You should just change the rotors with the pads. Rotors SOMETIMES last two pads, but they will most likely be under-sized by the time the 2nd pads wear out. This is pretty much by design.

Bull****. There are fewer problems than with non-sulev, as the parts are designed to last 150K. Now, if one of the parts (gas tank, radiator, couple others) fail, the parts are more expensive, but...

That's the perfect size for tires - that's the OEM size for staggared tires, for both RWD and xDrive. Not sure about the rims - might be a bit wider than stock but it's not going to matter.

Surprised that they didn't soak it in cleanser to get rid of it - that's what they're doing in the US/CA for the Carbon Build Up for the 335d/X5d M57 engine. May not really have been any cheaper,...

I agree with the guys saying: "no, don't buy it". Yeah, it's cheap, but it's pretty beat up and not running. There is no way a transmission rebuild for $800 is going to be a permanent solution;...

Mileage is pretty irrelevant; even gas engines will go 250K or more and I'm pretty sure that the M57 will go that pretty easily. Only reason to look at mileage is to ask the question: "if the SCR...

That indy is blowing smoke. The reason to register batteries is due to physical characteristics of the battery itself, and has nothing to do with the electronics that it's running.

Pretty early - most are at 40K-50K. The E9x and later rears do go earlier than the fronts, as BMW seems to be using them for anti-dive, and the ADB/ediff uses them a lot.
