BMW 328i 2013: Faulty injector

Answered by CarsGuide 10 May 2019

I would only replace the faulty one, unless the others are suspect in which case it’s probably best to replace all of them.

Suspension knocking in new 328i

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Oct 2015

The response of carmakers amazes me at times. VW's current problem with its diesels is enough to tell you that some carmakers don't care about their customers once they've bought their cars and taken them home. It seems they then don't exist. BMW's response to you smacks of this attitude; I'd call it arrogance. It's not acceptable, as you say. Take the car back to the dealer and park it in their driveway and tell them to put up with it, or justify to your satisfaction that it is something inherent in all their cars. It sounds to me like it could be a bush problem, or a shock absorber issue. Whatever the cause it should be fixed.

Font suspension trouble - dealer won't listen

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Jan 2013

As the dealer has offered to recheck the car that is where you should start. It would seem that there is a fault with the strut or a bush in the suspension and the dealer can check those things. If that doesn't produce a resolution then you could approach BMW directly.

What's the difference

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Dec 2005

THE 1997 model was an upgrade of the E36 introduced in 1991. There were two 328i coupes -- the Executive and the High Line. The Executive boasted air, dual airbags, ABS, alloys, CD sound, cruise, alarm, fog lamps, leather wheel and trim, and traction control. The High Line added sports seats. They go through brakes and tyres and can have radiator problems.
