no lights, no issues, worst part is how heavy the seat is to remove. Otherwise, like everything else on the car, assembly/disassembly is very straight forward.

I enjoy my 750 but these posts are getting ridiculous. Injectors, timing chains, valve seals? Seriously WTF BMW?! You really expect me to want to upgrade when you have problems like this?

I lol'd. But seriously check the ccvs and hoses. Did the mech change all seals? My car stopped smoking immediately after I completed mine.

for the time and hassle to build your own box, I'd say find a coder or Indy that will do it for you. 10 minutes with Progman is all it takes.

that would be a temporary solution - this is a closed system, if you are low on oil, it's leaking somewhere. I'm lucky mine leaked but didn't take out any electronics with it.
