BMWAudi Dude,

Have you read this post? You are answering a question no one is asking. My last question was about clearing codes.

Can you provide any more detail? Have you had this done before? By a BMW dealer? Did you change your oil sensor in the past? Did it have this same issue?

Good to know. Thanks for posting.

I feel bad for the guy that buys a car with high mileage oil and puts the normal stuff back in. Sounds like he's due for major trouble.

Just about any Continental, Bridgestone or Michelin standard tire is a great option. I like the pricing on Continentals.

The ride is so much better that you'll thank yourself later.

I think a more OEM look would be best. I prefer the M6 style rims the most on your car. You can find these for not that much money if you use a non-OEM knockoff.

I have an 08 650i and I changed the oil at 60,000 the other day. About two days later, the car says on iDrive it is out of oil - it isn't. Why did this happen so soon after my oil change?
