My wife's SUV...different story.

I need to find somebody for waxing (clay, polish, seal, etc.) my car.
Try this guy: Torrell Brown. 615-775-0974. I havent used him yet - just got my car but I'll try him. He was recommended to me by some friends with Mercedes who are very particular about their cars. He comes to you and does clay bar, leather conditioning etc.

Hello boys...

Apparently there aren't too many females hanging around the forum, but I'm totally appreciating all the info I find here. So, I bought my car a few weeks ago (went all the way to TX to get it) and took it to BMW today for an engine service and oil change. I also told them it was pulling to the right and needed an alignment. They told me that I just need new tires (I'm at 15k miles), but I don't think I will replace the runflats. They're expensive, and from what I read, are horrible anyway. All I really do is drive to/from work up and down 65, so if I get a flat BMW Assist will be there quickly anyway. Any recommendations on tires? I'm don't have to have THE highest performance tire...although I did buy the car in part for the speed and handling. Any recommendations on shops that have the ability to remove the runflats without screwing up my wheels?

nah i havent..i moved the x5 from one spot to another but didnt take it out on the road...but ive driven a few of the 7's with the same powerplant...and they are deceptively quick for their size...as far as the rest of the x5x6M's go im not super impressed. the interior is basically the same and they get some bumpers...so idk no huge deal. regardless, pretty cool trucks i suppose haha

Steering column was replaced. Everything is good
now, but my front windows only go up 2 inches each
time I press the up/down button. So it takes like 10 times to get it to fully
open or close
