I'm crossposting this because it speaks to the value of these forums. :thumbup:

Prop responded to my cloudy headlight problem on a '99 540iAT with 85k miles. Sold me his slightly used lenses very reasonably with assurances of my being able to complete the project. All went as advertised until I boogerred it up and broke an internal adjustment plastic piece. I'd resigned myself to a MAJOR headlamp replacement expense but wrote Prop and explained the problem. He knew all about it, complete with BMW part number which two local dealers could not find prior to Prop's info. Got the part in one day from BMW, $15. Fixed it perfectly with no problems and the car looks great. This is the beauty of the internet and the value in forums like this. I truly believe that for many run of the mill issues the collective wisdom of the board is higher than that of the dealers. Mine (the dealers) were all clueless. Thanks Propellerhead. :thumbup:

Congrats John. Sounds to me like Prop deserves some of that famous Wisconsin cheese. TD showed me how to change my oil (I'd never done it before) for the first time. This really is an invaluable forum.
