And if you have a noise, you're going to need to take it to a shop. Diagnosing that long...

Get the car that makes the most sense, put in the fuel it needs, and if the company won't pay the entire bill, then make a deal with them to pay the difference yourself.

Perhaps someone here can tell you if you can separate the lens from the cluster. You should be able to do that and avoid replacing the instruments.

Only. Go. To. A. REAL. Shop.

Or DIY. While you DIY, feel free to curse BMW with every inventive term you know for their idiocy in removing the dipstick.

Also a good reason to keep the stock BMW plastic valve caps.

Remember, most of the people you will talk to about this have never read the manual, so they're speaking from past experience and hearsay. The manufacturer knows the car best.
