We use a regular car wash place off Lincoln blvd. We just ask them to hand-wash and they do a decent job. Need to find a good place to get it fully detailed though.

I've only done one ED (hopefully more in the future though) but I have first hand experience on how important a seasoned, well connected CA turned out to be.

I also have that throttle delay and don't like it. Can't believe the tester got a drivetrain malfunction though... I had quite a few of those on our old B7 (which BMW ended up replacing).

It's a lot of city driving, stop lights etc. Not that much WOT, just a lot of city. I wasn't expecting the Low Oil Level warning this soon. Our previous '13 B7 didn't need oil until approx 3,000...

LOL. Thanks. The residual was 61% when I ordered - that really made a difference. Not sure it's as strong now, but the MF is lower today.

You beat me to the post. Yes, B7 comes in all versions. I have the B7 LWB and love it. Considered the M5 but couldn't resist the legroom in a LWB 7-series (we have a kid).

I really like this option too. Surprised they don't have the drivers assistance package on that B7.



This is very true!

We got a "drivetrain malfunction" error while in Europe and they had to diagnose and replace a part for that. Apparently took them a while to figure out what it was and then get the part in.
