They were not sure if I had one of the bad belts or not. Well this just proved I had a bad belt. I told them to send me 3 sets of the good belts because I know I could not find these belts at a Auto part store or BMW Stealer Ship. I try my best to be a little pro-active and have the right tools and stuff in my car for long road trips I even take a OEM factory wheel with me for a spare along with a jack . I can't help it I am a mechanic and I don't like to break down
Sorry to hear about the broken belt, but glad you made it back okay. I recently gave up on the Dinan UDP and ordered the AA. I made sure to order an extra belt for this very reason. I'll be sure to keep it in the car.

Definitely. I'm loving the bumper. More aggressive than stock, but OEM appearance, and of course, no reflectors.
