to the forums
i too am from maryland, and i know a very good mechanic, but it is probably a bit out of your way (annapolis, md)
anyway, the wheels you see are either the M3 wheels, or the M3 replicas. im pretty sure bigred has the m3s. i think i have the replicas, because they are 16", and the m3s contour rims are 17"s only. the replicas are made by AT Italia and cost like 300 a piece i hear. while the real m3 17" rims are atleast 500 a piece
sorry i dunno about your coolant problem

Regarding the coolant leakage, I took to the mechanic and he says that there is a leak in the water pump and a replacement would solve the problem. and his quote for water pump replacement is around $500. So, can I do the water pump replacement on my Own with a buddy as a helper. If so, can you suggest the tools that I need to have (FYI - since I bought the car recently I don't have a single tool) and the instructions for replacing the water pump.
Yesterday when It was really hot and when my car ran for 1 hr, I figured out, two leakages from the car
1. The coolant is leaking only when the engine gets heated up and ran after 30-40 mins. I see a coolant drops, drop by drop once for every 30-40 secs. And when "Check the coolant level" comes up for once a week I am filling the coolant. I really want to get this done as quick as possible (If it can be done on my own). If it is really a serious problem that I should not wait any more, I better take to the same guy and get the water pump replaced. So, I will be waiting for your suggestions.
2. I see some water dripping of drop by drop exactly at the middle of the chassis, What could be the possibility. I smell nothing and not a greezy its just like water?
So, could you guys post your ideas of what you think? about these two and give some suggestions.
I am really impressed with your previous responses and planning to some mods for my 95325i after solving these serious leakages.
