I am new here and this is my first BMW.
Anyway, I've had the car about 3 months and it runs great. However, I went to drive it today and it seems every time I go over even the smallest bump the wheel on the front passenger side slams down pretty hard. On smooth road it doesn't do it. No loss of steering control.
Any speculations as to what the problem could be? I want to have a clue when I bring it to the mechanic so I can avoid being ripped off.
Also, if you think you might know what the problem is; How much do think the repair will run me?
