This is a problem that just developed for me (73k mi), I don't know how this guy did it so fast. I have a 335 and the oil cooler so I'm sure it will take me some more time but the leak seems small at...

Yeah that's what I've heard. BMW remanufactures/rebuilds them but specialized tools don't allow your indy shop to do so.

Doesn't seem like a bad deal to me but it's just IMO

I think it has to do with the meta tags. If the tags aren't updated to reflect the track number, it probably defaults to alphabetical sorting. Did you buy the music through iTunes?
