    So I just bought 99' 318i with 222k on the clock. The overall look of the car seems very good. Interior is a bit dirty and near tires I can see that there was rust which was fixed with some kind of rust paste repair kit. Now this is my second car and Im not a car guy at all so I just blindly...

    I spent a couple hours on Sunday at the tire shop waiting for one of my tires to get patched due to a screw in the tread that started leaking air when I pulled it out. They did a good job with the repair, but didn't really balance the tire and so highway driving was pretty rough, especially...
  3. Suspension & Braking
    About a month ago, I began to have this unusual problem with an unknown source. The entire car will begin to shake almost as if driving over rumble strips (seems to be originating from the rear). As the title says, it is most noticeable in first gear and above 5k rpm but ONLY if the car is...

    so i'm cruising (70 mph's) along last night when I go over a slightly lower section of the road that adjust back to normal size within the cars length. My heart starts racing and my car starts vibrating (50-70 mph's). Immediately I pull over to check tire pressure and rims. Both seem fine. I...
