    Last week I bought a used 2017 bmw 530i with 32K miles on it with no previous damage on the vehicle. Today I got a refill coolant warning on my dash a few hours after I got home from a drive.

    I'm really hoping someone has an answer to this; It seems sometimes whenever I have a hard shift (say slowing down, not to a complete stop, and then accelerating; or accelerating up a hill from a stop) I get the engine malfunction, reduced power message.

  7. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I went to a shop that only works on BMW's to get my splash cover re-mounted on the underside of my 2006 E64. He told me that he noticed these problems while working on my vehicle, and said that their severity on a scale of 1-5, 1 being an absolute disaster; is a 2. Naturally this scares the shit...

    Have a 2010 BMW M3 coupe dual clutch, ~50k miles, with a damaged engine. I am the only owner of this car and pretty much babied it the whole time owning it. Never tracked, launched, driven aggressively, etc. A few days ago the car just started acting weird. It happened while it was raining...
