      When you say magic eraser....you you mean the scrub pad you use in the bathroom or another chemical/cleaner?

      I've never heard of anyone using one of the pads in a car before.

      That being said, the E39 is probably the last dead nuts reliable BMW ever made.

      You're supposed to pull the lower rear seats up before folding the top part down so the floor sits flat. ;)

      As long as all your monitors show ready before the CEL comes back, yeah. If you show up with anything in a non ready state they will tell you to drive more and come back.

      Wouldn't a leaky cam seal be visible from the engine bay?

      Oil cooler is on the "right" side underneath. And the gaskets do go bad on that. Not sure how bad it leaks if they completely fail though.
