    For a while now I have noticed that when I approach 70mph, I can feel a fair amount of vibration through the floor and my seat. The steering wheel used to vibrate quite a bit but ever since I replaced the control arm bushings that has stopped at lower speeds, but there is still some vibration at...

    Hello guys. I have a 2011 BMW E92 328i X-Drive with an N51 engine. The car has 66 000 miles on the clock. From 4-5 months ago I have strange problems with the car: 1. The fuel consumption has increased, most noticeably on highway, with 20-30%. (Before it was around 10L/100km with 130km/h and...

    Okay guys here goes... I have had a 40+ mph shake in front-left wheel for a couple months. I have replaced about every part that would cause the issue and yet, still have vibration. The issue began after changing front pads and flushing brake fluid. Assumed it was rotors, but no. Parts...

    Guys, especially the knowledgeable specialists - a couple of question for you: Vehicle: 2007 BMW X3 (E83) with N52 engine, 168K miles. 1. After about 150K or a bit more I started hearing gurgling sounds when I push the throttle a bit to get more power just before going uphill. What could...

    Hey Forum Brake guys I have a weird brake problem on my 330xi. They are come and go brake vibrations. I can start out with brakes operating normally, then going down the road I step on the brakes and they vibrate whether I am going fast or slow, but if I am going faster the vibration is worse...

    Hi everyone, I recently purchased an M sport 328i and have around 3000 miles on her. Drove it through a snow storm last week, and i'm not sure if the ECW light has something to do with that. Before i take it to the dealership (150 miles from my place), and suggested by a lot of threads i've...

    Hi Guys, I am a newbie to the BMW world. I recently bought a 1997 Z3 in need of a little work. I have a good mechanic who has helped with a lot and I am trying to get through a long list. The major issue at the moment is in 2nd gear at approx 3000rpm I get a bad vibration up the driveshaft and...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I feel a lot of vibrations inside my cabin when driving. I have seen threads where drivers experienced vibrations when idle but I experience them in motion, more so between 40 and 60 mph. Also the steering wheel shakes. I have low profile tiers on my bimmer, is this a reason for that? What could...

  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My '04 545i has recently been 1.) rough while idling and 2.)creating consistently worse vibrations over time. The vibrations come mostly through 2000 RPM, which can just mean it's happening too fast for me to feel it at speed. I don't feel like it's the transmission because when I use...
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Anyone experiencing a low volume, low pitched, high frequency vibrating sound from the rear seat area (left side) when the car is at low speed/ idle after braking? Seems to be coming from under the left rear seat, and disappears when pressing/ sitting on the seat. Starts when the car's...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi again everyone, So, the saga continues. Got yellow SES light while driving a couple of days back. When I start the car first in the morning after it has been sitting in garage overnight, it shakes very noticeably, the RPMs fluctuate between 750-850 and it eventually settles down at normal...

    Vibration coming from tire/front end at 50mph or above I'm experiencing a vibration coming from what appears to be the front end or tire when I bring the car to 50mph and above. If I have to describe it as clearly as possible I would say the vibration occurs with every rotation of the tire. So...

    Hi there, I have an issue with my BMW that my mechanics can't seem to put a finger on and its getting really frustrating. I felt some vibrations from the front first time going over a bumpy road. Once they started they got amplified as I drove on. It almost felt like a wobble. I stopped at a...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I am about to buy a used 2007 BMW 550i with 38K miles. I took it for a short test drive on the freeway. While test driving I felt a vibration which seemed to shake the seats between 60 and 70 mph. The steering wheel was smooth with no shaking. I was wondering if its just the suspension of the...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I just picked up a 2010 535i x-drive a week ago. I took it on a roadtrip last weekend, and felt some slight vibrations between 60 and 70mph. I took it back to the dealer and they rebalanced the wheels, but it still feels like there is a vibration between 60 and 70. It's very slight, and afraid...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey folks, I'm hoping you can help diagnose a problem with my 2002 330xi. I had new axels and CABs done within the last year, so I hope it's neither of these. There is a sound coming from the front end, very much like the banging around Ive heard in other cars I've owned when the front struts...
