So you'll need front pads, rotors, and a sensor. ~$25 for sensor, $350 for the two rotors, and ~$120 for pads.

Is this just for pads, or pads and rotors? Front, rear, or both? Its a reasonable price...not sure what you were expecting when buying a 5 series. You'll need one sensor for the front, and one for...

Do your systems not have IR sensors to make sure nothing is in the way before closing?

Not sure what point you're trying to make here. It was the mats, they found no issues with the vehicles. Just because US media went nuts (as usual) doesn't make the problem real.

I have never, after owning 5, had one not start. I'm confused why you're still driving a BMW if all the ones you owned were/are so unreliable. Why own a car that could randomly not start?

Yeah, he has a thing against BMW reliability, from his comments. Dunno why everyone is trying to scare the OP. I got my first E46 with ~150K miles on it, at 18. It required basic maintenance, which I...

They hand wash? Every dealer I've been to has an automatic car wash. The problem is that they aren't usually touchless.

They did that to my car once. They then had to call someone in to polish it, and never washed my car again.

I don't care what Kelly says, just looking at the numbers, there are 6 LCI's available in my area for $15k. A bunch of 06's for ~$7k. So no, that price is not "too good to be true"; a car is only...

Pretty sure its a myth. I first changed the fluid on my E46 at over 200K miles - became very smooth, and no slippage when I sold it 250k miles.

Thank you for that very scientific analysis. Why don't I just take some cash and sprinkle it into a fire every 3,000 miles? Would have the same benefit as following your 3,000 mile oil interval.

If you don't have a suitable space, then just take it a shop. Risking your life over an oil change is silly.
