E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Old IMac? I had this problem too. Any chance you have virtualPC or a Citrix network at work that you can run IE from?

TIS is a Win 95 era program. That is probably your issue. You may want to buy one already setup on virtual machine.

This is lower control arm, the upper control arm is called tension strut, I think. If you could give me that in PDF that would be great,
Thanks

thanks a lot, is this it, just one page?
It looks so easy. Dealer want $600 for that.
Is alignment necessary after installation?

I would say that anytime you remove & replace suspension parts, an alignment is always recommended. I would watch the tire wear very close, if you do not do an alignment.

Good Luck!
