E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: BMW318i (E46)
118i Rock Hard Brake

Hello!,

I've recently bought a 118i and have noticed that if the car is not used for 12Hrs + then the brake pedal is very hard to depress at startup......is this normal, and is this just a case of pressing the pedal hard to get the car started?

Many Thanx

Steve

It sounds like you're losing vacuum on the brake booster. There's probably a small leak somewhere. I would say this is not normal.
