    Hi guys, I live in Dubai, and Im about to buy a second hand 6 series (650i or 640i) from 2008-2012, with 70,000 - 120,000 km. Most 6 series I've seen so far, have had a significant amount of repairs of things like: - Shock Mounts - Engine mounts - Control arm bushes - Wishbone Assy - Shock...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Going to try and do this for the first time, never got the change to work on my previous e60 suspension before the disaster... so my wish bones are indeed for replacement, bushings are worn and cracked, PO never replaced them they are original by the look of the mfr date but both control arms...
  3. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Replacing both tomorrow and seem to have two problems --- First, is I got this from the BMW Workshop Manual, and I can't figure out what this means: "Tightening torque 31 12 6AZ" See below, to see where they used this for the control arm. It shows the format and the other torque...

    Hi there, I have my car in the dealer shop getting leaks fixed (filter housing & valve cover). I was just called by the shop telling me that my control arm bushings need to be replaced. They let me know that it is a safety issue and is not something I should put off. However, my car only has...

    Man, it must be me! Last year I replaced the passenger side CA due to an incident. It took me a good amount of time to finish the job because the dang 21mm nut wouldn't come off easily. Once it reached the end of the bolt, the bolt would start to turn too! Finally I found an Allen wrench...
  6. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I get a strange clunk-grinding noise when turning the wheels while not moving. The noise comes from the wheels. Also, the front of the car rises and lowers while doing this. I changed the upper and lower control arms and the tie rods. What could it be?
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Driving my 2014 F31 and heard a ping/clang and the driving got sloppy. Got under the car and saw what I believe is the control arm pretty close to being completely sheared in half. I have not run over anything, hopped a curb or driven in a way that I think could have caused this. Do they just...
  8. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    My car needs a lot of work and I need some help determining which jobs I should tackle and which jobs I should take to the mechanic. I am fairly good but far from being a seasoned repairman. I am about to tackle my blower motor but would like some thoughts on the following jobs… 1. Rear...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I've posted before about this but I have a 2009 335I xdrive coupe and back in October I hit a huge pothole. Steering went light and all road feel was gone. Has never returned since. I have replaced all 4 wheels, tie rods, front lower control arms, m3 bushings in upper control arms, rear toe...
  10. 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...

  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I recently replaced my '92 318i's lower control arm and bushings. After doing that I was able to trust more in the feel back in the steering wheel, having to use very little pressure or back pressure to hold a turn especially at near lock. Going over things in my head I realized that the picture...
  13. Suspension and Braking
    SOLD - SPC Part Number 72110 Will fit all E46's. I am pretty sure all E85's and E36's as well. These are virtually brand new. I installed them and then found out I was over in points for my race class with NASA time trials so off they came. It was sad to remove them. They are light, strong...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys, my 530xi needs new control arms. Any ride handling upgrades available here? Also, i might take advantage and upgrade the suspension if there is a kit that sells both the control arms with coils/shocks etc.

    Good evening everyone. Thanks in advance for your time. Preface: I have been through the Bentley manual, this forum, and numerous google searches. While there is no shortage of info pertaining to this subject, nothing I found addressed my specific problem. My 98 328 Convertible suffers from...

    Hey there good sirs. Haven't been on a car forum since years ago when I owned an audi in college. Good to be back! I just moved to Northern California from Alaska and I picked myself up a 1997 bmw 328is. I am in need of a good mechanic (hopefully affordable too) to help me swap out a control...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I had posted last week about problems I was having with my car. I took it to the dealership and told them to go through the WHOLE CAR. And let me know everything that needed to be done. I bought the car used from a friend of the family who was tired of spending 2-3000 everytime she took it to...
