Our '98 740i has 340k miles, and now the problems we're having seem to be stemming from the GM3. But you know what? Not many cars make it to this many miles.

So the wipers haven't been working and we changed the motor, the relays, etc.. Well, we've had a couple other minor problems, such as the remote keylock not reliably working.

Suddenly today we...

I'm looking on eBay right now, actually. :)

Also as far as the switch, it DOES turn on the jets. But the wiper motor, even the new one, does nothing. No sound at all.
