It's yours if you cover shipping.
Alex was very kind to ship the license plate. Great transaction and great communication. Alex even posted the pic of the parcel.

Thank you Alex!

anyone have a spare 2.5L head laying around, looks like I've got a burnt exhaust valve. the previous owner had the wrong plugs installed and #2 melted at the tip and is probably stuck in my exhaust valve

Recently changed plugs on my 04, mechanic said it showed slight oil and I would be due soon for the gasket change... If no one else has an immediate need I'd gladly put it to use in the next couple of months.

I'll give up an extra i just got in hand as well, if someone needs it and is willing to pay shipping (only because of its odd size).

Driver side front fender flare (off 2004), probably 8/10 due to some nicks from normal wear.

I also have a 2.5 badge if someone needs that, will ship for free of course.

Hi All!

I am new to this forum and BMWs, but thankfully as I was doing some research I found the thread on Left Rear Window, and I just saved myself a whole $400. Yaayy....

In keeping with the thread, I could really use tires for my X3. Its a 2005, and used is welcome. I am in NJ

San Francisco Bay Area -- Six Spark Plugs for 2004-2006

Hello All,

I have a six NGK Laser Platinum BKR6EQUIP 3199 that I waited too long to return. These will only work with the M54 engine, X3's from 2004-2006 which isn't in my 2007 X3.

Link: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...595&highlight=

I'd prefer to not have to send them, a local pickup in San Francisco is prefered.

PM me if you can use them.

Thanks,
Mike

Free brand-new K&N 33-2078 Replacement Air Filter to the first PM I get. Ok, the filter will not fit the X3...but some of you may have another BMW vehicle and it may fit....I bought the wrong K&N filter online and don't want the trouble of paying to ship it back and pay to get it shipped back to me--so you will benefit from my boo boo...I will also include FREE SHIPPING!. Here's a list of vehicles this air filter will fit: http://www.knfilters.com/search/appl...x?prod=33-2078


If no takers, I'll post same over the 1988-1995 BMW forums.

Mein Auto: Z4 3.0i (sold the X3)
For Shipping: used Headlght switch with front and rear fog light switches. Just pay shipping (should fit in flat rate box)

2007-2010 (LCI models only (New taillights))

This switch is from ECSTuning, not sure they even offer them for sale anymore.

It allows the use of the rear fog lights and also has a green LED to inform you of when the head lights are on when set to automatic. Also does really well at getting tail-gaters off of your bumper : - )

This switch was a Xenon/Auto windshield wiper model. I was using it on my non-xenon/auto wiper model, without issues.

It works great. The switch is mounted in a right hand drive surround and with a torex bit the switch can be removed and put in your left hand surround. After that it is just plug-and-play. I used a credit card to remove the existing switch surround. Less than 15 minute job.

I'm interested.

Just want to clarify: I have xenons, and I assume it'll work with them. I searched this forum and it looks like ECS offered a xenon and a non-xenon version of the switch. Sounds like you're offering the xenon version?

I'll PM you.

Thanks for keeping this Pay It Forward going!

Do you have an E83 x3 w/ beige interior withOUT folding mirrors...and an ugly drivers side window switch?

Well my wife has an X3 that i am freshening here and there and I ordered the wrong window switch cover (her car does have folding mirrors).

As I was replacing the cover I somehow didnt realize my mistake until I had the new (wrong) window switch cover halfway on ugh. So the clip area on the bottom of the switch is a little scuffed from coercing it back off (see pic). It will still install just fine and the visible part is still perfect

Not really worth the trouble of selling it so first person to PM me for it can have it for cost of shipping (maybe $5 usps - I'll let the person know actual shipping once its sent so they can paypal-gift me).

any takers? Here is part info:
