I have no issues removing the dipstick on my 2016 (07/15 production). Was it seized somehow or was it like that from the factory?

I agree although I tend to lean on the side of caution as it pertains to turbos and heat. Both are approved oils for the US 535d so choose whichever makes you feel more comfortable.

You can get 5 Qts of the excellent Pennzoil Euro L 5w30 LL04 approved oil at Walmart for $24. So that would put you at less than $5/qt. So about $35 for oil, $15 for filter and $10 for DEF for a...

Brake fluid replacement kit

You can add a metal valve stem on the top part of the container of the Motive bleeder and use compressed air if you donít want to pump manually. Works like a champ.

I think that is correct for 2014 models. I have yet to see any evidence of that warranty extension for 2015 and 2016 models.

BMW in UK is now replacing all EGR coolers under a new recall

Not sure if it is only for the F10 or others. Wondering if they will do the same in US:
