My wife LOVES my 650i Coupe. She has said many times it's her favorite car of mine - of all time. She's already pushing me to get another one as my next car.

Damn. It worked!! After a few miles, some good revs, a few restarts - the light went off. We shall see if it remains off. Another endorsement for Chevron Techron, another indicator of just how...
