Well, my A/C compressor finally died. I just replaced it with a new one through the dealership. $1272.00! There is only one car A/C shop in the area that will work on BMW's and they are closed for relocation unitl June.
I have to say that although I didn't like paying for a new compressor at 90,000 miles, I sure feel good about it now. Just one thing I will not have to worry about. It sure works great!
Although I have never been a fan of taking my cars to the dealership in the past for such work, I really think the dealership here is pretty good and straightforward. I could have spent more money for the dryer but they didn't see any isues with the one I had and told me so before they started the compressor work.
