Question

Yeah, BDMBimmer is on the roll. He just programmed my 335i not to chime, and show the digital speed. I am curious if there is a program that can auto-start my car with some sort of clapper sequence.....

What else can he do? Can he improve the throttle response?

Cool

He can do things that are not engine related plus register your new battery.

BDMBimmer, How does your turning water into wine practice come along?

does anyone have a 335i with the performance exhaust?

I have one, but I still feel there is drone/loud low frequency noise in the cabin..its not all engine sound, ...I just want to compare at some point.

Just had BDMBimmer do some programming for me. Excellent service, highly recommended. If you need some coding in the Ottawa area, look him up!

Hey everyone,

I've got my heart set on buying a 2007-2008 323i in the near future.

Now my dilemma... Do I buy CPO (more expensive) or from a non-BMW dealer (less expensive). Keep in mind that I will be financing the car and I've noticed that BMW has attractive financing options.

Any suggestions?

IMHO, CPO is the way to go, unless you're a mechanic and can really examine the car yourself and know what you're looking for. It will be a bit more expensive, yes, but I think it's worth the 2 extra years mech warranty, the peace of mind to know the car's "the cream of the crop" (dealers take the best of the used ones to sell themselves), and at the very least, a dealer will stand behind a car they sell you. A used car lot certainly won't. Also, given that you're going to finance, BMW CPO 3-series rate is 0.9%, not sure you can better that elsewhere.

Yes the seatbelt chime can be disabled along with the key in the ignition chime.

Hello,

My wiper blades need replacement. Its unfortunate that I have to replace the arms as well. I was quoted for around $100 (can't remember exact figure) last time I visited Ottos.

Anyone here know where I can get OEM wiper arms + blades for cheaper?

If I can get non-OEM that fit well, I'll go that route too.

The passenger side or the driver side?
If I am not mistaken, you will need a special tool to get those arms out, also there is a toll to adjust the gap between the hood and wiper arms [so they don't touch each other].

It is simple. As you know, there is outdoor water usage ban in Barrhaven so I cannot wash my car regulary. So, I have found this product that will clean your car with no water at all. Spray it on and wipe it off. I tried it and the result is in the link I had posted. I hope this explains.

Thanks cc_25. How much negotiating room is there in a typical CPO? Also, what kind of questions should I ask the dealer?

My confusion, was that I thought the product was mixed with water, but clearly is used straight up.
