    E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone point me in the right direction on this issue? My N62 has developed a whine/drone that seems to be coming from the passenger side.

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  14. Should I replace coolant transfer pipe?

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I purchased a 2006 BMW 550i. It had a massive coolant leak but I got a great deal on it. I found that a plastic T coolant joint disintegrated under the intake manifold. That explains the massive leaking at the back of the engine and the front. The fluid would just puddle on top of the valley...
