I don't know how you had a tough time with the top nuts, as I found the process extremely easy.

Strange about the vibration. I don't think you need a new trans, though. You probably installed...

Some of the eBay fog lights are garbage, and others are as good as OEM. So in other words, it depends... Which ones specifically are you looking at?

Hmm, I'm surprised it's that high. Doesn't look bad, imo, just higher than expected.

The drive shaft center support bearing could be on its way out. It could also be a failing drive shaft u-joint, or flex disc. Once you have 100% verified that your wheels are properly balanced,...

Yes, the M3 LSD will bolt directly into your car with no modifications, but the seller is asking $50-100 too much for what they are worth. They typically sell for $300-350.

I don't know what the hard reset is referring to. Also, is your car an E36 or E46? I'm pretty sure the '99 323i was actually the E46 body style, and the E36 didn't come with xenon headlights from...

Personally, I wouldn't bother trying to paint the bumper yourself unless you invest money in a bunch of nice equipment. I just depends on what your standards are.
