Congratulate me!

I made my first "repair" on my 328i. I went through the arduous 10 minute task of replacing a tail light that was cracked when I purchased the car. Cost me $50 for a factory take-off that someone was selling on Ebay.

High Five!

You're on your way to self-sufficiency, free of the evil tyranny of the BMW dealer.

This was obviously about as easy of a repair that is possible on one of these cars but I have to say that I was impressed at how easy it really was. I had to replace a bulb in my wife's mustang a couple years ago and it required at least five times as much effort for the same task. I'm hoping that future repairs are as intuitive.

'Intuitive' is hampered whenever necessary Coding or 'registration' is entailed...then you need equipment and/or software and know-how, too. (Gone are the days when 20 minutes to swap out a battery yourself is all that is needed.)
