    Hello here with another issue I have picked my car to death. When I hit lips of driveways or potholes I feel like I'm breaking something like the suspension/shocks hit hard it loud and worry's me. Is this normal? Should I replace the shocks/struts? Thanks
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Have a 2006 E61 and it does not inflate the rear suspension properly. I have troubleshooted and removed the hoses out the compressor valve and can raise the right and left bellows separately fine with the garage compressor. The car is raised on each side. I know that the car's compressor...

    I am starting to go hiking in some backforest areas. This means driving over some state forest roads that are not paved, and often have some pretty nasty potholes. I've already had issues with bottoming out on some of those potholes. Rather than get a new car to simply go over these roads...
  4. New Member Introductions
    Hello! Glad to find you all. I am Meg and I’m 30 years old. My father loved BMW and always wanted to own one. When my parents were financial stable (ie, kids out of college and off doing their own thing), my dad got a (cerified preowned) 2011 325i about 10 years ago. I used it for a big trip...

    Hi everyone ! First of all please forgive me if I am posting in the wrong section (this is the first topic I write). I have been trying to identify a noise coming from the rear interior, on the righr side, precisely above the right rear wheel. This noise only occurs on small bumps and also...

    I'm thinking on changing shock absorbers in my 2021 m340ix. My country roads are bumpy. I'm looking for an softer shock absorber (the one that is able to travel longer path on bumps because of less resistance while compressing). I've been speaking with Bilstein support and they proposed B6...

    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...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Can someone send a pic of the lower control arm for a 335i E92 RWD, I've been looking at videos and on fcp euro, but each say different things, calling them tension struts and stuff. I would appreciate it if someone specifies if its the zig zag one or the straight one. 😭

    I have a 2003 525i with the non-sport suspension and it has ~140k miles on it. I'm looking to lower my car (affordably), so I've mostly been looking at lowering springs instead of coil overs. I can't really justify spending $1000+ on suspension when I don't plan on tracking my car, I just want...
  10. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    When driving over bumps I have a klank sometimes very loud on right side of under carriage. just replaced worn front sway bar links but that did not help. mechanic looked over car and thought it was the sway bar as nothing else underneath seemed like a source. what could it be? shocks? Why...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm planning on upgrading my rear shocks but I don't know the how big of a difference sachs vs b6 is, besides price. I know b6 is stiffer but can someone break it down or talk about their experience between the two.
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    EDIT 4/6/2022 I found a full set of springs that only has a .5" lowering, and I decided to go with those, thank you all for your help! Hi, I am looking for OE style suspension, springs, struts, and shocks, for my E92 335i Xdrive. I am new to BMW ownership, and just recently bought a 2010 E92...

    Just picked up my first bmw, it has a bent strut. I’ve been looking online for a complete assembly. When I type in xdrive, it’s still showing some struts for rwd will they be the same fit?
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys, how's it going... I have a 1990 BMW 325i and for some reason, one of my wheels ( the driver side ) sticks out further than the passenger side... I had this problem for around 6 months now and thought "Well, maybe a tie rod is bent slightly or something stupid..", So time flies and I...
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Merry Christmas guys. I was looking for some help figuring out which suspension parts I need to replace the blown shocks and struts on my 1992 325i. I think I'm gonna go for some Bilstein shocks and struts with h&r springs. I'm on a really tight budget, my plan before was to go with Raceland's...

    Yesterday I just installed Bilstein b14 coilovers on my 1997 540i and after taking it for a drive I noticed a slight clunky sound coming from the front passenger side. When removing the old strut on that side only I disconnected the steering arm and I’m starting to think that could be the reason
  18. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi guys! I just bought a 2013 BMW X5 i35 last month and right now I need to change the coil spring for rear. How can I know my suspension system is or not sport suspension? And I also wanna know if 19×9 wheel rim with offset 30mm will fit the 255/50 R 19 XL tire? what is the OEM offset of this...

    Hello everyone, I desperately need your help. My car, BMW e36 325 TDS 94', have a huge problem i can´t solve, since i own it. The symptom is: In higway, above 50 MPH, if the car goes through a depression in the pavement, the front of the car appears like a boat. Making moves side to side, like...
  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello Forum, I want to replace my front suspension(struts and coil springs). How can I know if my e90 has a sport package suspension? In case my car is the sport package then do I need to buy the sport suspension or can I just buy the normal one(struts and coil springs assembly) that fits my...
