Re: Transmission light on/off

Does 5th gear flash for a few seconds while your car limps, before skipping gear and popping up cog light? And is it only 5th gear?

Re: How many hours of labor for smg pump replacement?

I think I paid about $500 to get the whole thing done back in 2015. $522 labor from a dealership is a pretty solid price, my local dealer would go past $1000 easily.

Re: Water pump pulley hitting tensioner

I can see how it's possible. Mine had only a little wiggle to it when it started to seep coolant to the belts, causing it to sling coolant all over the shroud. Replaced this past Monday.

Re: Nicole's BMW Motorsport artwork to download

That is genuinely some brilliant artwork, subtle with the M badge but unique as well. You have real talent there!

Re: SoCal '02 M3 Coupe SMG 448xx miles

That's a seriously good price considering the low mileage. It's hard to find a good deal in SoCal!

Re: failed SMOG test after PPI?

Re: SoCal Valve Adjustment

+3 Kaiv, got my valve adjustment two years ago and got 21 out of 24 valves adjusted at probably the best price anywhere, definitely your go-to guy in SoCal.

Re: What's this worth?

If everything checks out with a PPI, that would be a steal. I've seen cars with more questionable owners, more mileage, older, worse color combo, SMG, you name it; and sell for more where I live.

Yeah, the majority of M owners (or non-M car enthusiasts) that I know have no idea that we even exist, and if they do they only use it to look at classifieds.

Edit: saw the pics, did you have pics of it before? My seats are ok now but that looks pretty good.
