Guys/Gals: Just picked up my ride !.. 03 330ci.. steel grey.. SP/PP/Xenon... I have posted here a few times... just wanna say an oficial Hello.. :) One question: There is some yellow gooey stuff in the empty compartment in the hood. You know, that emptyspace that is on the passenger side.. Anyone knows what that is ? Its kinda leaking out from a crack/gap in the firewall..

Welcome to the wonderful world of Cosmoline. BMW AG sprays that crap all over every hidden surface to prevent corrosion during shipping. You should see what happens to aluminum engine parts after that crap bakes on for 10 years and 250k miles.

If that yellow stuff is Cosmoline, it will not wipe off. It seems to come off only with nasty solvents.

We might not be talking about the same stuff. Try to wipe it off and post the results.
