They ended replacing 4 injectors in bank two. Car runs very smooth. Hopefully I won't need the other 4 injectors changed. ...and if I do, it happens before my warranty expires.

Granted there have been issues, but my next car will more likely be a BMW or even Lexus / Toyota before I get a Cadillac. I'm just not comfortable with the brand

Busted Speaker.. Warranty?

Hey guys,
I think I blew out the front passenger side tweeter. I sounds terrible when played at greater than 75%. It also sounds terrible when on phone calls.

Has anyone else had speaker issues?...

To the OP, a 5 series with 19" wheels can easily be a family vehicle. The only thing you have to do is ditch the run flat tires, and probably use tires with a size up in sidewall (ie use 245/45/r19 -...

No need to run away from 19" wheels. Just buy tires with a larger sidewall. Stock size is 245/40/19. I ditched my run flats and put on Michelin pilot AS plus sized 245/45/19 - NO BUBBLES in one year...

Getting rid of those tires is the best thing you could've done. I have the 245/45/19 Michelin Pilot A/S Plus and I love them. I've hit monster NYC pot holes and came out unscathed.
