That wonít allow you to cut inside the hose.

I avoided the roundel for the longest time, because ownership has the opposite effect of clout; usually, ďlook at that DB.Ē Personally, I couldnít care less about brand cache, real or imaginary.

What did you do to your E83 X3 today?

Perhaps ďback-sprayedĒ is a better term. I flushed the air part of the heat exchangers, not the liquid part.

Also pop the mirror out and check for corrosion on the contacts. These things are known for corrosion on the wires. Sometimes a simple cleaning is all it needs.
