Most parts have a manufacturing date somewhere on the part. Not sure if the pump has this or if the info is coded into the 2D barcode on the unit.

I drove my friends 2014 S5 convertible with the B&O sound system, wasn't impressed. Maybe I need more time with the setup. I tried going through the menus to find an EQ, but couldn't find one.

I've wondered about the M3 DCT too, but the part numbers at RealOEM are different between the M and 335is. What's odd is that the model of the transmission is the same, GS7D36SG.

Yes, the 35i is pretty noisy during cold starts. Almost sounds like a high pitched rattle that goes away after about a minute.

Yeah, not too bad. A replacement driver's airbag is only $106, and that's for the sport steering wheel. Spending the cash beats waiting on BMW dealers to have the "parts in stock."

Nothing will go wrong, it's not rocket science. Make sure to clean the surface with IPA and let the surface dry before painting. Use SEM trim black paint, trust me.
