Yes, all good

My repair was perfect, great packaging, and after almost a year just great results. Funny, because I don't even think about the fact that I had bad pixels any more! I was concerned about scratches...

So there you have it

Your exposure is $550. Yes it is real money, but it is a game you want to play? Are you willing to play? No one on the internet can really net this out for you, it is your decision. If the shop...

Believe me or not

I have done the thrust arms, #4, on 4 each 5 series. Four 5 series. Three of my own 540i's and my son's M5. It is not difficult, but of course you must seach for the DIY's here. Spend a week...

I had mine replaced, also a 2000 540i, recently and the difference is astounding. Had my Indy do the adapation routine, because I read the same thing, basically you couldn't do it without software. ...

Sameo, sameo, more or less

Don't want to hijack this tread, but I have a 2000 540i and think maybe I have TPS issues. Have noted that you can't repair, just replace. My car at 74K miles, just recently have replaced plugs, O2...

I have a 2000, and just replaced the headlights and tailights with Depo from these guys. Good quality, you won't be disappointed. The tails are a 10 minute job, the headlights are more difficult. ...

Bilsteins are really stiff. They dampen on both up and down. Are not well suited to the sophisticated BMW suspension, in my opinion. My son has an M5 with Konis, and I have a 540i/6 with...

60% improvement

Thanks for the help. Cleaned the ICV and that helped, actually quite a lot. It wasn't stuck, but was pretty sluggish, when I rotated it in my hand. Will try the MAF next.
