Let me know how to do so and I will join in this effort. Thanks.

P.S. I test drove a 545i today that was for sale locally and it did NOT have the surge issue that my car does.

WTB: E60 comfort headrests

I have a 2005 545i.

I'd like to swap out the sport headrests for comfort headrests.

Must be in excellent shape and black leather.

Thanks.

Important question...

For the cars that surge, when you put it in sport mode (steptronic) does it still surge?

Mind doesn't.
