The difference is that the wiring to low beam has voltage turned down.

I agree with this guy.

Wheels are very hard to get on straight without center rings.

Another way to get centering ring is to put 12mm spacers on fronts.

The x drive models have steel plug. The s28i models like mine have plastic plug. It seems stout enough. I bought a 10mm hex socket for perfect fit. It was tricky using a hex key.

It even had some special intake, and car felt ok, was a little faster, but felt like it was forcing itself.

That Mobil 1 5w30 isn't near as stout as it's 0w40.

Moly additives are in several oils, but I'd be careful about adding more.

Moly can plate out, and take out clearances, so I think the makers already know how much can be used.

No, it's 100k miles. The Odometer that measures distance driven is very accurate on my X1, but speedometer reads 5% too high like all other BMW's.
