323i update with 115k miles

1999 BMW 3 Series 323i 4dr Sedan

Review

Here's an update since my last posting 17k miles ago. I discovered my independent BMW mechanic is a liar,(I followed up on his work). I don't trust dealers either. I have learned to do all maintenance myself. I still have the airbag light on, but will be replacing my seat belt tensioners/buckle and resetting airbag light, apparently this is a common problem to air bag lights coming on. Here is what I have done to the car so far at 100k miles, all done by myself. Replaced all 4 oxygen sensors. Changed out the Automatic transmission lifetime oil with the same,

Best Features

car now shifts like it was new! Spark plugs, by the way use the NGK’s only! Bosch makes great O2 sensors, but not spark plugs. Brakes/Rotors/Pads. Tires. Replaced both drive belts. Of course oil changes every 3-5k miles and filters. Recharged My A/C.

Worst Features

Extra info: Engine light came on, but went away after I replaced the O2 sensors. If you do go to the dealer or shop, make sure they replace those bottom O2 sensors. Jimbo
