    AAA changed the battery on my 2007 328xi. Before they did any work, the orange battery light was coming on occasionally. I only had them do the work because they were at my house already changing my Wife’s battery. Once they had changed my battery, the airbag (IBS) light came on. My mechanic...

    My 540 came with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 run flats. As luck would have it, one of the tires developed a sidewall bulge with 6/32 tread remaining. The warranty that came with the tire provides for a pro rated credit for the life of the tire for road hazards. This was one nice feature specific...

    A month ago I took my 2013 328I into the dealership to have a routine maintenance (oil, filters changed etc.) done on it. A few days after, white smoke started coming from the engine after driving it. I took it back in and was informed I had a valve cover gasket leak which they replaced. Two...

    So I hit a deer about 2 months ago and I need to replace the hood. Preferably a carbon fiber hood but I haven't had luck in the past. I purchased a carbon creations good that came cracked so that was junk but I was wondering if anybody has bought a Seibon carbon fiber hood before? And if so how...

    So today I asked my brother if he'd like to drive my car just about an 1/8 of a mile on the street that leads down to my house. He's older than me, but is from the Philippines and has never driven a car before coming to the US. Anyways, i've had him drive it before and I thought it would be no...

    Hello. New to the forums today out of sheer panic from confusion of the accident I was involved in Saturday. I have a 2011 328i with 7 months left on the original warranty. I purchased the car CPO with 18,400 miles in November and the mileage today is 22,000. The CPO warranty does not kick in...

Found front tire on the passenger...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I have a question about what might be wrong with my car. I was turning into a tight lane today and by accident and utter foolishness I managed to hit a curb on the passenger side at about 30 km/h. I was turning in kind of fast and mucked up the turn. When I hit it I felt a pretty strong force...

  15. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    When I bought my 2001 Z3 in early July 2012, all the seat surfaces were clean and in good shape. I noticed, however, that the center panel in the driver's seat (the horizontal surface, not the back) was unusually hard and stiff. The other panels are supple and soft, no rips, no tears. I had...

    Yesterday a Mercedes G500 decided to crash into the back passenger side of my beloved E39 and I am wondering what things I should make sure to have the body shop and mechanic take a look at. The damage is immediately behind the rear wheel and part of the fender is crushed in. There is a nice...

    Hi forum, I have a BMW 323i (E92) which underwent water damage after driving through some water (stupidly, of course).

  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, I am new to the forum and soon will be new to BMW ownership. I thought I had found a nice 2006 330i Listed with only 31,000 miles at $22,000 and in talking with the owner seemed like it might be a good option to pursue with a third party inspection and all that jazz. But after pulling the...
