    Hey guys, Bought my 325i a month ago, drove and felt absolutely perfect. Only done 3 long journeys, the last one being a couple of weeks back - it's at 78K miles and hasn't had any previous issues regarding sounds or performance. About a week ago, I noticed an odd tapping sound when I was...

    After over a year worth of thousands of dollars of near-monthly diagnostics, I turn to the online BMW community to help me solve a tapping which has thus far been a complete mystery to all the euro-specialized mechanics who have looked into it. The tapping happens under very specific...

    A few days ago I heard a tapping from the engine, sounded like lifter tap. I went to check the oil and it was somehow 2.5 quarts low! I refilled the oil and the noise is gone and the car seems to be running much more smoothly. The oil light has never come on over the past 6 months since my...
