    What might you check first? What would you be SURE has deteriorated over those 10 years or in need of replacement first? …this is assuming it ran great 10 years ago.

    Hello patrons of this forum, I have a question about rerouting rear brake lines on my 2000 540i. My rear pipes are rusted badly and need replacement. I intend to do the work by myself. From my understanding the rear subframe needs to be dropped in order to replace them on the factory route, some...

    My mechanic failed me for inspection in Maine, the reason being the terrible condition of the rocker panels. Looking for advice: the old girl is 20 years old. Is it worth my time and money to attempt this fix with some help, or should I bite the bullet and start shopping for a newer girl? I know...

    I'm trying to find a unicorn for my wife: certified '14-'16 X5, diesel, 3rd row, multi comfort seats..silver, gray, or white (or blue). I found one in northern NJ and one in central PA. Based on snowfall the past 3-4 years, I'm concerned about corrosion from salted roads. Anyone have any...

    Has anyone seen this before? It seems that something is rusting underneath the side panel, and is drawing on the stain witht the rain water. It's a BMW 320i 2010 model.

  8. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    I have a 1999 E36 M3 and I am not sure if I have rust under my car or if it's just normal dirt and grease. I took photos of the areas that I think may have rust on them. Also, if these parts are rusty what can I do to fix the rust?

    Hello all, I'm a new member here, but I've been using this site for years now. I have a 1995 540i/6 and I dropped my exhaust today in order to remove the rear subframe for an overhaul. The exhaust came out easily, but I then discovered that the clamps that connect between the catalytic...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I noticed what appears to be bubbling under the paint near the driver front and rear door seams. I'm not sure if this is just a paint defect (like particles/dust got into the paint when the door was being painted at the factory) or if the paint just clumped a little from the factory, or if this...

    Hi, We are planning to buy a used 2013 BMW X3 from a private party in San Francisco with 15,600 miles on it, and one year of warranty remaining. It is very nice on the outside and inside. When we took it to inspection, we saw some underbody rust and salt deposits on the bolts, bars connecting...

    The window trim looks like a semi gloss/flat black (like the wiper arms) I'm getting corrosion between the trim and rubber, and because they are $100 + tax each, going to sand and paint and see how that looks. Any suggestions or tips?? Thanks P.S. Does anyone else have this issue> BMW said...

    I just got my 328i Xdrive a month ago. Today when I examine the hood the part under the engine seems rusty. What part is that and what should I do? Is this common?

    My girlfriend bought her first BMW a couple months ago. The car came with a lot of rust though, and most of it goes all the way through the metal as far as I can tell. I haven't done too much rust repair so I told her to bring it to a pro, but that pro asked for a lot of money lol Does anyone...

    Okay so awhile ago I traded a car for a 1995 BMW 3 series 318i sedan. Four Cylinder. When I got it the guy had said that it had an electrical issue and needed to be boosted to start it. When I started looking into it I found out that the car would drain around 5 volts overnight or more. It had...
