Yes, I know that scratch-X is a polishing compound. After a decade of it producing mirror-finish results, I'm not going to stop. You Must start with a clean surface and a clean towel though or all...

I haven't seen any. I've used it on my E53, E70, and E71 across 11y. The first time I tried it on my E53, the trim was looking pretty nasty so I figured I didn't have much to lose. Luckily it...

Not myself, but I saw a woman with an E71 w/20s on Judge Judy who had all 4 wheels messed up by a car wash. She won.

There was the usual "it was like that already" argument, but JJ was like,...

Compared to my E70, my E71 was like the surface of the sun (Texas). I had that clear film installed on my E71 windshield and it wasn't so bad anymore. I haven't done my F16 yet. I'll probably be a...

The frugal side of me, which hardly ever shows itself, doesn't want to get rid of the plate. Really: I haven't thought of anything good for a new one.

I agree. Also, when I bought my '11 35d and my '12 35i, there was no MSport package available, so you were stuck with the round tailpipes. I mod'd my '12 to have the square ones. Best mod I ever...

I'd consider it. I average about 12 miles per day in slow motion. When I had an X5 35d, I only got 19mpg. I traded it in for a 35i after only 1y because the painola of a diesel wasn't worth it for...
