Looking forward to a test drive tonight.

That's unreal that they have a recall for the tail lights but not the headlights.

DONT trust anyone !

I did my own oil Change today and realized the dealership (Stevens Creek BMW) did not put back drain plug plastic cover and they put 2 crush washers on the drain bolt when they changed my oil 6 months ago (7500 k ago).

Broke the passenger side front window regulator. Yeah, it has been creaking for a while, but never ordered a new one. Didn't feel like doing the zip tie fix so I went ahead and ordered a new one.

And the window is now propped up by a piece of lumber until the replacement comes.

Well just undo the bolts then measure how long they can be at max before hitting and then cut of that lenght. After that rubb the top with a sand papper gently and then reinstall. I did this to mine and worked perfectly now the trottle goes all the way down.

Same thing happened to my friend the other night, except he got it at the junkyard and got it for a $100 and its an e90

on a more positive note, my mtechii arrived in the mail. Now I'm just waiting on the brackets that should be here later today, tomorrow ill leave the car at impressive for install and paint.

I would have, if it wasn't my DD. I needed it done ASAP. But today it was raining, and the door is leaking. So I'm positive they either didn't seat the vapor barrier correctly or they tore it. So going back this afternoon. I have a lifetime guarantee on their work, so they have to fix it.
