Days 4 & 5: New Mexico; The Land of Enchantment

Arriving in Santa Fe (El Dorado) for a brief reprieve from the bikes and was much enjoyed. Plus, Santa Fe also marked the end of the miserable high-mileage super-slab days. What a relief! Plus, it...

This is my first BMW too, so welcome to the club. To answer your question - I don't known if they have changed.

Would it make sense to have the drive shaft and Ujoint rebuilt on parts that already have 80k miles? I opted for the new one thinking it would have better chances of lasting longer than one that is...

JVB, would you recommend making any additional enhancements to help seal the controller? Is there a type of caulk I could use that would handle the heat or am I limited to the infamous o-rings?

Thanks, JVB.

Service performed and price?

Did you get the standard service or did they do a complete rebuild? Either way, how much did it cost in the end (shipping included)?
