There is a service function for it in ISTA. If you plan on doing more work on the car yourself, get an ENET cable from eBay (nothing fancy about it, should be about $20) and download ISTA-D (full...

I would say they're comparable just with a little less initial bite than OEM, but this does depend on your reference point as OEM pads have changed over the years.

I think it was about 10 years...

Actually, I prefer to see vehicles before they're detailed. It gives me a better idea about how well (or poorly) the previous owner took care of the car. Much harder to notice some of these things if...

The wheels were boxed up so it was a normal UPS delivery, anywhere in the continental US is probably fine. Here's the link to shop I bought my last set of wheels from:

All-seasons are about as bad as summer tires if there is any snow or ice on the road though, especially if they are even the slightest bit worn (like less than 8/32"). But yes, storing and swapping...

I'm not a fan of all-seasons. They tend to be fine initially, but after they start to wear, you either get really bad wet traction (Bridgestone) or road noise (Pirelli), or both (Goodyear).

Did you set the parking brake? Always make sure it's set before taking your foot off the brake. I almost never touch the park button, you can just apply the parking brake and turn off the car, which...

I think they are overdoing the exhaust on the M Performance models (probably because of the intended market so I can't really blame them), but at least you can reduce it significantly by setting the...

Went to the M Town Tour today and drove the M340i, X3M Competition, M850i, M5, and M2 Competition. I'm starting to feel like twin-turbo V8's have too much power to really get to enjoy the car on a...

Yes, the parking brake needs to be fully retracted so the thicker pads will fit. Manually unscrewing it may cause problems during reassembly.

I've found that the Pirelli P Zero RFTs are the "least bad" summer performance RFTs available. They don't last very long, which is typical for a summer performance tire, but I'm going to try the new...

What are the offsets on the wheels? This is probably another issue, as both wheels are wider and seem to stick out more than OEM. When they rub on the fender or fender liner, that could cause the...

The front wheels are 4% smaller than the rear, which is probably the issue as Herb mentioned. If the tire shop recommended these sizes to you, then they should take the tires back and replace them...

Did you have to modify the exhaust tips and is that why they are a bit crooked? Painting the diffuser body color does seem to hide the tips though, as the car is silver, but it's nice and subtle.

If it's doing that, then at least the motor is working. Try manually adjusting the mirror up/down to see if the control buttons are working. Check if the driver's side works too.

Did it work before and can the mirror still fold in? If your car is 2013-2015, does the turn signal on it light up? Check this first to rule out a connection problem.

If you don't live in a good area, any newer model car, especially one from a luxury brand, will get you unwanted attention regardless if it's a 340i, 535i, or 740Li. At the end of the day, if someone...
