The smooth European ride of a BMW allows you to glide across the lanes or any road you may travel. Founded in Germany in the early 1900’s, they are known for luxury vehicles and motorcycles. My favorite part about BMW is the many acronyms people have made up over the years. I pulled a few from their forum: "Barbarian Motor Works, Bring Me Women, Broke My Wallet, Busted My Wrench, Be My Wife". Here is a list of known problems we see in BMW.
BMW - Window Doesn’t Work
The BMW window stopped responding and did not roll up or down. This is not convenient, especially if you ever go through a drive through. The most common problem we see with BMW windows are the window motor and regulators. We remove the door panel, inspect and confirm what components have failed, and guarantee our work for 3 years and/or 36,000 miles. In the case this is electrical, we can test the main window switch and even the module when applicable.

BMW Coolant Leak
If your BMW is overheating while driving or running too hot, you most likely have a coolant leak. The cooling system is very complex but we have seen common issues with the plastic heater hoses. They seem brittle and tend to crack over time. Other common cooling system problems for BMW’s are cracks in the coolant reservoir, leaking water pumps, and faulty radiator caps. If your BMW is overheating, pull over immediately. If you run the engine too hot it will threaten the integrity of your engine and potentially cause more harm than necessary. If completely neglected, you could blow the engine completely.
