I haven't posted many in a while. Here's two very recent ones. I broke one of my valve cover engine studs doing the gasket a little while ago. Luckily my neighbor basically has a full shop and I made a new stud at his house in about 15-20mins. Unfortunately I had to make one side American size so I marked it red so I'd remember lol.

Mein Auto: 2003 E46 325xi
Hey there, pretty new here

I wanted to share a couple pics of my new 2003 325xi, had her about a month now. Gray green metallic, gray leather interior, only 44,000 miles on the clock. I have since added the matte black kidney grilles, as well as the factory aux install. Looking for suggestions on what to do next! Thanks

Mein Auto: 2005 ZHP, Wife's Prius
Finally had some nice weather so I installed the Xi's old r/c/r tails onto the ZHP and decided to get the tail light ground recall performed.



They gave the engine a once-over and here's their suggestions...posted for s&g's. The thermostat needed a slight tweak, the spark plugs arrive tomorrow from max, and the ofhg get's replaced at the next oil change. I think I will decline those suggested repairs.



Other than the fanciful pricing, Flemmington BMW did the tail light repair with not a hesitation, and washed the car for free.

Probably a remote On/Off for his Angel Eyes. Some of the really spiffy LED setups even have a dial to adjust the brightness of the AEs.
