    Awesome shop, I love your channel! I’m about to fly out of state to purchase a 2005 330xi manual transmission with only 70k miles! I’m having a local BMW shop do a pre-purchase inspection when I get there and am curious of what I should make sure they look at? I’ve watched a lot of your common issues vids but I really want to communicate with this shop on the most important things to check out. Especially since I don’t know how detailed they can be without taking it apart. Also, what do you think this car is worth? I’ve agreed to pay $10k. I know that’s double the price of a lot of the e46’s but it has half the miles and the sport package and it’s the standard transmission. It came from a single owner that did all the maintenance at the BMW dealer and they have the maintenance records too. Thanks in advance for your advice!!

    The lifts need to be on the right side on the shop,not on the left,so that it face the shop door,and make access easy,I think you should consider moving it.

    Not shop related….just wanted to wish your folks back in NC good luck with that hurricane. I was there for Hugo in the 80s. Good luck mate.

    Hey I have a 2000 BMW 323i like your white ones however it's four door and black. I was wondering what headlights you have? I've been wanting to upgrade to projectors and angle eyes.

    Hey there, great shop tour vlog , And I liked your advice on not needing expensive tools to get the job done. As well as just buy tools as you need them.

    Like Scotty Kilmer… He does car repair on his driveway…. No lift because it keeps him fit to have not one!
