Absolutely. Makes me more optimistic about my '03 2.5i with about half as many miles.

Let us know what you've done to the car, i.e., issues, maintenance routines, etc.
Thanks.

Did he replace the valve cover gasket for that price or just tightened the bolts? The parts alone are ~ $60.

Why not the dealer if insurance is paying? I live about half an hour north of you and have had good experience with Circle BMW in Eatontown. How did you get the insurance to agree to pay?

Mine sounds basically similar but with much less of that last couple of second of buzzing. Do you actually feel the top vibrate during the buzzing or it's just noise?

I'm not very familiar with '04 3.0L but I thought the Sport package had bigger and staggered size wheels and tires. Those look more like the standard size.
