I think it was 545 with tax, I paid 500 at release for the Appradio3 (with DVD), used it for a year and got retail back, and the NEX for wholesale.

I'm happy.

Forgot to post yesterday I finally got to see my rain sensor in action yesterday. It had been a year since it rained while I was driving.

Cool the way they go faster based on speed.

Nothing major...

Just bought my baby a "new" rebuilt engine. Experienced engine failure back in September of last year and Wifey told me I was NOT going to have it fixed. So after mopping around for months she told me I could get my baby back on the road so called the shop to have them order me a rebuilt engine (from TX). Engine arrived on Monday so about a week away from having her back in my life (to me she never left). First mod I want to do is AE...so let the research begin. THANKS!!!

Sorry to hear about the engine failure. How many miles on the clock during the failure, and what exactly failed in the engine?

I honestly don't remember the mileage but I believe I was somewhere around 150k. It wasn't exactly an engine failure per se...timing chain slipped off track (brittle plastic guide) and was running on the crankshaft. Mechanic just said better to get a rebuilt with a warranty than having them open up mine to see what damage was done. I'm not at all mechanically inclined so hope this explains the situation...

Thanks for the info. However, it's cheaper to fix the problem than to buy a reman engine. I just ordered the timing chain tensioner to hopefully prevent what happened to your engine.

Here's link to a good thread: http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...ain-guide.html
