Question about 2006 BMW M3
Hi yesterday bought a bmw coupe for my gf,on the way back home felt a smell of burning rubber.when stoped saw a smoke coming out of the rear wheel.when i phoned the guy i bought car from,he told that its a handbrake stuck on because the car was standing and not used for a while and they ( handbrake pads possibly) needs just knocking off a bit.So my question is it really the issue or the problem is something else?Thank you
Hi from the uk considering what you say in your post and this is a present for your g/f may i suggest for her safety that you have a qualified mechanic take a look at the cars brakes and steering/suspension components and give you an unbiased written report on the above for peace of mind also to ensure it is safe for g/f to drive considering age of car and how long it has been stood/off road ??? last time serviced etc ? there are many things to consider if vehicles are layed up for long periods such as deteriation of belts brakes and steering parts seizure as the answer you were given as to why rear brake/s were stuck ??on seems he knew this?? and maybe other problems which will be discovered if you have safety inspection/report ? and will be worth it knowing g/f is safe on highways (posing ? ) hope this helps and at the end of the day car is a good buy best wishes from uk
