Lol alright! But I donít mean that as if the oil is no good, but in terms of minimizing wear on the initial start up after 5 months. A fresh oil change would at least splash some oil up top.

Re: Removing stain from leather

High quality leather cleaner spray and horse hair brush and a ton of scrubbing might work. Its in a bad spot to scrub unfortunately.

Re: Radio, nav, lights, etc. shut off while driving.

I did some searching and it sounds like it could be the culprit! Would the sun visor mirror test work on our cars too? That sounds like a definitive way to tell.

Re: Los Angeles: Airbag Light Reset

Iíve had an airbag light on before, if you have a code reader, try clearing it a bunch of times. Worked for me. I have just a generic bmw code reader. Its worth a shot.
