Installation and programming should be 1 hour. I had quotes for 1.5 and even 2 hours but once they knew I had done my homework, they agreed to do 1 hour.

Yeah, I need to change my sig. 330i is gone and replaced with an 04 530i. I'll check the bulbs. I can't imagine that it should be blinking. Solid maybe, but not blinking.

Will a 2004 qualify for CPO today?

I'm looking at a 2004 540i with about 45k miles. The dealership tells me it is too old to be a CPO. Is that the case? It's a 1 owner vehicle. Thanks!

2004 530i - Any reason not to buy?

Aside from being out of warranty (no CPO available), is there any reason I shouldn't buy a 2004 530i, 1 owner with 46k miles? Any first model year issues or anything else?
