  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    F10 / F11 steering - did it get better? When? I've seen lots of posts, mainly from early in the F10/11's life, complaining about the feel-free electronic steering. And many posters hoped that BMW would quickly improve it. That's plausible - Porsche kept improving the electronic steering on...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey there (again...), Really boned it this time. As shown in picture, I accidentally put in the screws for the steering coupling the wrong way (the bolts should have been threaded in from the opposite side) I've been at it with a socket wrench and an electric one as well, but they are not...
  3. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I’ve had other BMW’s. My E39 has great, tight, solid steering. The E38 definitely feels softer. I got my alignment today, finally, after rebuilding the front end. Car was in a minor accident caused by it’s one owner who was 78yo. Cars is otherwise a cream puff. The steering wheel feels a bit...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2014 F34 320i sportline, 85,000kms/52,000 miles. For the last year or so, I've had a clunking noise coming from the RHD driver's side front suspension, but only when going over small bumps at low speeds. I've had the control arms replaced and the problem still persists...

    Bought this car last week. Has 170,000 on the clock and seems to be running fine. Main issue is the steering is heavy. There is no light on the dash board to signify why this is the case however. Considering cleaning the steering angle sensor in the meantime but also wanting to replace the...

    Hello folks 2003 745i: recently I started to have intermittent DSC issues. All lights come on the dash (DSC, Brake, ABS,...) and the speedometer reads 0. I also lost the steering assist. IDrive shows "vehicle detects increased body roll in curves". Sometimes the issues clear overnight. The...
  10. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    I’m dealing with an e53 x5 with a broken aluminum line on the rack (picture included). Rock hit it. My question here is: can I simply replace the line with one from a junk yard car or do I have to replace the entire rack because of this? Both ends of the line are accessible without unbolting...

    I have had 5 seven series over the last 25 yrs. I just got a 2019 740 I xdrive. This car is slippery. The steering and cornering is no where near as tight a previous models. Even in sport mode its loose. Is there any way to adjust this or is this the new normal ?

    My BMW 320d's steering suddenly became extremely stiff and the battery charge warning light came on at the same time. Are they related? What is the likely problem and cost?

    I have a 2011 335i M sport (e90 LCI) and have for a while now been hearing a loud grinding sound coming from either the steering column or the front of the car whenever I make a sharp right turn. Originally I thought that this sound was my old scraped up bumper rubbing against the asphalt but I...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I bought this 2005 525i (M54 engine) which has the sport package a couple of years ago with this strange behaviour where the active steering malfunctions after about 15 minutes of starting the car. Doesn't matter what distance I've traveled, whether the car is moving or stopped, going over bumpy...
