Just throwing this out there, for $3-5K you can get a cheap American SUV that has 4WD and use that as the snow (or it's going to hail) car, that's what I did.

There should be no charge to diagnose, it's a drivetrain issue. Worse case scenario is that they can't duplicate. Codes should be stored though. The charge for you is a $50 deductible.

That's the best thing to do when getting a pre-owned car. It's amazing what a high quality detail shop can do.

The E60 is a great car, and I can truly say I like it more than the F10 (had an F10 loaner for a week, nice but not what we want). Just got our car washed and waxed, love looking at it!
