Congrats. I'm almost in the same boat as you coming from an E60 M5 and have been looking at the 35d and 50i. By any chance was this car on autotrader as it looks familiar.

I'd spray soapy water over the bags to help identify any leaks if you want to check yourself.

And this is why I'm considering a 35d now. Love the power of the 50i but it seems the N63 longevity is questionable in comparison.

I was actually surprised at how quick the 8 speed shifted while in sport mode. Nothing earth-shattering but still so much quicker than other cars I've driven.

If your sensor hasn't been worn, there really is no need to replace it. You only need to replace it once its worn through at which point the idrive will let you know brakes need replacing.
