    Don't buy BMW for the oil level sensor. It's the exact same part as the Hella unit, with the BMW logo ground off. Save yourself $70 and get the Hella.

    Alternatively, I'd get it through FCP Euro since they have a lifetime warranty on their parts:

    Well I mean stock vs. stock. If you're doing all those mods to get it to feel right, you could mod the E46 as well and they would both feel great lol Other than that, the BRZ is a nice little car to play around with. I had this customer that came to me to do some lighting stuff. The car was modded ugly as hell lol But I did a few things that I guess hasn't been done on the forums yet which sucked cause I had to think lol Like making the DRL fog things stay on all the time (now I see that there is an easy way to do that). Then did those Diode Dynamics turn signal boomerang things (which I ended taking back off, long story). I think I installed like a Greddy ti-c exhaust and stuff. That car has so much space to work on things. Just hated taking off the bumper to do lighting stuff.
    The BRZ is a Great little car when you are pushing 225HP at the rear wheels I did a whole sound deadening mat project to the car and have the entire interior stripped out except the driver's seat and drove around like this for a week or two. Probably removed a few hundred pounds from an already pretty light weight car. Was a blast and the poor prius tires suffered dearly. Went through 3 sets of the OE tire in 36,000 miles. Guys who would buy new wheels or tires would sell the stock ones for ~$25 a tire! would buy a set and ruin them in 12,000 miles lol

    Curves, I swear your car is like 1 or 2 years ahead of mine in terms of what is going to break and the new parts going in lol. never heard of the oil sensor failing until now! FCPEuro seems like a good deal and no one car argue a lifetime warranty. Not all parts that come new are of quality as my DISA valve goes to show. Speaking of, need to get that replaced

    personally, i would not buy the radium engineering can. they use what appears to be a dish scrubber for baffling - pass. what if a piece of that broke loose? you don't want that going into your engine. kaboom.

    200 - 300 ml of oil for 50 miles of driving would be considered excessive consumption right? I have had to add about that much for the past two days after the work commute.
