I put my front bumper on after it was painted yesterday. And I was going to wash it but it started to rain.

I cussed a storm at it when i found a sneaky coolant leak. It's such a small leak that I never saw anything wet, but it had leaked aplenty. Right on the underside of the lower rad hose where it attaches to the thermostat, right below the point where the clip clips. That's gonna be a chore to get off w/o breaking anything.

Then I ordered a new lower radiator hose, IAT O-ring for temp sensor, and gallon of coolant. All Genuine BMW, total: $47 shipped.

Where did you get it painted (dealer, body shop, Maaco?) and can I ask how much?? Need to get mine done.

Had it washed/waxed and detailed by noon...; by 4pm I added a nice scratch near the right tail light.

Any hugged tip on how to fix that scratch..? I would like to do it myself, but I'll also consider a shop..?
