The E60 doesn't weight much more than the E90, at least not nearly as much as you think going by the size differential. The biggest difference will come with engine choice, you can have an E90 that...

I agree, the warranty is certainly not worth that. That's coming from someone who bought a warranty that should soon expire, for which I got absolutely nothing out of so far. Okay, I need my wiper...

Thanks, your method makes a little more sense to me now that I'm clear that it is a different car. When I was attempting the back bleed, I was trying to push through nearly a foot of 3/8" tubing...

I think I may have fixed it!

It's possible that I unnecessarily flushed through so much more than necessary, I cannot be sure though. I wasn't really paying attention to when I was testing,...
