Re: Oil Pump Disc!! 67k motor clean!!

Yeah, Raj tends to always want as many discs as he can get his hands on. Your deposit 3 years ago may have still been $150, but either way, it'd help him out a ton.

It just hasn't aged as well, and does look ancient next to the E46, which is just timeless.

A car seller thinks I'm a scammer.

Which, given that it's Craigslist and I'm out of state, is a perfectly legitimate default reaction.
