An E30 moment

Posted by Earendil 
October 20, 2009 05:22PM
So I'm in Safeway (a grocery store) today when I hear the intercom come on and announce: "could [insert name] come to the phone for a code 1221".
My immediate thought was that somebody had an exhaust problem...


Should I seek help?

For you and anyone else who happens across this thread.
It's possible to read a few fault codes from the computer on an E30.
A code of 1221 is an Oxygen sensor fault, a very common one.

More info and other codes can be found here.

Or using BMW fault codes to describe personal problems?

LOL!
One of the few things I remember from The Dark Night (Batman movie) is that there is an E32 in one of the street shots. Let's arrange group therapy!

The film "Love Actually" has an E30 in a street scene. I think the beemie was parked in front of a jewelry shop. Naturally. That's where I would park too.
