    I posted about this briefly in another thread, but my 4 yr 'free' maintenance period came up in August of this year and my dealer that I have gone to for the past 6 years really hooked it up. They did front brakes (pads, rotors etc.), replaced corroded coolant expansion tank, oil change, cabin...

    Hi folks. My Brake Fluid light is mostly on these days. I have bought some DOT-4 fluid and topped it up. The reservoir is still full. It hadn't dipped. But the light still is on. No sponginess (in fact it reduced when I topped it up), and brakes are fine. What could be the problem...

    Hello everyone, I own a BMW 330i (E90) of 2006. I got service alerts for Nov-17 for the brake fluid and microfilter. However I'm using it rarely and in the last year, I've done less than 5,000 km. My question is, should I really change the brake fluid and the microfilter or can I just reset the...

I'm hoping someone can help me. Took the car out for a drive, about 30 miles. Temperature was around...

    Basic question here. My first BMW is the 325xi, 2006. I am sold on the performance, but feel that basic maintenance is something that I should be able to do and it seems, they want you to take it to the dealer. Now, the question- where do I add brake fluid? My "brake" light came on, I found...

    Hey guys my wife took my car in for the first service (has about 11k miles) to get oil, brake fluid, micro filters etc. But when she came back the idrive showed that brake fluid service was still needed. The paperwork shows that they did brake fluid so did the dealer just not reset the computer...

    OK, I know how much we all love to discuss automotive fluids (and tires and spark plugs..), but my searches have only turned up a few discussions of brake fluid, and none of them have really answered my basic question "Which fluid type works best for ASC/DSC equipped E-39s". What I have found is...
