Well took in my 645ci for what i thought was a terrible oil leak, turns out not only am I leaking oil, I'm leaking powersteering fluid, transmission fluid and looking at a bill of about $3300.00. After going through the forum and doing some reasearch all the repair seem to be inline for the milage on my vehicle(95k) heres the list please let me know if this is fair pricing?

repairs to be done

both valve cover gaskets
oil sending unit sensor oil filter housing gasket
transmisson pan gasket and rear seal on tranny plus fluid
all three power steering hoses ( this is the one I'm questioning...all three) these are about 1K themselves

I was just about to order my 128 replicas (21") wheels and tires about $2100......still going to screw it! just debating between white or chrome?

also if anybodys looking I will be selling my 22" asanti 128's

Sorry that I'm out of town to help you out. If you can wait a week or two I'll be back in SA and we can take a look at your car and see what it needs.
I'm sure we can save you some bucks.
I'm going from memory here....so
Someone correct me if I'm wrong,
- the "oil filter housing gasket" is the rubber o ring that comes with the new filter. I just did my oil change, nothing else up there.
- both valve cover gaskets should not be a problem, about $215 for parts
- oil sending unit sensor. I don't have ETK or TIS on my laptop so I would have to research this.

- all three power steering hoses, sounds fishy to me, I can't see replacing them as being hard.

-transmisson pan gasket and rear seal on tranny plus fluid, I'm not ready to attempt these. However we can look and see if they are leaking.

I've had questionable information from BMWSA. They have tried to get me for things I didn't need.

If he buys your wheels with no tires I'd be interested in a back tire if they are 295/25/22
