So I just walked out of Desert BMW in Henderson and am so Fing annoyed. I have bought a TON of parts from them as they use to match Tischer prices and it just saved me the hassle of waiting on shipping. Today I went in to reorder some parts I already bought previously that they matched prices on to have them tell me they can't match prices that they "are way too cheap".

What I don't understand is I even have proof that they could do those prices from my previous order. What a bunch of idiots. They would rather get ZERO business then sell at a rate they can and increase their sales volume.

It's not like I can't just order them from Marco over at Mc Kenna as its only 1day shipping here via ground. It's just annoying and lame.

Well that sucks. I wish there were an independant dealership here not run by the terrible desert franchise.

For oil, I use OEM or Mobil 1. Lately, Mobil 1. For filters, OEM or whatever brand the local auto parts store have. As long as it comes with the washer, filter, and both o-rings, you're golden.
SN: about to order the multipack from ECS since both of my cars use the same filter.

I do have the magnetic plug in but havent had it out to verify what it caught. Hasnt been in long enough from the last oil change. The bigger oil jugs are normally 5 quarts. So you would need two single quart bottles and use 1.5

Is there already a las vegas shop list for the area? We should pool together info on good indy shops in Las vegas/Henderson.

Anyone know of any hookups on tires or cheap tires shops around here? Bummed I can't find anything when I used to get rock bottom prices installed usually cheaper than tirerack down in orange county.

Also we should find the cheapest place to walnut blast/clean our intake valves around here!

So I'm fairly new to this forum stuff......but I've done a few things to my 335 in the past. I was wondering if you guys know of a decent custom shop in Vegas to do work on my car?

I'd appreciate any help......

Sounds like a good idea. Maybe we could get some local group buys going.

It is normal for BMW's to consume a bit of oil and more so on the 335i. Beat on your 335i for a while and the oil consumption goes higher.
