I bought one from Griot's Garage. Works nicely, but you should check on the draw on the battery. Mine works fine with the 335d, but the Forester I have doesn't put out quite enough juice. It's...

I was in Wyoming about 100 miles from the nearest town with a decent tire shop this summer when my right rear gave up the ghost. Fifty-three miles from any town. I tried slime first; no dice. Then...

Road trips are wonderful in the 335d. I have taken two very long ones: 6,500 miles and about 3,000. I had all those tire rescue items plus a 12v air compressor. Post some pics and a trip report. ...

I would guess it would be hard for the body shop to miss those filler ports when doing the work. That sort of thing is at minimum unethical; whether it becomes fraud or not I wouldn't know.
