Also I haven't done major maintenance on this type of car so I know it will take a while. But I could think of other ways I'd like to spend $500
Right, but I was talking about a dealer charging 3 hours. If a job took an hour and the invoice says 3 hours, to me that is just a fancy kind of theft unless it is clearly stated that the job will be charged at book rate no matter what.
Oh yeah, well definitely I agree there.

Thanks Derek! I loved that car. Bought her new and kept her for 14 years. The Imola red was so striking. Got compliments all of the time. And the last time from a group of valet boys at a fancy restaurant in LA when I dropped it off about three years ago. I thought to myself that I would never see the car again. After dinner I gave a different valet my ticket. The car was gone! Talk about E46 fanatics!

The highway patrol found the car after about a week. They pulled over a guy who was literally driving it like he stole it (90+ And slaloming) on the S 405 down in your neck of the woods. But I didnít want it anymore after that. Put her on Car Gurus after a very complete detail and she sold within 2 hours!

I did mine at 40k and the gap variances were rediculous. Plugs are about $30 each and it takes about an hour to do. I will be doing my plugs every 30k or less just to be safe.

Well plugs changed after 50k miles.
Still has some vibration at idle so back to the drawing board.

Sparks are $13 each at fcpeuro. You can buy 6 once, and then replace them for free every 10,000mi.

I did change sparks in 435 n55 by myself for the first time in life, never had sparks in hands before. So, I would think more than twice about paying $500 for sparks replacement)))
