Transmission cooler o-rings was my culprit and they are routinely overlooked.

By at least 2 extra as the flanges are easy to screw up and even though I don't "know" if it will affect anything with a new set after seeing the old ones I wasn't playing with it again.

New SACHS shock absorbers in all 4 corners (front left had completely failed) and 2 new front strut mounts (as the metal sleeve/rubber disc in the originals had busted out).
She rides tight like a new e53 from Factory. Perfect.

Oh and got firmware for my BlueBus updated so it's 100% working on a MID with BC button. Sensational.

New rear air shocks today. It was almost as easy as an oil change.

Air springs you mean? They are very easy to do, but shock absorbers also easy

How is the rear badge attached? Is it similar to the front - just with a couple of rubber grommets?

It has two little tabs that go inside of holes I would assume for alignment purposes, but it mainly bonds using double sided tape.

And the easiest way to remove one is to park in a bad part of town...
