I then asked him why a new car, apparently with new parts, needs to have the 'new part' replaced, he just gave me some BS as answer!

Can anyone explain why a new car, with new parts, needs to a 'new part' replaced? If the part is already new, then why does it need to be replaced by another new part to fix the problem? What is the logic here?
My Toyota 4runner had 2 stereo head units replacements in its first year. 1st one was made poorly by Pioneer. 2nd one still had issues. 3rd one was the charm.
Shit happens sometimes. And sometimes stuff just fails.

True...as long as it does not happen too often! I have a Toyota 4Runner too, it has about 170k km. It never requires any major service, just the regular ones. I was thinking of getting rid of it, but I might just keep it for the winter driving.

Your car looks nice with stuff you added to it. I will do it on my when the problem is fixed.

Actually, it's not uncommon for a small % of electronic parts to experience an "infant mortality" that typically happens in the 1st 60 days of usage. If they don't breakdown in the IM period, they tend to last quite a long time until they reach their maturity and start to fail from essentially "old age". Given the number of parts in our cars and the high reliance on electronics, a certain % is bound to fail. It's just life.

But the two parts they replaced are:
1) Tank Vent Valve
2) DTML pump

Which are electronic parts though....

Going back through some old posts as I have not read this entire thread.

I'm thinking of getting the cradle, but I'm not sure if it will work with my phone case (Otterbox Defender). Does the connector look like it will work with a fairly obtrusive case? I have an alarm clock at home with a dock, but it does not work with this case, and I don't want to give up the protection it affords.

I have yet to find a case that works with the cradle

Oh well, so much for that idea......

Bluetooth works fine for hands free phone use, and I have my music on a USB stick so it's not something I really need anyway.

Txs for the info.

Still reading old posts......

Put a piece of electrical tape over the sensor on the rear view mirror (glass side). Disables them completely.

I like seeing things in my side mirrors at night. Can't imagine how much worse it would be with tint.

Are there any options for the 335s to add in Caliper covers from BMW or is the only option to paint them?

Would it look good or does it only look good on Ms?

I have two pairs of 15mm spacers coming in, and i just bought a sheet of Carbon fibre vinyl wrap (going to attempt to cover the piano black centre console), my centre console is completely ruined (accidentally used a vacuum cleaner on it)

Also, has anyone found a good rear diffuser to replace the OEM grey/black plastic one

Lets see some pics!!!!

Thanks! I like the way the fronts stick out a little (compared to the back). I'm somewhat freaked that pushing the tires out like that (especially the front) is going to cause issues.

Still thinking about this mod, but also still contemplating the requirements.

The back should be easy to figure out, the wheels only have to move mostly up and down in the wheel wells, so if they clear, they clear.

In the front, they have to move up and down, as well as doing so through the full turning radius. While I admit those 15s look good pointing straight ahead, I'm a bit scared thinking what might happen on a big bump at full lock.........

Thinking maybe 15 back and 12 front might be a safe bet. Think I'll let you guys be guinea pigs for a bit before I decide :-)

the 18 front looked really odd because the car is not lowered...so the gap just seems even more because your perspective changes...

No No...if I lower her the 18s are perfect!

Thanks for that! It's one of those things that's hard to visualize without pics.

Leaning towards this ratio now.

I wouldn't be too worried about full lock on a big bump. Doesn't happen too often...at least not for me. I have spacers (10 rear, 12 front) and my car is lowered. I haven't had an issue yet. Granted, you do need to be more careful around bumps etc in general. But that goes along with having 19" wheels and with such low profile tires.
