I couldn't agree more. You may indeed need brake pads but if you don't inspect them you will never know. I know I don't like to buy and install parts unnecessarily but if you've got the money to burn...

No need to change all of the injectors as long as they are replaced with the same ones that are in there now. I will say though that it is awfully strange that 2 injectors failed at the same time. Is...

You are going to have to run a recalibration on the throttle valve potentiometers. You are either going to have to find a dealer or a good BMW indy shop to do this. Hopefully that will take care of...

Fuse 92 is in the rear by the rear fuse panel. It is not a normal fuse and that is probably why it is not listed. You can not put power and ground to the fan and expect it to work as the fan also...

I highly doubt that you have a temp sensor issue, if you did you should have codes stored for it. Don't go blindly swapping parts as it is just going to cost you more in the long run. A coming fan...

I must be getting old. I love the look, that's one sharp ride indeed. I wouldn't want to ride in it though. I'm sure it rides ok for what has been done to it but I just can't imagine taking a 6 hour...

I am a licensed CA smog tech. Not having a muffler will not cause you to fail the smog check being that the muffler is not an emission control device
