Don't be....just do it! BMW videos are very instructive.

At this point we must stop; evaluate.

Exactly how many beers would $150 score? Yo! I got one word here: Growler

Got to love them Cleveland prices. But, unfortunately, the pay back might be this chuckholed roads.

Hello,

My name is Brandon and I am one of the owners at Smokey's.

First off I want to apologize for the length of time it took someone to get back to you. I understand you have gone to another shop and I understand your reasoning. I just wanted to send you this to explain the situation. We let a salesman go last week but failed to update our answering service. This caused your messages to be put in his voicemail box which no one was checking. After seeing your comments on Facebook we were trying to figure out who you were and who you spoke with. Upon listening to his messages we realized we had dropped the ball on getting back to you and 2 other customers. It was an honest mistake and was nothing personal towards you. Sorry for the inconvenience and best of luck to you and your future modification of your 335.

Did you do the JB4 install yet? I did mine and had two of the smaller harnesses swapped around somehow. Tried to start the car and every light turned on the dashboard and it wouldn't start. HEART ATTACK! Rewatched the videos and figured it out. Worse case scenario is that you remove it and start over. You can do it.
