My 2011 M3 last had a brake fluid change over a year ago. The brake pedal travels further before any feel of braking. It is definitely a worse feel than when the car was new.

How to adjust front seat head rests?

Is it possible to move the head rests closer to the back of one's head? I looked in the manual and it shows a button on the head rests that does not exist in my coupe.
