Any ideas on how long I can drive with the occasional rattle? Mine comes up a couple times a day or less. Is it safe to drive another 2-3 months to wait out the Winter/Spring?

I also wonder what...

SOOO Thankful. Oh my... Some guy said you needed special tools, but i guess he was proven wrong. Benefits of an older thread with all the BS cleared up.

Great find!!

Just wondering, can anyone with a newer 535 try? Make sure you step on it to push the button under the gas pedal.

Oh, that's safe for sure. I am talking about no manual wash and no light pressure. Full blast all over the bay, like the many videos out there say is OK. So... i take it... not so much? Too much risk?

High pressure engine bay wash OK?

I know there are a million sources about that, but nothing specifically for our cars/engines.

Do you do it? Do you avoid spraying certain areas? Do you keep the engine running? Or just stay away?...

This thread has been hijaacked i guess, but what exactly do they do in this "service"? Like drain the fluid and replace the filter and pan? So bulk of the cost is for what? The $60/litre ATF from BMW?

I only replaced my front rotors because they were warped / pulsating. See my DIY here on the forum. Otherwise, yes, rotors can last a very long time.
