    Thanks, Dario. I've always handed over a folder to the buyer with EVERYTHING from my previous vehicles. Goes to show you, there are people who would rather make things difficult, than help you out.

    For sure. The least he could do is make you copies... that's not difficult. What a jerk.

    Ian, unfortunately this is the reality in the world we all live in. Not everyone will make up a folder and keep all receipts for their cars....then turn them over to the next owner....

    It is good to see you're making things right with your car though! Love seeing the progress

    Thanks, Charlie. I'm trying!

    Some good news today:

    I was able to get in touch with someone at Amityville Firestone, where the PO serviced the car twice. They faxed me the invoices.

    One was for an oil change at 99k miles on 5/16/2013, and the Idler Pulley at 102k miles on 8/5/2013.

    The contact info for the PO was on the invoice, so I kindly reached out to her. Lucky enough, she still has the second key for the car, and is sending it to me.

    Look up the manufacturing date on your expansion tank, that should give you an idea. All BMW parts are timestamped in some way.

    Nice! I found my PO and they had an extra full key and a valet! Now I have 3 keys.

    Thanks for this. I didn't realize the expansion tank would have a date/time stamp on it.

    Looks like it's original. 3/16/2006

    Just an update on a couple things I did on the ZHP this weekend. Changed both belts, and the hydraulic tensioner pulley. No more annoying noise on cold start

    I've been busy with my other recent project, my grandpa's '86 Jeep Cherokee, which I just located and bought back from Hawaii. I'm so glad to have it back, and I've begun the restoring process. It was neglected pretty badly over the past 6 years, since I sold it. Maybe I'll make an off-topic thread about it since it's a long story...

    Here it is next to the 330's

    I am also looking for a cherokee. That should have the V6 2.8L though. Two doors are also rare and my favorite. Do an OME Lift :D
