Glad you confirmed that. I have the genuine BMW one. Seems like it'll hold up.

REALLY excited to get this damper on the car.

Everyone make sure that you also let Anthony know if you need a 4 or 5 rib AC pulley.

Good to hear, I guess the crank itself can stand up to 300lbs ft lbs ok? bending it would not be good

Put me down to buying the tool. I prefer the convenience of owning my own tools.

I sent them an OEM crank bolt and they charged $50 to machine it into an adapter for their tool.

The ATI puller/installer tool comes with a bunch of adapters and bolts that you're paying for, but that you don't need for a BMW. If someone knew of a puller/installer with the same thread that cost $40 instead of $150- it would be interesting. Maybe the thread on these things is standard and the ATI adapter will work with something loanable from Autozone

Anthony...anyway to get just what we need for your BMWs? Or can we just do a group buy for crank bolts at retail and then send some extra money for the crank bolt and ATI to machine the threads onto the end of the bolts?

Real OEM is showing 5 a 5 rib belt for production dates up to 09/2002 and a 4 rib belt for production dates after 09/2002.

I'll get off my butt and x2 check anyway.
