well i took my car to dealer ship and i will share the list with you:
two P/S lines -$418.50
Brackets for lower control arms $472.35
Valve Cover Gasket $312.84
Light Switch $88.59
Bulb and Socket for tail light $47.00
Frt Struts $1010.00
well adds up to about 2500 and some of those are not with installation. i figured its time for me to learn DIY and buy these parts and do it myself. FIrst Question- HOw hard will all this be? yes its a very general question but rate on a 1 to 10 bases 1 easy as starting car 10 engine rebuild. Second- ITs a good time for me to redo my hole suspension i supose to suggestions im guessing h R spring and blisten struts. anything else i need with those? Thats all i can think of. Plz offer any advice like where to get these parts at cheapest price and all that good stuff. Thanks alot guys.
by the way i just priced everything needed except upgraded suspension and came out to a little under 200 WTF.. oh and the brackets but i saw them on there but sold out. but still from 2500 t probably around 1000 is just insane thanks for the website spooky
Vakve cover gasket 312.84? Wow ... get a gasket from bmaparts, rent a torque wrench from your local autozone and tackle it yourself. even with no knowledge of how to fix stuff, you should be able to do it ... hell, even if it takes you all weekend, you're saving money...
Light switch ... again, easy diy.
bulb and socket ... can do that in 5 minutes with a screwdriver
the other stuff ... u might be able to do yourself, but its gonna require a lot of tools and a lot of knowledge. i suggest you take it to some other place that does euro cars ... they will do same quality work for half the price.
alright. thanks torque.. i know the bulbs and lights are easy. haha. i was more scared about suspension and the p/s.. oh yea. the dealer said that two belts looked bad but i was under the impression i only had one belt. from the alt. im not right im guessing. its a 1994 by the way.
Are P/S lines the Same as P/S Hoses because i cant find lines any where? And if any one could give me the part number that would be fantastic. By the way i need two of them im guessing runing from steering rack to pump and fluid container to pump. is this right?
I don't know if they have any hard lines are not. On the BMW there actually should be 4. The reservoir is separate from the pump. there should be two on the pump and two from the pump to the reservoir.
Try www.realoem.com. They have exploded diagrams of the parts and part numbers.
