It is getting resolved. They just are not taking the blame.
Exact quote. "we know it could not have happened here, but the
customers know their cars, so we will get dent guy to check it out"

So I'm am wrong and right...

Anyone know where I can get a e90 stock or M front bumper for a fair price? My brother curbed the front and it is beyond repair. Car has been sitting in the garage for the past few days and it is making me sick looking at it in this condition.

Yep i got my M-tech from Longtran for $650 and had it prepainted(which I suggest not to do find a bodyshop local). I don't know how but his shipping quotes are extremely cheap under $100 for me. 4 months now and not a blemish or scratch in the paint job execpt a few bugs now and then, but still get your paint job done local it is cheaper.

I picked up a nail Saturday and had it plugged and re-aired the same day. I tried reseting the onboard computer to make the red flat tire monitor icon to go away but it wont. I know I'm not losing air,am I doing it wrong by what it says in the manual? Volks feel free to chime in.

I think I found a good local mobile detailer.

He's relatively new to the area.

He uses Zaino exclusively.

He detailed my wife's SUV today - I haven't seen it yet, but it was a real mess before he started.

The guy's name is Corey Jones, company = Classic Reflections

pm'd right back I included a picture from last night. Just don't opt for pre-painted that will jack the price up.

Volks I finally got it. You have to press the reset then release then press the reset button again holding it in for 8 seconds then the check box will pop up. then your set to go. I guess when I go back up to Kentucky next week, I not taking my car with all those shitty uneven backroads. I even scraped the bottom of my M-tech trying to enter a driveway. I hate Bowling Green and Glasgow Ky, if anyone is from there reading this your roads especially in Glasgow sucks.

new guy

So I've been forum lurking for a while and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Shane and my new joy to drive is a 06 TiAg 330i premium/sport w/ black interior. Mods so far are blacklines, sunglass holder (ashtray replacement), luminics yellow fog light bulbs, silvervision turn signal bulbs and a set of silver Breyton Spirits in OEM rubber. I plan on doing painted splitters, oem trunk spoiler, split arm rest. I've always been an auto enthusiast but originally drove/built Hondas/Acuras, Subarus, and sometimes a even a Wankel.

Anyhow, I've got a somewhat general question probably best directed at Volks that I thought I'd ask here. The "plastic velcro" discs that hold your front floor mats down; do you just punch a hole where they fit best? or is there a threaded hole under the carpet? Also, if you were working this morning; my car was in the shop having the rear passenger visor shade repaired.

well... that's it for now, I guess.

I was at the dealer
dropping off my car and saw a 06 325i for sale.
On the specs it says it's a 2.5L even though it is
a 3L....

Anyways because of the badly designed cup holders I need to get
a new radio and the dealer won't cover it. 1450$. I told them to just put the old one back in. The ony thing that is messing up is that half the pixels in the screen are dead intermittently.

I have a similiar issue where some of the pixels are bad, not completely dead but much more dim than the rest of the display. I was planning on asking about it when I took my car in for an oil change next month....

I imagine they removed the head unit and found evidence of spilled liquid in there? sucks.... my wrx had similar design cup holders... worst idea ever.
