  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Recently I discovered a metallic noise when I driver over a speed bump or turn a little bit faster in a curve. My BMW X5 35d 2011 drives and brakes normal as it should.Even driving in a dip seems to work fine. I'm a little bit scared to be honest because the metallic sound is quite concerning to...

    Hey all, I don't post often but I just wanted to post a blackout tint I found that works well with Black Sapphire Metallic paint, along with some pics. Helpful for those DIYers. In the pics, the car has wax on it, but the tint hasn't, so there was a minor sheen difference at the time I took...

    Hey Guys, I just got myself my first BMW and couldn't be happier, but it needs some TLC on the exterior paint, no scratches or damage, it just looks like it has been a long time since it got a good wax/polish. Should I clay first? Or wax a couple of weekends and then Clay? What kind of wax do...

    Does anyone have any pictures the can post of a Sparkling Metallic Graphite colored car with window tint? I'm getting my windows tinted tomorrow, but I'm not sure how dark to go to make it look good. Thanks!
