Scotty Kilmer has a very narrow base of knowledge and lets his bias run his channel, ignore that guy. As far as the M550i goes, it's about as likely as anything else in that class to have problems at...

The pads might have wear sensors, but that's just a plug. The part number for the pads will be comparable between the 520d and 530i at dealer parts sites, I would expect them to be the same.

I would suggest getting the shop manual and seeing what the steering wheel removal procedure is. From there, look to see if any of the connectors for the steering wheel have varying part numbers...

I have had some dealers print me off diagrams when I have bought a couple parts and asked very, very nicely. Never underestimate the power of a good relationship with a service advisor. For the dash...

Technically, they can ding you for it, but I doubt it, that's pretty common damage on a car.

No, the car is worth too much to total it, they'll fix it. There is a low probability of extra cost on this one, at least worth mentioning. It's not a car accident with the expectation of unseen...

Wiring harnesses are a giant pain to access, so I could see it being that. Brake wiring tends to be spread between each wheel and to various modules, so to replace that harness I would bet is the...

My first question would be if they used the right weight of oil the last oil change. Even at the dealer, mistakes happen. The first start of the morning, a lot of the oil has to be pumped back up...

I'm betting it's 18 miles under ideal conditions and the newly reported range is entirely a prediction based off of driving habits. Range is affected by accessories, temperature, and the kind of...

Mercedes started it in 1999 on the S-class. It's standard on a 2010 Toyota Prius. Germans like making everything an option in most of their cars. Push button start was an option on the C-class until...

I think Mythbusters handled this one, the results were that windows down were more efficient at in town speeds, but once you hit the open road, the AC was more efficient. And this was quite a while...

I have the 530i with the M-package and the number of M-badges is a little much. I count 9 of them, plus the one in the gauges in sport mode. At least the one's visible to passerby are subtle and hard...

Thank you for that, that's very helpful! If I do get that, I will update my review accordingly. It sounds like it would address my complaint. It does make sense that they would build this car with a...

I would say that the throttle response is more sensitive under certain circumstance, particularly when the car is cold. I ended up turning off the warm up timer, I think it confused the car. I have...
