DC Port of Entry

Does anyone know which port of entry the cars for DC come through (Passport BMW if that makes a difference).

EDIT: I think I just answered my own question. My production status sheet from my dealer says NYCPOA. I assume that means it comes through New York. Can someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

Donny, How are those turn signal bulbs? I didnt get around to installing them, and you know what happened the day I installed the rear fogs...

Plus, I dont know whether my euro's are going to have clear bulbs or not... I think they will because thats what comes standard in europe...

Shoot...forgot to share with you, they don't fit!! Been meaning to check out the original thread to confirm. I know I got the part number down good, but the bulb is of a complete different type

Btw, access to the turn signal bulbs could not be easier ... your mtecs are happy in their new home

Glad to see the mtecs are happy!!!


I didnt even take the bulbs out of the box... Those do not work at all??? If they blink amber, I might want to use them in the rear for turn signal bulbs (again, if they fit)

Yeah, the turn signals don't fit, they have different base...the e90 is circular and the bulbs we bought have a flat/pinched rectangular base.

AJ,
The euro lights come with clear turn signals.
I had to switch the ones that came with Achal's car with the ones that came
with the euro lights.

was that from Rover on ebay? how sure are you it would work?

... seems like the e90 would be my hobby car from now on, Im thinking of maybe even dropping it, but using coils and taking it to Driving school.

and I'll leave my M as the garage princess, unmolested
