If needed and or requested we will also replace the oil filter housing gasket for an addition $90 if done at the same time.

The service typically takes less than 3 hours from start to finish. We are also very flexible on scheduling and if you are local we are typically more than happy to pick up and drop you car back off to you if it is more convenient.

If you guys have any questions just shoot me a pm/email/call.

Thanks!

Anybody done spark plugs on '06 E90?

What's up Ohio guys? I have a 2006 BMW 325xi that just turned 100k miles. Computer is saying that I need to change my spark plugs. Just wondering if anybody has any experience doing this. What parts do I need for this job besides the spark plugs?

I'd highly recommend this to anyone in the area. Drove down for the morning from c-bus in June and was back home in the early afternoon.

Service performed was excellent and price was amazing vs Kelly BMW and MAG.

Intake was pretty caked with carbon after only 55k miles.

Car has never run better, and it was great that this shop was specifically experienced with our cars.

I used Quality Window tint in south westerville about 3 years ago.

Bad area of town, but great shop and product at a great price.

3yrs later and the tint looks brand new.

I have no personal experience, but a friend has recommended http://thetintdude.com/ and is a repeat customer.

Another friend has used http://mrtint.com/ on his 5 series and is very happy.

I am going with one of these, but haven't decided yet.

Thanks for the reply. I actually went ahead and did it all myself. I also had to change my ECC Shaft sensor while I was in the nitty gritty. Took me about 4.5 hours to complete but I feel accomplished!

Hey!! Is there anyone in the Cincinnati area who has experience vinyl wrapping window trim??

I bought a roll of matte black wrap about a year ago because someone on the forums said they'd wrap it for me. I bought the roll, then he flaked out and I haven't heard from him since... I never got around to trying it myself and don't think it's in my skill set.

Guys,

I am a recent explant from Ann Arbor and am looking at buying an M3 from Cain BMW in Akron/Canton over the phone/Internet. As I live in VA beach, it is tough to look at the vehicle in person.

Are there any locals in the Akron/Canton area that would be willing to swing by and take a look? It is a 2011 AW coupe. I would be happy to send some beer money via the good old USPS for some useful info.

Thanks!

RTF

PM sent.

Also, I'm definitely going to C&C columbus this weekend. For all those interested, I think it'd be awesome to have a huge e9x group there.
