You can leave the compressor or compressor+bracket hanging in the engine bay. Clearly you should try to support it as best you can.

Why not just sell things as lots or give stuff away? Seems a waste to get things, store them, and then just toss them.

Before Sept 89 production 318i models have the 45mm strut housing, which is annoying. Technically, it is a late model, but BMW decided to put the smaller struts (which only came on M10 E30s in the...

An SA17 with typical hardware would have a range of 30ish miles, and Global Hawks typically operate somewhere in the 15 to 20000m altitude, so while it is possible that the US drone was in intl...

Most likely you'll need to get one from the UK, haven't seen much in the way of car covers in the past on continental European sites.

Totally agree with varg, as one unit is much easier, and that's a solid suggestion on the head bolts.

Congrats on the new little one.

As to the cams, work slowly when removing the nuts and maybe utilize a pattern, although I am not aware of an official one. Don't forget lube on the cam bearings...

Never heard of them, however the rads are likely only made by 3 or 4 suppliers globally, so you'll probably be okay. Worst case is that this brand is selling rejects from a reputable supplier.

No CEL?

If not, it's time to test your cam/crank sensors, your TPS, and possibly the O2 sensor. Could also be any number of other issues from fueling to AFM wear.

You happen to have missed us on a rare night that we didn't meet at the Starbucks as we were going to an outdoor party together.

Try another time, as the weather has improved, so has turnout.

IIRC, the grounds are collected either by the drier for the AC or by the ABS pump. Remove your plastic headlight cover panels in the engine bay and inspect.

A drone is no reason to go to war at all, especially since I strongly suspect that we have violated their airspace quite a few times. Basically this is a ant biting an elephant, nothing to worry...

Activate your signal switch and check for power at the bulb sockets. If nothing, your switch is bad, maybe repairable, but it's often easier to just replace it.

Check that the parking brake handle...

First, ask your buyer if they are okay with potential creases.

That said, I have been able to fold them, store it, and use it at a later date.

No, an "i" apron (in BMW speak) is 170ish, whereas an "is" spoiler is 240ish these days.

But in this case it might be worth trying the typically trashy Uro part (haven't tried it myself).
