Re: Touch-up Paint Question

Clearcoat... no not really. I just use the coloured bottle and it looks pretty good. I am as anal as the next guy. Toothpick is a good idea.

I think it is the other way round... I am sure my 330Ci has the ZF.

Re: Rebuild changes

Cool... it was a really rare opportunity to get rid of any last minute regrets!

If so... what did you change?

Re: Re: Re: when doing the "J" Turn
