Thanks but after 8 months of trying I finally gave up. I traded the car in.
I enjoyed driving the car, it was maintained like a champ and it was a rare XI with a 5 speed manual. I miss it, but economically I could not justify dropping $2000 for replacement cats in a car only worth $5000.
I got a 2005 X3 at practically wholesale pricing, have another post about it out there. In short, The X3 was stickered at $17,700, they wanted to move it to meet sales objectives, gave it to me for $13k - 5k trade in = $8k out of pocket.
