Yikes. A transmission FLUSH? I encourage you to present this issue to the dealer who performed the work. Did they even attempt to talk you out of a flush, or is it--in 2020--that manufacturers are...

It's well known that the automatic trans in these vehicles is severely unequipped to handle high power output. Any orange gear light on the dash?

Buy it used or attempt to find it aftermarket. I assume a majority of the $1,500 is the new tank itself.

Don't try to fix the old tank, that's a wasted effort.

Unless the xDrive delete kit includes blockoffs for the transfercase, I don't see how it would eliminate a shaking issue. The axle is spinning if the wheel is moving. The only difference is whether...

A 6 cylinder twin turbo (or twin scroll) vs a 4 cylinder single turbo? Yes, you will be disappointed. Winter handling? You will be impressed.

Drive one at carmax.

2007 335i, gee I just can't imagine why you had constant problems :dunno:

OP, if you insist on a N54 powered 335i (I'm not suggesting you shouldn't consider it), then do nothing older than 2009....

Seems like a tough situation. I use my iPod, makes my life easier, and I certainly can't delete my entire song list in two button clicks.

If you want my two cents, scrap the concept of replacing it with a new engine. Parts and labor for a used engine from a independant mechanic will not even reach half of that price. It might be worth...

$1,700 for both front calipers, pads, and rotors. What a absolute joke. Get another estimate and don't return to that mechanic. Have both front pads/rotors replaced, and the sticky caliper. When the...

Before you go replacing it again, you did reset the code after replacement, correct?

I'm not going to listen to the video, but the water pump should only make a very minor electric whining noise. If you have the radio on, even on a very low setting, you wouldn't hear it (with the...

I'm with this guy, and siding with the dealership on this. Don't waste their time, use the free resources available to you.

You wouldn't want to pair two different left/right tires, but using a different tread pattern in the front vs the rear is not a big deal. Go with the RS3-G1 in the front, and keep your rears until...

Based on the fact that the N54/N55 doesn't even require a abornally high octane, I can't see a reason to daily drive with 93-94+ octane.

Whether or not you want to hear this, turbocharging a 328...

Probably the front bumper. If you feel under the bottom lip, you will feel the scrapes. That is usually the only place that scrapes on a car.

Exactly this. BMW dealerships are trash, stop using them. Find a better mechanic who stands by their repairs.

He answered your question as directly as possible. Leaks happen, be glad it is at 70k, not 30k-40k, etc.

I'm going to throw out a shot in the dark here and say it's completely unrelated. Sounds like it was recalculating the DTE. BMWs, or really any manufacturer in general, have never been fantastic at...

I'm not sure what you mean by the underlined portion. The 335i was produced until 2015(?), and the N55 is still in production. So I'm not sure what quantifies the "just the last year" portion. I have...

The model year has a significant impact on the answer to that question, as does the engine. 2007-2008 is a no go, I've had zero problems with my 2009 (N54). The whole N54 platform has a plethora of...
