    Changed the valve cover gasket on my 330xi automatic. FINALLY… A straightforward, easy-access job without tragic surprises!

    I paid $3,200 last year to have my bumper cover, hood, roof, and trunk painted by an expert. The rest of my car's paint is excellent, mileage is quite low, and there's no rust anywhere. So, it was...

    Between rampant inflation, in general, and the fact our cars are becoming rarer over time, I’m not optimistic prices will ever go down. I’m in the same boat… If I hadn’t picked up my car when I did,...

    I wouldn't consider taking less than $30k for my car but, even if I could get that, why would I? Nothing else even comes close to matching it, overall.

    I bought a full-front splitter over a year ago (substantially discounted), but then I had my car painted (including the bumper cover), and now I just canít bring myself to drill into it.

    Repaired two dime-sized windshield dings on each of my 330xi’s using “Blue Star” windshield repair kits. The results were very good, and application was simple. I tried to repair a windshield a...

    Huh… I just had my CSB bearing replaced, which fixed a heavy, low-speed vibration, but I now have a minor, higher-speed vibration. My mechanic thought it might dissipate with a little driving. Any...

    I had intended to replace my glossy grilles with the same, but I only had matte on hand when I got my car repainted, so I used them and really like it--provides a nice bit of contrast with the paint...

    I don't recommend it, but I actually did manage to pop it out of place, remove it, and reinstall it without removing the bumper cover with much bending and finagling. If I had to do it all over...

    It wasn’t the scale of response that sold me (about which I agree), it was the apparently quicker, seemingly instantaneous reaction of the valve to WOT. In addition, there was at least one fairly...

    Against my better judgment, I bought a Sprint Booster v.3 last fall, because the throttle response on my ZHP, unlike my 330xiís, has always seemed slow. Installed it today, and I must say Iím...

    Makes me wonder when somebody goes to the trouble and expense of installing a supercharger and, then, up and sells the car shortly thereafter—without reassurances about drivability or reliability.
