2001 BMW 530i Q&A
2001 BMW 530i Question: Front lower ball joints?
I took my car into a shop (don't know them, first time customer) just to have the summer tires put on. The mechanic called to tell me my "front, lower ball joints were worn" and asked if I'd like a quote for repair. I have noticed NOTHING to indicate that they're worn. No shimmy, no shake, no pull, the car drives straight and smooth as glass. Is this guy trying to scam me because I'm a chick?? - BMWBich
Try asking around for references to another shop , still might get same answer , but it does improve the odds of it being correct. - ziptie12
