No... but my PC is equipped with a calculator that I can access easily by hitting the windows key in the bottom left corner of my keyboard. All PC's come with them. Your BB should have a calculator on it too.

Your bike = owned for 34 months, 20,600 put on by you. 7,271 miles per year that YOU'VE ridden your bike.....


....wait... are you MOCKING me? Numbers man, WTF?

Since were at it, I got my 04 325i brand new on December 03. Traded it in feb 07. I put 55k on it. What's the numbers?

And I'm not that needy to cover the projector housing itself. I'm sure it's meant not to be touched.

+1 I wouldnt mess with the actual projector lens, also I am sure that thing gets hot as hell, so dont know what it would do to laminx. if your gonna laminx just get the kind that is precut to fit the headlights. On the website LaminX sells a kit that would cover the headlights, turnsignals, and fogs for $50, not sure if you could find just the headlight part through a sponsor.

Sorry man, got a lot of $hit to do today so no can do lunch. Later in the day is usually better for me to meet up, are you all doing a wash or something later. might be able to make it out?

Yeah that's a tough one to sheer off. It snapped while you were torquing it down you said? Is any part exposed or is it flush with the surface?

Ideally you are going to have to drill that thing out with a carbide bit, but you want to be careful not to eat steering knuckle up while you're at it. May be best to remove the whole thing from the car and work on a bench (or bring to a machine shop and have them attack it). For an experienced machinist with the right tools I'd imagine this would be a quick fix for them and save you a bit of a headache. It'll be easier working off the car than under it at least, if the bolt extractor broke as well it sounds like it could be cross-threaded which will need a thread repair. Either end up tapping it or getting a thread insert. I have a tap & die set if needed. See if you can find timeserts locally, they are a bit more robust than helicoils.
