You can read on that until your eyes cross around here. At this point in the life cycle, if the clutch hasn't been changed, that's probably it. You can do full and partial SMG resets, change fluid,...

Make sure the doors are unlocked. I don't mean to insult anyone, but the trunk button doesn't work unless all doors are unlocked. At least that's how mine has been lately. I'm uncertain as to...

I think you lose the ski pass any way it goes, even with BSW. Check that to be sure though. That is, I don't think going free air to keep the ski pass is an available option.

The Bavarian Soundwerks (BSW) unit is actually a free air sub. Don't quote me on this, but I think it's an Alumapro. My memory is fuzzy, but I recall looking into all this, as that's what I'm...

Good stuff. Mine turned out to be the salmon relay which was throwing the codes. Not the ones you had. Something to do with "implausible input signal" or something. I still get a little stuttering...

Right. I just figure when it goes bad, it won't be intermittent. I'm in between services now. But this will be on the list at the next service.

My guess is TPMS sensors starting to go. Any good tire shop (or the dealer) should be able to check remaining life on the sensors. They are battery operated and eventually need replacing as the...

Then you're in for a treat. Nice color combo. Carbon over Imola is also hot. Mine has cost me virtually nothing in 3 years and 20k miles (oil changes, tires, brakes and stereo excluded).

I went with a combo -- Dynavin head, BSW drivers and sub, Hertz tweeters and amps. I've been happy thus far, though I may double back and improve on the sub. Fitment is what BSW are selling in my...

I think that's because for die-hard track folks, real or imagined (a lot of M3 buyers) only a coupe works, as witnessed by the fact that ZCP wasn't available on a convertible. Chassis stiffness,...

And keep in mind these cars are known to be good for at least double that mileage, which is why they are so sought after. Of course, you have to keep up your prior owner's tradition of care.

+1. Of course, I'm no professional driver, so the SMG was for me. Also, IMHO, the only thing that beats a "proper M3" is the top down, enjoying all that fun and exhaust note "with a lot more room"...

I wonder if the slave is what's ruining these pumps, the same way a leaky air line will ruin air ride pumps and modules.
