Yeah, I knew that stuff sounded a little too good to be true. The leak's not too bad yet, I'll just let it be until I get to it in a few weeks. Thanks for the tips. Much appreciated!

Storage tips

I'm deploying soon so I'll have to put my 645 in storage for around six months. Any tips for storing it properly so that I don't come back to a bunch of problems?

Good news, Idrive just gave the engine malfunction warning and it finally gave me a code, P0305. Cylinder 5 misfire. That seems like a simple enough fix.

I think this happens to most e64s. I fixed it with a little bit of gorilla glue. It wasn't messy at all and you can't even tell it's been glued.

Stuttering Acceleration

My 645ci has recently started to stutter a lot whenever I accelerate, it doesn't matter which gear I'm in. The weird thing is, it doesn't stutter in DS or sport mode. What could it be? Spark plugs or...

Also, sometimes when I first step...
