    Oops

    So, had to get a service done on the ol' 335i.

    Took off what I had in, but left the procede in the trunk and don't think I replaced the battery cover. Haha, was worried the tech would know what he was looking at and I would get a "warning" or something.

    They still replaced the HPFP under recall, even though its US model in Germany. Not too shabby if you ask me.

    Although, the $228 euro total was rough. I should have bough my own oil and brought it over there, probably would have cut the cost in half. Oh well, to Burgundy on Sunday.

    Lucky indeed, not sure how strict they are over there, but I know here they look out for that stuff.

    Exactly, you could drive around with a trunk full of Procedes and just say you are a dealer. They can't prove it was installed on the car...

    bmw mechanical deveriam you see Spain when I enter my car in the service

    the foreman is always telling me I'm totally crazy for doing all these moddens in my car of 70,000 thousand euros

    but he always tells me that my car is faster than bmw tested.

    I have had a substitution of gps, a fan and a high pump

    Yep, I was just going to say "I'm waiting for the warranty to run out". Would have been interesting explaining that one to my wife...Uh honey, we don't have a warranty anymore...Click here to enlarge

    When I was at the BMW dealer to get my DME fan replaced I pulled the JB4 and speed delimiter, but left the USB cable in the DME housing. I told them that it was used for logging (which it was only through the JB4 Click here to enlarge ). Nobody said anything about it. DME fan was replaced under coulance (2,5 years old)
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I hide my tune in the ECU box where they cannot find it. Trunk they don't check either though.
