New to posting but have been an avid reader for awhile. I've got an E61 545i, which I love although it's in the garage today having the fated suspension pump replaced, alternator belt replaced, new brake pads and a few other minor things. God bless Warranty Direct. It's my second BMW, my first being an 323i. Just wanted to say this forum is brilliant and full of good advice, and full of things to make you paranoid.
