I never managed to get it that cheap but I'll try next time. :) I used to do the "I'm going to cancel" ritual every three months but that got old. I figured $8/month was fair even though I really...

I don't know why a dealership GM would be driving around in a seven year old used car, but OK.

I don't believe referring to other forums is permitted so Google "dracon 2015 map updates". Updating the maps is very, very easy.

I'm assuming you checked for a blown fuse, right? Check the fuse diagram in the trunk to be sure, but it may be fuse #63 (located in the fuse box in the trunk)

Less than $300 for four slotted/drilled rotors, ceramic pads, and sensors seems way too low, even for a group buy. Their rotor/pad kits (without sensors) are usually around $500. Hopefully you...

The car's mileage is stored in several locations to help prevent tampering, i.e., mileage rollback. If your odometer says you have 69.5K miles and the dealer read 110K miles, there's a good chance...

I believe they're M27x1.5mm and it's a very common part across most BMW product lines since the mid-90's so it will be very easy to find. The part number is 33411133785 and I think you need a 36mm...
