Maybe this is a case where I have forgotten the benefit of 30 years 
experience, as I did a complete 12K service on a Roadster a month or so ago, including 
battery inspection/service, and the whole job clocked at 2.75 hours. Sometimes 
i forget that everybody doesn't take BMWs apart all day every day.
