Sorted! :) Regarding your wiper blades, I'm guessing that they were a bit different then. The drivers side is about a foot longer on my E92!

Just a quick update. My windscreen was replaced yesterday with official BMW glass. It was raining tonight and the wipers are working perfectly. The difference is enormous.

I've circled the bubble in this photo to make it clearer. I'll include the original image too as the red circle kind of obscures the bubble. Is this definitely the lens?

Windshield Replacement - Auto Wiper Problems

I had a high pitched whining in my 6 month old e92 when turning the wheel at low speeds. The sealer seemed to recognise the problem when I described it over the phone. He lubricated something in my...

It will also depend on the rim. If your rims have a diamond cut finish, refurbs will be more expensive and are unlikely to ever be completely invisible. If they're standard painted alloys then a good...

My car isn't here at the moment so I can't check, but I don't think that's the case. If I lock the car then I can't open the trunk. I have to hit the unlock button before the trunk will open.

I won't. Because I have an iPod touch connected to the USB port. It's in the armrest compartment and I don't ever open it.

Haha. I was thinking he coulda borrowed an iPhone for a couple of minutes. Didn't realise it wouldn't work on his year though.

Ah I see. My maintenance pack doesn't cover breaks, clutches or wiper blades. It's pretty much just oil changes and the routine servicing work.
