Well, got a new job. Woo. This means I'll be able to afford to fix my car! Or I may pay it off a bit and go buy a 1.

Recommend shop for PPI?

Hi guys, looks like a pretty active group here in St L. I'm considering buying an E46 currently f/s in the area, but I'm not local. Can anyone suggest a good shop to do a pre-sale inspection for me? I'd like to get the car inspected before I fly in, make a deal and (hopefully) drive it home.

In case you're wondering why I'd travel that far, it's the exact car I want, rare color combo, right options, etc -- a very HTF version.

Any recommendations? Thanks!

I've had my car in at http://www.bavarianstl.com/. They do a pretty good job and I'm sure if you give them a call and set something up they would do a PPI. That's the only shop I've dealt with, though. A few other guys here might be able to give you some solid input as well.

What are you looking at, if you dont mind me asking?

I have only taken my car to autohaus. If you go there talk with linda, she is awesome and the best personal rep in the area IMO.

Yo whats up guys! Welcome back Jay. And that sucks Randy. Just to follow up with our text, if the tow company is taking care of the costs, Don's Body Shop off 3128 Woodson Road did a good job on my front bumper. You've seen. Hit up Dennis at 314-429-2094. They do pretty good work and I have had no issues with anything they have done.

So this weekend I finally changed out my thermostat and waterpump. Along with that, replaced my transmission fluid. It wasn't too tough to do considering I had no idea what I was doing. Regardless, took me about 4 hours and everything was buttoned back up. Finally no temp issues. I wanted to replace the rear diff fluid also, but I didnt have a 14 mm hex. One thing I did find though, was a broken plastic panel just above the skid plate that WAS suppose to have been replaced by Bavarian. Not to pleased about that. I don't believe they charged me for the part, but it was under the "to-do" task I requested from them. I'll have to review my receipt. I'll be pissed if I paid for it. I also got a set of front tires, so finally new tires all the way around. It was a productive weekend for me.

I've been looking at a 2011 135i that they have there.....I'm taking it to get a PPI at Bimmers'r'us on Monday. I think they are priced pretty high, so we'll see how the "sales process" goes.

I need to get a new VCG set and tackle that soon. We need to have project day while Jay is around.

I've fixed a lot over the last few months but the list keeps growing!
