My E46 chassis (2004 CCI convert) is lovely. I luv the darned thing but BMW bit me hard the other day. After zero problems and less than 50,000 miles, "brake" light lit on dash with warning light in center. Dealer said it might mean brake pads. The say, "code found hydro unit for ABS and sensor internal malfunction" Est cost $3,700 because warranty expired two months ago (my fault for not tracking). Girl went on the say it would take two weeks just to get the parts because there are only two units in USA. Car is drivable but no ABS, they say. I want to get the car fixed so I can ethically and legally get rid of it. Auto trans with no warranty is too big a risk for this guy. Live in Ocean City MD but can get to Annapolis or DC area.
