Yeah, go figure that the valve cover didn't address your issue. The valve cover has ZERO association with smoke coming from the tailpipe. The VCG could leak all over the engine bay, but this won't be...

No ATF service, why? I hope you're not attached, this is a mistake.

Superficial. You will likely not see a water leak from it. You address it by replacing the whole headlight, it would be a waste of time to attempt to only replace the plastic lense.

Yikes. A transmission FLUSH? I encourage you to present this issue to the dealer who performed the work. Did they even attempt to talk you out of a flush, or is it--in 2020--that manufacturers are...

It's well known that the automatic trans in these vehicles is severely unequipped to handle high power output. Any orange gear light on the dash?

Buy it used or attempt to find it aftermarket. I assume a majority of the $1,500 is the new tank itself.

Don't try to fix the old tank, that's a wasted effort.

Unless the xDrive delete kit includes blockoffs for the transfercase, I don't see how it would eliminate a shaking issue. The axle is spinning if the wheel is moving. The only difference is whether...

A 6 cylinder twin turbo (or twin scroll) vs a 4 cylinder single turbo? Yes, you will be disappointed. Winter handling? You will be impressed.

Drive one at carmax.

2007 335i, gee I just can't imagine why you had constant problems :dunno:

Seems like a tough situation. I use my iPod, makes my life easier, and I certainly can't delete my entire song list in two button clicks.

If you want my two cents, scrap the concept of replacing it with a new engine. Parts and labor for a used engine from a independant mechanic will not even reach half of that price. It might be worth...

$1,700 for both front calipers, pads, and rotors. What a absolute joke. Get another estimate and don't return to that mechanic. Have both front pads/rotors replaced, and the sticky caliper. When the...

Before you go replacing it again, you did reset the code after replacement, correct?

You wouldn't want to pair two different left/right tires, but using a different tread pattern in the front vs the rear is not a big deal. Go with the RS3-G1 in the front, and keep your rears until...

Probably the front bumper. If you feel under the bottom lip, you will feel the scrapes. That is usually the only place that scrapes on a car.
