Dont forget the bushes etc when the springs are fitted. Brake overhaul? Shame if it doen't stop. Sump off, clean, fill with kerro and see where the leak is. Is it a 2 part sump like the 318? Guess what - both parts off for the clean and leak check. Weld and true up as required. Deburr + LIGHTLY countersink all holes. New gaskets with Loctite 515. Leak = history.
Belt noise - new belts and glaze-bust the pullies with 1000 wet and dry.
Good - Fast - Cheap: Pick any two.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
