    I have a very weird problem, from a year from now. While driving, at every speed, in every gear, with every weather...car randomly starts hiccup like no petrol is coming to the engine.

    Hi, I have a late 2009 118d BMW with less than 50,000 miles. A month ago as I was driving and the vehicle started kicking, and just gave me enough time to get to the side of the road at high revs. Long story short, I towed my car to the mechanic and found out that a bearing from the high...

    Today at about 3pm I was pulling into my apartment complex after driving for about 20 min and just as I pulled into the lot pure white smoke came bellowing out of the exhaust!

  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Update: After 10 days of testing my car and working with BMW factory rep, dealer (Global Imports in Atlanta) told me BMW would not cover the engine replacement "because a diagnostic test indicated the car overheated at some point in the past". I told them the car had most certainly never...
