The abs pump rarely fails.
How do you know it's really the pump and not the computer or the sensors?

I agree with Bob. You never leave a hot pad in static contact with a hot rotor.

And, if you do get a slight pad imprint which you begin to notice, as soon as you notice it, you get rid of it with...

Why they can't make two alternator shafts the same, I don't know.

So we know more, what was different about the pulley?

Was it the threads? The diameter? The shape?

I would have to think that the bmw engineers knew that a cable could be reversed, and that a diode or something would blow instead of something really expensive.

But I don't really know.

I don't follow the "logic" of "it's an expensive car, therefore all the equipment should be just as expensive". The equipment just has to work.

I wouldn't run an engine with the temp gauge in the red.
If you think it's just a sensor, then I'd look at the dts first.

The ccv hoses are notorious for cracking at the elbow so there is a redesigned ccv hose for the I6 that supposedly solves that problem.

I was wondering how a loose plug ruins threads, but, I guess it works its way loose and then finally blows out taking a few threads with it?

That's a lot, at $100 for just a bluetooth transmitter.
I'm sure it's a nice unit. But I was shocked at the price.
I was thinking more like fifteen bucks.
