I'd be DIY too if I had space. I bought the car new and have paid for maintenance up until now - it's expensive but certain things on the car are a little complicated so indy prices are fair. I just...

Oof that's a lot. But if I drive 1,000 miles on Long Island and Nj over the course of a month, isn't that the same?

Ok so then that means water pump and expansion tank. I don't think the radiator is in bad shape. How much should that cost at a Indy shop? I don't have the tools or space to do it myself...

Hi All,

I've got a '04 325i with just under 134k miles. It's in great shape and it's been well maintained, but I don't think the cooling system has been flushed in about 6 years (roughly 60-70k...

I have used Sonax products (hybrid paint cleaner/wax, Gold Class wax, and others) with great success. They are harder to find unless shopping online, though. And can be pricey.

Thanks. So they get back to you with an appointment once there are airbags available, or they give you an appointment based on when they think they'll have stock?

Yeah anything that's rubber will have to be looked at if the previous owner didn't change them. I have an iPhone, so I'll look into the OBD reader products that are compatible - that's for that tip!

@Epidemike, do you know anyone in the Flemington, NJ area where I could go for a PPI? I live in NYC and my local mechanic is on Long Island (the Little Garage), but that's too far away.
