Problem solved, they simply had installed the wrong adaptor initially.

It works now, and I'm happy with the results. The only hassle was having to go once more.

After paying the $320, I go to my car,...

Heh, I just checked my mail, and there was the check, which arrived today! :)

I feel a bit dumb now, having sent another application. Oh well, like I said, they can just ignore that one.

I'll 2nd the suggestion that you make 2x the value of the car.

So, the $80-100K range sounds reasonable. I fit in the middle, $90K a year, single, no debts other than the mortgage on my house.

Wow, congrats on the M!

Looking at the very first pic, the M3 looks bigger, beefier, just more muscular. The 330 looks so plain next to it!

Yeah, but it wasn't, of course. The car gets confused on the dyno, and all the lights come on (brake, abs, etc). Once back on 4 wheels, it was normal again.
