    I know that Silver Spring has done a bunch, including my own.

    I'm not really sure what training the fix required. Maybe "you have to replace the airbag with this part number, and not an older one?"

    D4 ATF is one of the lightest fluids that you can put in. Combine that with the fact that the transmission was hot (making the fluid lighter still), and on an uphill incline (which drains fluid away...

    Well, first things first:

    1) Do you have a lightweight flywheel installed? If so, the noise is normal. Ignore it, or put in a stock clutch.

    2) Are you so bothered by the noise that you need to...

    Vehicle Appraisers

    Anyone have any recommendations? A fedex truck tried to drive across the front of my S50B32 E30, and I am concerned that they will try to total it.

    How far does the strut rod compress? My preferred technique for this is to leave everything in place on the car, support the knuckle with a jack (the car should be close to the ground), disconnect...

    Attorney if you don't want jail time. And if you want to get a security clearance, it's also an issue. Net-net, only an idiot refuses to lawyer up.

    In my experience, the car will get in range just fine after a swap. (Personal experience: 323 to "330" and 528iT to "530iT.") Headers, on the other hand, seem to completely befuddle the software.

    On a track day car, buy PFC06es. They are a little bit more up front, but they last so much longer than anything else I've seen, it's just not funny.

    My old '04 M3 had a tab get caught in the timing chain. It occupied a lift at Sterling for something like 10-12 weeks.

    The exhaust tabs fail relatively frequently, unfortunately.
  21. So, is BMW going to continue supporting the Susan G. Komen foundation?

    Now that they've realigned themselves with the pro-life movement, that hardly seems appropriate.
