Inspect everything on the front end before you replace anything. If itís that bad I bet you will find the issue without guessing.

Every 15k is horrible for your BMW. 8k makes more sense. I do it every 5k. Best to DIY.

I believe the fluid needs to be at ďoperating temperatureĒ and not cold. Also when you move through the gears, the wheels are not supposed to spin. All this has to be done on a flat surface.

Dirty power steering fluid ruins a lot. BMW stresses clean fluid and protecting existing fluid anytime work is done to the power steering system.

No fault codes? I would scan with a BMW scanner before you replace anything. If you do replace bulbs you have to research them. 6000k is for looks. 4300k great for fog. 5000k good for all.

Yup. If you replaced them they should be ok as long as they all seated correctly and the valve cover is flush all around.

Cosmo makes Mucho Macho all seasons. You could get all four tires for $450. Thatís if you donít want to get Michelins or Continentals.

Itís not just the valve cover gasket that could be the issue. The spark plug tubes get hard and can allow oil to pass down to the plug.

BMW X5 e70 lean upstream/downstream random misfire

I think itís quite ironic that right after I post on this topic I get a p0430 code today. I cleared it. Letís see if it comes back. Maybe Iíll be next on the o2 sensors.

Is it possible that it is still intact and has just dropped down? Maybe a magnet can find it and it could be re-used.
