Here is my $0.02 for a guy who traded in his 750 for a LS460.

As someone said in this thread, the LS is a great appliance. It always starts, never disappoints, and is virtually invisible.

Your dealer will do it for free, hased on your car's computer. Why are you bothering with this stuff? Especially if you cannot locate the oil drain plug???

I had a Conti kit, which did not do much when I got a sidewall gash. Now I have a Slime Kit from AMZN for about $45.

Be ready with your Roadside Assistance Number, however.

Whatever you do, don't remove the rear wood shelf. Your car will instantly turn into a Chines knockoff, no longer a real Bimmer.

What is IIRC? and CBE?

My car suddenly shows the same symtoms, even though all the individual items seem OK.

Does BMW Extended Warranty cover it?

I decided to change to Continental DSW tires from Pirelli RFTs due to the harsh ride, and low life of Pirellis. I was aware of the risk one takes when riding without a spare on Non RF Tires.

If it's still under warranty, you will get a few new injectors. Make sure they attach the fuel lines correctly. Mine sprung a leak. If it is not under warranty, apply for a line of credit now.
