I hope your insurance fixes your car and leaves it like new. I'm not for animal cruelty, but I would seriously track that SOB down and put some lead in it.

The E60 is a great car, and I can truly say I like it more than the F10 (had an F10 loaner for a week, nice but not what we want). Just got our car washed and waxed, love looking at it!

Do you mean remove the entire windshield and put it back on, or the sensor?

I can't speak about the sensor, but to move a windshield you'll need an auto glass shop. Probably $100 in labor as long...

That doesn't seem like throwing, that sounds like slingshot. Any security cameras around? I'm assuming your car is outside not by choice.

There should be a Daylight Running Lamp option in your iDrive, make sure that is checked. If you have your headlights on auto, I believe the xenons will kick on when the car sees it getting dark. If...

Find a very reputable body shop in your area. You're paying for a complete bumer respray and any sanding (if it was deep enough to need sanding). I think $400-500 would be more reasonable.

Wayneious, what did you do to your paint in that picture? I've never seen silver look that good. Also, what is the "smooth out rear bumper" mod?

You have the N52 engine, 3.0 liter straight six. It's the same engine on the e90 328i. Not a lot of performance mods, if you ask about that people will say you should have gotten a 535i / 550i.

Ok, see if you can find the very specific spot that is giving you trouble. I have had some luck with silicone spray and plastic on plastic or plastic on metal creaking.

My point was, they're telling the owner of a 535i that he has a N20 engine, a 4 cylinder engine that didn't appear until model year 2012 cars. That's as likely as my 528i having a V12. Who engine...

A BMW decoder says this about your engine:

Well, open the hood and see what's in there. N20 is a little four cylinder turbo. How many cylinders does your car have? Look at the intake manifold.

An N20 motor is BMW's new turbo 4 cylinder. Are you telling us you have a turbo 4 inside your e60 535i? That chassis never saw that engine. I don't think that could be possible.

I understand what you mean, our car is no 535i/550i, but it does daily driving and spirited driving quite well, and the inline 6 sings well when you wind it out.
