Possible problem is that I haven't placed the order yet, so I don't have a production number yet.

//M4 ED Pickup in early July?

Hm, so I've been planning my trip to Munich to pick up an //M4 around the 3rd or 4th of July. Will the //M4 even be available for delivery then, and if so is it MY2016 or MY2017?

Meh. Not a fan. Looks like a test mule with lipstick. Those bolted on fenders would look better on a Dodge Ram pickup. : puke:

Clean your MAF

Make sure to clean the Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF), as well. The sensor wire can get mildly gunked up over time, which affects the signal it sends to the ECM, and thus can confuse the computer's...

If it's leaking, yes

Should be easy to inspect yourself. Get a flashlight and look in the wheel wells and see if you can spot anything on either of the front struts.

At 142,000 miles, you're probably overdue for new...

That's precisely what I was looking to hear. My E60 has that slightly nasty, raw edge to it that reminds you that it's a driver's car first, but can clean up nicely and behave if it *has* to. BMW...

Old-school maintenance practice is to change them at 50,000 - 60,000 miles. I changed mine at 55,000 and got a noticeable improvement. I'm at 105,000 now, and am planning to change them again next...

I just changed the spark plugs on my 2011 F10 535i this weekend. It's pretty easy, but to reach the back two cylinders you have to do some disassembly. A few pointers:

My 2008 550i ZSP just ticked over 100,000 miles. She's now 7 years old. As I've been saying on various posts for the last several years, this car has been - and continues to be - 100% trouble free....
