While I agree BMW hold up very well, I have to disagree that Toyota's rust and do not hold up. My 2005 Scion Tc was 8 years old when I got rid of it and it looked and ran like new. I never had...

DUMP IT. I know people love there BMW's here, but Dump it. It's not worth the headache and it's not worth dumping money into. I never understood people on BMW boards. It's only a car.

Glad your ok, and really sorry about the bear. Car can be replaced. Were you speeding?

Don't know what the speed limit is on I94. I've know insurance claims to be denied because of speeding.

N62 cylinder 8 coil

I just replaced coil number 8 and it is a easy job. So anyone who has fears of doing it, don't.

Just remove the positive cable holder and you can slide the coil out up and forward. 30 minute job.

Why Russia, Do the Deer fall into cars there? Yes she ran into my car, I was doing about 25. I guess the headlight blinded her or else I think I could have avoided the impact.

I was only doing around 25 and was able to brake before impact. That is why the damage is less. I've also seen deer hits that have totaled a car.
