I am in the middle of the oil separator job right now. Thanks for your input here. I want to make sure I get that dipstick back in properly.
As a sidenote, my 330i is going to be sitting in the garage for another week because I didn't order genuine BMW parts. I ordered after-market oil separator and hoses. The separator won't connect to one of the hoses, so now I have to wait for new parts to get shipped to me. It sucks. I really wanted to finish everything this weekend.
I just wanted to vent.
