-fix headliner

such is life of a bmw owner

The sad thing is, the intake will probably still be available by the time you've had your way with your car, since the people on this forum are too broke, too cheap, or both.

Costco is hands down best for tires. Except they don't have the PSS I want.

I can't wait for them you swap out the e90 sedan in front of my Costco with a F30 I saw one a couple weeks ago with xenons and the new halo/Transformer/Tron headlights. Looks worthy.

I wonder how reliability is going to be on the new motor. A 4-cylinder that can do brake-stands is epic.

THANK YOU, finally someone hasn't said "same as 300." It isn't. Different connector, and there's supposedly something slightly different with the sensor as well. Same diameter though.
