The Bosch Icon blades have a funky connector that I don't care for. Costco does not sell a battery for the E60. I've used Akebono Euro ceramic pads with great results.

All of our cars have names. My 2009 528ix is named "Bogey", my wife's 2010 CR-V is "Pugsly", and my sons 1994 525i is "Humphrey."

Notice the word pcy used....changed...not flushed. Flushing a transmission is never a good idea especially on a vehicle with 97K. Just do/have done, everything related to a CHANGE.

Left low beam headlight, left turn signal, and left brake light not working!

I haven't gotten the letter yet and it's been weeks since the recall was publicized. When are they going out?

Dealer left off oil filler cap. Damage??

I agree. 7500 with any LL-01 spec oil is sufficient, and of course an OEM filter or equivalent such as Mann.

Correct. If it is NOT LL-01 you are using the wrong oil. Thanks for the correction.

If the Mobil 1 oil you are using is the the LL-01 spec, you are using the wrong oil.

Car care for a rookie

Don't use the soapy brush! They are usually loaded with dirt, tar, etc. you will put scratches in your paint.

Changing two tires on xDrive?

There is no tire shop in my region that can compete with Costco on Michelin tires. Just wish they had RoadForce balance.
