So my service guy called this morning, and ran through the list of things that they did for my car.

Inspection 1, done (at 20K).

Steering wheel slip ring replaced, yet the high pitched noise while turning the wheel remained.:banghead: New steering column ordered.

Diff noise caused by shield rubbing, realigned.

So here are the list of things that broke on my car:

1. Engine.
2. Steering column.
3. Throttle Potentiometer.
4. Blasted rubber window guide.
5. Sticky Throttle.
6. Head Gasket guide bolt on the now departed engine.:angel:

Hmm, I wonder what the list will be like at the end of next year? I plan on going to at least 6 schools, if not more.

Maybe they should just direct-wire it at WOT. :D

All DBW throttles before about 07/02 build can get a sticky/notchy feeling to them. Like the pedal movement is in small steps rather than continuous.

There is a service bulletin out about the problem. Not just M3s but other cars with throttle by wire.
