OP LeighL, curious as to how those Cooper Zeon RS3-A are doing for you? I'm needing a new set of rubber shortly and Pep Boys has my 235/50/18 size priced at $127 less a 10% coupon less a $70 rebate...

there's a good chance the rear hatch noise you think is there is actually the sunroof. These sunroofs are notorious for making noises over bumps. To rule out the sunroof as the culprit, pop the...

I seriously doubt someone repainted this car and likely its an error. Like the last post says, run the vin to determine the original color.

Re: Transmission fluid flush

Why do you say that with so much conviction? Mine was done at a BMW indy shop and have had no issues. I'm not advocating either way, but you seem to have a very strong negative opinion. Care to...

Re: Is BMW CPO warranty transferable?

Surprising that BMW NA has a different answer than the BMW dealers. It's pretty cut and dry if the car, based off the VIN, is still under CPO coverage. If you really like the car, you should get...

Re: Is BMW CPO warranty transferable?

I'm pretty sure that once a BMW is CPO it retains the CPO 6/100K warranty regardless if its re-sold person to person or re-sold person to dealer to person. You should get the VIN and call any BMW...

Yeah you need to change the Subaru timing belt once every 100K miles, but that's the same in a bunch of cars. My view of this is you change it once in the life of the car. Not that many owners are...

If it's not leaking then it's probably just a little bit low. Add a small amount of coolant and that should keep the light off.
