    Hi there, In summary, test driving a '09 328i when it started raining near torrentially, which seemed fine as I slowed down for traction concerns with near an inch of water everywhere on road. All of a sudden, same throttle cruising in 6th at about 2100 rpm, the engine starts running horribly...

    Hello, I recently purchased a 1997 bmw z3, I'm fairly new to the forum but I know a thing or two about bmw.

    Hi all, I just had my windshield replaced about 3 weeks ago, and experienced first leak last weekend during heavy rain. The floor on the passenger seat side (front and rear) had puddles due to the leak. I did try to towel dry at least once a day, but the carpet remained somewhat damp for 2-3...

    Hello, I'm starting to think this is something of a long shot, but here I am still trying. Anyways, this beauty is languishing in storage due to the dreaded sunroof drain-plugging that results in frying all 10 of the computer modules shown below: I've tried other avenues to not...

    EDIT: this is a long story - so here's the summary of my questions in case you don't want to read the whole story: After weeks of rain, I found battery box full of water. I had the local independent replace my battery a couple years ago - I notice that they didn't connect the overflow tube to...

  12. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I just purchased my 2016 435i in February and am already having issues with it. I took it though one of those laser touch less carwashes and the trunk must have opened during it somehow. It was then filled with water and the tow hook cover was off (which made me notice the water). The light...

    Hey all. Like many of you, I've had issues with my vapor barriers before. I thought I'd fixed them with some new sealant 2.5 years ago, but after an insanely heavy downpour last night the problem has returned. One thing I noticed regarding the vapor barriers while replacing the sealant was that...
  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I bought a 2011 X5 xDrive35i Premium in early August of this year from a national pre-owned car chain. The AutoCheck report said that it had suffered from an accident in July of 2011, but didn't say anything about flood damage or a branded title due to flood damage. It only had 34K miles, and...

    Hiya guys So today after pulling my hair out over my beloved X5 I had a guy turn up to look at my key as that was the fault coming up as to why it wouldn't start. He looked at the key and wrote a temporary chip to see if the car would start before cutting a new key for me, the car turned...

    I recently brought my X5 35d to the dealer after the radio started making a loud, static notice for a minute and then stopped working altogether. Every audio function (Radio/CD/Navi/Telephone/Warning Sounds) ceased to function. The vehicle is still under warranty, so I figured it would get...

    I have a 2011 550i. On Saturday, I got a drivetrain malfunction error and a parking brake malfunction error and the car was towed in. It turns out that I have gotten water in the trunk and it has fried certain modules. The dealership tells me that the issue is my fault. I bought the car used...
