Ended up taking mine to an indy because the local dealer wanted $149 for oil change and wanted me to wait in the "lounge." The indy did it for $79 including a loaner. (Nice little volvo S60) I gave...

It's supposed to glow in the dark. I know if I were trapped and saw something glowing and dangling, I'd pull on it too. :P

Best place to start is your BMV or DMV. They should be able to tell you about taxes, titles, etc. or at least point you in the right direction. Most states give you a 30 day temp tag, so you should...

I second the use of RainX washer fluid. -30 rating and de-icing built in. I also use a low fan defrost to help keep build-up down when we get heavy snow here in OH.

that's the problem. I got the anchor off, the lining is off, but I can't seem to get that shroud off. It's as if it's connected somewhere else that's not obvious. I guess I'll just use more force...

Haven't read or heard much on any AT's failing on any BMW, new or old. My educated guess would say they're good to 200K. I have an '07 530xi and definitely don't have plans to keep it that long. ...
