Which brake pads besides OEM are good? I've had bad experiences on other cars with non OEM pads, but I've blown to much dough on the X and need a good brake pad cheap!

Door Panel Air Bag panel seperation

The vinyl covering the side air bags panels are falling off. The foam has disintegrated. Can this be reupholstered?

It seems like on BMWs the door panels are a maintenance item. LOL

Unless the gasket is leaking, I may use drain and fill and leave the filter alone. Quite often that "filter" is a metal screen. They don't get clogged up, just catch the large particles.
