    PPI in the Napa area anyone???

    Howdy folks!

    Yes, been a while, sorry but hanging on another board these days, 6er specific...

    And speaking of which, I am taking a long hard look at a very pretty 88 M6 up in Napa! Looking to arrange for a PPI up there so it's easier on hte seller. Anybody have this done in the area and can direct me to the shop or location? Owner really does not want to drive it too far for this purpose, so please don't tell me about a great shop you know in Sactown, Viv :)

    Cheers, Bobbo

    Hey Bob, did you find a shop?

    It's been so quiet here I haven't checked the messages in a while.

    Hey Viv! Why yes I did . . .

    right in Napa, Alpina "auto repair", or whatever it is...

    Turned out that not only did the car need plenty (88 M6), the owner did not even wash or vacuum out the car!!! So to say that I was disappointed would be an understatement :(

    Long story short, decided that I did not need another project right now and was in no position to start sorting thru an M6 either. So, ole greeny is still with me, still "well sorted" in her own right and sitting in my garage, covered as usual :)

    Some day I will "finish" the house and get back to what I love the most, playing with 6ers :)

    Hope you are well!
    Cheers, Bob

    Too bad it didn't work out, but sounds like

    you have enough to do for now. All is well here. Summertime brings on many new adventures around our house.

    Agreed, plenty of "adventures" . . .

    and things to do other than work!

    Plus I've always got something to do on the 6er, she is 27 years of age after all...

    BTW, you appear to have a very sweet version of E39 there! If you ever decide to part with her, please let the "locals" know first :)

    Thanks!
    Cheers, Bob

    Thanks. I'm planning on keeping her for at

    least 60K more miles. She came off warranty in March so now I'll be taking her to independent shops for repairs. There is a local club member who works at a small shop. I'm going to take it there in Aug. to get the oil changed, and probably the transmission fluid changed. It seems to be the consensus to have the tranny fluid changed by 50k-ish even tho BMW says it's a lifetime fluid.
    Are you going to the 6er festivities in Sept(?)?
