Thank you for the thoughtful feedback. I think you nailed my description, as I don't want to slam this thing. Think of it this way; I am going for a 330xi's' model (if one was made).

I have a 2005 330xi with 107K mi and would like to work with the suspension a bit. I feel that it rides too high for my liking and just needs about 1"-1.5" drop. I also would like to enhance the...

Understood, but are you talking about a rear wheel drive version or the xi? The xi has numerous front axel elements that block access. I can get an arm to touch the nut, but the arm cannot move, as...

Yes on both counts. My preferred way is streaming it from the phone, either wired or Bluetooth. All steering controls work that way. Doing as an android app works too, but you don't have steering...

2005 330xi ATF Fluid/filter Change Issue

2005 330xi ATF Fluid/filter Change Issue

That set looks like a good idea. One thing for others to be aware though. Those are screwdriver or drill bits, so they tend not to be long, and have a hex body shape. Great for this application....

Possible Oil Leak

Thanks! I'll take a look at that driveshaft seal. I thought it could be residual oil from the vcg/ofhg replacement, but I had cleaned the area previously. However, the scent of burning oil is gone...

You can see the bolt on the side above the drain plug. (Drain plug is not leaking, btw. It is just penetrant spray.)

I was doing my first ATF fluid and filter change on my 330xi at 106,000. (I bought it at 104,000, so I am going through all the fluid changes.) I know the xi had the GM tranny, but when I looked for...
