In which I contribute to a college fund…

I love my “classic” BMW. By “classic” I mean old, of course. It’s a great car and a ton of fun to drive.

I just hate that it cost an arm and a leg every time I even drive by a mechanic.

The poor girl is in the shop today for a fuel pump and filter. I may have to sell Sox or a kidney to pay for it. Or one of Sox’s kidneys.

But on the plus side, I’m sure my mechanic’s son will go to a very nice school…

  1. “But on the plus side, I’m sure my mechanic’s son will go to a very nice school… ”

    or your mechanic will have a very nice boat.

  2. Well Jeez, Brad, I already told you about my parts guy.

    Assuming I remember correctly what year your car is …

    Fuel filter – Bosch – $10.17 (The Mann unit is a little more if you want to go that route: $13.38.)

    In-tank fuel pump – $185.59. (The seal ring is another $5.15.)

    Fuel booster pump – Bosh – $233.39

    It’d take you a total of about 4-5 hours, maximum, to do the work yourself.

  3. A wag once said that depending on which side of the counter you are standing on BMW either stands for “Break My Wallet” or “Bi#*H Moan Whine.”

    Best,
