Sound Great! how about fuel filter is it extra for the E46 330? Is it 2 years warranty on your parts and labor replacement too? I know a shop they have a stardard policy just like dealer, give out 2 years warranty with parts and labor. But price are lower then dealer, but higher then what you charge for the inspection service. But I think you can offer the same warranty too?

Fuel filter replacement is included with all of the Inspection II prices we've listed above.

As for warranty we match the dealer, which is 1 year parts. There is no labour warranty, here or there.

Thanks for the quick respond, it is a great, but youo only give one year on parts warranty, if is the defacted parts I have to paid the labor! For that shop they do have the labor and parts NO CHARGE for the WARRANTY period. If you don't mind I can post the company name for our maxbimmer members

I'd rather you not try to advertise another business in our sponsor section.

Our goal is to match the dealer's service, at approximately 1/3rd of the price. We hope max members can appreciate just how great of a deal that is on its own.

I assume that z4m would be under the category of e46m3 price?
once my mcoupe arrive, I would like it to have inspection II done including valve adjustment. Right now I am trying to pressure dealer to pay for the inspection ii.

A few of the unique M Coupe parts cost more, but we'll honour the same price as the E46 M3. Really I just like that car a lot.

Let me know when you're ready.
