HI, asking for a friend. Very hard to find a relevant search topic.

 

His 528i has smoke coming out of bonnet

 

 

brought in to performance, they say i have engine oil leak, coolant leak, radiator spoil, aircon filter torn, battery weak. all need to change

 

 

Other than R2D which I'm aware of, are there any specialist WS in other parts of singapore?

 

The beemer fans are welcome to reply hehe

Nurburgring. Look for Jack-San. They're pretty good. And not saying this because they're our advertiser.  [flowerface]

between juzz4cars and R2D, i will choose R2D

 

smoke at bonnet is likely due to the rubber gasket hardened+cracks at engine area.

Engine oil leaks to hot turbo part, causing some sizzling of engine oil spills 

 

change cost around $600+ (for F30)

half day job

usually every 3~5 years needs change

if still can drive down, mostly radiator not burst,

maybe some coolant dry marking, ad ask u to change ( u know their pattern)

 

in any case, since might be coolant problem,  

advice to keep looking at the temperature, 

dun drive until overheat engine jam, still dun know,
