Agreed on the Sonax products, but I also love Einszett Glanz Wax.

Check out detailersdomain.com for your purchase - I think Phil even throws BF members a little discount.

Mine does this as well, but what keeps me calm about it is my previous 5-series did the same thing, and the 5'er before that.

At least with the X5 3.5 M-Sport, we get rectangular exhausts.

With the 5-series, it's only on the 550...not even the 535 M-Sport.

I'm pretty confident surround view is part of DA+. So you're covered there.

A feature so stupid simple...or maybe it exists?

Why can't BMW use the bumper sensors (or some kind of sensor!) to measure if the liftgate will smack into an object when opening?

I back into my garage. I'll never open the liftgate without doing...

If you're leasing, well then it's BMW's problem. :)
