    I read in another forum that BMW may reimburse owners of failed fuel strip if they paid out of pocket for the replacement. Have any of you had any experience getting a refund?

    My 05 RT did this on two separate occasions. I cleaned the wiring that goes to the potentiometer attached to the transmission and mine cleared up.

    8,500 miles on a cross-country trip 2 years ago. Added about 1/8 of a quart when my buddy was filling his and had some left over. I never worried about running that far; oil was only 3 weeks old...

    I can't speak for the PR 3s and extra miles with the heavier duty tire, but I get about 3k more miles from a "B" Pirelli ST than a normal tire of same kind. I ride solo about 98% of the time and...

    I've replaced so many H7 bulbs on my RTs (an 05 and now an 09) that I got fed up with doing it. So, I installed a HID kit from DDM Tuning ($35.00 plus shipping for two kits) and stopped the madness....

    I know my odor is not due to the clutch; it appears sometimes after long runs on the slab, as well as riding around town. Don't smell it all the time, but pretty frequently it's there. Also, a...

    FWIW, my 05 RT used non-synthetic oil until almost 30K miles. Then it stopped using any, so I switched to synthetic. Never needed to add oil again between oil changes.
