Quite serious and they come with the oil change kits too. Changed it last weekend without issue, but it's still a ridiculous design. The whole damned car is made of plastic to squeeze every last...

Dealer left hose disconnected. How bad is this?

In February Mrs. Lee had her cracked oil pan replaced under warranty at the local dealer. I haven't opened the hood since and went to do an oil change today. This is what I found.

Yes, definitely using the right size. And since the oil change kits come with a new drain plug, probably because BMW expects them to not last through an oil change, I even double check fitment on...

Yes, I have been buying car parts online since the beginning. But, because this car has a plastic oil pan and plastic drain plug, I'm wondering if it's safe to replace the OEM plug with a steel one....

330i wagon alarm goes off randomly.

This is a real pain. And it's not me butt-dialing the key fob in my pocket. It has happened several times when my key fob was in my gym locker hundreds of feet from my car. Car alarm just starts...

Can I replace the cheap plastic oil drain plug with a steel one?

I don't think I've ever changed the oil in Mrs. Lee's X1 without destroying the drain plug, since I like to dump the oil when the engine is piping hot. Of course, the hex wrench just twists in the...

The 328i looked new and had 28k miles when she bought it in 2010, but was not listed as a CPO. The dealer was kind of shifty on why it wasn't CPO, but they threw in an aftermarket warranty as part...

Her 2008 328i coupe was around $7500 between a/c, control arms and some engine stuff. I forget exactly, as it's been a while. But when the a/c died for the second time in three years and the...

I DIY all non-warranty maintenance and repairs, most recently a busted foglight on the X1. But I won't own a modern Bimmer out of warranty, not for one day. Mrs. Lee's last two Bimmers had around...

It's a 330i, not 320i. I did not buy or finance the warranty, though I have no doubt some of it was built into the price. The car was a dealer demo/loaner, so it had never been registered to a...

I can live with this. Been thinking it over and won't be disappointed to keep this car. I really like it. I just hate driving it into the ground.

I won't sell if I'm underwater. But that's the question. Per the KBB and NADA, I am underwater. Per Autotrader and eBay, I have some equity. If I could get out for even money, I'd grab a cheaper...

I always replace it because I always destroy the old one, trying to get it out. I change oil when the car is piping hot, so as to get the maximum amount of grime out. Sticking an Allen bit into a...

Market value vs. book value on my car. WTF?

My job situation requires a cheaper car I can beat up and pile miles on. Book value looks like $26k'ish, but I'm seeing them for mid-$30s online. My car isn't real common, so I know it won't appeal...

I have the same problem. Fuse is fine, even put a meter on it to test continuity. Radar detector won't turn on though. What else can this be?

Spark plug change nightmare.

Still irate over this one and am probably done with BMW forever, after seeing how much cheap, brittle plastic makes up the bulk of this car. Anyway, I went to change the spark plugs on Mrs. Lee's...

Yes, and I stated so earlier in the thread. Everything worked fine for a month or two after I replaced and reset everything. Then this latest yellow light came on two weeks ago.
