    Hello everyone, I've a 2006 525d M Sport which I bought around two months ago and I love it. However I've noticed a noise which is like a "wa-wa-wa-wa-wa" type hum from the front nearside when I turn right and goes louder when I go faster. My friend thinks it's a wheel bearing and so I was...

    After 6 years with an e46 I am finding the e91 I acquired in the New Year noisy at speed. A sort of thrumming which changes as the roadspeed changes. Sounds just like the sort of bearing noise you get from the back of a front-drive vehicle like a QuashKai (sorry can't spell this junk-heap) I...

    Looking to put some new wheel bearings into my 535i. Anyone got any recommendations out of the rather extensive list on Ebay? They seem to go from about £30 upwards but its not easy to tell what's good and what's made from silly putty.

    I (quite obviously) don't have much engine experience so am really hoping someone can shed some light on a horror I found yesterday when replacing my valve cover gaskets. I happened to notice that the nuts for the three cam caps on the intake cam, closest to the front (labelled E, E2 and E3)...

    My 330D touring needed new wheel bearings and despite looking all over I couldn't quite find who the original part supplier was.
