    Included for first 3 months of ownership I think with all Carmax purchases.

    Made a stencil, cut my own sticky CF tape. Free mod .

    Now I need to get rid of the yolk in my side blinkers.

    I removed my belt today because I still hear a a bit of a whine that I think should not be there if a BMW sounds like a BMW, or an M54 sounds like an N52.

    Sure enough, the idler pulley spins freely.

    So I will mention it to Carmax next time I go in to have them check the roof leaks. Might as well tell them about that before I start fixing the butyl tape myself.

    More later.

    That's a very creative solution for the side blinker bulb.

    What a great day over here in the 60's, got to enjoy some nice top down sunny-side driving!

    Appreciate how the engineers at BMW designed the car so that it changes the dynamics of the stereo and the air flow around the cabin when you drop the top! It's like you are driving in a cocoon of soft air, a cascade of warm air rolling off the top of the dash. You have to put the heat system on AUTO and it takes care of the flow of air to limit turbulences trying to run back into the cabin. It's brilliant with all the windows up, it's an awesome feeling! And the audio sound also plays with the speed and makes driving the car in this weather with top open, an absolute pleasure.

    Can't wait to next weekend!

    Guess the Carmax folks went for the most expensive fix on the whine in the car. Sure changing the alternator and the power steering pump was a great idea (from my angle), but guess what sits right between the 2?

    Yes, the idler pulley!

    Bought one (URO, $20 shipped), put it in (15 minute job) with new bolt torqued at 36 Lbs/inch (should be 30 but that seemed light) and now ALL the whine is completely gone.

    All engine now, no pulleys.

    And yes, that pulley was free spinning a lot.

    All that at 55,550 miles.
