Customer Question
Recently bought a 2007...

Recently bought a 2007 BMW 328Xi coupe with auto trans. Replaced rotors to eliminate pulsing during braking and that worked. Have vibration while driving between 20 and 40 MPH. Had wheels balanced and discovered two bent rims on driver side. Replaced all 4 wheels and bought two new tires to make all 4 match to help XDrive. Still have vibration at slow speeds in traffic and made appointment today to have tranny drained, new fluid, and filter. Have read this problems does exist with other owners of same car. Any advice????

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the brakes? How many miles on the car?

Not sure on age of pads but they did appear to have little wear. Miles 101,000.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 328i Coupe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not repairing myself. All done with my longtime mechanic guys. Tranny work to be done at Transmission shop near me. Other than rotors, new wheels, and tires; nothing else so far.
