The x5 owner also tells all his friends not to buy BMW and nobody wins.

If BMW NA split the cost they would still have a costumer to by their products, the dealer would make money on the work and get a new costumer and the owner would feel like he was treated right. WIN, WIN, WIN for everyone. I can dream can't I.

its ridiculous how customer service works huh? i think BMW is in "conserve mode" especially with all those fuel pumps failing in the 35 turbo engines.

OP, sorry i came off a bit harsh-- i truly hope you come up with a solution, because the 4.8is is a true beast, and i wish i could have afforded one!

One more tip: looks like your headlights are beginning to fog up--check the site for posts on using the 3M kit to repair them
