  1. My 325 ci was in a minor collision. (Not at fault)

    General E46 Forum
    Basically someone back into me as my car was at a complete stop in a parking lot. My bumper and the part where my blinker is suffered some damage. Because I'm not at fault and the other persons insurance will cover damages, should I take my car to BMW (stealership) to fix or a body shop that...
  2. Oil consumption... should I be worried?

    General E46 Forum
    So about... a month or 1,000 miles ago on my E46 with 130,000 miles on it I had the oil pan and oil filter housing gasket replaced by the dealer since they were leaking.

  7. The stealership kept the change

    General E46 Forum
    Yesterday, I had my car in for scheduled service. When I dropped it off I remember thinking, "perhaps I should empty the change from beneath the armrest. Nah, they wouldn't resort to such blatant and petty theft!" This morning, I could only laugh when I noticed not a single quarter remained...
