Well, I guess I will just take a really hot bath and enjoy a Guiness.
This Memorial day weekend, I helped my friend fix his M3. It needed the dreaded intake manifold gasket replaced; it took about 4 hours. He had received a quote from the BMW dealer for $700. Boy they get away with robbery.
Today, I replaced my o2 sensor and replaced the light blub on the OBC. German engineering is great, but they must have extra long fingers to ge t those damn mounting screws. Replaced the exhaust clamps on the muffler too. Those are some beautiful pieces of metal. Too bad they are so expensive
I even managed to get a fix it ticket for my cracked windshield. Will have to do some research and talk to my insurance guy. It is a pity the damn thing is glued in because the lower valance is rusting out. Will have to talk to the body/window shop to see if it can all be repaired and fixed at the same time or in stages. My German mistress is always draining me dry.
Take care everybody.
Enjoy your hot rods.
Mind your bank balances.
Study hard and do your research.
