  1. General BMW Questions
    Hi, Hope everyone is well. My Lease will end in September 2021 for a 3 series 2018 currently under the 15k a yr allowance. I took it for a pre-inspection last moth at another dealer (not where I originally leased) and they looked at the car there is a little bit wear to the rim. This dealer’s...

    So when do the expensive Knock Sensors crap out? At what mileage? Also bmw or OEM (what brand) Share your experience. I am currently doing a big job (timing chain/valley pan/cooling system). I recall coming across a few posts on knock sensors. Are these bound to fail? If so? When? I would hate...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I recently bought a CPO BMW 335i. I love the car but it has a crack in the instrument cluster under the rpm guage. Should this have been caught in bmw's cpo inspection that I hear so much about? Are they really not that thorough. Just trying to decide if it's worth perusing because the...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I was wondering if any one has ever freshened up their throttle body? I seen a video with a Mitsubishi and the guy changed the rings that the throttle plates "arms" go through to help the plate rotate open easier and as much as it should. My cars got 280klm and it feels like I have to give it...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The end of this summer I need to have a car, and I was looking at a bunch of cars, I already ruled out trucks, jeeps, and pretty much everything but a BMW and a VW. I am not sure if I would be able to afford the BMW, but I am not sure what my budget is yet. I have several friends who are...

    Hi everyone. I am looking at purchasing a BMW and am not familiar with them. My last car was a Cadillac and the one before that was a pontiac so you can see where my familiarity is. I am looking at a 2007 BMW 328xi (AWD and Loaded) it has 125,000 on it and I'm trying to see how long it is...
  7. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    Just bought an 06 e46 m3, 30k miles and about to drive it across the country. I had the PPI done but an inspection 2 has gotta be due soon. I've heard good and bad about strictly bmw and cartender in the seattle area, wondering if there are any master techs around here i could talk to and have...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Okay so I just purchased my first car yesterday and I'm very excited to say the least. It's a 2000 540i and i bought it as is so there are a couple things that I need to fix. I have little to no experience maintaining or repairing cars but you have to start somewhere. I believe that the car has...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I am looking into buying a 2009 X5 and I found a nice one but when I checked its Carfax report it shows that the previous owner took it to the dealer every 3000 miles... my previous experience with a BMW was more like a visit every 10-15K miles... Is that a sign that there is something wrong...
