Working on my bosses 98 M3. What is the best way to get at the starter? It looks like the intake has to come off. Thanks in advance.

looks like the best way is to remove the intake manifold. Anyone done this? Any helpful hints? Thanks.

Hi, I am trying to remove the tansmission from my M3 evo and have taken the intake manifold off...........the starter motor is accessible with it off, but it is still very difficult
