As a first time e46 and BMW owner Ive been greatly happy with the amount of work ive been able to do myself. Ive done mostly pm stuff, rear struts strut mounts brakes disks plugs fuel filter and have been impressed with how easy it has been. I have found some things to be less of a hassle to take to the dealer. I have a extended warranty that has come in handy. Had a 1300 bill when they told me a "wheel bearing locked up" causing it to take out the caliper and brakes. Well here to find out the caliper locked up. I was pissed because I could have done all of that myself. Needless to say I no longer go to Kelly BMW Columbus Ohio and now go to MAG BMW and really watch what they say. I let them find the problems then I go and fix it for a fraction. Had dealer do auto tranny fluid at 75k while under warranty incase it stopped working i could blame them and use the warranty for a new tranny
