    I had my recall for my 2003 330xi done on Monday/Tuesday. They gave me a loaner 2020 330i. It was nice. I bought a 2016 black 528i M-Sport for my wife to use as a grocery getter the previous week. I ended up having them do a complete inspection on my E46. The estimate for every thing came to about $4100. (See my breakdown below. ) LOL! I ended up pricing all of the parts myself and it came out to be $192. I plan on knocking out the laundry list of repairs within the next few months. I paid BMW to do the upper radiator hose because I didn't want the car to overheat on me. They also did a compression test for more coolant leaks but didn't find any.

    How did you find valve cover and oil filter housing gaskets, VANOS oil pressure line, belt tensioner, belts, and power steering hoses for under $200?

    The shitty mechanical tensioner and a belt is over $100 at Autozone, and the power steering pressure hose is another $100.

    But to be honest, my power steering hoses have been "leaking" for 200,000 miles and I've yet to replace them.

    Had my passenger airbag done a couple of weeks ago. Dealer recommended hose replacement along with drive belt replacement. quoted me $1200. I'll tackle this myself.
