So I'm entering my second week of f10 550i 6-speed manual ownership. Having had (and still selling) an e60 535i manual and, prior to that, an e39 528i 5-speed manual, this new one seems to have some...

I had the N54 in my e60 and I guess what I have now is the N63? I see some posts over at the f10 forum about recalls, etc on it. I bought an extended warranty, beyond the CPO, as precaution.

Reitmeier's Werkstadt in Los Altos has always served me well, honest, don't know how the prices stack up against others, though.

I used to take my e39 to reitmeier's Werkstadt in Los Altos and was very happy with them. As soon as my CPO expires on my current e60 in October I will definitely be going back there.
