You should take the license plate holders off unless they're paying you to advertise for them. It's always been a pet peeve of mine that unless they'll pay you to advertise for them by putting it on, get it the fuck off

Doesn't really bother me. Besides, they're stainless steel and they look good.

You can take it off and screw right to the car. It's doesn't do anything and you don't spend any money, you throw it away

It amazes me how long BMW has been cramming that engine into cars.

I just had one of those engines apart not to long ago replacing the engine breather/oil separator valve. A part that on an american car costs 10 bucks cost the BMW customer something like a thousand dollars.

2nded. I took that shit off my car when I got it. Just a much cleaner look with less distraction, I could care less about the advertisement.

if you could care less about the advertisement, why did you remove it? seems like I'm the one who could care less since i didnt remove mine. you obviously cared since you did

For Mike:

I found out what that thing is by the windshield fluid reservoir (to the left of the engine if you're looking at the front of the car. It's a secondary air pump.

secondary air pump: the secondary air injection system was adapted to support the efficient function of the catalytic converter. The original air injection point became known as the upstream injection point. When the engine is cold, air injected at this point cleans up the extra-rich exhaust and raises the temperature of the exhaust so as to bring the catalytic converter to operating temperature quickly. Once the engine is warm, air is injected to the downstream location — the catalytic converter itself — to assist with catalysis of unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide.


and more...

Secondary air system monitor

Automatic monitoring is carried out to ensure that the secondary air system is functioning correctly. For this purpose, operation of the secondary air injection and of the shut-off and air switch-over valves must be monitored each time they are activated. The secondary air injection serves as an exhaust gas treatment during the engine warm-up phase. For this purpose, fresh air is injected directly into the exhaust manifold to ensure the catalytic converter heats up at a faster rate.
Depending on the exhaust requirement, the air volume blown into the secondary air system is measured by means of the secondary hot-film air-mass sensor.
Shortly after the engine is started, the secondary air pump is activated by the SLP relay. The time until it is switched on is dependent on the following fringe conditions:
- Engine temperature
- Load signal
- Engine speed
Monitoring principle

The oxygen sensor voltage is monitored in the engine control module during activation of the secondary air pump
. During problem-free operation of the secondary air system, the oxygen sensor voltage is primarily in the lean range.
At regular intervals (every 20 ms), the oxygen sensor voltage is registered within the control module. Each measurement in which the oxygen sensor voltage is registered as being in the lean range is counted by an internal counter. If this count exceeds a predefined threshold, the system is recognized as being fully operational. If this threshold is not reached the engine control module assumes there is a fault in the secondary air system. An entry is made in the fault memory.

Did you uninstall it or something? People do because they can't stand it when their cars sound like a vacuum cleaner just after they start it up.

No, just never seen one before. I'm new to this whole non-American car thing...I don't know what everything under the hood is.

Put in a K&N air filter today.
