Sorry about your experince Crowz. With PP Onetouch, it's just almost as fast as amazon buy it now. Just checkout with PP and One Touch makes it almost instantaneous !

Refunds are literally processed the same day or following when they get it back.

Another BMW retailer I'm dealing with right now, is playing blond. I email them after 2 week of them receiving the shipment back inquiring status on refund. I sent them a screenshot of UPS tracking # and who signed for it. I get another email where now they magically found the package and will move the refund to the front of the line. C'mon man. Was they waiting for me to either forget the refund and wait for the inquiry

Count yourself lucky to get a refund at all - that whole refund deal is pretty much only the USA - pretty much anywhere else in the world it's "caveat emptor" and you own the item the moment you walk out the store with it (or it's shipped).

Faulty goods aside of course...

Almost no retailer over here would offer any form of refund and no one would ask for one - you buy it, you own it. Makes you consider your purchases rather carefully...

the air suspension stuff gets here today. Shows out for delivery as of now.

I doubt I will install them today though since its 43 degrees and raining.

Tomorrow is supposed to get into the 60's and no rain so that will probably be the install day.

Ok life got in the way so I didn't get as much done as I wanted but I did manage to replace the air spring on the passenger side (the one that was hissing). Just to tired, cold and late in the day to tackle the other one and super bad storms predicted for tomorrow. So I put it back together and plugged the module in. Pump came on and it leveled up perfectly.

After cleaning up my tools and stuff I took it to jacks to get something to eat.

Cranked right up and ran fine. On the drive there I was amazed how smooth it rode. It drives better than my 2013 X5 ride wise. Very smooth. Even with just rear air suspension it makes a huge difference on rough roads.

Anyways I get to jacks and Im waiting at the window and I notice it starts to idle rough and the idle is getting lower and lower. Its down to 500 rpm when I put it in park. It seems to pickup some but still a little rough. After a minute or so idling in park it starts dipping down in rpms again. I end up having to give it a good bit of gas to keep it at 1000 rpm.

I get my food and pull off and as soon as I get out in the road I realize I have no power.

It barely accelerates. I get turned onto a long stretch of road at it isn't accelerating worth a flip. Actually it isn't "accelerating at all" just holding speed even with the pedal about 1/2 or more pressed. Then it surges and back to no power then after a few seconds another full power (normal power for the pedal position) and then no power again. It does this a few times and then just stays weak.

I nursed it back to the house and went inside. I came back out later and cranked it up and it seemed fine. I put it in gear and goosed the pedal and everything seems fine.

I had a check engine light with fuel trim 1 and 2 exceeded and a pedal error of some kind. Basically read something along the lines of not what was expected.

I will try again with it sunday since tomorrow is supposed to be so bad and I can barely walk right now from working on it

Symptoms made me think fuel filter, pump or the hose had come off at the maf meter. But I checked under the hood and everything looks ok.

Its been sitting since last june so no telling what I am dealing with now.

Sounds like it might be the fuel pump? How much fuel is in it?

Between 3/4 of a tank and full. It had less than a 1/4 when I got it and I went and almost filled it up with super unleaded.

Seemed fuel related to me with the surge back to running right then no power.

I went and watched a video on changing the fuel filter on an E53. WTH were they thinking? There aren't that many bolts holding the dash in.
