    So I had oil leaking from my valve cover gasket seal, around the spark plug area, flooding the spark covers and coils in oils. My car has done 147K Miles and I don't believe it's had the cover replaced previously, so I replaced the whole cover, with a new gasket, new bolts, all BMW OEM...

    Hi all, I have to replace all 4 corners brake pads, needless to say BMW want over €300 for them which is madness. I am wondering what are the best OE brake pads out there instead of the BMW OEM ones. Otherwise OEM it will be but ideally not from a BMW dealer. I would appreciate any...

    Hi, I had the recall done for the EGR Cooler on my F10. The Cooler is on the front and my understanding is that the issue was oil/coolant leak that could catch fire. My car obviously did not but when it went in for a cracked spring at BMW they had to do the recall as well. Anyway, since I got...
