Are BMW's such delicate hot house flowers that you can't leave the sunroof open in a rainstorm without selling the car for salvage? I believe the reason the insurance company wrote the car off was the body damage.

Thanks for the heads up on the codes. I did see that bit about the red car on a lift in the owners manual.

Has anyone bought the Bavarian Technic code reader/analyzer? I'm thinking about buying one, but it would be great if a forum member near central Indiana could loan me his/hers.
Check the fuses for the fuel pump. How low did you run the tank? Pump may have failed.

I have a bt cable, its a very good investment, but the enthusiast version really isnt loanable-- its vin locked to a max of three cars. The pro version isnt, but its 2x the cost.
