    Whats up guys, fairly new member here. I seem to have a squealing/squeaking noise when braking, I'd say after pressing the brake down 50% I get this pulsing squealing, kind of sounds like a bird tweeting, not sure how to explain the noise Would anyone know what this might be?. I do have a video...
  2. X3 G01 (2018 - current)
    I have a 2018 X30I but have some mostly minor complaints: 1. Auto warning AND braking is too sensitive when I back down my driveway hill. This is so bad that it either takes 3-5 tries to find an attack angle (right or left of center) that will let me get on the road OR I have to go into I Drive...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello, everyone! This is my first time posting, though I've been following this forum since I first got my F30. Everyone on here is so helpful and knowledgeable, so I thought I could take advantage of that! I haven't really been able to find a straight answer to my question, so I apologize if...

    Just same as we see in old action movies... I was driving and using the brake normally then pushed the brake pedal and it went all the way to the end and no braking at all...:dunno:(unusual) so I parked the car for about 10 minutes then drove slowly then the brake is back to the normal operating...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Driving at 15 to 20 mile speed limit, I tried to apply brakes. It slowed down. Engine was still trying to race / run faster. I gave it to dealer, They say, drove for 100 miles and do not see. This is the third such occurance of car not coming to halt. When apply the brake hard, I can still feel...
  6. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Charged my new i3 a couple of weeks ago for the first time. My goal was not to let the charge go under 50% so as soon as I ticked under 50, I plugged my car into the garage wall socket. It took over 24 hours to charge from about 45% to 100%. I had been under the impression it takes this long to...
  7. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Unlike most of the posters here, I have a permanent physical disability -- I'm unusually short and I walk with leg braces. So here is a different perspective on the i3. First the good news -- 99% of the good things I've read turn out to be true. The steering is beautiful. The accelerator...
  8. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Here's a braking and a few charging questions for those of you who have had experience with the i3. 1. I saw this mentioned on another thread but didn't see an answer. The i3 decelerates noticeably when you take your foot off the accelerator. I assume the brake lights only come on when you hit...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, I have a '98 323is with a few interesting problems. Looking for some advice 1.) The heat shield above exhaust is fully resting on the muffler. I was thinking of just ripping it out or buying some washers and bolting it back up. Anything negative about removing it? 2.)The driveshaft...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I've had cars in the past when it came time to get a wheel alignment/but this is more violent than Ive experienced with previous cars.When im braking at high speeds the car shifts to the left and steering wheel jolts to the right(opposite side of pulling). Have to really pull the steering wheel...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys I have appreciated all your help with cosmetic upgrades so far since I've joined this forum. I have a bit of concern with my beamer right now. When ever I'm braking (almost to a stop) my brakes squeek. Not too loud but they still do. Brake dust is excessive too. I was wonder if thats...
  12. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So I recently just got a brand new 2013 BMW 328xi and it seems that I'm having problems with braking with the car. I use to drive a 2009 BMW 328xi which was excellent in braking. Now i understand that this car is faster than my old car, but i feel that the brakes are very bad (kind of like...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My apologies, I had mistakenly posted this in the DIY forum (sorry... new guy!)... re-posting here. Thanks! ----- I am familiar with all the pros and cons between ceramic and semi-metallic brake pads (i.e. cost, dust, performance, wear, etc.), however, I have not been able to find any concrete...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So today I noticed a popping sound as I came to a stop. I turned off the radio for a better listen hoping it was a one-time thing, but it wasn't.:thumbdwn: Every time I brake, more so on downhills, I get this popping/creaking sound from the front left of the car. Sounds almost like it is coming...
  15. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I've spend about an hour doing searches on the internet and reviewing the usual web pages (edmunds.com, car and driver, etc.) but can't seem to locate any articles that reference reliable braking distance test results. Does anyone know where I can find reliable/documented braking distance test...
  16. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey guys, so i have been having this problem for a while, really since i bought my car 2 years ago and it has been getting steadily worse. when i apply my brakes gently such as coming up to a stop sign, my car shacks from side to side like a wheel out of balance at 50mph. the brake pedal...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2003 530i. The front brakes and rotors have been replaced (new) in the past 2 weeks. After I had the work done the vibration showed up. I took the car back and complained. The shop owner (only works on BMW's) put a new set of rotors on for me, in the event the other new ones were...
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've noticed that my car shudders badly when braking while passing over larger road imperfections (expansion joints, potholes). My Integra is fine when I go over the same. Is there something wrong with my 525iT or is this just normal for the car?
