    Long time lurker here. Here's the deal: - Bought a 528i with xdrive at auction - Car would usually get the three lights (4x4, abs, dsc) whenever it was started - Replaced actuator motor. (Note that the replacement motor was some kind of brand new unit from China with no brand name, so it is...

    I have been searching these forums high and low to figure out WTF was causing these lights. Many of the forums led me to believe that there was something wrong with the battery or electrical system.

    I've been struggling with what seems to be a pretty obscure issue for quite a while now. After battling with some error codes on my 08 BMW 528xi (thread can be found at http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=758175), I was about ready to give up on troubleshooting the problem when...

    I have a 2008 528xi and I recently started getting the SOS malfunction warning. I don't subscribe to the BMW Assist service, so I don't really care if it works any longer. It's just annoying seeing the light every time I start the car. Bluetooth works fine and nothing else appears to be...

    We test drove a 528xi 2008 with only 32k miles! It looks as though it were in a time capsule for 8 years. We love it, however while driving slow it lost power with a slight jerky motion during the test drive. We still want it. What should we expect for potential repairs to this symptom? The...

    I just got back from a family reunion in Charlotte. Most of the way I used the Active Cruise Control, and it worked great. There was one time on the way back that the air pressure from a truck just to my right caused the collision alert to go off. It was a beautiful drive up, lots of family...

    For $2,295 I can upgrade my free maintenance program for an additional 2 years or 50k miles (making it free for 6 years or 100k). Does this extend the warranty also or no? I plan on driving probably 15k mi per year, so i'd get to 50k before the 4 years are up. Would I spend more than $2,295...

    I've had my heart set on a 2012 528xi for some time now. When i went to the dealer to testdrive, he asked me if i tend to keep cars forever, which i do. He then went on to say that german cars are usually good up to 100k miles, but if i'm going to be keeping my car for more than that, than...
