  1. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi forum, Two years ago, I had a nice 3000+ miles trip in the Z4, from Viña del Mar, Chile to Punta del Este, Uruguay. Of course, we had several nice stops and enjoyed each town we visited in our way to the destination. This year, I'm getting ready for something similar but I'd like to change...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello I have an e92 328xi 2008 sport package.. I have a problem with my front suspension.. Whenever I drive fast over a bump or something big I can hear that squeaking spring noise.. I believe those are the struts or shocks that need to be replaced. The car has 78k miles on it and I bought it...
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 X5 35i and looking to upgrade all 4 suspensions/springs. I am considering Bilstein and Eibach shock/spring combination and I am seeing this kit: https://www.bimmerworld.com/Suspension-Steering/Suspension-Packages/Bilstein-B12-Pro-Kit-Front-and-Rear-46-181220.html. Honestly, I am...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi everyone: My brother in law is having his 2000 BMW 528i with very very few miles brought over to my house to use when they are in town. (I have a big house and they like to vacation here). Anyway, in working issues with the car, the rear suspension is sagging. We rebuilt the air pump but the...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Wanted to know what could be the problem. I noticed the car leans on the front right side of the car. I measured the difference between left and right to be a little over 2 cm. The car rides rough on bumps and the car like to go right (so I hold the steering wheel left) and this is after an...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    It looks like it’s time for new dampers on my 550i (E61). I can save a bit of money by buying Bilstein (“OEM”) dampers for the front, though the “OEM” dampers my local specialist found for the rear are a brand I don’t know (and don’t remember, though it starts with a C or K … ). I’ve had good...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    On my 2007 335xi, mileage=149,500. Today, very cold weather here in the Boston area- about 20 oF this morning and the same in the evening. The rear of the car is VERY stiff going over bumps - like the shocks aren't absorbing at all. Never noticed this before in the last 4+ years that I've...
  8. Suspension and Braking
    Im looking to part with a set of e39 BC Racing BR series coilovers. These are brand new, still in original packaging, never mounted. Spring rates are 8F/6R. No extenders. Comes with instructions, 2 spanner wrenches, and allen wrench. I will pay shipping charges. I bought them straight from BC...
  9. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, I am a new member on here, even though I read through the forum all of the time. I own a 1990 BMW 325ic. I have been trying to rebuild this car to it's former glory and recently took on the task of replacing front struts and shocks. I have been unable to find any OEM parts and after talking...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Good day, I'm looking at purchasing an aftermarket suspension for my vehicle. The suspension itself is currently stock, but I have aftermarket rims that are 19" and I was curious, from anyone's experience, if the following set would cause rub, or in what situations there would be rub with this...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi guys! I'm new to this forum, having just registered. We have a problem with our 2004 BMW X5, and thinking it's the struts or shocks or both, in the back. It has been coming up with "Niveauregel inaktiv" for a couple of months also, but I've noticed the hard ride has been more in the last...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Help! I am on a strict budget and did something stupid. I will beat myself up so you don't have to. And if you do bash me, I deserve it. In December 2015 I bought front and rear shocks/struts/coilovers/springs from eBay for $350 and installed them. They are worse than you could possibly...
  13. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    I currently have a loaner X1 F48 while my X1 35i gets pampered at the dealer. Here is my experience after driving the new X1 around town and highway: - It feels less sporty, in power and shape - It feels more like a Japanese SUV rather than a BMW. - Transmission, if not on SPORT mode (and...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm at 85K and was told my rear shocks were blown. I have a few questions I was hoping Bimmer readers could help out on. 1) Anyone know a cheap mechanic in the DC Area? Was quoted $800 labor to replace all shocks/struts 2) Any idea on if using OEM shocks in the rear (SACHS) and using Bilstein...
  15. Suspension and Braking
    Hello, I have a set of OEM Sachs shocks for E39 M5. I got this set from the previous owner when I got my M5. According to him the set has less than 10K on them. I have no way to verify this, except for my correspondence with the previous owner. The shocks look good and have no leaks. It is...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, I have a 06 BMW 325i (Not Sport Suspension) and I need to replace my stock shocks/struts since they are all (x4) leaking. I am short on budget but I found a good deal on a set of (x4) shocks/struts 08 BMW 135i (front and rear). My question is, will these fit on my BMW 325i? I looked at...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I bought end links and bushings for the rear sway bar after I found out that my passenger side sway bar links is totally broken at the lower ball joint. It rejoiced me a bit because this could definitely be the cause of my passenger rear clunks on uneven roads. Onto the job itself. I was...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    The ride on my 2007 328XI is a little rough and at 82K I am thinking of replacing the shocks. I thought I would reach out and ask for a couple of suggestions. I know shocks need to be replaced in pairs but do you need to replace the rear and front ones at the same time? I may go higher end than...
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    My car has been making these hissing noise from the front passenger side whenever I go over a bump in the road, so I thought It was a good time to replace all the shocks and almost bought a strut kit meant for the 325i, however I remembered reading that my model is 4wd and uses different struts...
