: : dave, if you don't have a spark plug socket in your tool kit, do you know how much that socket costs? how about machined spacers for those new wheels? How many miles on your car? Is it time for that $$ timing chain?
: : BMW parts are expensive. i wouldn't use any aftermarket. Even 2002 parts can be pricey. Maybe you should rethink what you've just purchased.
