    Hi if this has been posted somewhere else sorry but have found out there is a recent recall for the 6 series e63, phoned up my local BMW dealer and booked my car in, they told me they will need the car for half a day something to do with the battery cable . Would be a good idea to check to see...

    Hi Everyone, I'm having some trouble with my 2014, 4 series coupe. There is a lack of responsiveness & understeer in the car's steering. I've had tie rods & tie rod ends changed, multiple alignments & steering angle resets done from different garages, nothing changed. Front tyres were bald...

    Recently just purchased my first bmw, 2006 e90 320i, right from the start I noticed the handling was very irratic, the car pulls to the right and is gallopy on straight roads and floaty over any sort of uneven road surface. When I say floaty the car moves left or right in an erratic and...

    Hi all. I'm gonna keep this one short and sweet.. Picked the M3 up from the garage today after getting a full service. I had the tyres changed, the engine cleaned, filter changes etc etc. In a straight line from 0 to 70, perfect. Any quicker than that, the car wobbles from side to side like I'm...

    Hi I had to have 4 new run flat tyres at weekend and tracking which was all done. I noticed at moderate to high speed, there was a very noticeable kind of 'slide' as I overtook cars on the motorway - scary. the car seemed to have lost the dead straight movement, the crisp turn with the whole...

  8. E46
    Hi, I thought it was just normal to have weird handling on a convertible but it don't take much to get mine to misbehave so some doubts are creeping in On smooth roads it's perfect but get it on bumpy twisty b-roads thems it's a different animal, it seems like the front wheels wobble in corners...

    I know the Z3 is never going to be a sports car but is there any way to improve the handling? Mine is a 1999 2.8. What are the recommendations for improvement? 1). I am not looking to lower the car but would like to stop the wallowing feeling and generally slack feeling at the back. 2). If...

    Right, will do my best to explain this and need some advice on what it is likely to be: When cornering under hard acceleration the front end of my bmw seems to slip suddenly and needs major correction to catch it and control the car. I have changed the rear front wishbone bushes for poly ones...

    Hi all, My 328i is suffering from somewhat soft and vague handling, a squeaky right rear end, and a klonky rear end on the whole. Having just replaced the tyres all round I need to get a 4-wheel alignment done as the fronts were badly worn on their outer edges. Before the alignment I need to...

    for ages ive had problems with the car "wondering" over un-even roads, at high speeds on particularly bad roads it can be a bit scary! I've had it up in the air and cant find any play in anything, front or back. front rear control bushes have been replaced, and it recently had new rear springs...

    Purchased the wifes 2007 330d on thurs as It was hers she has been driving it. I drive it on Monday morning and was on a B road which I use on a regular basis. I found when the road angles changed the steering would pull hard with angle of the road. Is this how the E90's handle? I've driven lots...

    My 323 has just had an mot. Well October and it passed with no advisories. However the steering and handling is lethal ! I mean it wants to steer it self an is very scuttly, like its trying jump all over the road. It's ok on smooth surfaces but anything else is bad. Tracking is out as the...

    Followed an old mgb into 2 lane fairly rural rounderbout, he was in lane 1 and I in lane 2. I carried enough speed to ensure I would be in front of him without getting in his way as we both exited as the lanes murged to just one. Having driven an MGB in the wet and dark in the past, I thought...

    There's a slight problem on my 328i Coupe in that if going quite fast for eg through a bendy rural road esp. an S bend type road, the car then feels very vague and no feedback comes through the steering. There is no oversteer / understeer, but the closest I can describe is that it feels like...
