05 545i to 07 550i

Unfortunately, I was involved in an accident and totalled my 545i. It wasn't bad, just front end damage, but that's all it took. Of course, this happened after I spent the $3,500 and replaced the...

The G37xS will smoke you out of the hole given the all wheel drive. Do not race from a stop. I can tell you I've pulled on my friend's 2nd gen G35, but I know the G37 has another 25 horsepower.

Try pushing the volume button and the eject button for the CD and DVD all together at the same time. This is how I get my idrive to reset on the rare occasion that it freezes up on me.
