Terrible way for a pampered car to go. Engine bay intact? Hope the punks get their day.

If you decide to part it out, I might have a buyer on hand who just blew the HG on his '99 528i.

I can understand the skepticism but to think proprietary additives of different gas brands are exactly the same or gives the same exact results is pretty naive to say the least.

FS: Bridgestone RE960AS 225/55/16

Just changed tires and have the two old tires still good for 5000-10000 miles. Even wear. Selling for $20 each or $30 for both. Good for spares or fill in for flats.

Pickup only.

Not the biggie IMO if it works and looks stock. What happened to the original? How many miles before changing oil? Are those mostly highway miles? I better follow your maintenance schedule!

Many fixes to this same problem. Good thing it's common or we're in trouble.







You're right Bluebee. In my case, it was the module. No more trifecta since! Thanks for the links!
