You have to open the driver's door within 5 seconds of shutting the car off, if I recall. I don't know how to turn off the feature in iDrive, I'm sure there's a way.

Strange, I live in California. I talked to the dealer about registering a car in Michigan and they said they could not do that unless I intended to bring the car there. But they could do it, and no...

Getting a bit vulgar for this kind of a forum, yeah? Don't get me wrong, I was in the Navy for 10 years, I don't blush, but time and place, man.

I'd guess it's your brake system needs maintenance. Fluid gets swapped out to ensure it's free of contaminates. It gets moisture in it over time and that can be hard on components. Check your fluid...

Sorry, Doug, Quack's unnecessarily snide observation has a point. R12 really did perform much better than modern refrigerant, it's missing from the chart you posted. That said, my old Camaro was...

As a side note, unless you drive very hard, I think the M-sport brakes are a take it or leave it option. I drive quite hard on occasion and have never found my base brakes to be deficient. What I...

Thanks for the link, I'll have to look into that. My car is fine now, but my old Audi had noisy seals.

I actually tinted my front windows with the lightest ceramic tint you can get. It cuts a lot of the heat out and the tint is so light, you can't tell it's there. The lightest ceramic tint blocks as...

Yeah, I just got mine back, they recharged the AC and found no faults, I'd guess I'm still going to have my problem. They said the system's hesitancy to turn the fans up until after I've gotten going...

Dealer's don't allow for pieces of it to be replaced and spliced in, nor should they. It's not the right way to do the repair, too easy for there to be problems with the splicing later that is nearly...

Yeah, those are maintenances that are sometimes performed at the same time as the oil, not always!

I have a rwd M Sport 530i and I would definitely not call it floaty. It's certainly comfortable, but you still get a sense of what the road is doing beneath you. The body motions are well controlled...

It's the same car, except the 540 has the 6 cylinder and is a properly quick car. It's a great engine, if you can swing it. Some would prefer a 530 with more options, but know that that model...

I myself prefer non-runflats. And even if you did have a spare, would your wife put it on the car? If not, that means she'd still be stuck calling someone. If the car is not a CPO, the dealer is...

Maybe, maybe not. If it's under warranty, take it to the dealer. Odds are they'll just handle it without charging you, as it wouldn't require any replacement of parts and falls under what they...

Yes I will be. I was debating the pro's and con's, and ultimately, I won't be sure until it's on the car. Being 0.4" narrower than stock on the rear won't visibly make a difference and shouldn't make...

I'm not the seller, Dummy. I myself prefer the WeatherTech, too. And yes, I do honestly think some people care about those things sitting in the trunk.
