Re: New owner of a 2000 LT checking in!
Check out the Technical section, and read all the headings of interest to you in the Hall of Wisdom, soon you will know a lot of what we have learned as a collective over many years.
And yes, in very many cases we DO know more than many dealers. It is all in the numbers, as many knowledgeable owners together can know more about a subject than one dealer with 3-4 mechanics. Also, as a collective we have come up with fixes and preventive measures that work well, but may not be a "BMW approved" measure. Such as drilling the slave cylinder drain hole, a very valuable one which some dealers will do, but most won't.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
