Most likely it is the pre-tensioners, should be easily verifiable in the car's current state.

The mechanic suggested that you take out unknown DEF and install DEF that has a direct and verifiable supply chain? That's reasonable in many situations.

I'd go ahead and start with a different car. Factor in what the other retrofits interest you and buy a car that has them already installed. In the US, a 16 328i with halogens means it does not have...

Scotty is a real character. I like how he specifies that he bends back his own rims on his 94 celica. Sounds like a real peach.

Sounds like something could be tripping the stress/load sensor whether it's a sticky/freezing seal or something else. Hinges even?

Not surprising on an n54 turbo. What's the average mileage on one of those cars, 120k? I believe the primary failure on this component is the Wastegate, so not related to a no-oil-pressure wind down.

Quite a few people considering this. IIRC there were a few rolling updates to the pump. 100k service life on that seems OK, better than some of the alternatives of failure. What matters is whether...

I would be suspect of the lower tailgate latch/release. Power struts do not lift the door from closed, it lifts the door from ajar.

I've read that a high concentration of gasoline or water can sieze the cp4 instead of the more gradual metal flaking from lesser contamination.
