You're a little high, but not out of line... just my opinion. I don't know how gas is priced in your area, but in mine premium is over $4.00 per gallon right now. That's going to turn some buyers off.

For those who think that the forum's search feature sucks, are you using "Tag search" or "Advanced search?" The "tag search" does suck... I've found the "advanced search" to be very useful.

Yeah, right... the 540i is really nose heavy. They have a 50/50 weight distribution last time I checked. You keep telling yourself you can take one in the twisties if that's what makes you happy.

You're right... it's supposed to cool the condenser, not the compressor. I haven't had my morning caffeine bump. Either way, the OP needs to replace his aux fan.
