I got my 335i in NV and they only put the temporary license tag in the back and they said they would install the front plate holder when the real tags came in. I don't know where the front plate kit...

Did you do the all mods? All at once or one by one? Maybe the tune and cold air set up is causing a sub-optimal mixture ratio.
I would remove the most likely cause of the power loss (i say the tune,...

Congrats on picking up the 2008 Boxster S.
Our kiddos are still in college and are home now so we still have good use of our 335i space; the sunroof helps me minimize not cooking my hair and head.

My guess is BMW did not want owners to change the coolant the easy way.
Maybe their idea of a drain is wherever it pops a leak.
When I DIY'd the oil cooler gasket, I remember disconnecting a small...

If I had 2 additional leaking injectors I would change all of them though I would prefer a new non OEM/OEM brand over a rebuilt one.

Is the coolant level lower than the minimum line? If not, it's probably a bad coolant sensor.
