After almost exactly one year of having my car, I couldn't relate to the claims of bubbles and blown tires.

And just like that two tires in 3 days. Back to the dealer tomorrow.

+1 for leaving it out of range. If you take a while to wash, wax etc. you may get a low battery warning. Happened to me the first time washing this car.

JB4 Stage 2 installed! A Must have for all F10 535i!

I'd also like to hear more on this. I understand there are differences in people's abilities to install but how can the ranges be from 5 minutes to an hour and a half?

Hmm but I can't play videos from my phone when it's connected via a cable to the USB port and my car is coded and does play via a USB key.

So are ppl loving the side bolsters?

Thanks for rubbing it in. That's the thing I miss the most from my E60. Well that and the stance/no wheel gap.

Full screen in Iphone video playback?
