Replacing the 'pan' on the bottom though? I've never seen anything other than a remove drain plug, let drain, replace drain plug, remove fill plug, fill to overflowing, replace fill plug arrangement.

Wow. I've changed this fluid in probably 2/3 of the cars I've owned long term. I think I'll leave this one to the pro's. That's a pretty complex process.

If you're okay having a giant BMW written across it, the dealer has one. If like me you're not cool with that, you'll have to buy generic. I wish someone made a custom fit one that wasn't branded.

Took me 4 months to find a non-black interior 535i XDrive (was also looking for 2012 - 2014, early this spring). I'm in Michigan, and ended up having to drive 4 hours to buy a car. Keep the faith!

BMW SA "Yeah, the freon just evaporates every 3 years, you don't have a leak."

I was confronted with this idiocy yesterday. They seemed to try and explain it like it was a "feature" so I wouldn't have old freon in my system. I'm continually amazed at how bad the service is at...
