Hi, I had this exact same thing happen yesterday to my car. Tried it after sitting overnight and all is well. Did you have any recurrences or end up doing anything to remedy? Thx.

Great to hear. Funny- my tire shop originally recommended these to me, but I insisted on the DWSs given their popularity on our Xs. Yes- mileage is another thing. I could not imagine a smoother,...

Hey Fred,

The shops I dealt with never opined on what they thought the issue was. They would balance them out 0/0 and after one drive, they would all be off again. To me, that sounds like...

**update**

This weekend I had all 4 tires dismounted, rotated 180*, remounted and rebalanced, putting them back on in the same orientation on the car. The shop noted there are no bent wheels except the one...

Thanks much for your reply. I'm leaning towards there being an issue with the tires and/or their placement on the rim. I may just try and swap them out for Michelins or another comprable tire. ...

I recently replaced my Bridgestone runflats with Conti DWS (18" wheels). First off, much smoother and quieter ride. They are much more forgiving over bumps. Car is a bit "mushier" though, likely...

I hear ya. I can't wait to see how it rides with a more reasonable tire. I recall how heavy each of the Rfts were on my 5-series. I can only imagine the added weight with the higher sidewall of an...

Valvetrain Noise on Startup?

In my search for "peace-of-mind," I'm wondering if anyone else notices valvetrain noise/ticking upon a cold start for not even a second before the oil pressure builds? I was advised by my SA...

Gotcha. Thanks for the reply. I've seen calipers that even come "loaded" with pads ready to be bolted on, so perhaps that will assist my efforts of getting new pads and rotors.

Cheers

Front Caliper Hanging up on 07 X5

Hi everyone. I dropped off my 07 X5 (3.0) today to have my front brakes looked at. This weekend, the right front caliper was hanging up. Enough that the car would not roll on a hill in neutral. I...

Thanks. I'm past the 4/50K, and under the CPO warranty right now. Doesn't sound like I can even opt for the BMW "Gold". I guess I'll go aftermarket if anything.

Indeed, very weird. Strange that BMW would not engineer the rear Ebrake to be fully engaged prior to releasing the front brake hydrolics, which would presumably eliminate any "slip". I am, however,...

Parking slip when turn-off & remove key?

After setting the electronic P-Brake, does anyone else's X5 slip for a split-second when shutting the car down and removing the key? Just want to see if this is normal.
