You don't even need pliers if you have long-ish fingers, just reach in there and install it. Takes under 5 minutes.

No permanent issues here, with an iPhone 6. For a while, car permanently thought it was on a call (for 2 days straight), but a hard reset of the phone fixed that. No issues since.

So you'll need front pads, rotors, and a sensor. ~$25 for sensor, $350 for the two rotors, and ~$120 for pads.

Not sure what point you're trying to make here. It was the mats, they found no issues with the vehicles. Just because US media went nuts (as usual) doesn't make the problem real.

I have never, after owning 5, had one not start. I'm confused why you're still driving a BMW if all the ones you owned were/are so unreliable. Why own a car that could randomly not start?

Pretty sure its a myth. I first changed the fluid on my E46 at over 200K miles - became very smooth, and no slippage when I sold it 250k miles.
