There is a hot and cold level on the label. The tank is under it's highest pressure during these hot summers and I always err on the side of caution when adding coolant. You can always add a small...

The coolant level is too high in the picture, look at the label on the plastic nect to the cap. I think that you need to bleed again, heat on and fan at the lowest speed. Is your car an automatic? If...

I have tried helicoil once and found that it's essentially just wire but I was impressed with timesert. In the end, I just rethreaded to the next bolt size up and it made me more confident in the fix.

You're crying about a lost grill when you have those headlights and a nun painted M3 rep bumper? Your priorities are out of whack.

Have you tried using a product made to clean alloy wheels? It may make quite a difference and much cheaper than refinishing them.

Serves you right for putting an M3 bumper on a 325. But, if you do a little homework you'll find that the 2001 bracket should work just fine. I imagine that M3 fender vents and Style 67's are next.

There is a recall on the grounds in the bulb carriers. Pull the carrier out and see if the ground wire is corroded. I reconnected both sides and fixed the problem.

The recall was for 2002 and later models. I have a 2001 which suffered the bad ground issue and it took me under 30 minutes to DIY. Use the search mode and learn about the "tail light ground issue".

The car on the left is asking for someone to mess with it. Not only did they disregard any parking space marking, they overshot the end of the aisle badly.
