Lol.. I know, im best at working on the oldies..
All i know is i hit a bump- nothing out of the ordinary, and it feels maybe like a sway bar, but ends up all over the road when i speed up. Should have stuck with a ford . haha. Its what i know..

What is the mileage on your BMW? I also have an '08 328i that actually started behaving like this about two weeks ago. I have had a friend drive it while I drove behind to see if I could spot anything that looked out of the norm. I honestly didn't see anything except that it subtly appears to be leaning toward the left as if there were something heavy on only the driver side. My guess is the shocks and struts. Do y'all think $1,600 is a reasonable quote for replacement of front and back?

Naw. Knock about $500 off for Koni FSD's and say good bye to pothole explosions. Caution! They're specifically designed for Sport suspension and won't do well w/o.
