Possibly the pump relay is bad. Dirty contacts can fuse and/or have a poor connection. Relays in general can “chatter” or “buzz” depending on what’s happening.

Oh yeah! I can fit my entire drum kit inside easily.

Fold the seats and take out the tray and keep a spare VW Rabbit back there.

Interesting. I thought the 328 and M3 used a higher volume fuel pump. I’ve never had any fuel delivery problems using the ti pump but figured I’d “upgrade” when mine failed.

I do keep my fuel...

Normally, the top of the beam cut-off should be equal height to the lens at the car.

Yes I think it’s been posted here before- clutch is is be-otch to bleed. Car needs to be nose-up but even then, you have to wait for the last bit to work out over time.

And I’ve changed those bulbs twice so far (another is out now) and it is accessed by removing only the cluster.

What is the rust situation there? It seems mine rusted due to cracked paint when I rolled the rear openings. Right side is still fine, but left is not good.

They probably pulled radio (aftermarket I assume?) power off the brake light switch, and when the current drops due to lights coming on, the radio reboots.
