Hey Solstice,

Yup, MV is the tech foreman I've been working with. By any chance, were you the one that picked up the dark grey 550i back in August?

So here's the latest update, the part didn't come in today. I'm guessing that this is a growing issue and everyone's trying to order the same replacement part. They told me it's looking like a 6-7 day wait time to get the part, install it, and test things out. They said I could come in and take my car back in the meantime but it's been kind of fun driving around the 335i with x-drive. It's a smaller cabin but the AWD is kind of fun.

I'll continue to provide updates as they become available. Good luck everyone!
