Yeah I'm the second owner and as far as I know they're the original RTABs and suspension. I know of the camber because of the previous alignment and the toe should be 0 on the back.

Does anybody know of a suspension specialist in SoCal? I want someone that can figure out what I need to replace (RTABS, shocks) or install (camber kit) to fix my tire wear issues. I prefer...

Make sure you use high-quality, and probably heat-resistant paint. The prior owner of my car tried painting it a black/gunmetal mix and it caked onto the original clear coat. Not even quite sure if...

Disconnect the wire, push down on the tabs while sliding the whole thing leftward. It's pretty stuck in there, but after you get it out you'll realize that you just needed to slide it leftward.

Nah, BMW says do it every 15,000 and most people here do it every 6-7k miles. Possibly O2 sensors? Try going into the garage and tighten your gas cap just in case it's that. I've made that dumb...

My M3 used to stall out when I disengage it from high RPMs - turned out that a new gas pedal fixed that problem. There's little correlation there, but it's probably something to do with the pedal...

My 2002 vert is past 117k now. I think most of you are underestimating the car, you just need to take care of it and it can run like a champ. I agree with the 175-200k mark before a major engine...

Take the opportunity to upgrade to LEDs. It's not like you got a convertible (which is a much more difficult swap to LEDs). :(

Extended warranty. If I remember right, it's a MY2002, but manufacture date of something like 5/02 and purchase year of 2003. I'm sure it's expired now seeing how it's somewhere near 113k miles.
