Don't say that that z3 is road legal in us, coz if it is, damn, i guess smashing those lamps with a hammer would be a good start for a safety conversation wouldn't it? Stock FTW!(If it i***1099; Mtech )

My flipped original O-ring on the PS reservoir was a noble experiment that failed.

Got a new 'ring at Ace Hardware. OD was 1 7/8"; cross section skinnier than you'd think. 55 cents.

it does not snow in Atlanta very often. Let's hope that everyone slows down a bit and makes it to their destination safely.

No snow on the street it looks like. That's basically just rain until it freezes tonight. That's what makes snow dangerous in the South. We had a little on the roads today, so I went out for lunch and tested the grip a little with my brakes. I had more grip than rain haha.

I got the correct part for half of what you spent on the wrong part.

Genuine BMW: 25 cents

But Ace Hardware is right on my way home. BMW dealership would've required a significantly longer trip. More gas burned, higher effective price. The right part is one that works, especially for something as noncritical as an O-ring for a reservoir.

Now if I had other parts I was getting from the stealership, sure, go ahead and throw 'em in the order. But for a one-off, Ace turned out to be the Place.

I didn't have to even touch my car keys to order my o-ring a few years ago. Same when I ordered a new reservoir which includes a new o-ring. This is why you maintain your car on your schedule and not your car's.

That's where you and I differ. I do some maintenance on a preventative basis, but other non-critical things I deal with as they come along. Doesn't mean that my car is neglected.
