Yeah the guy who works the parts desk at my local BMW dealership loves me because I always bring him a printed out sheet of part numbers instead of trying to describe what I need.

They're right. Your coolant temp sensor isn't going to keep your car from starting. It might start and not run that great, but it will start. Cars run on air, fuel and spark, so figure out which one...

Oh god... Please post pictures of what this looks like with the windows rolled down if you ever fix the regulators. I'm so glad I have a full stash of good regulators and even windows.

Royal Purple is definitely not worth the cost. It's great oil, but you'd never be able to notice the difference between it and any other quality oil, synthetic or not.

The factory airbox in e34's already is a cold air intake. If you switch to an aftermarket one you will gain anywhere from 0 to -10 HP.

This would be really easy to build, and I would make it compatible with just about any car that uses a headlight relay. If a bunch of people showed some interest I could make these.

What are you referring to? None of the window regulators I've ever worked with had any kind of spring to assist the window's movement.
