Good to know!
1. Changing out all my coils and sparks
2. Replacing precat o2 sensor
3. Replacing gears in both throttle actuators (diagnosed to be slowly failing so want to try swapping out the gears before purchasing whole new TAs)

I have all these parts coming in next week. Let me know if you can work on my car and your direct contact . Thank you.

Just sent you an e-mail as well. I could also use some help with my M5 (I'm in SF, but down in Campbell fairly frequently). Thanks!
