Beautiful car. If that was mine, I'd put some sport pedals on, and yes I'm biased. Mine were from ECS, you just drill directly into the existing pedals once the rubber covers come off.

It probably isn't black either. I'm not being sarcastic, but yeah I think black paint leads a tough life in AZ. I can't really tell, but it looks like a combination of scratching, bird poop...

I think it's closer to about $47. 6 pack of Mobil 0w40 is $38. My choice of Pennzoil Ultra Euro LL-01 is a little more at $42 even after the subscription discount. It's still under $50 for the...

Yes, stick shifts are rare, I know, I looked around for a long time. If it's 10-15 year ownership, then you can be a little more patient in finding one, it will be worth it in the end. As you know,...

I think that is a severely gross overstatement about "30K". I think some would even say that it's still a gross overstatement at 60K. I change my brake fluid, coolant, PS fluid, plugs, oil, pretty...

Yes, brake bleed every two years. Any decent indy shop can do it. Uses DOT 4. I choose BMW OEM, about $4 per bottle or so.

Recommendation is to change the brake fluid every 2 years. A few do it more often, particularly those who track their cars, and a few wait longer. I do mine slightly more frequently than the...

Sorry for the delay. I've obtained mine from multiple sources, I think DD, AG, and maybe more.

All of mine are the Mercury Pro + I believe, which is overkill for most of my uses. I don't need...

I haven't used it due to price, but some would say the answer to that question is Krytox made by Dupont.

No worries about what sealant goes with what wash....
