You can't do it on your 2010 535i since there's no "Software Update" option in Settings menu in iDrive. That option is only available in certain 2010 models and the E60 doesn't appear to be one of...

Most of the members on this forum are from the States and since the 520d was never sold here, you probably won't get a lot of responses. I was unaware of any E60 timing chain issues so I googled it...

Yes, very surprising. I figured I'd have a bent or cracked rim or two at a minimum. I think the fact that I hit the curb at an angle at a relatively low speed and I have Conti DWS tires with...

The edge of each headrest can be manually folded inwards quite a bit to cradle / wrap around the driver's / passenger's head. Is that what you're taking about? If so, there's nothing wrong with...

Your thermostat may be stuck open if you're car is only around 150F at idle. I believe the thermostat is designed to open around 185F and normal operating temperature for the engine is around 200F.
