  • Use ONLY BMW coolant (the blue stuff) it's pH balanced and has excellent anti-corrosion inhibitors
  • BG44K is much better than most additives. You get what you pay for.
  • I hope the shop did not give you the "iDrive showed no errors" as an excuse for not reading codes. 99% of codes do not cause a message to show.

Fuel filler should be changed every 30K to 60K miles depending on the quality of gas in your area. If you are in a rural area where high octane gas is sold in low volume, it can get contaminated which will clog up your filter faster than normal.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
