Kentucky Crew - 2011 Chat
 
Hey guys & gals,

We had a pretty good thread last year (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=743248), lets keep it going!

Welcome all 2011 members from KY, hopefully they find this thread.

Lets use this thread to chat, and help out other KY members when their E46 is down! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'm not aware of anything to be honest.

40220 here. My 330ci is still down. Got in a wreck in the end of October. Took the repairs myself. Total cost was 4100. This is all the parts I have ordered, paint and body shop repair. Should have her back up again in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I have been driving an 03 CooperS, a very fun car.

BimmerFerret 01-14-2011 07:57 AM

My Dad has an 2010 Cooper S. Pretty sweet car. You would never know that turbo is there!

Mines about to go and get a coolant flush and getting all the hoses and the pump checked and to find a vibration near my front passenger wheel. I wanted to do this myself but we couldnt get any ramps. :/

ganicki 01-15-2011 04:03 PM

Just put new front axles on mine--weird brake wear had some new pads on the front, drivers side axle was fused to the carrier -- wouldn't press out so had to get a new one--always something on a 150K mile car

I live in Louisville (curently deployed). I have a 01 330i supercharged. On a side note, I have parts and possibly my car to sell (since I'm deployed).

I agree. Seems like you are always playing catch up!! :(

Do you have any jack / jackstands? You don't have to use ramps if you don't have them. I don't even have ramps :(

Let me know how that vibration turns out. When I brake, I hear a clunk noise after I let off the brakes at the passenger front. I've already replaced the pads/rotors, but I'm about to bleed the system next. I really hope it isn't the caliper :(

I have a jack but i wouldnt put it under my car lol, it looks like it could fall apart. My vibration is when im stopped but im in drive like at a drive thru, but it stops when in park.

Im not from Louisville but im pretty sure im going. :thumbup:

BimmerFerret 01-19-2011 06:53 AM

Man my car is still down thanks to this vendor (NOT a forum sponsor). I ordered my parts on January 5th, 2011 right? It is January 19th, 2011 and I nothing. Nada.

I got the bracket that holds the expansion tank with the drain screw, and a fuel filter, along some other tiny part. It isn't like I'm order a M54 engine block lol.

BimmerFerret 01-19-2011 12:45 PM

Actually cancel that. I just got notification the parts have been delivered to my home. 14 days... Jeez. Let me be frank: Sometimes the cheapest price doesn't mean the best deal. Even if it is OEM. I can take my car being down for 7 days, but anything longer than 10 and I start to get paranoid.

///TRNSPRTR 01-19-2011 11:44 PM

Could it have been the weather that caused a delay?

kybmw 01-20-2011 08:36 PM
