    Is anyone aware of a shop that keeps a stock of helper springs on hand? I recently got my new suspension but they didn't include any helper springs (among my missing camber plates as well) so I am looking for some 60mm around 50-100 lb/in at 2-3" extended and 1-2" compressed. Currently at full droop on my front strut with the height adjuster at the top 3/4 I have about an inch to an inch and a half of gap between the spring and the top hat.

    I see. Right by costco. Their new location is somehow just as annoying to get to as under the H1/Kapahulu. Haha

    Question guys:

    My 08 e60 has the MIL light on due to p0171 OBD II scan. It's either a dirty MAF, or faulty O2 sensor.

    Since Hawaii doesn't do emissions check, will it pass safety inspection if that's the only thing wrong? The car itself runs fine, there isn't any lag or rough idling.

    My Dashcommand app cannot clear the error. :/

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, safety won't pass a car with a CEL.

    Depends. Call the place and see how strict they are. K&Y in Kaka'ako won't fail for a CEL, as they have told me at least, but they will fail for a SRS.

    Brand new to the group, just registered today. I've been in Hawaii since 2008, been going to Honolulu Bimmer for all services (until a recent incident).

    My M-Ask (CD Player) died in my 2005 525i and I plan on ordering a replacement and installing it myself. I'm pretty sure it will need to be coded/recoded once installed and I don't mind paying dealership prices but I would rather save a few dollars it possible. Any suggestions where I can take it to be coded/recoded?

    Ah, K&Y. Owner Frank is hilarious. I think his favorite tool is a BFH.

    Easy DIY if your capable, unless you want the ABS actuated, then your going to need someone with the PA soft or INPA program. Still an easy job though. I have a motive power bleeder if you want to borrow it lmk.

    I have an '87 325 and I need to get the A/C working again and I would like to get the rust dealt with too, so I can start replacing seals. Oh to have a dry trunk and non-humid vehicle. I was hoping to get some recommendations on where to go. I live in Pearl City and don't mind taking a drive if it means fast and quality service. I appreciate any helpful suggestions.

    Get an AGM battery and you can do it yourself. Get a Foxwell NT510 to register the battery and it'll pay for itself from Day 1.
