Did you replace the speakers under the seat too? If so I heard that was a pain in the a$$?

I have a 2007 550i and I went from the ugly 17 inch stock 225 50s to a staggered 19 inch 275/35 in the rear and up front I have 245/40s. Unfortunately the fronts rub a little on big bumps with the...

A day or two after my recall work was done (07 550i) I received the SOS malfunction on my iDrive. Only happened one time and that was two weeks ago. So far so good. No other errors.

Well then I'm glad I was under CPO. They replaced the main engine fan. Everything around it looks new.

Yes there's probably no real way of knowing unless you have the car diagnosed or when you get TPMS valves in all of your tires. I know locally the dealer charges $65 or so just to diagnose.

Well let me clarify; I guess that's what I meant, it will not start right up. Not that it starts and dies or doesn't start at all.
