I recommend using denser blinker fluid.

Must be one of those ultra-rare 2.5L M3s which were sold only in Alabama?

While I appreciate you being concise, there is a TON of info missing in your post.

Any errors in this post are purely Swype's fault, not mine.

Mein Auto: BMW 328i
Hey, its fine hehe My sons car is a 325 that LOOKS (and has all m3 parts besides drivetrain) like a M3...It would be (IMHO) dangerous and stupid of me to give him a M3 for a first car! Though a LOT of parents do just that (or worse)!!
So I guess it was ASSUMED (being from Bama and all) I actually bought (and paid M3) $ for his car...Naah..Its beautiful tho, seats and interior are as new (unlike mine, unfortunately!

So I am also trying to figure out to see if there is a good way to REASONABLY repair the Vaders, or just put lighter SParco's etc in (No $ for Recaro's, and I'm not trying to impress, just enjoy driving), as I drive P/u the rest of the time. Ones an upreved Frontier, tho, and the other a 850 lb ft 96 Dodge/Cummings , so not too terrible...

Was kinda hoping for a list (based on others experience with their vehicles with similar mileage and use...Oh well, what do you expect for free...hehe
