    I have an X3 E83 M54. A few months back, I realized that there was smoke coming out from the vent and I thought it was just an one time event because it did not happen for a few days. The second time it happened, I tried to figure out where the smoke was coming from and it seems that its coming...

    Hi: I have been chasing a strange burn smell coming from the A/C vents. It only happens shortly after a hard braking or if I take a tight / sudden turn.

    Hi guys, I got my 03' 330i M-sport a few weeks ago and I've began to notice that in either reverse or 1st gear (it's hard to tell which), I can smell burning coming from somewhere in the car and it's beginning to worry me. It smells a bit like oil, but my oil hasn't dropped and I can't see any...

    I have an oil leak that is coming from the gasket where the oil filter meets the engine compartment (so says my mechanic) so occasionally i have to put in oil through the engine oil filler.

    I did ATF fluid drain and fill last few days. I used the Valvoline MaxLife D/M ATF fluid. The tag on the bottle clearly indicates it applies to BMW 7045E although the viscosity of the ATF at 100C is only 6.8 or so. After the drain and fill, there is a burning smell at low gear. It is very...
