    Don't mind me as a spend a day cleaning. Tried to work on a little drip inside after heavy rain. Right side where hardtop first panel meets with windshield's rubber. Added some sticky stuff we use in the doors to maintain moisture barrier.

    At 55,400 miles:

    Changed cabin air filter (broke a tab, it's cold out tonight).

    Changed engine air filter and cleaned MAF. Fixed a tab on the air duct around the hood latch.

    Moved the 2 door strikers in, about 1.5-2 mm on each side, as the doors when not perfectly aligned with the back quarter panels and sticking out a bit.

    Working on a leak at the a pillar meeting the roof panel passenger side with butyl tape. Might have to take the liner out on the front most roof panel to investigate if leak continues.

    Got Carmax to agree with me that the car has a whine. They are changing the alternator and the power steering pump for free next week.

    Would love a new belt and a belt tensioner while they are in there. If whining continues....

    Bit of info: used the OBC to read code 7 and at operating temperature, car is reading 95 oC. Close to the e46 values.

    Still at 55K miles, Carmax replaced the alternator and power steering pump and the whine is gone! I can now hear engine below 2500 rpm! My mpg are taking a dip.

    Told Carmax that there was a coolant leak around the driver side front, near radiator. So they replaced the radiator while they were in there because there was apparently a crack. Figured that is a bit premature. I changed the first radiator on my E46 at 110K miles.

    I have a feeling that tightening the the car doors may have actually "fixed" the water leak at the A pillar. Time will tell, and a good rain.

    Carmax experience has been very positive and sweet. As documented earlier, they took my Audi A6 at 2K over what Audi of Lexington wanted to pay for. So they give you a good price on your vehicle as a return customer. Then sure, I paid nearly $1500 more than I could have purchased this vehicle for, HAD IT BEEN available in the private sector. But then, they drove me to work and picked me up 3 times, changed 3 expensive items on the car and realigned my bumper . . . for free! That is sweet I think.

    And there maybe more. As I was leaving, the person in charge of listening to my complaints said :" here is my card, call if you need anything or something isn't right".

    And I take pictures

    Here is video on the N52 engine. The one that replaced our M54.

    I hear it is tunable relatively easily to deliver another 30 hp with a 330i intake for ~2000K in parts.

    Damn that's a great CarMax experience. Good on them for supporting the sale.

    Thatís excellent customer support.

    Is the warranty something you paid extra for or is it included with all the cars CarMax sells?
