  1. General BMW Questions

    This is my husband's car. We just replaced my 2000 328i that began to require regular (non-coolant) repairs. The last straw was finding out that the head gasket needed replacing. We are getting to the "last straw" point with this one too... 2001 325i with recurring coolant system leaks that...
