Sorry, most everything is gone by way of a donation and the curb.
Still have the Red-Line and the steering wheel.
Red-Line is DX4 I believe. Will look when I get home tonight.

Las Vegas NV, clearing out parts

Hi All,
I traded my 2000 328ci a while ago (for a 2013 X1) and have a slew of parts.
Will let them go as "Take them All".
Price? Make an offer, otherwise I'm donating them to The Salvation Army....

I replaced mine a couple weeks after I got the X1 (a year ago) with 6000K halogen lamps. Looks great, matches the HID headlights perfectly.

Does anyone know if the option to display the actual tire pressure (instead of fine-not fine) is available?

If they're available in your area, you may want to look at Koni FSDs. Stiff on cornering and nice on potholes/road objects.
The FSD stands for Frequency Specific Dampening, and they work well. Been...

I sit corrected having my gazzilionith coffee:-). But I stand by braised instead of braided. Especially with garlic and minced thyme. :D

Shad, I believe that's a canoodler valve you're recommending. Since you're messing with the OP, might as well use correct spelling. And try the braised instead of the braided. You'll have a much...

I've always just used a sewing needle and inserted it into the nozzle from the outside. It's also a handy tool for re-aiming the nozzle jets.

Sounds like it could also be the EWS unit gone bad. I hope not as that requires a tow to the dealer for replacement and recoding. Basically if the EWS goes out, your car no longer recognises your...

I'll just say that if there's full power all around, the key turns and the starter just does nothing, then it could be the ECW unit. When they fail, your car goes into lockout mode and will not...
