I am new to this site and BMW. I have not found post for my car besides the problem posts on all 5 series. I recently purchase a 2004 545i 6 speed -sport suspension -navigation etc. Love the car. Purchased at 43,500 miles in May -2 Months later it has 50,100 miles. I have never experienced a better ride. I have owned a few cars in my life including a 911 Porsche – 300E Mercedes
Some update on IPod questions -I have installed at BMW the latest IPod connection. $695 later -it all works -steering controls- by Genre, by artist, by CD, by playlist, by podcast and every track. It does load slow as I have a 80-gig IPod with +/-5410 tracks on. They all seem to work unless someone has a way of checking. I had to loose my 6 CD changer to do this conversion but it was worth it. During this install my cars computers were also updated to the latest version of software. What a great update it was to my navigation system- all the complaints I had were fixed, like a search for a restaurant used to just show all restaurants –it now has a key word search and distance restriction.
I have maintained all of my cars to date including two Porsche motor rebuilds. As 50,000 miles was my warrantee, where do I find any information or manuals on this car –Bentley books etc. I do have a Porsche Bentley book –great information? Or am I wasting my time.
