    Default Good BMW Specific Forum

    Just picked up a 3 yr old 5 series for the wife and figured I might as well join a good forum.

    What's the best E60 5 series forum out there?

    No way, Bimmerforums and Bimmerfest are the best. Hands down better than those other two mentioned.

    Bimmerforums has more traffic, but Bimmerfest has a little less BS.

    ProjectTechnik is only good for local content.

    Ok I will join Bimmerforums and Bimmerfest too.

    I am on Audizine/Passat World/VWVortex and they all are good for specific things.

    I am sure that the BMW ones are similar. What is the VW Vortex of the BMW world?

    I agree, been on Bimmerforums and Bimmerfest for awhile now and I have met a few locals through those two forums. As long as you're not a douche canoe there is always someone willing to help out.

    ProjectTechnik is pretty good for the marketplace, and they seem pretty friendly, but being local not as active, might take sometime to get responses.

    Bimmerpost has a few specific subforums which are decent. My old one being Zpost.com/forums
    "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side"

    Bimmerforums... pretty much all the info you'll ever need.

    If you need parts (which of course you will) Pelican Parts and GetBMWParts are the best prices and both are reasonably quick.

    Isn't Maxbimmer pretty dead lately? I know DTM Power has been taken over with spam. I have both the Bimmerforums and Bimmerfest Apps on my iPhone. Makes it easy to search for stuff on the go.

    I do like ProjectTechnik. Good group of guys and willing to help out of needed.

    Couple others not yet mentioned:
    UnitedBimmer.com
    Bimmerwerkz.com
    Koenigsegg, what started as a dream just blew your doors off.

    I buy almost all my Audi stuff from ECS tuning and they now carry BMW parts too. Is Pelican / getBMWParts better?

    It's not a "toy" car, its my wifes DD so I want all OEM parts, not looking for red anodized hose clamps etc. These sites the standard for parts?

    What about "Vag-Com" for BMW is there such a thing?

    Coding VW/Audi is pretty easy with it and you can change annoying things like the seatbelt buzzer, remove the required double fob click to unlock all 4 doors, auto windows up on keyfob lock etc.

    I want to do all this with the BMW including disabling the retarded tire pressure sensors.

    For E60 specific forums, the most comprehensive is by far http://5series.net/. Anything you could ever imagine E60 related, the members on there have discussed it all.

    I've been a member since 2005 when I purchased my E60. DIY guides written by members who show you how to install the M-Tech kit, replace a faulty diversity antenna, wheel offsets when purchasing wheels, discuss iDrive software updates, etc.

    Certain members have full subscription to the BMW TSIB and will post them up if you ever want to disassemble anything, or need to know a specific part number.
