Thanks, but can you believe it only cost 17 bucks from the dealership. WOW I was amazed I also bought a new Intake boot that only cost 35 bucks from the dealership. Turned out the jerk in throttle is from a mixture of that piece and the intake boot was cut in half. (Dont know how that happened)

The intake boot, as it gets older, develops cracks over time.

Well, I found out they gave me the wrong cable. They gave me the cruise control cable, just ordered the rite part and for the most part looks simple. Thanks to this website http://www.realoem.com/bmw/ I can now question BMW Parts Departmen. LOL
