I will take it to BMW to get the codes. Last time Autozone checked it, it said something like lean in bank 2.

You think it is a misfire?

Everytime when I floor it on the highway, my check engine light comes on. It either goes away after a few start cycles or if I wiggle the air intake boot.

Is a sway bar upgrade the best bang for buck upgrade to suspension?

Here is a pic of my differential. Please tell me where the leak is coming from

I don't think the leak is from the side seals, I think it's coming from the front. Does that mean the repair is any easier? Any cheaper? What is your overall diagnosis from this pic?

Thanks
