I think you may be confused where you are. This is e46 fanatics. Note how it's not called e46 cheapskates or e46 hacks.

Best advice is to replace in pairs. Or sell and buy a chevy.
I hate to break it to you but most of you are what the industry consider hacks. This is not your day job. I don't mean hacks in a bad way though. I hack my way through computer problems all the time. The way you snipe me is why very few master techs want to come here and offer help. Keep that in mind when you bite the hands that try to feed you. I thinks a lot of people here are trying to fix their own cars to save some money. I sometimes actually resist helping you all as I know the crap it will bring. Good Day and spending more money than you have to as it will support our economy.

Lol. "Master" mechs like you just hack away at jobs as quick as you can to make a buck. We don't need your generic master hack advice around here. Many of us could do your job no problem. We just chose more lucrative professions.

You know not of what you are talking about. I've never been a hack and lost a lot of money doing work correctly. I've been a BMW master tech since 1986 and fixed more cars than you will ever dream about. Good luck out there! I've been pretty civil and you have shown yourself as the ass you are. That kind of makes sense since you consider yourself a fanatic. A fanatic always thinks they are right and won't take advice from anyone. Oh by the way you could never ever do my job.
