Got Lucky!

Check out the condition of my timing belt... loooks like it could have snapped any minute. I'm so glad I decided to change it. This IS the reason you always do a timing belt change when you get a new BMW.

Would you split the shipping ? I feel like paying all the shipping is a little unfair.

Something like a 52/47 spilt seems reasonable.

The shipper, obviously. They need to have some skin in the game to ensure safe delivery.
