You're not taking into account that the radiator in an N51 is specific to SULEV and much more expensive - you can't just put in a $200 radiator - it will throw codes for emissions. To original poster, since you're in CA, an SULEV state, you should definitely look into the warranty. I had a faulty fuel pump replaced at no cost to me by BMW this summer as it, like the radiator, is covered by the SULEV warranty.[/QUOTE]

Good point. I forgot about the stupid magical coating that converts water to wine. Maybe there's a hack for it...
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission. "Yeah, but NO ONE puts an automatic trans shift knob on a manual transmission."
