For those of you wishing to freshen up on your BMW's maintenance costs:
Vehicle: 1999 BMW E46 328i
Mileage: 98,000 mi
Inspection I service upfront costs: ~$410
What they did exactly, I don't know, and at this point it's not important, here is what they found (prices are estimated):
Oil Light Sensor busted, $352.60
Passanger Light Low Beam bulb busted, $61.85 (that's for one friggin bulb, non HID)
Brake Fluid Flush, $123.05
Coolant Flush, $133.75
Control Arm Bushings cracked, $593.64 (again)
Shock Mount, $324.51
Shock, pair, $627.29
Front Brakes, $594.48
Transmission Failure, $?,???.??
SOOO, not counting the tranny, but including the service charge, here is what this fucking piece of shit BMW will cost me:
What I allowed them to do, coolant flush. And that's it. The control arm bushings are covered under the Inspection II warranty when they did it then. And well, everything else I can either do my self or at this point it's not important. Plus I just don't give a fuck about this piece of shit BMW any more.
