What's in a name?

Over the years I've named my cars with great care. I know this is something a car crazy person does, so it figures. My 2002 M3 was named Max for obvious reasons. My 2011 550xi m-sport is called Otto,...

Just curious, why would you say that about the all-season option? I have them on my 550i with m-sport. Are they unsafe, or is it a performance thing?

You gotta love these cars. A few of these have happened to me where the warning/error will appear and it's gone the next morning when I start it up.

Wow, 1500 for the left headlight. Other than labor, that's the most expensive part. Glad you were safe.

Yes. Had to replace my entire unit as well (2700 parts and labor). Mine had 75K at the time. If you don't trust the dealer, then get a second opinion.
