Good luck,

We did swap a nearly-new (only a thousand miles and in a car running perfectly) AFM in on the way home last year and it didn't make any difference.

I have considered sending the AFM to Programa along with the ECU to be reflowed/etc. though...

Intermittent Shutoff issues

Greetings gents - I haven't been here in a while, and I'm embarrassed that a problem brings me back. I have an '86 M635 (9/85 build) that is having a strange problem that nobody seems to have nailed yet. I've got some experiments in the works (e.g. loaner stuff on the way), but thought I'd post here...

Rob was at the last SouthEast Sharkfest, and I really enjoyed his company. I just finished his book, too, which was worth several laughing outbursts and more than a few "You said it brother!"occasions.
