    Martlet The Gray 330i ZHP

    I am adding a new member to my BMW stable:
    Welcome the Martlet, a 330i ZHP sedan with 109,000 miles on the clock.
    Some appearance flaws that need addressing:

    1) Bumper Alignment
    2) Driver's Side Black Plastic Molding Alignment

    Wouldn't be a project without some issues and outstanding maintenance. The car came with nothing more than a title, so in the coming weeks I will be addressing some of the maintenance items:

    1) Oil Change + Filter
    2) Wheel Alignment
    3) Rear Shocks
    4) Shot AC [Fixed with a simple R134A Recharge]
    5) Check mounts and bushings
    6) Exhaust leak (Where is the most common place?)
    7) ABS/Yellow Brake Light (Sensors?)

    Some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

    Looks great. Silbergrau is such a great color with the sedan's black trim.

    Well, Firestone just took a shit on one of their best customers and handed me a worthless excuse that they cannot align my car because they do not have a "special tool."
    I call a load of crap on that because they did align my two other bimmers. Which leads me to beg the question: How badly can a corporation like Firestone and its parent company - Bridgestone need warm bodies that they seem to get just about anyone with a warm body and a pulse to work on a car?
    Some clueless techs aside, this did lead me to order new suspension for the Martlet with adjustable camber plates and various height adjustments.

    I will be taking my car to get corner balanced and aligned at a shop that doesn't make baseless excuses.

    I've asked the firestone here twice about doing alignment. They said they can't... I know others on here that have the lifetime alignment from them. Really odd.
