Take a look at your tire pressures, I believe the manual calls for 225 tires to have 32 PSI front and 36 rear. A lot of the time when you go to a dealer they set them all to 37 psi, which makes the...

You have the N52 engine, 3.0 liter straight six. It's the same engine on the e90 328i. Not a lot of performance mods, if you ask about that people will say you should have gotten a 535i / 550i.

Ok, see if you can find the very specific spot that is giving you trouble. I have had some luck with silicone spray and plastic on plastic or plastic on metal creaking.

My point was, they're telling the owner of a 535i that he has a N20 engine, a 4 cylinder engine that didn't appear until model year 2012 cars. That's as likely as my 528i having a V12. Who engine...

A BMW decoder says this about your engine:

Engine N54

Well, open the hood and see what's in there. N20 is a little four cylinder turbo. How many cylinders does your car have? Look at the intake manifold.

An N20 motor is BMW's new turbo 4 cylinder. Are you telling us you have a turbo 4 inside your e60 535i? That chassis never saw that engine. I don't think that could be possible.

I understand what you mean, our car is no 535i/550i, but it does daily driving and spirited driving quite well, and the inline 6 sings well when you wind it out.

So sorry to hear about that. Do you park outside or did it happen while you were out?
