That's why it pays to spend time going through threads to see if there's even one post that will help you. I'm not lecturing but things like warranty and BMW go hand-in-hand, like lamb and tuna fish, it's just common sense...it's one of the first three or four things you should type in the search box before even posting...knowledge is power and you will be respected for at least having done some homework.haha thanks buddy. appreciate it. when searching there is a lot of clutter that comes up sometimes so thought itd be easier to start a fresh one. will research elsewhere.
