Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Injector-rehab.com ... no bueno

    I didn’t see any feedback about injector-rehab.com on this section so I thought relevant to pass along my experience on some pintle caps I bought from them for my ix. This is the typical case of being cheap on something critical can turn out to be expensive.

    I recently replaced gaskets, hoses and decided to service the injectors. This time for my ix since it only has 140k miles I only did a basic service and bought o-rings from bmw and filters, spacers, and pintle caps from injector-rehab.com

    Car started all fine with a quiet and smooth running engine for a minute until I noticed a gas leak on injector #1. I had the same issue with my e30 coupe so I went ahead and pulled out the fuel rail and to my surprise the pintle caps separated from four injectors and fell into the intake manifold. How could that be possible, I had to cut through the old caps to remove them and these ones came out that easy.

    I contacted injector-rehab.com and asked them about how they check for product fit and quality and their answer was ... “how do we get hem to fit? because we have been making them for 20+ years and have sold tens of thousands of them.

    So here it is guys. Their pintle caps don’t fit tight enough and result in a lot of play. I hope this feedback helps you decide when servicing injectors.
