Nope, that part number is for the whole light fixture, #5 in this diagram.

Positive for kylefav390

Kyle (kylefav390) was great to do business with. Responded to emails/PMs even though he was extremely busy. Great packing job of springs/shocks/spindles/struts, shipped for an amazingly low cost considering the size of the package and tremendous weight. The only negative is that his UPS store and my...

Re: '84 633CSi / Manual / $1300

Honestly, I'm trying to figure out how to get my wife to agree to this. The fly in the ointment is that I'm buying another E30 today (Wednesday) and she wasn't to happy about that. [-X

That's even better than the crimp-on brass connector I was referring to.

Re: Coil Wire - Spark Plugs

Poke around in the boot. You should find a crimp-on brass connector that you put on the wire after you cut it to length. Shove the wire with connector into the post and then push the boot over it.

Re: E34 540i Brake Upgrade

Push 20 times with the engine off. With the engine running it won't discharge the pressure in the brake bomb and won't prove anything.

I'll guess it was shot on an iPhone. Common problem, and I don't know how to correct it. I've even downloaded and flipped pictures like that, and when reposted they were STILL upside down. Let's see if it worked this time: NOPE.

Congrats Bobbo! You won't have any trouble finding something to do. Like my father-in-law said after he'd been retired a few months "I don't know how I ever found time to go to work!".

Take the exhaust off. Yes, it's a PITA to do, but it makes the head removal less hernia-inducing.

To the contrary, you had no idea, and it's good to think of our friends that have passed on from time to time. Dean was a very active member, and a friend. We all miss him.

If you can find one that the clear plastic hasn't turned yellow and brittle it will be something of a miracle. Good luck.

Re: Expansion tank level going up...

The electric fan is supposed to come on when the coolant reaches a certain (REALLY HIGH) temperature, but normally it runs only when the A/C is on.

Re: OBC Questions

Thank you for that link! I'm going to be the guinea pig. I ordered a repair kit for one of the small OBCs (in my E30). If it works (in other words, if I don't screw it up) I'll get one for the OBC in my 633. Amazingly, the OBC in my far more abused 635 still works!

Re: Good things begin on Jan. 12, 2009!!

I was being semi-factious, but everything I've seen/read/heard about California is that it's a wonderful place to live (albeit VERY expensive), but has some of the most ridiculous regulations about cars and modifying them. Your idea of turboing is a prime example. When done correctly it would vastly...

Move to a state that doesn't think it needs to be a nanny to you on everything you do. It'd be easier to list what California DOESN'T regulate than what it does.
