My Ride: 02' 325i
Installed new windshield washer pump, fixed side mirror cover via DIY zip tie trick and fixed my trunk lip thingy (I know, real technical term). Its the black handle you pull to open the trunk. It had broken away from the bolts... All better now!!

Should have done a DIY on the trunk handle repair... Nothing like a dremel, 1 1/4" washers and some patience. I think its now stronger than OEM and looks as good as new

My Ride: '03 325Ci, '04 X3
Verified my check engine light doesn't come on, ever, by instrument cluster test.

Figured I ought to scan it, since it had ran rough briefly yesterday for the first time. And my cruise control has been inop since we bought the car last month, and all the forum threads say MAF. I always thought that was weird since I had no check engine light, but now I know why that is.

Guess what code was set? P0102, MAF. Checked the data stream, MAF reading was 0 at all times. So new MAF tonight and all is well and cruise works.

Also had pending cyl #5 and #6 misfire codes, which explains the rough run yesterday. Picked up a set of plugs, since I'm about 700 miles away from 100K anyway, and that'll give me a chance to check out coils, etc while I'm at it.

doesn't that hit your roof or window when you open the trunk? is that wire on the left there just for fit test, will you route it through the inside of the truck?
