  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi, My dealer just replaced all four brake pads and resurfaced the rotors. Charging $750 at the rate of $150/hr. Is it normal for this job to take 5hrs? Thanks, Ash.

    I recently received the sad news that my fuels lines have rotted through at a couple of spots. I was told that we would need to order the parts from Germany and they're expensive. Combined with the labor, I'm looking at a $2,000+ repair, effectively totaling the best car I've ever owned. I'm...
  3. General BMW Questions
    Hello! I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for where I should take my car for maintenance/repair? I've had a lot of bad experiences with repairs on my BMW; and being new to this area I don't want to go to a place that may either overcharge or not even fix my car. Or would it be...

    Hello everyone:). This is my first post and I am exited to see what you have to say. As a first car, I am looking at a 2007 328i coupe (has sports package) with 128,000 miles. Recent repairs/services are listed at what mileage they were done at. I will provide the craigslist ad below...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys i'm planning to buy my first car in June and have been some research but this is starting to drive me nuts. There is so many options with BMW and I cant choose a car. I have about 9-12 grand I can spend and have been mostly looking at the 2008 335i, 535i, and 550i. For the price i've...

    Hello Folks, I have previously owned 2007 328i, 2013 Base Cayenne, 2012 Audi TT and now on my way to i think what will solve my hunger for power-acceleration-performance. I am considering a 2013 M3 (<20k miles) for 53k (sticker price: 75k: car is fully loaded with competition package/premium...
  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have just bought this 2005 X3 for a good price. It is in great shape with the exception of the dent in the rear gate. I love working inside cars, but have exactly zero experience with body work. Any thoughts and advice would be welcome. For instance, how do I select a good body shop vs...
  8. BMW Diesel Owners & Enthusiasts
    Hey all, I'm currently a college student doing some very, very early pre-purchasing research for my first post-college car. The 335d seems to be really great in terms of both power and fuel economy, plus there's the neatness factor of driving a diesel. However, most 335d's on the market now have...
  9. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    How much (in toto) did the dealer or indy quote you for your repair job? This thread today got me thinking that we might benefit from a compendium of real price quotes, from either dealers or indys, so that we can, in the future, refer others to this thread so they can get better transparency...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Guys, Hoping I can get some insight or information on what to do about my car. I have a 328XI 2007 coupe that came out of warranty in July of 2013. It was doing just fine until a couple months ago and then ish hit the fan. I bought it as a certified pre-owned and serviced it regularly at the...
  11. General BMW Questions
    I seem to not be able to make up my mind! A little bit about myself, for rendering what model most applicable. College student, I have a small-medium budget, as I work full time, but soon I shan't be able to do that with the next upcoming semester. CURRENTLY I have 5,000 I'm willing to spend on...
