  1. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    I've been monitoring a leak around the rear differential, trying to isolate it. I originally thought it was the front seal, but now I'm not convinced; there's moisture on some tubing above the dif, three tubes. One is red, the other is blue, so I've isolated those as air for the shocks the...

    Vehicle runs and drives but getting a Knocking sound from the engine. The BMW service center found metal shavings in the oil filter indicating internal engine breakage and recommended to replace the engine. The current mileage is 35K. Is there any workaround for this instead of replacing the...

    Hi all. Last month I purchased my first BMW, a fully loaded 2014 328d xDrive MSport. I've always been a fan of the original Borbet Type A wheels and was looking to get a set for said vehicle. The problem that I seem to be having, is if they will mount correctly onto my car without error, as I am...
  7. Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Hi all, first time poster. Last month I joined the BMW family for the first time with a 2014 328d xDrive MSport wagon. I've been looking at wheels to replace my stock 400Ms and have stumbled across a gentleman selling a set of Borbet Type A's that are 17". I know that 17s will fit, as I have...

    My 328d is fast approaching 150,000mi and I’m looking for what everyone here has discovered as key maintenance items for your F30 at that mileage. I’ve already done shocks/struts with mounts, bump stops, and bearings; springs; brake rotors, pads, and e-brake shoes/hardware; and am planning on...
  9. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I bought an F33 recently for a massive discount because it had a light and a warning in the instrument cluster. Says “chassis stabilization drive moderately”. The dealership I bought it from said it could be anything from a transfer case, to a random sensor, so I took it to a trusted mechanic...

  15. 3 Series & 4 Series
    I bought a used 2019 330i xDrive with 11,000 miles on Carvana about 20 days ago. Before I can even take the paper tags off of my car I hit a pothole and popped my front passenger tire. Being new to BMW and AWD I have ran into the “you need to change all 4 tires since it’s AWD” situation. 2...

  19. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    Bought this super clean E70 from an auction w/ 45K miles on it back in the summer with the MIL lamp illuminated. The vehicle runs great but has this "gremlin" that pops up from time to time, usually under a hard acceleration off-idle. The "REDUCE ENGINE POWER" message appears in the info center...
  20. BMW News
    The vogue for AWD sports cars is, in the grand scheme of things, relatively recent. The nature of driving with four wheels rather than two means that one of the most classic sports car show off techniques has changed. Fortunately, the BMW M8 is capable of turning the front axle on and off, so...
