no such luck that cap and rotor only fit the S-14 motor and none others.why you think its so expensive ! proprietary parts ,gotta love bmw/bosch

well i finished my car last night at 3:30 am to get it ready for the auto-x that was being held today. try and start it up "just to make sure" and the car would crank like crazy but wouldn't fire. so after going to the 24hour gas station to get some gas, i tried again. no luck.

so i pulled the cap off, and saw that the tip of my cap had MELTED to the inside wall of the cap!

and of course now i need a new cap and rotor (everybody should carry a spare set of these, i know i will now) and none of the autostores carry one for the M3, all they say is "oh, ah that's a dealer item only," whatever.

now i heard that a certian volvo cap and rotor fit? yes?no?
is it the 240 like the valve shims?
thanks guys
Eric
