Tims, 

 

I live in Argentina and unfortunately we don 't have  companies that import this kind of spare parts.  

 

I'm going to travel to London in may and I guess I could get it there or in Spain maybe.

 If you can find the part number, and it is still available, Bmw will be able to get it for you

Quite a few bits done. Finished the ignition last week. Seems the dodgy ignotion switch was the cause of the dim battery light while running. Been trying to work that out for over a year. Had alternator checked etc. Was driving me mad. Rear bumper finally installed today and started to do the rubber stripping as well.

Dash lights stop working the other day I noticed when moving the car about. Simple fix. Loose connection. It’s also developed a misfire on cyl 4. Pulled the cap which looks ok as well as the rotor but might buy another. Plug was fowled so cleaned and re gapped. Same. I notice if you let the lead arc at the cap to create a bigger spark it seems to smooth out so will pull and check leads soon. Shame as they are only a couple of years and only done 2-3k miles. They are magnacore items which I thought were a good upgrade so will have to check if they really are the problem
