Guys...recommendations for a shop to fix my fuel pump? Sigh...you were right, Kalim. It's not covered. Great....Dealership wants $1500 for it. Is that really how much that kind of stuff costs?!

Way too much, but it's not going to be super cheap, either.

Too bad it's not a 20-minute job on your car like on E46s.

I picked my car up, wheels look amazing, runs fine...get it home and hear trickling. Look under the car and there's a blue river. Opened the hood and went to check the coolant level and the dealership didn't bother to tighten down my ET cap.

I have a feeling that this is the alleged thermostat leak. The thermostat got a decent shower. I topped it off and ran it and no leaks that I can see
