Thanks, just fixed mine today =)

I was trying to look at the fuse #76 first during lunch break. But there is no way to pull out the under glove box black cover - I can't see any fuse with this cover on. I went ahead and removed...

Thanks for your help, guys

I only have one key (with built-in remote) when I bought the car. I will try graphite powder if it can help.

I watched the guy changing my tranny fluid. I remember he didn't pry off the pan. ...

It was working fine yesterday. The switch (I have a manual climate control) seems to be working (letting the out side air in and turning on AC OK, but no air blowing out).

My question is I have a...

I have never seen people did it this way on the Auto tranny. I know that I need to fill ~6qt. if I drain and change the filter on my tranny. Definitely, pouring it in using gravity should be easier...

Will this work on Automatic Tranny?

Can we use this funnel trick to fill the Steptronic ATF? I try to avoid having to claw under the running car hand-pumping little fluid at a time out from each ATF quart bottle.

What do you guys...

Yeah, I know what you mean. I test drove the 3. And it just doesn't cut it. I was coming from the V8 E34. The 3 doesn't have refinements the 5 has. That is why I ended up with the 525i. I'm...

Thank you!

Oh! this is a totally new piece of information for me. I would have gone the cheap route, if I knew this earlier. Anyway, $50 more for piece of mind is not too bad. Will have to do a 2nd drain /...
