I will end up looking at a new car if it is totaled (should find out in 2-3 days). Been looking at a few 2006 330i's right now but not really sure what I am going to do.

Personally, I hate the look of halogens. And in my search of a new car, I am not sure I can buy one with them. Just takes away from the car but I think that is something of personal preference.

It was on the lower part of the air intake box, sprayed elsewhere and on the tension pulley. Didn't think I had green fluids in the car (coolant is blue).
