Yea my ML is like driving a Caddy....I gave it to the wife. I wonder if the 2012 is any better. I know what you mean, even my current suspension feels stiff in comparison.

I've been very pleased with their quality of service. The guy who installed my shocks/springs was very familiar with the BMW setup and offered me some tips on future upgrades. Point is, this wasn't his first install. I went back a few weeks ago to get my rear spacers installed...gave the guy a $20 since he did it for free. These guys obviously take their work seriously, and their prices are still very competitive. There's really no reason NOT to go there.

I get to clean out my VANOS seloniods this weekend My car is shaking like crazy on cold start-ups. It's not throwing codes, which leads me to beleive my coil/plugs/injectors are fine and not misfiring. Hope this works.

Good call.

It's nice to be able to reach out to other valley BMW Enthusiast

I hate this car....sorry just need to vent. So I fill up the other day at a Shell and since then, the engine is shaking like crazy on "cold" starts. Feels like a misfire but wants to stall. So I take the car in to have the intake valves cleaned off, they were very gunked. Now the dealer calls me and they believe either a shell went into my cylinder or there is something else wrong. It's making a very audible tick/knock sound....you can easily hear it over the fuel injector ticking. They are going to swap injectors to rule that out. I'm still thinking I filled up with bad gas because it's very ironic the problems started the day I filled up. I hope this doesn't cost a small fortune and really hope that BMW will take care of me like they always have.

I nearly went over to Jeep and bought a Cherokee, however, I'm reading they have issues of their own. I'm too afraid to go American. I been trying to convince my wife on a TRD Tundra crew cab I'll put that to use when towing my future track car. Anyone have a recommendation on a SUV/Truck under 45k? I need to go 180 or I'll be missing this car too much.

I want to, my wife wants to. It's like a heroine addiction, you wanna quit but just can't. Out of warranty and cost of future issues scares the hell out of me. Tranny, water pump, god knows what else....more fuel pumps and injectors.

I hear ya! After my fiasco, I just have my fmic installed. Haven't reinstalled tune, dci or downpipes yet. Not as powerful but I'm enjoying the reliability! I'm telling you, I really think v5 at stage 0 map 2 is good enough for me. 91 octane here I come! Lol

Will, let's just track a NA Subaru BRZ. Lightweight trumps power on corners.

As far as the N54, is most everything interchangeable with E92?

i will be interested in purchasing, but i must keep my stock parts.

so what was the outcome? was it just the injector?
