Yes. My "new" bumper is complete, from a 328i with the sport package.

did you have a code for the front speed sensors? My ABS/ASC lights on my 36 are lit and I was thinking that was it.

unfortunately, my INPA/GT1 setup wont read those ABS codes through the ADS port. Need a new cable which I dont really want to spend 100 bucks on. This is a summer convertible fun car, so not terribly worried about it. Will be garaged half the year.

nope, not for a 36. I need a specific ADS capable cord as the OBD2 to ADS adaptor doesnt really work with all the modules of the 36. I can read basic OBD stuff, but I cant really get into the goodies.

Bled my cooling system once more. If the temps are still high I'm changing my thermostat probably tomorrow or the day after. If that doesn't solve my issue I give up.

Someone with the INPA software with ADS scanned my cars modules. He connected it to the pin connector under the hood. And yes it scanned the abs codes. Front left wheel speed sensor was the culprint.

My Ride: '04 Cadillac Deville


13k miles in 6 months. Stupidly I overtightened one of my VCG bolts today and broke the stud off. Ordered new stud and washer bolt and they should be here at end of week.
