Exclamation New e46 owner - recommend Ottawa shops please!

Hi,

I recently got a 2003 BMW 325i auto.

It needs a new thermostat, there is a fault in the secondary air pump system, and I am getting the infamous "clunk" sound from 2nd to 1st (seems to be a software problem).

I plan on replacing the thermostat and diagnose the secondary air pump this upcoming weekend.



I was hoping to get some advice on a shop that would be able to do the software update?

And also any places/websites to get parts from (other than rockauto.com)? I'd prefer a Canadian site.

Thank you in advance!

RPM Motorworks on richmond road.

As for parts, ECS Tuning (us site, but they ship to Canada). or you can ship to ogdensburg and pick them up there
