You need to pull codes with a BMW code reader. Creative C310 is good. It's impossible to diagnose with the information you provided. Best of luck.

Rear takes more.

Front doesn't have a drain plug, only fill. You have to suck it out.

If you don't like the price, PM the owner, but please don't crap in the thread. I expect when you sell your e39, you'd prefer others keep their negative comments to themselves. If it isn't priced...

Good to hear. You need it! From what I hear, the humidity is what causes the charge material to clump, and then act like a shotgun blast. Good luck!

Make sure the airbag has been addressed via the recall, if needed. My M5 required that.

I believe the exact wording had to do with a PSA regrading not feeding the trolls.

I reported it myself.

Who knows what most of your posts originally say, since they all appear to be edited.

I'm arrogant? lol

Rude? Not terribly, just not afraid to raise the BS flag when called for, which seems to be necessary as of late.

There isn't much difference between 08/09, but regardless, you're buying an almost 10 years old BMW. Maintenance and repair work is more important than mileage. These can be very reliable vehicles,...

Ok.

So, explain why it goes from smooth as butter to vibrating based strictly upon tire pressure?

How bad is it leaking? If it's just a seep, I'd ignore it. Old engines leak oil. If it's enough to create a mess, then I'd probably bite the bullet as well.
