Hello fellow bimmer owners,

I am new to this forum and to bimmers. Love my 08 528i!

Couple questions though, first when in idle I feel a vibration and vibrating noise, is this normal? Sometimes louder than others but when I accelerate it is no more.

Also when I am at a complete stop, then release the brake I sometimes feel a slight jump, any insight on what this may be?

If this is covered in other threads pls let me know, I tried searching but no luck.

Thanks in advance!!

Welcome. Is the noise comming from inside the cabin? If so, could be a loose panel or somthing. Turn your car on in your drive way and search for the cause of the noise. Not sure what the jump could be.

I had a similar issue (slight jump after releasing break). There was some recall work to be done for my 08 535 xi. Might want to check with dealer.

There is a bulletin out that address a vibration. It has to do with the exhaust hanger that bolts to the rear of the transmission. I had the same problem as you are experiencing, unfortunately I had to tell the BMW dealership about the bulletin after they tried telling me there was nothing wrong with the car.

Congratulations! I'm sure it can be corrected. Did you buy it as a Certified pre-owned BMW?
If not buy an extended warranty package.
