Hey Folks,

I just wanted to say hello and express my delight in purchasing an '03 M3. What an awesome car, however I do need some assistance in clearing up some issues. The SES light is on and throws a P0411 code. I have read up on the solutions for that code, however I have no idea what "Seafoam" is or where to purchase some. Also, the tire pressure yellow light just came on yesterday right after I hit a bump on the highway doing about 80mph. I am going to try the reinitialization and such, but it sounds like a common problem.

Also, I have no idea of what options this car all has. It's Silver, black int, brushed Al trim, power seats with memory, 6SP, CD & CD changer, etc. Is there an online database for looking up VINs to see what options came on the car?

Anyway, it's great to be back in a Bimmer. I had a 93 325i with E46 M3 rims, Bilstein and Koni suspension, short shifter, and Remus exhaust. I have missed that car ever since I sold it a few years ago. The M3 is that and soooooo much more!!! My other ride is a 99 A4 Avant that I bought new, then I added 17" Porsche turbine style 5 spoke rims and a TAP stage one kit. Great car that runs and drives great after 170k of hard use.

Great to be here and I hope to make many friends.

Kind regards,
Darin

Thanks kevcm.

I found the correct info here to troubleshoot my P0411 code. I just was curious what Sea Foam actually is (cleaner, solvent, etc.) and where to get it. If my auto store doesn't know what it is, I would need to know what it is to get an equivalent product. Any ideas on equivalents?

***I just googled it and it looks like NAPA and Autozone carry it.***

For the tire pressure monitor, press and old down the tire pressure button until the light goes away. Check your tires for even pressure.

As far as the p0411 error, I have it too and researching it now.
