I'm in the north east, no mechanic friends but theres a local shop I trust. Don't really wanna pay to get it cleared. Assuming you can't just disconnect the battery in these cars for a while to reset it?

Obviously it's not illegal since autozone sells scanners that'll clear codes all day long... But they won't clear it for you with their own scanner (some stupid policy).

You're in Moutain Top right (going by "Crestwood")..? If so, I'll be back in town for a couple hours Friday night/Saturday morning. I could clear them for you.

We're doing the Lord's work, my friend. Checking and clearing codes one car at a time. I carry vacuum line with me at all times.

My smoked sidemarkers came today, so I slapped those on and have it a quick detail. Nothing is better then a clean black e46!
Had to take some pics to show of the new plate delete strip and newly painted black trim, brought back my exterior from looking 12 years old! Now it's needs a good buffing and some clear led tails! Looking forward to meeting up with Terra in the morning to get my damn SES light cleared since I fixed that issue and maybe some coding to

Actually, i like tuscan's old setup better. But i'm just generally not a fan of chrome especially on small cars.


ps. no excuse for egg yolk effect? stealth amber bulbs are cheap as hell.
