  1. General BMW Discussions
    Good afternoon everyone, Last weekend, my beloved BMW 218i Gran Tourer was stolen from outside my house (in North East London) after a break in.

    Hello, So ive booked car in for an alignment on Monday but the guy at the shop said it would be best if all the tyres had the same amount of tread. He goes if the rear right is low then the front left wheel will be out of spec and vice versa etc. Honestly, i fail to understand how tyre tread...

    Hi guys, I drive a 2005 320D E90. I've noticed in the last 3 months that when I brake the steering wheel vibrates and it's getting worse. I don't notice any vibrations anywhere else other than in the steering wheel. It happens at low speeds ~50km/h and high speeds 120km/h All pads were...

    I've been living with this little oddity for about a year now. It's not something that really concerns me, but pops up sometimes. I do appreciate the stock handling of an E90 320D is probably like a bus compared to other models, however, I do get this odd feeling sometimes. It doesn't seem to...

    Is there anyone in the Bath area who knows or would recommend anyone offering wheel alignment, camber tracking locally? My nearside rear seems to have rather a lot of negative camber and has worn the inside edge of the tyre badly so feel the whole lot needs checking properly. Many thanks for...

    Afternoon all. I'm new to the forum so bare with me. Having just recently purchased a 318D 2011 with only 35k on the clock I've noticed when motorway driving there is like a deep noise bit like the sound of a drum (which I believe is coming from the front). The car does pull to the right...

    Anyone able to figure out a way to track new orders through the BMW UK site? Been given a 12 week timeframe, of which I'm at week 1 :fearful: Any experience of this being a realistic schedule or is it a worst case?

    Hi guys, Problem, the car wanders badly on uneven roads and at speed. I just had my lollipops bushes changed to poly, and had the RTAB's changed also. I put a set of meyle HD lollipops on the car, but these were ruined within 6 months. Tracking was checked and deemed okay. I had it huntered a...
