Yea. The drain is clogged. It has a flap on the end that sticks shut.

The drain hose is next to the exhaust behind heat shields. I flipped it up and a cup of water came out.

550i - how long to OEM shocks/struts last?

I am up to 105k on my 2007 550i sport. Suspension still feels great, however given I plan on owning this car for a long time, when do the OEM shocks/struts typically need to be replaced?
