I've cleaned the connectors and all others around the TB just to be sure I'm getting the two. The car doesn't do it as often, but once a while will still either shut down or hesitate on acceleration. I'm guessing I'd have to replace one or the other at this point (or both...).

Well, it's not Mazda Specific. I inteded to use it on one of my RX-7's. I believe it was a Bosch or Denso, it was a universal since (at the time) mazda RX-7 OEM one was like $50+ and I got this for $30, I trust either name whichever one it is. If BMW has make and/or model SPECIFIC fuel filters then I'll go an order one, otherwise, I don't see the harm here from using universal filters.

What is it that you're trying to reset? Just your Oil service light? I found a great diy, can be done in 3 minutes

Just wondering if a 94 318is icv is interchangeable with a 98 328is?
Also, experiencing the rear passenger side of the carpet flooding with water, any ideas?
