I am totally support DIY, last DIY on my X3 was the sun roof tilt problem. Thanks to this forum member's instruction. It probably saved over a thousand bucks.

I have no idea spark plug and break flush can be so cheap. I did both with this time repair. spark plug cost over 400 at dealer, and the break flush cost me 128 at an indy shop.

While lessons learned, where did you find all this instructions? "sticky it forward" in this forum?
I found a nice starting point was I've bought some things from them, but mostly they have a lot of DIY videos that are pretty nice.

Additionally, I've found a lot of good stuff on youtube.
