Mein Auto: 2007 328xi
Noise from front wheel after pothole

Just recently bought a 2007 328xi an i was turning into a parking lot an hit a pothole bottoming out the sound made me cringe. Now when i turn it makes a thumping noise an faster i am going the faster the noise. At first only seemed to make the noise when i turn left in front passenger wheel but started to make noise when i turn right but not as bad. So many things it could be im not to car savvy please help want to know what it is before i take it in so im not taken advantage of thanks.

I would go to a tire shop, have them take the tire inspected for damage, and look for broken shock mounts while the wheel is off

Goes to show: BMW 4WD does not mean off road. Personally I like Range Rover's 4WD; hate their reliability.

Bent rims normally feel like a vibration I thought. Don't ask me how I know.
