Chances are there's a short or bad connection. You can try taking it apart and checking the solder points and wiring.

Spotted a Monaco Blue E90 LCI 335 with Mtec rear diffuser, black aftermarket wheels and matte black grills going down I93-S after the Boston tunnel. Anyone from here?

Anyone have any idea why my drivers side LED signal could be going out in the morning causing me to have no front left hand signal, but the rest of the day it works?

This happens every morning, and then works all day after that.

Got the bulb warnings coded out last night so it is still happening, but now it doesn't throw an error....still a problem lol. I need to get this fixed asap and I'm willing to pay someone to fix it if they know how. It's dangerous driving around without a signal!

This is just a guess, but it's possible it isn't properly sealed and that the morning dew is causing condensation which shorts it out. As the day goes on and the water evaporates, the signal starts working again.

Got possibility. Also looking into the fact that supposedly the depot bulb holders suck, though I'm not sure what is involved in replacing it with the OEM one.

Thanks.

I like how the race ends right at cigar masters. I'd fire up a big fat stogie when finished if I could even run the last half without an oxygen mask.

Bye bye warranty. I asked my SA to give it a once over since it was at the dealer for an oil change on Friday. Hopefully no issues from now until September/60k.



Picked up new-to-me tires from Hadley yesterday to get me through the summer. I hate the tiny stock wheels on my car right now.

You planning on ordering an F30?? If so, can I live vicariously through you??

BTW, we need to have a meet soon

We definitely need a meet, it's been way too long.

And yep, I've driven a 328 sport, 335 lux, and 335 sport. A few things about F30 irritate me, but I'm ready for a new ride and it still trumps the competition. Definitely waiting for M Sport at this point, still undecided about xDrive (depends on whether they finally offer a true sport suspension). Leaning towards EBII or AW 335 M Sport.

Just need the order guide... and for August/September to get here faster.

With all of this talk about a meet... lets just plan one!

How about something Mid May on a Saturday or Sunday? Does Burlington sound good for everyone? There's a 5 guys near the HMart, plenty of parking there though it may get busy due to traffic for Hmart.

I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be in either Florida or the Caribbean then, so chances are I won't make it. Honestly, I'd be embarrassed to show up anyway - I've got so many dings I haven't gotten around to having removed and my paint needs some serious correction to address the swirls.

This month is busy for me too, but it would be cool to sneak a meet in. Maybe we can get something together before the graduation season starts?
