2007 X3, need new battery

Is there a way to replace the battery without losing any radio settings and having to reintialize the sunroof? I understand from the dealer that the computer data won't be lost.

330i brakes

I measured the rotors and they are at 20.73 mm. The minimum for replacement of new pads is supposedly 20.4 mm.

330i brakes

I will be replacing the rear pads on my 2001 330i. Is it true that if you use new OE pads and don't replace the rotors that the pads will wear quicker?

Front Lower Control Arms

zQEUz: You said you had to replace the bushings again after 25k. Were these Meyle's that you had to replace?

Lower Control Arm

Can you take a good lower control arm bushing off an old control arm and put it on a new lower control arm, if you lubricate it first?

Front Lower Control Arms
