Powers steering leak, but easy fix, cut the factory clamps under the power steering reservoir and replace with adjustable, if you take to the dealer they will replace the houses that are very expensive. It will take two hours and less than five dollars
Hoses failed, took it to my BMW dealer and it will cost 2600.00 to replace all three hoses. Had to wait for hoses to come from Germany
