I just found out that I'm gettin a new Clutch AND Flywheel all under warranty. I've been having a slight chatter when taking off so I took it in and aparently the Flywheel and pressure plate are scorched. He said it's not bad and if I had to pay for it he would just clean up the flywheel but he's replacing all of it under warranty. :D :D :D :D :D
I'll have my car back tomorrow! :D


Also... they're reprogramming my car for Xenons for only $47 (half hour of labor). And that's all I'll be paying. This is the best news I've had in a long time. Just had to share.

his car didn't come with xenon originally and he got them afterward, i guess the computer didn't recognize the xenon on his car and was having problem.. so the dealer programmed.. i am sure that's what happened :eeps: :eeps: :D

If you're car didn't come with xenons and you added them, the "headlight out" lights come on. They reprogram the computer to think you have xenons.

good news Rich:thumbup:

what dealer is this?
Paul Miller




They said that the flywheel and pressure plate were scorched. I asked why and he said probably due to some slippage. He said that it doesn't take much. But the clutch disc had plenty of meat left.

Yeah... they fool the computer into thinking you have em. Or they can also reprogram it to not check if your bulbs are out.

Yes, and they can also reprogram the 323 engine to automatically become an
M3 engine. No hardware switch or anything ... just needs new programming.

He means that you don't need a relay if you get xenons, they can reprogram it to see the xenons. Otherwise your car will think the headlight bulbs are out.:rolleyes:

Glad they didnt try and blame it on the SSK! i could see a dealer doing something like that... completely unfounded.

I had to put the stock back on to make sure they wouldn't. Can't wait to put my SSK back on!
