On the other hand when I installed my struts & springs I damaged 1 of the speed sensors. There was no way of telling which one it was, so I bit the BULLET & brought it to a bmw dealer shop just to get a diagnosis, they charged me 1 hour labor, which was $125.00 & told me that the left front speed sensor was not working. They wanted to do the job for $350.00. I DECLINED, paid the $125.00 & bought the sensor on-line for about $80.00 bucks & did it myself. So you have some options!!!
I hear ya. I visit all those forums daily plus http://www.318ti.org
- You and I think along the same lines. When I first bought the car in Nov '07 the first thing I did was take it to a Indie BMW/Mini shop in my town. I had them do the Inspection II and give me a list of repairs they wanted to make. I told them I wanted it like new. They came back at me with $2400 worth of repairs. I now have a list of things to do! Motor mount, RSMs, control arms, etc. No one can love your car as much as you. Besides, I don't have a disposable income. Thanks for the support! I'll let you all know how this turns out.
I've cleaned MAF and ICV. Next move is to replace the fuel filter on Saturday. I'll be sure to let you know the outcome.
