Just curious. When he preloaded the wheels, did he do both at the same time or one at a time?

When I did mine, I started with preloading one side only, and was amazed at how much I twisted the...

What's your mileage?

In my car it was a feeling of floating steering, but the slight shaking at that speed has been mentioned by others.

When I pulled mine off at 65K, unlike others here the...

I'd add the word "BMW" repair guy. I'd never call the gas station guy, or the ford mechanic, an indy on this site. The preesumtion is that BMW is a big part of his business, if not all of it, and...

My droid connects via bluetooth, so phone and address book get integrated. No integrated music, though -- I plug the headphone jack into the aux port in the back seat for that.

You can see the opinions above. If you want to keep the car for another 50K, get Lems. I don't know if the complaints about Meylie are related to not doing a suspension preload on install, but we...

Both good cars. N62 engine has much better power etc, of course. N52 is generally rock stable (except for the waterpump).

The 530 is likely to be more trouble free, all things considered. The...

1. Yes, but the tow to the shop may not be. AAA or similar is always cheap tow insurance..
2. Many do replace it at 60-70K, since it's a tow when it fails.
3. The usual is a Pierburg unit,...

Can't hurt. Get a couple of good tanks of gas through it and see if the roughness smooths out a bit. Then work on the delay.

How many miles on it? Did you get maintenance records?

Agreed. What the PS label says is what you use. You could be right on the M54. I recall my E39 used ATF, and so did my E46; and both used the M54 engine if I recall. I think the M54 was used in...

Unfortunately have to correct your point. My 07 530 has neither active steering or suspension. It uses CHF11. I don't believe any E60's use ATF. Perhaps your referenced 528 is prior to E60? ...

Aquarius, For clarity, it's also used in the regular power steering system. Check the PS reservoir level.

If that's down, you have a leak in the PS loop.

Possible its a coincidence, but some...

Suggest a good start is to look at Bavarian Auto's alternatives in rotors, pad and so forth.

DIY. 3 hours, Pierburg pump, thermostat, $450 or so.

A fair Indy price would be about $900, IMHO. They want to charge list for the parts. So, negotiate.
