Come on now guys.. Its only hoses, not like I am removing camshafts without the special tool mystery tool from BMW. The real question is do you need to remove the manifold, which of course requires removing all the plastic cowling by the wipers. Seems with a little struggling and maybe just removing the windshield wiper cowling I cam get access to all the hoses.. Does anyone know?
From my perspective, if this was a dealer job, between the hoses and labor it would be 800 bucks or more so I know someone out there has gotten dinged that hard for hoses and would remember, or if they havn't then i have to beleive that BMW makes the best hoses on earth or that even the stealers dont charge for intake removal. Anyone out there have any experiences?
