I've been in a 2011 335 dealer loaner for a few weeks (don't ask...) and I can honestly say that the thing I miss the most from my 2012 328 is the HUD. Well, maybe that and all the BT...

Well I think a call to BMW NA is probably a bit closer. After a week at the dealer I'm no closer to a fix. They replaced the bearings on Friday which did not solve anything. The word today is that...

Thanks for the comments. I got an email from the dealer's workshop technical manager who said he's in contact with BMWNA and now has tests he has to perform. I can't say I have any idea what that...

I've been lurking in the forum for a while as my F30 has the steering vibration issue. After a road force balance and adding weight to the front rims, I'm still having the problem. I went back to...

So I thought I'd post a quick update. The B pillar was replaced under warranty, however the sloppy installer scratched the crap out of my passenger door. He also did not fully seat the rubber trim...
