Default Now taking Guesses when My UIM fails....

Hey guys, I'm on my original UIM still, I'm bound to replace it next month (broke this month already ) Here'* the info, my car is a L36 (series 2) and it has the crappy UIM (original) and the car has 104425 miles on it, so does the motor too. The Tstat was replaced recently with a 180* unit.Now do you think the UIM will fail this month before I get a chance to replace it?

Place your guesses here when you think it'll give away. Here to help you guess: My driving habits are: drive it every single day, mostly in town (average speed about 40-45) several stoplights and occasionally thick traffic, my take-off are normal and I brake normally. Now I do sometimes a WOT run if the road'* empty and out of town.

Let the games start.

Thanks Rob for the offer, I'll take you up on that sometime but notice I said I'm broke. But let me see if I can pull some strings...Wanna help install the PEMS too?

But just guess anyway. I say maybe 2-3 thousand more and she'* dead.

good call, you can get UIM and gaskets a lot cheaper than other places.
