Thanks to JETBLK335i for the suggestion, as well as the coffee and donuts this morning.
np. enjoy the pics. hope too see you again and get some more peeps in the future... all the best.

I stopped by today and got a wash at Birdie's. Eric is a real cool and friendly guy. They did a very good job. Whenever I'm lazy to wash it myself, I'm definitely going back there.

Nice meeting you guys too! I found out that the torx screw you found laying in my engine bay was a 1-time use aluminum screw that attaches accessories to the block. The blue paint on the top of the screw indiciates that it's a 1-time use product.

I also found out that broken headlight tabs are extremely common, and BMW acknowledges this defect. They won't warranty the headlights, BUT they do sell an OEM BMW headlight repair kit for broken tabs...lol. $20/side to fix. Not too bad, considering new headlights would cost a pretty penny.

Give another dealer a try. It's worth a shot.

How'd you get the orange "eyebrow" in the e90 headlights to be clear? The eyebrow in the e90 headlights are one of the reasons i was trying to steer clear of the e90s.... Unfortunately in searching lately i've found they're cheaper to get used than the coupes so i might wind up going with an e90
