I use Malco cleaner and conditioner found in detail shops. You won't find it at the big box stores. Easy to use and smells great like leather .

I put Michelin A/S 3 on my 2009 528 I and I love them. Smooth, quiet, good in the wet, fair in snow. Great all around all season tire, IMHO.

I don't care what the F10 lovers say, the E60 is the most gorgeous car on the road. The multiple "look backs" after she's parked just never gets old.

The Bosch Icon blades have a funky connector that I don't care for. Costco does not sell a battery for the E60. I've used Akebono Euro ceramic pads with great results.

Notice the word pcy used....changed...not flushed. Flushing a transmission is never a good idea especially on a vehicle with 97K. Just do/have done, everything related to a CHANGE.

Left low beam headlight, left turn signal, and left brake light not working!

I haven't gotten the letter yet and it's been weeks since the recall was publicized. When are they going out?
