This is from the ad so it cranks but doesn't turn over. I guess it's worth a look.

In addition to air, you need 3 things for combustion to occur: spark, fuel, and compression. I would check for those three things in that order. Start with pulling out the spark plugs and check their...

Yep. That's the OFHG. It's hard to tell form the last picture but the other ones certainly point in that direction.

I have never heard back from BMW Canada since I spoke with them last time.

So my car (2002 530i Sport 5MT) has ~253,000 kms (157,000 miles) and the original radiator has finally failed. Needless to say, I'm surprised it lasted this long. The build date of my car is March of...

If I recall correctly, I think they quoted me about 1.5 or 2 hours of labour. I can't remember exactly.
