so i got my car back tonight.
I ended up buying the control arms...cause otherwise there was a 10% restocking fee. They came from ohio.
So..for $950 I got(which...was a lot less then i thought it was going to be.)
-new electric thermostat installed
-new upper coolant hose installed
-new metal impellar water pump installed
-new Control arm Bushings installed
-two control arms not installed but they are mine. I think ill install them
-clock was reset for daylight savings time
boo yah. Not half bad seeing how all the parts were great quality. He also showed me all the old parts. The old water pump wa a plastic impellar and corroded like none other. CABs were visually worn.
New CABs drive like a dream..comapred to the old ones. Now its time for the control arms..which i can get installed for $75 or just do them myself.
Just need an alignment
But still...fuck..no more money. But fixed up Bimmer.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
