1.0 out of 5 stars Defective fuel pressure regulator, June 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
At some point BMW moved the FPR (fuel pressure regulator) from the fuel rail to the fuel filter itself. This is why your fuel filters are now $50 instead of $15.

We had no issues with the 12 year old original filter on our 2002 325xi, but changed it as part of regular service interval. The fuel pressure regulator was defective on the new filter we installed, and caused hard cranking issues and power loss while driving. This is not an easy filter to install, so we had no choice but to drive on a defective filter for a few weeks due to busy work schedules- very frustrating.

This time we bought the OE Keyser unit from here on Amazon. So far so good, no more long cranking issues. Disappointed with the Mahle unit, it was also too long since we ordered it to get a return/refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and gets the job done!, April 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When it comes to replacing parts on your BMW, the rule is go with German OE parts or else you'll end up doing the job twice after the cheaper parts fail. This goes for brake parts, suspension, control arms, etc. Once in a while you get lucky and can use an aftermarket part from China/Taiwan such as URO and save $50. This is one of those times. Took 3 minutes to replace the pump, you really can't go wrong for $7. You should also replace the grommet at the same time for a few dollars more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensitive stomach? These are for you!, April 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In college I experimented with various brands of vitamins, and found GNC mega men to be the best value. Some cheaper brands without time release coating were harsh on the stomach, such as brands found at the supermarket. I currently have a very sensitive stomach thanks to acid reflux, and have avoided supplements and vitamins because they often cause nausea. Decided to try out the smarty pants and they are fantastic! They are all natural, no artificial ingredients and are gentle on my stomach. Love that they include omega 3 so no more fish oil for me. Highly recommend these to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works like MAGIC, but get the larger version, March 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wish I had known about the chimney starter years ago, it is incredible and nothing better than starting coals without nasty chemicals that add chemical flavors to the food. Be sure to stock up on newspaper to use on getting the coals going. Gave it four stars only because it is too small to prepare lump hardwood for a very small smokey joe grill.

I used this small starter all summer by starting one batch, dumping in the grill, and immediately starting a second batch. Took forever! Bottom line, if you are using lump hardwood chunks buy the larger unit so you can fire up one batch of coals and start cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Big Time Money Saver., November 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Beautiful labels, much cheaper than the Avery labels for shipping. I was skeptical of how cheap these were in comparison, but decided to get them with free shipping using an Amazon Prime Trial. I was glad I did- you are not gaining anything by purchasing the expensive Avery labels. These are great and I had no problem with them curling up in the printer has some other reviewers have described. They are shipped in a piece of cardboard that is wrapped around the labels, so if your mail carrier drops or abuses the package the corners of the labels could be easily damaged. The only way these could get better is if they were shipped in a proper box that would prevent corners being damaged for some people (damaged corners= curling up in some printers) like trying to put a wrinkled dollar in a vending machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars 8GB Crucial Ram Kit for Mid 2011 Mac Mini i5, December 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Crucial 8GB ram kit was perfect. Took 6 business days to arrive (free shipping) and was packed well. It takes about 5 minutes to turn off your Mac, open the back cover, and pop in new ram chips. It's so simple anyone can do it, even if you have zero computer knowledge. Check out the $599 mac mini on the apple web site, and upgrade it to 8gb. Apple charges you a mind-boggling $300 for this. Get it done here for $30.

Initially I was disappointed with the performance of the Mac Mini, it had a difficult time opening multiple apps, and even opening iPhoto on it's own was a complete joke. Now, iPhoto opens with hundreds of raw size photos nearly instantly. Just how it should have been straight from Apple. Make sure you order the 10600 1333mhz variety for the new Mac Mini. The slower version of the ram 1066mhz is for last years model (2010).

5.0 out of 5 stars GGS DSLR LCD Protection, January 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A nice product, looks high quality enough to put on your expensive Canon. Has 3M double sided tape around the edges of the protector that stick to your LCD screen. Hopefully this product doesn't interfere with attaching a Z-finder. Fast shipping, came USPS from California to CT in a few days. Great. Probably the best screen protector out there right now for the T2i.
