Now what does it need AKA the bad stuff:

  • Oil pan gaskets leak again. I replaced them with OE BMW ones and used silicone sealant. They need to be re-done with something much stronger like Tough Stuff sealant.
  • CEL comes up very rarely for misfire while on highway. However it never ever misfires or acts strangely. I am pretty sure its the COP coil (common failure point).
  • Front fender liner studs broke when I removed them so I cannot re-install fender liners - need to tack weld new studs.
