Fuel Pump Replaced

The fuel pump was replaced in my z4...it took them 2 days because it was the first time they had done this, and they had to strip the car. But the engine still makes a tapping doing on tickover...any thoughts?

Apparently for me anyway..they filled up the tank afterwards (not for free!) and they tested it to see if it would leak as they had taken out the fuel tank during disassembly

Small leak in driver side seals, fuel pump replaced, water in rear lights, awful rattling noises.

I would wait a while, or get a very recent model where hopefully the problems have been sorted out. And get one with sport leather seats with lumbar support, in my opinion you need it. That's what I miss.

The 23i is a great engine and quick, but the new 28i will be worth a look. Alot of people say they won't like it, but I think it will be a cracking engine, very quick and will probably have a good sound as well
