I drove a 2003 325 to 115K miles and it still rode great, tire wear was perfect. Sure, I agree changing shocks earlier is a good thing, but I don't think I've ever changed out a shock/strut in any...

Thanks for the replies. I can't return the phone, it was a gift from my wife! I will talk to my dealer. My wife's old Jeep has 115,000 miles on it and it's about time for a new vehicle. Maybe I'll...

SAMSUNG Skyrocket Bluetooth

Finally bought a smartphone. My old, simple VU phone synched up to my car very well. I can't get this new Skyrocket Droid to synch. Granted, I've only tried twice. I'll keep working at it. Anyone...

Yep, had my key read and it's time for brake fluid service. BMW is picky about the brake fluid! Also had them look at my fog lamp assembly, and it's worse than I thought. They needed to order parts,...

Ah - Service! I didn't make the distinction between service and repair! I last had it in for service at 14,500 miles for oil change, etc. It could be brake fluid - the car is a 2009 model. Thanks...

Call from Dealer about service

My dealer called me a few days ago, and said that they were informed by my car that it needed service and to bring my key in to have it read. I only have 23 K miles on it, and none of the regular...

Good luck, Ma! Common sense tells me that your problem should be rectified. At the very least an honest, quality car company should stand behind a CPO. Let's see if BMW steps up to the plate. Can't...

Hang in there, Mafranz. From what I've read, I believe Salem might still come through for you and make it right. I can't wait to hear what you find out from the inspection tomorrow.
