Easy decision for me. E39 M5 is only available in manual.

Advantage - my teenage son hasn't learned to drive a manual so the M is safe. I tried to teach him on a 79 911 and his foot got stuck...

That's one of the easiest questions I've seen here. If you can find a professional to do it for $400-$500 then let them. I wasn't given those rates.

Like you I had never done it. That's why I...

Activate auto hold and I bet it works as you recall. After my software update ASS only activates in park and with auto hold on. Much less intrusive. I'm not saying a word to BMW.

I have comfort access and you can still lock yourself out if you try really hard. Where there's a will to screw up there's a way. I think that's why BMW puts some control in the hands of the...

I used the 540 spring pad on my M5 when I added the PSS kit. I think it has to do with the spring diameter and fit at the top. There are some photos of the mounts in this link below. I'm not sure...

I get nothing but compliments on the sound of X3 35i. Several in my parking garage have turned around and been surprised to see a SUV and not a sports car. Actually an entire group in front of me...

I was a bit concerned about how you would get two pieces to align. I am not getting any spray in the engine with the seal on the bottom only.

I think he is saying the proximity of the ASS button to the start/stop button means it could accidentally be pressed.

I'm pretty sure it is. The dimensions are identical.
5/16" x 19/32. I don't see the model on the package I photo'd but the dimensions in the upper right match exactly.
