Is it possible to answer a question on this board without snarky and juvenile, and without all the smilies? I don't claim to know much about cars; that's why I posted the question.

I don't see...

Can I remove the limiter without putting in a performance chip?

Having read scores of threads about chips, I've decided not to get one.

Nonetheless, I'd still like to get rid of the limiter.

Is there a way to remove the limiter without installing a...

The extended warranty I bought requires an oil change every 4,000 miles. From I'm reading above, that's pretty close to what's correct for a 2004 BMW--is that right?

This fits what I've read and heard elsewhere. I just bought my first BMW: a 2004 330ci with sport package for $15,500. I also bought an extended warranty for 100,000 on top of its current mileage...

Thanks; I'll have my mechanic check the sensor when I get the oil changed in about 750 miles.

As for filling it with water, I was puzzled by that too. Here's what it says in my manual: "Headlamp...

Washer fluid light won't go out

I bought a 2004 330ci a month ago. The washer unit went empty this week and the washer fluid light on the dashboard came on, so I filled it with water (as per the manual), but the washer fluid light...

This sounds interesting and important--what's involved in having the car washed underneath? Where do I get that done, how often, and what does it cost? Why is it so effective in prolonging the life...

Three weeks ago I bought a 2004 330ci with 73,400 miles on it; it's up to just under 75,000 now. I had a mechanic inspect it; it needed new control arm bushings, new rear shocks, and a couple of new...

Does the $200 refer to the cost of the extra coats of clear alone (with more money required for the sanding and pigmented paint itself)?

I'm puzzled. It seems to take an expert to tell when the seats are not leather, leatherette seems to last longer, and leather costs more. What's the advantage to having leather?
