesn't look milky from first inspection. Any Ideas? Was leaning towards valve steams but also possible piston ring failure? No major knocking sounds but is down on power even when its not smoking. It did start 'pinging' today how ever on start up... Am not driving the car atm until we have an idea of what is wrong.. Cheers Ace

    2008 BMW 116i (E87)

    Hi There, I have bought a second hand 2008 BMW 116i (E87), it has got options for navigation, climate, communication and entertainment when the main screen opens up. The issue here is I can not use communication or navigation option. Also, I am not able to get all radio frequencies. I know this question must have been asked a million times, I could not find any answer anywhere. I have checked online and the local Bimmer experts like auto gravity charges upto $800 which is out of my reach. Does anyone have any guidance which I can follow myself and fix these issues ? I have attached all relevant photos. Thanks in advance. Vinay

    New AKL member

    Moving over from Melbourne in October I was to start my new job at the end of Feb. I spent the whole month looking around for the 'right' car, finally I found one. The km's were a tad on the high side but for the price I couldn't turn it down. After some discussions with the previous owner and an AA check I flew down to Wellington and bought my first BMW, a 130i. I was amazed at how easy the car was to drive over long distances as I drove back that night (Although those run-flats are still giving my nightmares), I thought not having cruise control was going to be agony but alas I was stoked with it. Giz served me well, he made the 20 min commute to my new job with ease. I was having so much fun driving this little pocket rocket around and hearing that snarl of the 3.0L engine from the quad exhaust. I say 'was', because unfortunately after only 12 days of mate ship he was taken away from me. On the commute home from work, the truck following failed to notice myself and everyone else coming to a stop. I watched as the driver failed to pay attention, getting ever larger in my rear view mirror. I knew he'd never pull it up in time on the greasy road so I put my head back on the head rest and waited to be hit. Poor Giz sacrificed himself to let me walk away with only a concussion, I was devastated, I had my independence stripped away, a friend stolen too soon. I was also thankful, thankful that Giz held up so well in the crash that I was able to walk away. So it was settled, I needed to buy another Baby Beamer. So I did, today! I put the deposit down on a black 2009 manual 130i. Personally love the feel of the manual more than the Auto Giz was rocking around in. I'm sorry that I don't have any photo's yet of it and still thinking of a name, but when I take ownership later next week I'll be sure to update this post. I look forward to getting to know the community here and learning a bit more about E87's and BMW's in general. tl;dr - Flew to Wellington to buy a 130i. Had it 12 days, hit by a truck. So I bought another one.
