Cleaning the glass with Invisible Glass (or another ammonia-free glass cleaner) can help, too. Sometimes, it could just be grime that built-up over time that sort of "freezes" if the glass is cold,...

I think the chestnut brown suits the luxurious nature of the 7 better, as long as you contrast it with a darker color like black. It's totally possible to get your interior to look similar, but you...

Have you been able to fix it yet? The motor part of the steps says that the seat needs to be removed, but I'm not sure if just tilting the seat back all of the way would do the trick.

You should be able to twist the cap off. If you don't believe me, I've attached the manual. Check page 209.

As long as your oil is below minimum level, you should be okay. If I recall correctly,...

Yes, it is true that you have to drop the bumper. However, $1,500 is way too much. I have no idea what they would be charging for.

If you're wondering what the process is like, take a look at...

The only way you could activate from the front seat is calling it through voice command. I think it's easier to have a passenger do the work on iDrive from the back though

Between the E66 7-Series and the W221 S-Class, I would choose the S-Class since the E66 may feel too much like your current E66.

I would say wait it out until you can at facelift S550. If...

I love the Continental DW's. They do have a softer sidewall, which may hinder steering feel if you have a smaller diameter wheel, but for most of us with 19+ inches, they're just as good as a harder...

Active Roll Stabilization? ARS controls minimizes body roll during cornering.

I believe it shares the same fluid system as the power steering.
