Hmm, quite the old thread here, but I wanted to add this: Thank you previous owner for being such a total loser non-mechanical douche bag licker. Due to your inability to fix, repair or maintain a vehicle, I bought your car for dirt cheap, and fixed what you thought was a blown head (bad plugs), slipping tranny (controller wires bad), burned out top motors ( need S1 and S2 adjusted) and a raft of other nickle and dime problems for less than $300. USD. The money I saved will pay for the paint job that the Florida sun and Love Bugs devoured, for which there is no protection.

I find kinship with this thread... There is a Previous Owner that is really making me consider ditching my clearance just to see the guy's house burn down.

The only knock for my PO is actually the shop(s) he took the car too. He had the battery replaced and the dumbssa's didn't clean up the acid that leaked which when I did the motor swap and removed the battery I noticed the acid ate through the battery tray
Also Best Buy installed new speakers for him and had the wiring alllll messed up, wouldn't fade etc so I had to rewire every speaker in the car. Still in process of putting in new battery tray when I get time.

Where are you in FLA? I'm in Orlando......

I'd have to say thank you instead of F0ck you to my POs. They took reasonably good care of the car save never changing the auto tranny fluid, but I have to put that at BMWs feet for calling it "Lifetime Fluid".

lets see.......

bent trunk latch, how in the F do you bend that?
SHOT struts, bad enough to change lanes by itsself when you hit a bump
missing tools
bad water pump (hence why i got it cheap. read FREE!!!)
tweaked regulator on the drivers window. window was taped up.
stock plugs. maybe a dealer replacement but they were stamped BMW when i pulled em 3 months ago.
no stereo but the adapter for an aftermarket unit was there
fogged lights
only one fog light
sunroof wont always tilt
dent on pass fender where his drift wheels fell on it
and the car was 2\3 brilliant PINK.

oh almost forgot..... pulled the seats to detail, found 1\2 inch deep pile of MAGGOT carcasses next to teh seat rail. thats just nasty.

I'm over by St. Augustine. Like you, I found no overt abuseor reasons to bash th PO, just a case of a used care that was was not owned by a DIY person, which actually benefited me.

Long time creeper, made an account to give my PO a shout out.
Thanks for switching my tranny to manual from auto.
But a big bag of f**k you for not even knowing how to drive stick, 4TH gear grinds when going in unless I get rpms over 4000. DA FU*CK PO.
And it has only begun.


....But I'm no mechanic so maybe it;s something simple..

One thing that strikes me when reading this thread, why didn't everyone complaining just pony up more $$$ and buy a better car in the first place?
