I second this opinion. There are no instructions for changing out the oil cooler gaskets, for example, but torque values for most common repair jobs are available right in the book.

It could be one of any of the 20+ computers ("modules") in your car. You should have the car scanned by an independent BMW technician and get the codes pulled.

If the power steering cap has CHF11S written on it then that is the only fluid that you should use, regardless of whether or not the car has the active steering option.

I'm pretty sure that it is not paint. Try a heat gun or blow dryer to melt the adhesive and then carefully peel back the overlay.

The part for the 6-cylinder is about $50. The rest is labor. You have to drop the subframe in order to change the gasket. I'd definitely get a quote from an independent with a lower hourly rate.
