Good choice going with M-Technic, that's how I had mine and definitely no M5 wannabe. Too bad about your aftermarket rear bumper.

So, let me get this straight. The compressor clutch is engaging when you turn on the A/C but no cold air? Is that right? So, how long does it stay engaging? for as long as you leave it?

Yes and no. But don't bring your car Aamco for A/C check. Are you going to trust them to work on your BMW cooling system?

Get your car to someone who knows BMW.

You can use single prong but I recommend you should go with NGK plugs and at the least get the Platinum or the even longer life the iridium. Those two should last 50K miles or even more.
