I have the same car. The dealership wanted to charge me $155 to go into the computer and give me the passkey.

One of the techs just told me how to find it myself:

Inside the trunk, on the left side behind the DVD player, there is a box that sits at a 45 degree angle. Right above that box, there is a box that is shaped like a VHS tape. Unscrew that box and on the other side you will see bluetooth PK: and your four digit number.

That saved me $155 dollars and now I can talk hands free through my car.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

Cheers
Sean

It does not surprise me that you are burning a quart of oil if you are waiting for 15,000 miles to change your oil. I personally change my oil every 3-4,000 miles and think it is ridiculous that some auto manufacturers have maintenance lights that are set on 5,000 mile intervals. Simple fact of the matter is an oil breaks down with use, when viscosity goes down, its losing it's effectiveness to lubricate and keep things cool. I would be changing my oil at the absolute very minimum of once every 5,000 miles.

Good Luck

Any type of fluid leak is not normal. Especially engine oil.

What the best tires for 2007 bmw 750i


Per TireRack.com, there were four tire size options for a 2007 BMW 750i starting at 18 inch going to 21 inch wheels. You will need to know what size you car currently has and whether they are staggered (narrow front/wider rear) or the same front/rear. You will also need to know if they are "Run flat" or regular. The site has good testing articles and ratings of various brands. The Uniform Tire Quality Grade number rates tire longevity (higher number lasts longer 100= approx. 7,200 miles) and the letters are for traction (AA is best) and temperature (A is best).
Continental Extreme Contact DWS is available in your size works well as an Ultra High Performance All Season.

Starting using oil abt 125K miles, abt 1 qt per 1200 mi. Dealer recommended repl PCV valve and hoses which we did. Repair had no effect and car now using abt 1 qt every 800 miles. No leaks detected.


is the car smoking blue or is the oil leeking out ?

if the is consuming oil by buring it while driving the faults are either :

Valve seats / Burnt valves
Piston Rings
or sump compression which can force oil into the combustion chamber causing it to burn it and expel the burnt oil via the exhaust system.

Either way, its going to pretty expensive on a 2002 5 series.

I have a 2007 BMW 750i, when i start engine engine...


Good day.Your problem may cause a second things.st improper use of engine oil viscosity numbers, 2 low pressure in the lubricating system. In poor lubrication is needed to answer the question, a few deleted, and find out why these options: Suction basket is oil in order of entry is not blocked or distorted, and reduced oil flow?It is not clogged or restricted flow oil filter? Measure the device's real pressure oil pump provides oil and whether it is within the tolerances of the manufacturer? Determine whether or not clogged or otherwise restricted lubrication system in distribution channels of the engine? In the case where this all goes well then it will only be a faulty sensor lubricant pressure and still shows the "low pressure" in fact, it is good :-) The picture of oil system in your motor.fac423d.png

2006 BMW 530i with a slow/small oil leak.


Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

I'm considering buying a 2006 750i. I hear they may have problems with an expensive coolant leak repair neer 80k miles. is this true and do you know of any other "ticking bombs" type trouble?


The various system components controlling the climate control, and most of the other "bells and whistles" electronic controls are known to fail expensively. Some of the service techs around here joke that the "L" should be placed on the owner's forehead, if you know what I'm saying...
