comment Car Battery Dying Overnight - Disconnected
You should also bring the bad battery with you as they might have a core charge rebate (bring dead battery and get a discount). They'll definitely recycle bad battery for you.

revised Will a radiator still work properly if laid on its side?
No such word as "layed." My monkey brain knew there was a spelling error but I couldn't see it on the page.

So you and I are both agreeing with this answer: don't even start an overfilled car.

I'd recommend making your recent edit even stronger: put it at the top of the answer in bold.

I'd recommend that you take a still picture (or two) from your youtube video to illustrate the situation as well. It helps those of us that can't reach youtube right now.

comment Can you rinse air filters with water?
It would help if you were more specific about which particular air filter you're asking about. Air intake filter for the engine? Cabin air filter for the ventilation system?

comment How reliable is a second hand 2011 bmw 335i?
The problem with shopping advice is that it does not lend itself well to a definitive answer. However, we do have a chatroom that is excellent for this sort of open-ended discussion.

comment What potentially may be wrong with a front-right leg of a stabilizer?
I just noticed "it's just a metal stick with two moving parts on its ends" - yes, that describes almost every really important part of the car :-)

comment Looking at car mileage
As written, this question is open-ended and answers are going to be opinion-based. That makes it hard to answer definitively. If you'd like to have a discussion about these or related issues, a better place to ask would be in the chat room

comment How can I get rid of door dings?
@MDMoore313, the product will often have useful directions. I usually wait until the wax is dry / hazy enough to see clearly. Use of cotton cloths will avoid scratchy polyester fibers. I tend to bias towards vertical passes on the sides of the car and fore-aft passes on the horizontal surfaces.
