Great post, you almost had me on the edge of my seat. What's a DISA valve and do I have one on my N54?

Thank you for sharing your experience. I had a 530xi prior to my 535, it was a terrific car.

My car came with run flat Dunlops, a miserable tire for the Northeast. It's been over 18 months with the Michelins and they make a huge difference. Quiet, smooth and nice response over rough roads.

Congrats. You guys are lucky in the UK- E60 diesel must rock. What's your fuel mileage? We are very slow to adopt diesels in the states, but they are catching on.
