To start off the day I wake up at 9 am which is the same time my ethics class starts. So on my way to school which takes an hour to get to I realize today is the day they start closing the gates in my neighborhood. Upon return to my apartment I cannot open the gate the pass code is no longer valid. The homeowner president lady did not publicly report the change of the code. That DAMN SNOW HOE she better watch her tire pressure and brake fluid level! Well I wait for someone to leave then I hauled ass through the gate as is closed and got in just in time. Upon return to my apartment I smell gas bad, again, I had smelled gas for about 2 days now but was in denial saying it was the old ass Oldsmobile ahead of me in traffic. Well I notice a puddle under my right rear tire sure enough I had a leak in the line from the fuel pump to the fuel filter. I drove over to my friendly neighborhood Crumleys BMW & Porsche mechanic and get a very nice bill of 131 dollars for that line and the return line. Thank god I got it fixed before I went on my 5 hour trip to SC on Wednesday. I am sure you guys could care less but figured I would rant and thank god my day went so well.
I know. Thanx I can't believe I got it fixed and quick. I appreciate it. Also it is awesome that there is an access panel for the fuel pump. So many cars come into my dads shop for fuel pumps and you have to drop the tank and everything I mean how much easier is that? BMW really thinks of some good ideas. Although the A/C on these thins was sort of an after thought but you gotta love them!
