crack

  1. Pacific Northwest Region - AK, HI, ID, OR, and WA
    So today on the way down to Portland, overtaking a truck, a rock hit the windshield. A crack developed a couple of seconds later. I've been reading online and I don't think a crack can be fixed (it's about 4-5 inches wide), so it's a windshield replacement. Being an M3 I obviously need OEM...

    Has anyone experienced any issues with broken windshields or other windows? I am interested in doing glass breakage research and need to collect some samples for analysis. I am in New York but willing to pay for shipping if you live in another state. PM me or post on here if you can help!

    TAB has received the first significant "ding" in my ownership. 5 months in... Apparently Wifey was backing out of the driveway this morning, didn't turn quite enough, and front passenger bumper/splash guard met the curb and/or grass corner... So here is the dilemma: searching through the forum...

    Hi, I've been reading this forum whenever I had a problem and always found the solution, but the related threads don't seem to relate to my exact problem. What I've seen is that the most common issues are caused by the shade sliders or the water protector in the sunroof mechanism. My problem...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Alright. So I noticed a bit of a stain on my driveway last year November and it slowly got bigger, of course, a leak of some sort. I took it to my mechanic for an inspection and he told me that it was due to a crack in my power steering pump. Now, at the time I didn't have enough cash to...
  6. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I just noticed a crack in the passenger side front fender. It starts at the rivot under the hood. Has anyone seen this before? No accident or any other damage...can this be a stress fracture? It has been cold lately/freezing (upstate NY)...but would be surprised the cold could crack the fender...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello everyone, I have a 10 month old F32 and today, after washing the car I noticed around 10 very tiny chips in the windshield, they probably where there before I just did not notice since they are so small. This sucks big time. I have been checking other posts and found that lately the...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Ok so occasionally I like to take my really old bmw 3251 e36 out for some fun. I go onto an abandoned road and do peel outs, drift, etc. well today I went our and I tried to get close to the rev limiter without going over. I was stationary, and I floored it and I hit 7000 rpms. I then heard a...

    Took my car into get detailed and out it came with a crack in the wood grain portion of the console. I can't seem to find a replacement for it anywhere. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks DC
  10. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    In looking at a couple of M Roadsters over the weekend, I some pictures of some cracks I found on the front shock tower weld seams. Needless to say, I haven't purchased this car, and I wanted to get an impression of how serious an issue this is and whether or not it is a deal breaker or just a...

  13. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi guys, I had a mechanic check out my 2003 3.0 Z4 and got told it needed the following; Left and right front upper shock absorber mounting (mounting bushes cracked, mount cracked) I'm having trouble identifying EXACTLY what parts are required as his description is a bit vague. I've looked at...
  14. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hello! I own a 2007 118i. I accidentally opened the bonnet of my 118i with the wipers up. I heard a loud crack and to my amazement I discovered that the windscreen has cracked. Has anyone experienced this? Did you report this to BMW? Was there a reply from them? Thank you!
  15. General BMW Questions
    I noticed a small (about 2" diameter) crack in my windshield on the passenger side last week. Insurance waived a deductible to get it repaired rather than having to replace the windshield but the guy from safelite informed me today that this crack had been previously repaired and poorly at that...
