Yep, Cosmoline left over from shipping. You need hot, hot water (130+ F) to soften it up for removal.

Those are Style 193M Star Spoke wheels, the original-equipment wheel for the M Sport package on the E90 335i. :thumbup: Perhaps original to the car, or does it not have the other M Sport bits?

On the E90 at least, the right-side strut passes directly over cylinder #5 of an N55--no clearance for extensions and whatnot.

Order replacement bolts, too--they are torque-to-yield (i.e., single-use). You'll also need a torque-angle gauge (or a digital torque wrench with torque-angle capability) to install the new bolts...

No, unless you are paying close attention and deliberately trying to catch the engine off-guard. Under WOT, these engines produce full rated torque from just off idle (~1,300rpm IIRC).

Now,...

1. A dealer/shop that performs an oil change does not set the intervals to the next change in CBS. What they do is reset the CBS oil service scope to 100% of service life. The actual service life...

I was not suggesting otherwise - reread my post. The fob battery is irrelevant if you lock/unlock the car via the central-locking button.

It was something new and actually is intended to work that way. :) You do not "have to" push the button a second time--all accessories power down when you lock the car from outside.
