Could that have been the original? Check the date on it if you find it and let us know!

I'm thinking that's one of the few things that could stop me...that, alt, and starter...so appreciate the 'intelligence' from the future for me!

I heard that if you're on E46 Fanatics enough, your oil changes will start to sync up with other Fanatics' oil changes, much like menstruation with women. Is this true?
