Well, I suppose some invite smart replies, but its pretty rare. Sometimes a really funny, tongue-in-cheek remark will seem really weird when posted on the board.
We all take spells of having time to muse about our cars. Fortunately, there is usually someone tuning in who has an answer.
I also note that there are a few who buy a 750 or whatever and ask unanswerable questions ("there is green stuff running everywhere, what should I do!!!??"), and who suddenly become experts, offering (usually bad) advice just a few days later.
But I appreciate anyone who has the expertise who takes the time to offer help and opinions. None of my advice comes with a warranty. I couldn't afford it.
Anyway, best wishes to all and a Happy New Year.
Why don't you ask David R. Shelvey.....he would appear to be the all-knowing BMW God. He might be somewhat of a snob with his comment on the woodgrain fix and his idiotic use of the term "American" (which America are you refering to...South America, North America, Or Central America? But anyway, it is obvious that he is ready, willing, and waiting to answer your questions. If he cannot, then by all means ask "Rodsky". OBTW.....All Euros should put a big "A" when typing America. Have a nice day;)
My thermostat seems to be fried on my 750. Engine doesnt come up to temp now that its 0 f. here.
My question is, does the fan have to come off to change the thermostat or can it be done with the fan in place? And, is there anything special I should know about before I attempt this?
