Thanks for the link. I'm trying to find the right part number. I wonder; when I get one, probably used with a warranty, if I should just take the factory chip out of my original one and put it in the one I get so i don't have to worry about the key code. any thoughts. Or do I even need to worry about that if I get one with the same part number. The chips are easy to swap.

Give them a call, they should know what you will need to do.

Hey, thanks for all the input, I did find out that as long as all of the numbers are right I don't have to worry about anything else. Just Plug and Go!

Welcome, BMW fans! is amazing for finding parts/part numbers. They have really nice diagrams too. Pelican Parts - Porsche Parts & BMW Parts - Automotive Parts and Accessories - Porsche & BMW is my favorite parts sites

Thumbs up

Thanks, I'll check those sites out!

Well, found out that the best and least expensive fix for the "Water Logged" DME problem that gives so many 3 series owners such grief is this....

remove the plastic wind sheild cow then the black plastic rectangular box that houses part of the wiring harness attached to the firewall just below it. Vaccum out all of the leaves and squirl nut stuff (How do they get in there anyway?)that builds up over the years clogging the only drain port there is for all of the water run off from the rain and high powered car washes. The problem is the design in the rubber outlet tube for the drain (Located in the lower corner on the passenger side just inside of the compartment for the air blower housing)

The tube actually has a "Pinched" end by design where the water evacuates the tube. Leaves, dirt, and squirl poop literally plug up the tube causing the water to build up and finally drain right into the adjacent DME compartment killing the car's computer leading in most cases to the infamous "My Car Won't Start Syndrome" (MCWSS) I simply remove the tube and cut it completely off about 1/2" below the 90 degree angle and reinstalled it. Once i did this I dumped a gallon of water right into the compartment and it drained as quick as the water poured in. They make a new updated drain kit for these cars, but cost you money. The way I did mine is safe, gives you just as good if not better results, and best of all it is free.... except for the time you put into doing it.
