With 28,000 miles on an xDrive, it's likely too soon. Think pan, filter, and fluid at either 50,000 or 60,000 mile intervals.

However, with an xDrive, you should really think about changing the...

I can't speak to the INPA readout. There are all sorts of anecdotal stories of high mileage cars having transmissions burps when the first fluid change comes at or past 100k miles.

If it's a turbo failure due to the wastegates, it's not goodwill, it's a full-on warranty repair at no charge, billed to BMWNA by the dealer.

The warranty on the turbochargers was extended to 8 yrs / 80,000 miles if the failure is related to the wastegates (and a fair number have been). "Generic" turbo failures (bearing failure or the...

Yup, those are correct. The T-spare sits right in the middle between those 2 sizes. You've got a bit of a spread between the 16" and the 18", but it's under 1/2% from the mean. You may well see...

No, he's not. You don't have to match tire size, you need to match tire diameter. The tread width and sidewall height don't mean a thing to the AWD system. As long as the wheel is rotating at the...

Nope. You need to keep the same overall rolling diameter (or rolling circumference, if you prefer). Wheel size doesn't matter. Tire size does. A 135/80-17 temporary spare has the appropriate...

Well, rotation direction is easy to check. It's clearly marked on the side of the tire if the tire is uni-directional (and the LM-60 is). You would just need to go look. If two or four of the...

Yup, the fuel pump is out to 10 years / 120,000 miles. There's been a recall and the new ones are functioning well. Don't sweat it.

YMMV on extended warranties. I don't buy them.

Huh. Didn't know that. I knew the 335is added cooling, but I thought it was more oil, not additional water.
