    Hi guys I bought a 2012 BMW X1 almost 2 weeks ago for the first couple of days everything was good later on front right wheel started to squeak a little and it just got louder and louder. It was squeaking whether I'm going slow or fast ( highway speed ) also the car was pulling to the right and...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Can somebody please let me know what this could be. Getting a really bad grinding noise when I'm turning the wheel. More audible when in park. There are a lot of post on grinding noises. So I figure I would add a link for a vid. http://youtu.be/do6cxJrFJrk Let me know if u have any...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, I have a problem with my 2001 Z3 3.0 Roadster. It started to make creaking, popping, squeaking, sound from the front suspension. This happens when I go over a speed bump (10 kph) or when I turn right; sometimes when I'm park and I turn the steering wheel right does that but only 2 or 3...
  4. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I have a babied 2003 Z4 with 76,000 kms on it. Today I was advised by the shop that it requires new ball joints and bushings because they are worn ($1200). Is this normal?

  5. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)

I went to NTB (bad choice) and replaced the wheel and tire, I tried to get an alignment however they said they couldn't do it because there was something with my suspension. I didn't trust them, so I took my car home, I am...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I'm a total n00b with cars but wanted to run by what the mechanic told me to make sure everything makes sense. I took my car (318ic w/ ~150k milage) in for inspection, and the mechanic told me that my front lower ball joints have play, that they are replaced with lower control arms, and that...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I was in the dealer for something unrelated, and they told me I need new ball joints soon. I don't experience any clanking noise over bumps or while turning nor do I get any shaking in the steering wheel. Any recommendations on how I know if I really need to put in new control arms? Thanks.
