Hi All
I'm new to this forum. 3 months ago I got my second e36 M3 SMG. It's convertible and estoril blue with hardtop. I knew from the start that it will need a bit of work. First observation was very frequent priming of the SMG pump. And as we all know the accumulator needed replacement. I live in Dublin and it did cost me around €800 and I did ity self. My question and I know that we have lots of SMG experts in the forum, is there anyway of getting these accumulators recharged? Or any after market replacements?
I've seen accumulators from febi bilistein and other makers used for brake boosters. Would these fit to our system even with some modifications,?
Just an idea and I'm sure some members here might have an insight or thought of something like that. Let me know what do you think. Thanks a million. Wish you all Happy Christmas and happy New year.
