I did the same, 3M adhesive spray made for interior automotive fabric like this. Mine looks perfect. You need to remove the cover to do it and read the instructions and do it right. It won't look...

I just use the bavauto scanner/reset tool. To get specific BMW codes for your car I believe it's only under the hood. I think mine is that way. The OBDC II hookup under my dash is only for generic...

Hope she has enough insurance to cover the damage to all those vehicles. If she doesn't someone will have to go after her in court. If she even has the money.

Manhandled may not be the right word to use. I've turned my steering with the car off before, it's difficult because the power steering isn't working at that point, but not manhandling. I don't see...

Mine stays that clean on the alloy parts. It's the darker black parts under my hood that look dirty usually. Except for when my VCG was leaking. Doesn't look abnormally clean to me :-)

Getting all black grills will look sportier. When it's chrome or matches the car's color the grill looks much smaller and a lot less agressive.
Don't replace just one, in some cases you can only buy...

Is it an automatic? Did you check the power steering fluid? (The cap usually says ATF even though it's for power steering, because it's ATF fluid).
My fluid was a little low a while back and I had a...

I looked under http://realoem.com/bmw/partgrp.do?model=BM53&mospid=47712&hg=11&fg=18
but that is for my 2000 328ci. You looked under "Engine" => "Belt Drive"?

Also if you have spilt any coolant under the hood that you didn't realize before - it will steam away for a short time.

To be more direct to the problem, sounds like he didn't get any coolant in the block heater. That's usually of course because of bleeding improperly. I would imagine he may have forgot the setting on...

Investing in a Peak code reader would be very beneficial and it will also reset your oil / service indicator a little easier.

I like the turn signals, headlights, and side markers on the facelift, but the kidney grills I dislike enough to prefer the pre facelift look.

That's really bad. I usually get 27.8. If I drive less roughly and use cruise control more often I can just about keep the average at 30. I'm in a 328ci. I also have the A/C on all the time and it's...
