I've been having a hard time with the decision making process as well.

Some older Mercedes can be stout bulletproof vehicles. Some older E and S classes in the earlier 2000ish era if I recall correctly. The original target audiences however are world's apart.

And this applies only to the front brakes?

I don't notice this effect on the rears, and I don't recall my X3 having this type of design on either of its brakes either.

(Thanks for the input!)

At your price range, to be honest, strictly from a reliability standpoint, I'd almost recommend looking at a 2009+ 328 instead of a 335.

Yeah, it's not as big a hoot to drive, but there's a little...

Once that comes on and you're sure everything is replaced correctly, maybe have the sensor reset?

Coils are a bit more expensive. I was thinking they were like $45 a piece? I could be off on that though.

Well, in that case, I 'think' ecstuning sells a coil+spark plug replacement set for around $360? Buy that and do it yourself. Might as well if you've got the whole thing opened up.

2012, not under warranty?

I had a bad coil replaced under warranty, and I've got a 2011 with 75k miles. (CPO, but wouldn't think a 2012 is out of its first 50k just yet)
