1997 BMW 3 Series 318is 2dr Coupe


Took my car to S.F. BMW for a 60k check
up. I was told that the cost would be
They then took of new wiperblades and
replaced them etc. alot of hidden costs.
They told me that the radiator was
leaking and said that it with
the "plastic waterpump and thermostate
housing" at a cost of 3800. I took the
car to a independent shop who informed
me that the production date of my car
indicated that it would not have the
plastic waterpump.
If you need parts for your BMW try the
Partsbin.com they sell OEM and after
market parts.
