My Ride: 2005 E46 325 CI
My Area code is 702

Hi Guys,

I couldn't come up with a interesting or witty title so I settled for my area code. I'm not hip or cool enough to use the phrase "702 rEpReSeNt!!@!@#$@$!"

Anyways I bought a 2005 BMW 3 series almost half a year ago... polly 2 months ago I notice certain things about my car not performing so well. I'm kinda sick of paying out the ass to the BMW dealership (F U DESERT BMW of Las Vegas/Henderson!!) so they can ram fees and bills up my rectum under the pretenses of "service" and "quality" or whatever....

Considering that the HONDA dealership wrecked my last ride because their technicians never bother to replace the transmission oil or much less check the dipstick (which actually has a separate transmission dipstick!!!!) and the transmission committed suicide.

I decided to go the DIY route. If something happens or a big screw up occurs I have no one to blame and hell I'd be satisified that it happened under my sheer incompetence and not someone elses.. After all, if I killed the entire service department in revenege, it would be considered homocide... They can't do **** if I in anger killed myself.... now can they?

So I figured I might as well register and join the cool kids, considering I spent more than 4 hours every night stalking and prowling this forum for knowledge. And that I think I developed a hardon everytime someone mentions VANOS or gasket...this is the BMW car porn forum right? okay just kidding and all joking aside......

....So whats up folks?
