PAX5 is right. Very common issues that I've seen on just about every BMW. You can get both replaced, but get ready for it to happen again. I bought my 08 a little over a year ago, with about 12,000mi...

There is no buffing scratches out of a non painted bumper, without leaving a another kind of blemish. Wax is also REAL fun getting out of those surfaces. BMW seems to have caught onto this, and it's...

03/08 3.0 here. I'd sure like to know what causes the ticking. It's intermittent on start up, and doesn't always happen when cold. I'm embarrassed to drive it down the street, and can sometimes hear...

I have an 08 with 20,000 on it. Same issue with the steering wheel, it's intermittent. I haven't taken it in yet, but I suspect it has something to do with the battery issues. Strange things happen...

It happens in every BMW where that soft material was applied. Hopefully they aren't using it anymore. My Infiniti had the same issue. FYI, if and when the steering wheel starts peeling, if it's not a...

The factory ones aren't functional, at all, for adults. If anything, the added width makes it more difficult, as is quite often the case with these, pretty to look at, running boards. That said, I...

FYI, at least in my case, the trim that popped out was perfect. Just the integrated bumper clips were "shaved" off with the impact.

Sadly you are not alone. When looking for a good used X5, I came across many with this issue. I bought mine with 12,000 miles on it, and it came with one side popped out, better than both sides like...

FYI, I fixed my door hatch rattle with a few twists of electrical tape around the latch. Quiet as can be for the last few months.

That noise is enough to drive you nuts. It almost sounds as if a tire is going flat. My Saab 9-3 had the same issue. Both with newer tires. I'm thinking it just has something to do with them being a...

ultrasonic sensors peeling

Anyone have the same issue, or have a fix? I assume they aren't paint friendly. I have about 18,000 mi on the truck, and all but one of the rear sensors are bubbling and peeling. The front sensors...

I have the same loud "floppy" noise from my Bridgestone's at 18,000. Had the same issue with tires on my Saab 93. Drove me nuts. They kind of sound like snow tires going flat..rrrrr.

I gave up, tried everything. It just wouldn't take. I have a pretty old garage door opener, but my last 2 cars, an 08 Saab, and a 08 Infinity, paired the first try, go figure. Good luck!

Mine are quite loud at 18,000 miles. It may be a trade off, and you just need to decide what you want/need out of a tire. From what I've read, I'll be trying Continental Extreme DWS tire's the next...

Same problem here. Although the occasional chime and indicator lights are annoying, I don't really use it, so I haven't been in a hurry to get to dealer. I'll update when I get an answer.

I know what it looks like on the outside of the lens, that is caused by the elements. This is on the inside of the lens, and more than likely caused by the plastics used and the "fog" that it creates...

Just an update. We've had a VERY hot summer here in the Midwest. So far, my bumper has stayed straight as can be. I do my best to keep it garaged, and out of the sun however. You'd think that, of all...

Only you can be the judge so I'd recommend driving one. As for me, coming off of a smaller Infiniti EX35, I think the driving dynamics far exceed the Infiniti, for its size. German's engineer for...

The cause is poor design, plain and simple. It looks as if I'll be getting battery number 3 soon, with 16,000 miles on the car. I've never heard of such a thing. Don't go to the dealer for a new...
