    Hi folks. I have had my E90 for 6 months now, and for the first 3 I never noticed any oil under the car. It had a turbo replaced after just 1 week of owning it and since them I've noticed oil underneath the car and also on the road. I thought at first the sump plug had not been given new washer...

    I was removing the undertray and saw this was covered in oil, with oil clearly on the part of the undertray located beneath it. I was wondering what it was, and whether it should be covered in oil? If not, what should I do about it? (It's located on the right hand side of the vehicle, behind...

    Just searching the net for my next little project, I noticed on my last few hours (!) under my E61 2004 530d that the front suspension components are looking a little worn. I have found a site in the USA that stocks Meyle products for a fairly good price - however the USA did not get the E61...

    Hi again guys, 2nd thread of the day. I have noticed that I have some kind of clonking noise coming from under the car somewhere, this happens after braking generally at low speed and sounds a bit like driving over a loose manhole cover (thats what I thought it was to start with). When I brake...

    Found the source to the mysterous leak under my battery in the boot in my E92, there's a hole under the petrol filler cap. It looks like it is definitely meant to be there but where the water gets into the 'flap' on the car, because of the design of the petrol tank, there is an angle and I...

    I have recently bought a 1196 328i tourer. I have had a lot of knocking coming from what sounds like under the driver side. I called out the RAC and they advised me the rear bushing were gone and to get them replaced. I did this and also had the roll bar mount changed as well. The problem...

    hi i have just bought a 320d se touring 2005, and 2 weeks later have noticed a drip, rather than a leak from the underside, about half way down, not under the engine, around the middle. is it just air conditioning, or should i be worried, not a lot of water lying and coolant tank seems ok.
