Nah, the entire deal. Get one of those kits. Right now one of the guys from ZHPMafia is going to send me a sensor, since it really sounds like a sensor over the tstat.

So havent been on here much lately. Havent given you guys the bad news..... My rear passenger door got smashed in. It was a hit & run in a parking lot. Its a pretty big dent but will probably pull out for the most part but the door is definitely gonna need work.

I really don't wanna claim it on my insurance right now so I haven't decided what to do yet. I'll post some pics up soon.

Why is keeping the STL thread going like pulling teeth? Don't you guys have interesting things to talk about?! Replaced my temp sensor... still having issues. I think my thermostat is sticking open.

We need pics of your car btw.. Those bumpers turned out very nice. I didn't get to see the rear before it was finished.

And you leaving me in the dust on the highway doesn't count!!

What happened to your door?

I got to get mine done also. I bought a stewart water pump and I'm going to replace that along with it. Here's a picture of the e46 touring in nightvision. Sorry for being blurry.

Thats pretty neat...

So turns out I won't be worrying about my cooling system for a little bit.






I got smashed by a lady driving down my street... Things aren't looking good.

Damn! That sucks!

What is with us? A few of us all get in trouble with the law in a short time period and then our cars start getting smashed up around the same time.

Well, in the event my car is totaled, here is what I'm going to try to pick up:

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/cto/3358859577.html

Here is some info on the car:
"125xxx I performed the rebuild myself I don't like other people doing my work don't really trust others about 7,000 since rebuild the suspension is in great condition new m3 bushings and lowering springs the flywheel and clutch are stock they were in great shape so I didn't replace them but I'm actually thinking about putting in a new clutch very soon.the clutch is still in great shape but the throw out bearing is starting to make noise so that's on my list it has dinan chip k&n filter also with exhaust (quiet) no rust on shock towers shocks are great also new ball joints alignment control arms it also has every alpina badge and looks.....last time i checked guibo looked ok (8months ago)...brakes and wheel bearings are good the only wiring issue I've noticed is the temp gauge likes to jump and move back n forth if you tap on the speedo it jumps around its a common problem"

Sounds pretty good to me. If my car gets totaled, I'll see about getting a PPI on that car. It would be sweet to buy back my car, pull the motor and drop her into the E30, but I'd take the car as is.

Only thing I have to figure out is how I'm going to manage securing a loan on it. :\ Anyone have any tips?
