I'm new to MINIs, but so far outmotoring.com has been my go-to source. Aaron has been more then helpful on several occasions. I'll continue to give him my business and would recommend anyone do the same.
Thank you.I use this on my 98 BMW 740iL (with a bad paint job). This product works.Now I can clean it
I've made numerous purchases and have been satisfied with all of them.
My only disappointment has been my purchase of the black gas cap cover. The color has faded big time and I've owned it less that 6 months.
This was a fairly difficult replacement. You remove the exhaust sensors, turbo heat shield and downpipe heat shield, then the downpipe itself, and finally another heat shield right against the engine block. This oil line isn't shaped like the one that comes out so pay attention to the routing path of the one you remove. Also this oil line has fittings on either end that have to be tightened once the bolts have been installed and you are happy with the hoses position. If you don't tighten then oil sprays everywhere...not that I'd know...and I certainly didn't do it twice. Tightening these fittings is kind of tricky, as you tighten then the preformed ends rotate out of position, you fight it from rotating out but will fail...I really hope these fittings don't break loose while I'm driving down the road, kind of a bad design.
Advantages: The part fits and solves the leaking turbo oil line
Disadvantages: No install instructions left me unaware of the hose end fittings so I got to disassemble the down pipe assembly 3 times...I hope they hold.
