    Hi everyone, I've been using this forum as a primary resource for some time for ideas about my 2006 BMW X3. Now I need some help. Over the last month, my X3 has overheated a few times, while stuck in low traffic. My mechanic seems a bit lost as to what is happening. To date, we've have...

    Hello all! I have a 2006 330i with 100100 miles. I recently took it to get my spark plugs changed (I know I could have done it myself) because I have never worked on my cars in the past before.

    My mechanic swears that there is not such thing as brand new water pump when it comes to replacing old one; that the only way to get brand new on is with a new car. He swears that even BWM dealership would install a 'remanufactured' water pump. Yet, his price for that 'new?' 'remanufactured'...
