    Hi Everyone, I purchased a E60 530Xi 2007 last month. This is my first car. It was 170,000km old. I had seen that the brakefluid, and Microfilter indication under "i assist >> Car info >> service info" were red. The car isn't stopping like new when I hit breaks so it's time for breakfluid...

    **Newbie ALERT** Hello. Please can you give me some advice? I have just taken delivery of my first Z4. It's a 2013 1.8 sDrive. I absolutely love it, but am having a tricky time adjusting to the hand break, esp. as I live on a hill and have to reverse park on a shared drive, which not only is...

    Yep I was on the freeway and all the sudden the car when crazy. I saw reflection on the back windshield that the break light was on. RPM stays the same - the MPG meters going toward 50MPG (of course since you're slowing yourself down). Happens more frequently now, especially after the engine...
