There is no denying that the BMW M3 models are extremely well made vehicles. That said, like all cars, the M3 has its quirks. After 27 years on the road there are very few complaints with this sport coupe.
The issues most commonly reported include:
Leaks in the Power Steering Hose – The M series vehicles have been known to experience power steering hose leaks. In some cases multiple hoses will leak at once. All leaky hoses will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
Noisy Differential – If you hear a rubbing noise during tight turns the most likely cause is the limited slip differential. Replacing the fluids with a specialty BMW oil may fix the problem, but [...]
And like any great rear-wheel drive vehicle, the M3 likes to step out predictably when you disengage the traction control. I’m no drifting expert, but I feel like every month I’m improving as a driver, learning new things about the car and finding new limits to its grip.

Recently we have gotten a lot of questions regarding Airbag warning lights on BMW‘s. Here is a little more information about it:
NHTSA issues an airbag warning to 7.8 million cars impacted by the Takata airbags recall which affects certain Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors vehicles.
Takata informed the companies earlier this month that faulty inflators may have slipped through the cracks and been delivered to manufacturers because of faulty record-keeping.
“The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urges owners of certain Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors vehicles to act immediately on recall notices to replace defective Takata airbags,” the agency said in a statement Tuesday, adding there should be particular urgency in areas of high humidity such as Florida, [...]

New and Used Chevrolet and Cadillac in Greensboro, NC
The new Cadillac ATS coupe is the lovely, delightfully adept product of a Hobson’s choice. Luxury-coupe sales are stagnant, yet here comes a new luxury coupe because there are really no alternatives. At least the new ATS coupe is a hottie that’s gratifying to drive.
Here is the backstory: It’s so expensive to engineer a new platform that no company does it for just one mainstream model. After the high-volume sedan is developed, its guts usually get stuffed into another model as quickly and cheaply as possible. That leverages the component set with yet another new product that can reach a different customer, bringing in more sales at relatively little cost.
Thus, the BMW 3-series sedan, at which the four-door ATS is squarely aimed, [...]
Overview: The M3 is a legend in the world of performance cars, giving enthusiasts everywhere reason to speak in gushing superlatives whenever given the chance. It’s even better now that the M3 has had a heart transplant in the guise of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six that makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque; it replaces the previous model’s 414-hp 4.0-liter V-8. To help you avoid confusion, the M3 badge is now applied only to sedan models; coupe and convertible models now wear the new M4 designation.
Sublime handling, turbo torque, baby DTM rear fender flares, comfortable all day long.

Save yourself a pot of gold by taking your BMW to a local independent BMW repair shop.
It can be a wee bit frustrating when your BMW is in need of servicing and you aren’t sure where to take it for quality repairs that won’t cost you a pot of gold.
Taking your BMW to a local independent BMW mechanic, versus the dealer, might just be your lucky charm because it can save you money and enable you to build a relationship with a trained technician working on your vehicle.
Save Some Green
By taking your BMW to an independent repair shop, you won’t have to worry about getting lucky on pricing because costs are generally lower than what the dealer charges.
No, not because of magic or that 4-leaf clover you picked out back, but because OEM parts are not marked up as much and because indy shops have lower hourly rates since overhead [...]
August isn’t just the last full month of summer, it’s also Brake Safety Awareness Month. If you’re planning on taking one last summer vacation before the season is over and before school starts, be sure to have your brakes checked out to keep you and your family safe on the road.
Brake Safety Awareness Month aims to encourage motorists to learn and be aware of the importance of having a safe brake system in their BMW.
We all know brakes wear and tear over time, so it’s important to stop into your independent BMW repair shop and have your brakes routinely checked for maintenance. Your qualified BMW mechanic will check the brake lining wear, fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of the hoses and brake lines, the brake dash and warning lights and perform other checks to correctly diagnose if there is a problem with your brake system.
Common warning signs that your BMW is needing [...]
According to this study, the most aggressive drivers are men, ages 35-50, who drive blue BMWs. The study also found that the most aggressive times on the roads are at 5:45pm on Fridays and the Monday morning commute. Imagine that!
In the study of 2,837 motorists, Land Rovers, Audis, Subarus and Vauxhalls were also on the “most aggressive” list, and the colors of black, silver, green and red followed the angry blue.
Drivers most often expressed road rage by shouting and swearing, followed by erratic driving and obscene gestures. Motorists were asked the pick the make and colour of car from which they have experienced the most incidents of road rage – and blue BMWs came out on top.
George Charles of VoucherCodesPro said: ‘During peak periods of traffic, whether it be the Monday morning school run or the hectic rush hour on a Friday evening, it is all too easy to allow the common [...]
