I let it cool and drove it the...
  9. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Until about a month ago I was proud to have owned a lovely 2014 730d. Great car to drive and I drove it for 68k in 3.5 years with never a fault. Then the warranty expired. A few weeks later the disks were a bit thin, so I asked BMW to fit some replacements. That was when the nightmare began. One...
