    Not knowing what the cause is, in which order should I replace components? Should I replace the springs first? The lower bushings? 2003 3.0i X5 140k miles springs

    Hi There, I have a 2016 650i with 10,000 klms. Factory Dunlop runflats were driving me made so I arranged for the local tyre shop to fit a set of new non runflat PS4S....Great tyres BUT...The car is leaning down to the right very noticeably. It appears the back right suspension has sagged. I...

    Any input is greatly appreciated... I have a 2011 750lxi and I recently replaced both front half shafts. Well, the right side boot was a manufacturer defect that was leaking grease from the factory sealed ring. BMW said hey we will repair/replace the boot at no charge. I picked up my car from...

    This is my first post in this forum... ever... I'm also new to owning a BMW, glad to be a part of the community. Let me start by saying that I'm dumb when it comes to these cars, but I am well versed in the world of mechanics and fabrication. Now to my problem, I have been hearing a...

    Hello! I am new to the forum, looking for some answers. I have a 2008 BMW X5 E70 4.8i. I noticed my air bags not inflating. Purchased new bags, installed, nothing. Ordered a new compressor hoping that will fix the issue. I'm not entirely sure if my compressor was being over worked for the last...

    Okay so thanks to Jonas I slid on some ice hit a curb and screwed some suspension parts up. Took my car to a local mechanic in the Salisbury MD area for a diagnosis, turns out that curb did some respectable damage. Long story short mechanic suggest I replace the following: Right rear axle...

    Hey Guys, My new bimmer failed MD state inspection Tuesday. They say the rear springs and shocks need to be replaced. Can you guys recommend some places to get parts for a rear suspension? I was looking at eeuroparts.com and building up a cart but I wanted to get the opinions of some more...

    The driver's side rear shock on my 04 325i base sedan seems to be frozen, so I want to replace both rear shocks. I've replaced front and rear stock struts with Bilsteins on my 06 Porsche Carrera, so feel I should be able to handle replacement of these BMW rear shocks. Am I correct to assume it...

    Anybody have a extra pair of standard rear springs to fit a 2000 e46 laying around the garage, house, or maybe mech shop that they don't need? Ill Pay shipping costs.
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I am about to purchase some rear springs for my car. I was wondering if it would matter weather or not I got BMW brand springs or not? I found some new after market springs for my car and their priced really good. I need to change them really soon before it starts to snow or get any colder...

    I am a new member to the BMW fam. I recently purchased a used 2007 X5 ~ 48000 miles. I have recently been hearing a noise sounding like it is coming from under my passenger side seat (under the car). It happens for about 5-10 seconds then quits. It is loud and obnoxious. It sounds as if...

    Two weeks ago I had the car running a moment too long in hot weather. The guys out back come running to get me "YOUR CAR IS OVERHEATING BAD!". Yup, overheated, cracked the radiator. I tried to patch it to get it home. It worked . . . sort of. The next day I drove it to work and it overheated...

    I have a very small leak in the air suspension in my 2000 540iT sport. Occasionally, but not every time, i come out to the car and the "wagon is draggin' " I hop in, and the air system fixes it. I think its the valves that hold the system stable when parked that's leaking (*read that these...

    I've had a slow leak in the suspension air pump on the right side, which couldn't be located by the dealer but could be replaced for a nominal fee off corse, for a long period of time. The leak now sounds like it's no longer a leak. To level the car out the self leveling mechanism has made it so...
