Dino, check out ECS Tuning also and compare total cost including shipping. ECS is in Ohio and Umnitza is in CA so the shipping might be much more for you big parts to where you are. When I replaced the front end on our E46, ECS was the lowest total cost.

It looks to me that they might be switching software, which I hope isn't true. It has the same layout so far as this local forum I'm on: http://www.wibimmers.com/board/

and I do NOT like how the forums looks at all. If BFC switched to this I'll probably spend a lot less time browsing there

Lol. They make more rounded monoblocks, but none of them would fit the W211 lines.


These are the wheels I got for my W140 S600 but never got a chance to put them on.

Dino, are the headlights themselves ok and it is just the glass that broke? If so it might be a lot cheaper just to order new glass lenses and save the headlights.


I am taking a photography course to fulfill my art requirement this semester. This Washday I have to summit 3-5 black and white pictures showing light and value for midterm like grade. I am extremely unartistic and I want some opinions of my work before I summit it. The photo always come out slightly darker in print, so keep that in mind. I am allowed to use Photoshop.

15 minutes of browsing BFC and I agree with a lot of the others; feels like its taken a step back 10 years in terms of appearance. I'll be spending a LOT less time there now..

hell yeah. Thanks man, I have no doubt insurance will cover it. The question is, who's will though.


I'm still not familiar with stuff under the hood yet (opened it like once) but looking inside the the damage, i feel like i saw something disturbing.

Hopefully its just something new to me

I just got done removing my oil pan. Wasn't as hard as some people made it seem like.

Do I need to add RTV?

Did you remove suspension? Or jack the engine up some? Pretty sure rtv is needed.

It absolutely needs rtv. Look up the diy. CJ didn't rtv his where it was supposed to and it leaked. He put rtv on it and all is well.
