Ouch! Big money. Like Brandon suggested, find an independent shop. Do you know of any in Vancouver? If not, I can try to help you find one. One comes to mind. Try AMG located around Broadway and Cambie. I've been there and they look like a real enthusiast's shop. I don't know what their rates are like but they work on lots of nice cars. I think that at least they'd be familiar with the E30 M3.

Good luck!

I took my car to BMW today and they told me that the hesitation and poor gas mileage was caused by worn intake gaskets. The gaskets run about 165 each with 3 hours labor as well I need new alternator bushings. Total cost before tax will be about $900.00.

This is less than 3 weeks after I just spent $1600 on an Inspection II and having an oil leak fixed.

Ah well, this car is still too much fun for me to give up but the repair bill is sure getting up there.
