If you guys remember, a while ago I posted about my clear parking markers falling out.
Yesterday I had one fall out going down the road at about 60 with my friend behind me. It tore the wires and fell completely out of the car... hit the ground, and bounced about 6 feet into the air. We stopped and went back to get it.
Called bavauto, and they're shipping me out a new parking marker assembly. They gave me no hassles replacing it, but fixing the wiring is going to be my own expense. This is another thing to add to the hell I'm going through with my car currently...
i am glad to hear that bavarian autosport is not hassling you at all considering that half of the parking lights they send out are flawed from the company that manufactures them. you will know when you didn't get a flawed corner light when it stays in for a month without coming out luckily, after 2 tries, i got ones that stay put
I bought a BMW becasue the problems they typical run into, are problems all cars run into. It's just that a BMW doesn't have those problems until it has about twice as many miles.
I've got a 115K on my 97 328iS. It had the brake pads changed at 80K, and aside from regualr maintence (oil, spark plugs) had had zero repairs. How many other cars out there go 115K with out having any real work done to them?
wow yours fell out, might i suggest maybe getting an obx one they might not have the highest quality products and their record might not be the best but i got one from my local speed shop for only 40 and hasnt falling out or gave me any problems and i had it about a year already
Yeah, but it's not a simple wire splice. They actually pulled out of the plastic connecting assembly (where they were crimped in). It's part number 12 in the attached diagram. Bavauto is shipping me a new part, but I don't know how to attach it without recrimping it. It's not as simple as a simple wire splicing. (I wish)
I'll show you tomorrow or whenever we can get together.
Tomorrow evening I was heading over to a friend at a european transmission place and getting my check engine light checked out. I'll give you a call.
