Re: Brake caliper boot, problem?

I'd recommend you buy either ATE or Genuine BMW rebuild kit. It's not something you want to do again. ATE made the brakes so it's OE and way cheaper than Genuine BMW.

Be careful when pressing...

Re: New Catalytic Converter

Re: New Catalytic Converter

Yeah, that's what I've been doing the few times and I'm barely passing. Failed a couple times already because the they waited too long to start the test.

New Catalytic Converter

I'm barely passing smog in my 95 so I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a new cat soon (227k).

Seems like DEC and Magnaflow are my only options but how difficult is the install?

Can anyone...

Re: Hood emblem -- old vs new style

Do you have any close up pics to show the difference?

Could it be possible that your old emblem was actually a fake one that the previous owner had installed? There are plenty of made in china...

Re: OE Waterpump - Is this for real?

"Genuine" BMW parts are the parts that the car came with new.

"OE" is basically the same part, less the BMW logo

Site must be wrong then because it's identified as OE.

Re: Hidden dash cam

Why not just keep it installed? Having a video with the wrong date is better than no video. Some cameras don't have a time stamp at all.

Not sure where the hostility is coming from. Obviously ECS wouldn't intentionally sell a used water pump.

I'm just saying that it doesn't look "Brand New"

Re: OE Waterpump - Is this for real?

It looks dirty and used. No way it's brand new. If it wasn't already installed, I'd say exchange it.
