well yesterday i sent the car in for some recent problems. and my mechanic told me to stick around and do it myself. i was like awesome!, i wanna learn more about my car and yesterday was a big step. i took the alternator out and replaced it all by myself. (with a little guidence from the other 5-6 guys working there of course) and also did a basic oil change and sparkplug change and changed the P-steering fluid. the good thing is that my mechanic said i dont have to pay for anything, (i still had to pay for the alternator which i got from another place) the plugs and oil were almost free, the "almost" is that i have to come in sometime and work a half day. Now this is huge for me because i had asked earlier in the day , if i could come in sometime and work for free, (you learn so god damn much just sitting around watching what the mechanics do, especially these ones because they are friends of mine and explain why,when, how, where, who) yesterday was a big day, im another step closer to becoming a much more knowledgable BMW enthusist.

whenever i try to watch a mechanic, they chase me away with a big wrench and threaten to call the police. i wonder if my ski mask has anything to do with it.

sweet i'm sure if ur mechanic loved german cars back in the day then he mustve been a huge fan of the E30 M3. my mechanic was/is a E30 nut, he had owned 3 E30's while they were in production: 1986 325, 1987 325is, and a 1989 325is. he knows my car in and out much better than i do
