Re: 2006 Interlagos Blue/Black BMW M3 - Slicktop - Manual - ZCP

No doubt it could but I think this would sell much more quickly if it was stock (it has main issues addressed and looks well cared for) and mods are quality so those would sell quickly as well.

Re: 2006 Interlagos Blue/Black BMW M3 - Slicktop - Manual - ZCP

Put it back to stock (or mostly stock) and I think it would sell for $23-25K. Mods would probably sell for $7-10k and then you're right around your ask but with a bit more effort.

Re: Battery light on!! What’s the issue?

Valeo from FCPEuro is the best option. I had two reman Bosch's already and both crapped out in less than 1 year.

Re: Any news on Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals?

25% off supersprint seems to happen regularly about 1-2 per year so it's nothing unheard of.

Re: Any news on Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals?

For supersprint it'll probably be 25% off would be my guess. Maybe 30%.

Re: Need help, hard start when vehicle warm runs flawlessly after.

Sometimes you just gotta take it to your trusted local indy shop and get it taken care of. Worth the peace of mind unless you have more patience to keep diagnosing.

If any of you that are switching to these are looking to sell your OE fog lights let me know. Looking for clear (not fluted) in good condition.

Re: Dougles does a 4.0

I hate this voice. I can't believe he's 30 years old because he looks 45. Also the fact that he's 30 years old and has a yahoo email account.
