At 74k miles on my '05 545, having used the same dealer for service since 9k, and having dropped in repeatedly because the oil light was on and being told it was normal to "top it off", I got a new...

you mean beyond taking it out, blowing on it, and rubbing it on my sleeve? no.

What would you recommend?

Any way to know if Nav drive is bad, or just DVD?

About a year ago I started having to occasionally eject the DVD and reinsert to make the nav work. Eventually, that stopped working. Now all I see is "please insert DVD". It's a 2008 w/ about 55k...

Thanks for the reply. The noise actually seems to be getting fainter, and less frequent. Do you think that's consistent with your dust plate diagnosis?

Weird noise upon turning

Weird, whining, metallic noise upon making a sharp left turn. Only happens at low speed...i suppose because you wouldn't make a turn that sharp at high speed. So turning left into a parking space,...

I think it's the miles. That's a lot of miles for an '08. I imagine most people who have set their search parameters for '08 are looking for fewer miles. Dropping the price under the $20k mark...

FYI - What BMW wheels cost!!

I can't believe one small pothole made a 1 1/2 crack in the middle of my 19" wheel. I also can't believe the local dealer wants $750 for a replacement.

Thanks Nick at Factory Wheel Warehouse...

I don't think you overpaid THAT much. A CPO adds about $3k to the price of a car. And trade-in vs. retail subtracts 10-15%. So...start at 31, take off $3k for CPO and another $3k for 1/2 year...
