Rod Bearing recall

Anybody else go in for this recall? I'm not sure what all years, but I know it's on the 2003 model M3. I guess I will do it, it's said it's more preventive than necessary though, and I dread the 2000 mile break in again.

Also, my M ate my sunroof cover panel last time it was opened fully. I was going to shut my cover today during the hot part of the day, and I couldn't find it. It was gone between headliner and top. Finally, sticking my fingers back there and pulling, I Was able to get it out of there, but it's like it's now off track. Bummer.

So, that repair must be done at the same time my Rod bearing recall is handled.

My Rod Bearing recall was done, picked up a early oil change out of it, and got my ailing sunroof fixed. I was told to keep it under 4000 RPMs for 1200 miles. I think technically he was giving me 5000 RPMs, but suggested 4 so I keep it under 5. That's pretty tough in an M3 all the time, it will be a slow 1200 miles, lol.

Actually I think ive heard abotu this before. Thats why some people didnt want to pick up the early e46 M3's cause the engine would "blow up"



For that 1200 miles..just drive across country udner 4,000 rpms. and then once u hit the 1200 miles take a giant u-turn adn race back

Hmm, your idea has merit on the cross country run. I truly think my M motor was just fine, but, since they paid for it, and it was recommended, I decided to go ahead and do it. My dealer rep made sure to tell me that the car would tell on me if I didn't keep it down. I said uh yeah, I know it will, lol. Whether I keep it or sell it, it's a good point to be able to know it was done.

I am considering dropping my M in favor of regaining a new classic car. I mean I have put all of 5,000 miles on it in 1 year and 3 months. I have not made up my mind yet, but after selling my Mustang Mach I, (don't ask), I'm plotting a course to my next classic. First may be a new garage, bringing me to 4 car.

I have contemplated waiting until the M is paid out to get my next classic, and keep both. Maybe.

Just say no to domestic. Honestly, you dont come to a BMW forum and then expect a user named ///M Power to agree with you selling a M3. I think you just made that post to upset me. Congratulations, it worked.

No, I didn't post it to upset anyone. Well, you just have to understand the love affair I had with a car I owned for 14 years, then I sold it, and I've been sick ever since. M's are more easily replaced than Mach I's. You perhaps are not old enough to understand the love of a classic 65-72 muscle car. Well, I had 5 BMWs during the time I had that one Mustang, and needless to say, selling it left a terrible void in my heart. I'd already planned to get a BMW driver until I get the classic car paid for if I do that.

This would upset me, a 5 time BMW owner as much as anyone. But there is one thing that has always bothered me about my M. The fact the guy smoked it up that had it first, and I have not been able to get completely rid of this weird oder that is particularly offensive when I open my sunroof.

I've cleaned, disinfected, etc, and just never been able to get rid of the smell. Even though I love my car, and it's beautiful, this has bugged me forever.

I do have 10 grand saved for my next classic car from the sale of my first (after paying some bills), so if my business can do GREAT, maybe I can finance that love without selling my M.

Maybe I should have left my comments off there, sorry if it offended.

In that case, I hope your buisness does TERRIFIC.


And you are correct, I defintely am not old enough to "understand the love of a classic 65-72 muscle car," but this does not bother me at all. I bleed blue and white...

ok, then help me out, spread the word about CAT Cables. You do Audio Video? I design, build, and sell high end audio video cables for home theater and 2 channel stereo. I also run a V-Bulletin based forum myself. I'll just point you to one URL that has all my stuff on it. www.matrixav.us

Business could get good enough to get me there within a year or two if things went Great! I mean if I get my new garage, I'll be busy fixing that up the next year or so anyway, so maybe I can be patient enough and keep my M. It was a dream to have the M, trust me. It is quite beautiful as well with very low miles at 15,800 too, a nice feature. I drive an old Honda Passport or S10 pickup as daily grinders.

CAT cables, eh? What an inconvenient name to be confused with another type of cable. Honestly I dont know anything about audio systems, just video editing.

Good Luck and I hope you stay on the boards!

What, because of the conotation of CAT5? Actually, it's made good sense for 5 years, and equates to "Custom Audio Transmission Cables".

I also own katkables.com.

I am really curious about what your saying here, if that's not it. It is a fairly established domain name though, so changing it would not be something I'd take lightly.

I've owned a 528e Blue metallic, a 325is Calypso Coral, a 328i convertible Boston Green, a 330ci White, and an M3 Carbon Black. I have a feeling I'll be around in some capacity. :B
