    Haven't posted here in a while and while there are a ton of maintenance and repair threads, figured I would share my excellent dealer experience and discuss next steps. Little background, car in my sig was leased and lease expired in Oct of last year. For various reasons, including a $4k...

    Buying a 2015 X5 50 w/20K miles in pristine condition except CPO report shows need for front and back brake rotors & pad maint in approx 3K miles (i.e. soon). Would like advice whether $3,400 dealer service contract is better option than a local BMW specialty mechanic shop for first 36 month...

  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, Hoping to get some guidance here. 7 weeks ago while my E93 M3 was still under warranty I had the 90,000 mile scheduled service done at the dealer. For this service, they apparently do a complete end to end vehicle check. They informed me that everything looks good but I need a new battery...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    my 2005 325xi needs it's first battery replacement. The cost to replace it is $450 and I asked for an explanation. $260 for the battery and $242 labor. They said the battery needs to be coded to the car. Some things won't work if it's not coded..... I never heard of such a thing....Anyone...
  6. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Took my car to replace rear brake pads (car told me it was time to do so - it's so smart). Dealer told me there was a recall just issued on the coolant pump and was going to have that addressed at the same time. When I picked up the car 2 days later I heard a gurgling sound that seemed to be...
  7. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    My BMW service dept is always jammed pack so you're lucky if you get your car back at the end of the day for an oil change. I had an 11:40a Thurs appt with a loaner to get oil change, brake oil, fluids etc on my 2011 X3. I got a chassis malfunction error and battery discharge msg again not too...
  8. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Currently on my 3rd (new) E89 and have just changed from 23i straight six to a 2.0i turbo. After 2 very reliable cars my new one has now been back to the dealer 4 times in the 3 months I have had it. I've had rattles, tire problems, roof stuck down, roof stuck up!!! My latest argument with the...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Sorry, need to vent. I love my 328xi, now another family member drives it full time and am lucky to see on weekends. I bought a Acura RDX and thought it was a good idea at the time. Okay, not even close to the same car so I won't go into that, I want to talk Service. I took my 328xi in once...
  10. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have had my 2011 550i for about a month and it currently has about 500 miles on it. I have barely driven the car, and about 95% of the driving has been on the highway ( i have 2 cars and i take the bmw out on longer trips only). However, i am getting a pathetic 13 mpg. Additionally, the...

    Hi, guys! My X3 is due for 30k service. The only choice I got here for the service is Roseville BMW. But I've heard some scary stuff about this dealership. So, if you have any pleasant experience with any service providers in this area (dealership or non-dealership), please do share. Drive...
  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Yup... have ~90 days of warranty left. Had the car into Santa Monica BMW for Inspection I service at 21,260 miles. Dipstick nearly dry upon arrival back home. Large leak in driveway. I dumped a quart of oil into it and drove the 6 miles back to the stealership. Right side of engine bay covered...
  13. California
    I'm rapidly approaching my Inspection I. I want a dealer with excellent M techs. Got 90 days left on my warranty. I'm Not asking for DIY arguments here, asking for dealership recommendations. I don't care about the personalities of the Service Reps or the decor of the lobby. I want a...
