And tell him to toss it in the back seat. ;)

Just wondering, will BMW allow you to keep the rotted out block when they replace it with the new one? I would like to have it to sit next to my old fried slushbox in the garage. I don't know why, I just feel better having broken parts in my garage, like the rad. fan missing 5 blades from a mountain dew bottle at approx 120 mph, the cracked and rotted belts from 3 different bimmers, plus window switches that failed in my 250,000k 1983 533i over 5 years ago.

Oh lord, My family is right. I'm one sick puppy.

I gotta go and get some counseling. The parts counter at BMW is open another hour and a half, only they can help my terminal condition.
