Cool

Sounds good. I was there yesterday and a guy called saying the dealer was going to charge him over a grand for a water hose issue on his 7 Series. Marc told him it should be about half that.

What broke on the front end that will cost you $3000 to fix? A control arm is $122. A tie rod is less.
Where did you take it? The dealer?

I always went with Sparco because they work. They also have pre-made brackets and sliders for many cars. E30 is one of them. Don't go with aluminum seat. I've heard people they don't do that...

Did you do the timing belt while you were in there? How about a leak down test?
I would change all the bushings on the car. Rear shocktower mounts? Check out Turner's JTD909s.

40 Cold?

I would disagree, and maybe I'm wrong, but it has been my experience that you want your HOT pressures between 40-42. I think 40 Cold is too high.

Tire Pressures

What were your tire pressures HOT? Did you take them? Have you checked your Rear Trailing arm Bushings at all? How does your subframe look in the rear where it connects to the chassis?

Engine could be around $5k? But don't quote me. Talk to Dave or Kevin at TMS. As for labor, depends on how much you do yourself.
