Shifting problems solved...

Last week I couldnt get into gear easily and if I got it into gear, I couldnt get out of gear. Just got it back from the shop and I had the clutch master and slave replaced. He also replaced the clutch pedal bushing (?). He showed me the old pars and they were pretty worn. Now my floppy clutch pedal feels perfect, and shifting is smooth as silk. Gonna fix the oil leaks and then do the 5 speed swap....gonna be a busy year for the 02!!!

I have 2 shops I use in Orange County when I cannot do the work. For both Master and slave replacement and pedal box repair it cost me just over $300. Parts were $160, labor $150. Black Forest BMW did the work. My motor install was done by Coast Motor Works. They are AMAZING. Not as close to me as Black Forest, but they are super detailed and do an amazing job. The owner has MANY 02s and is very knowledgable about the cars. Hope that helps people here in SoCal. In Fullerton there is Ronin which is basically an 02 shop with lots of knowledge including their 02 race cars...if you are farther that way, thats where I'd take mine. Just a caveat for any shop. I ALWAYS do my research on what I THINK the problem is, let them confirm it, and compare the parts prices with Ireland Engineerings prices and if they are not in line, I supply the parts myself. Randy at Black Forest has been super friendly with that. He also has saved me in the middle of jobs, couldnt get the rear hub bolts off when I was doing the rear brake upgrade, so he loosened them for me. When I was doing my front springs and shocks upgrade the nut on the strut tube was on so tight I couldnt get it...took him the strut assembly and he put some heat to it and put it on the vice and got it loosened. He never charges me for stuff like that. So he is my go to guy when I am doing it myself and I get stuck, or some jobs, I just take it to him and he's very reasonable on the price. He always has 02's and old coupes on his lot that he's fixing...so thats a good sign. Just dont be in a hurry! I get the best service when I can leave it an extra day or so.
