Amazing that Rick Perry gets lambasted when his state has a booming economy. My daughter lives in Austin, it is a beautiful place and I would move in a minute if needed there. Tough crowd, do your job as Governor and get blasted anyway...

The one thing to watch for is Liqui Moly has several 5W-30's meeting a variety of different specs. Here is the American version with a slightly different name - chemistry is the same: Link. Appears it's not that easy to come by in the U.S. though.

The only thing I heard is that buying and programming a BCM to your car's VIN can get expensive. I would check any electrical grounds you can see and make sure they look clean and not corroded, and apply a dielectric grease over them for protection.

Mechanical /Maintenance Forum
You have a short to ground in that circuit. If the BCM was bad, the trunk wouldn't open at all. In the meantime, disconnect the electrical harness that goes to the trunk latch solenoid and just use your key to open the trunk.

Yea, not too bad. BUT I would never go 50,000 miles before checking/replacing the PCV. I clean them around every 5-10k miles, nad if they don't rattle freely, I replace them.

Guzzi's are cool...and very long lived. A mate has almost 300k kilometres on his. It dropped a valve a little while ago and tickled the piston. Top end job done....good to go. 1000cc LeMans. It seems to handle pretty good as well.
