Radio Failure - Seeking Advice

Is there supposed to be HD radio in this car? Perhaps it is just that module which is separate.

Or maybe you can add HD. It takes over the tuning functions so maybe it would work.

Getting all these things fixed then walking away from the car ? Sillyness.

Unless you can afford a brand new 535 you are in an enviable position.

'08 535xi lag question

I think you just need to learn to drive differently. Flooring it from a near stop, in normal automatic gear, going past the kick down is just asking for drivability Issues I think.

WOW! Cobb installed

Don't expect any fuel economy help. Also, the next upgrade is to go with a tune that allows a 50/50 mix of gas and E85.

Now you are getting into real power increases. If you liked the difference...

Wipers make noise

My normal advice is to start with getting the glass properly cleaned. Get waxes for car washes and such off the glass.

Battery Replacement in BMW E60 5 series DIY

Never lost any settings that I have noticed other than the clock. Resetting ECU or transmission settings occasionally is generally a good thing.
