Retrofit Apple CarPlay to a 2013 328i

Ok, in truth, I made it much more difficult than needed. Thereís no need at all to remove the trim around the console and I think you can install without removing the glovebox; I just couldnít figure...

F30: Wear and tear parts that will potentially break?

By coincidence, I installed an oil catch can last weekend, and got to know the EGR hose. You can buy a new one from BMW, but you can also remove the old one and cut the tubing away from the ends and...

New member looking to buy used 4 series

Tough question!
Genuine BMW extended warranties are very expensive. But itís hard to know if a third-party warranty is worth the paper itís printed on.

One thing to avoid: Powertrain warranties....

Why? If the rotors arenít unevenly worn, grooved or worn below the minimum size, they donít need to be replaced.

I think itís high but Iím not certain.

I bought a similar car a few years ago for $42K, but it was a 2014 435 (bigger engine) with 14,000 miles. It didnít have the MSport package, but for sure...

Dealership quoted me 4700 dollars worth of maintenance. Are these reasonable?

Yeah yeah yeah... but $1,100 labor for changing pads and rotors on all four wheels is very excessive.

ECS has the BMW-branded parts:
Front rotors: $340
Rear rotors: $212
Brake pads front and...

$550 would be nonsense.

You can look online for brake repair costs and nowhere will you find dealers who charge $550 labor per axle to replace pads and rotors. Dealer shops typically charge $250...

A set of rear pads and rotors from ECS Tuning cost $250 - $300.

$550 labor to put them on? Taking my time, working very slowly, it wouldnít take me two hours in my garage.

For $600 I could...
