That's very common but usually easily corrected. Hold the middle down and pull on one side it while you push it down over the metal lip. By the time you reach the end you'll be able to easily push...

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...

+1. I have a feeling that's exactly what happened. I wouldn't have known that had I not watched the BavAuto installation video.

The 535Xi front suspension is completely different and I believe the thrust / control arm on your car doesn't come with the ball joint like it does on the 535i. Double check to be sure, but I...

Definitely not too far gone for fine sanding / repolishing. If you have condensation in the headlight, remove the headlight (VERY easy to do in a E60 -- do a search), dry it out with a hairdryer,...

Just ask the shop that did the work if they reset the transmission adaptations. Any shop familiar with working on BMWs will know exactly what you're asking.

Assuming the correct fluid was used, the transmission will adapt by itself to some extent and should smooth out over the next hundred miles or so. It's always better to reset the transmission...

You're better off just replacing the control arm and if you want to save some bucks, do the work yourself. It's a pretty straightforward DIY (watch the BavAuto video). I got decent Moog arms for...

Yes, very surprising. I figured I'd have a bent or cracked rim or two at a minimum. I think the fact that I hit the curb at an angle at a relatively low speed and I have Conti DWS tires with...

The edge of each headrest can be manually folded inwards quite a bit to cradle / wrap around the driver's / passenger's head. Is that what you're taking about? If so, there's nothing wrong with...

Your thermostat may be stuck open if you're car is only around 150F at idle. I believe the thermostat is designed to open around 185F and normal operating temperature for the engine is around 200F.
