Anybody in the SF Bay Area who thinks detailing a car is less work than an oil/spark plug change: You're most welcome to come to my garage and I'll very competently change your plugs, oil and air filters while you detail my car.

Lol black car? Try detailing a tuxedo black 2015 F150 Lariat Sport Supercrew. Just washing the damn truck is never good enough, you have to chamois it dry. And don't get me started on the yellow tree pollen. And I can never wash the truck in the sun, by the time I rub one area with cloth and soap, the previous area dries up lol, what a nightmare.

First world problems? Yes lol

Not new to the forum, but first time posting.

Wheels are MRR GT7

20x8.5 +35 offset (Front) - 245/35/r20
20x10 +42 offset (Rear) - 275/30/r20

Retrofitted from 6.5" to 8.8" screen HU_Entrynav. I bought the entire HU_NBT with iDrive controller. Couldn't get NBT to work. Wouldn't power on the screen display. Thinking I must need replacement wiring since I was trying to use existing.

I know the struggle. And it doesn't matter what you do. Use the two bucket method? Rinse the wash mitt thoroughly? Only wash in a back and fourth pattern? Well too bad, because that mofo is still gonna have scratches.

Installed the H&R rear sway bar on my 2017 F31. Took 8.5 hours and it sucked a lot, but initial impressions are that it's more neutral and flat through corners. This job *sucked*

Well at least you can feel the difference, worth it?

Hard to tell, I didn't want to get after it on the drive home with all of my tools in the back. Will test it out tomorrow, though!

I couldn't help myself, so I took the F31 out to play around. Can confirm, the H&R rear sway bar is a huge PITA to install, but it now handles like my e46 did! Understeer is definitely less pronounced, and it exhibits a hint of lift-off oversteer mid-corner. Definitely makes the car feel more playful, without creating an unnecessary amount of harshness. Will keep you guys updated.

I miss my E46 it was fantastic, if it gives that feeling I'm in. Thanks

I wish that I could provide a DIY, but I did a piss-poor job of taking photos. Best advice I can give is to dive into TIS and use the certified maintenance procedures. Also I can't emphasize enough how much effort it took to snake the old bar out / new one in. The rear subframe has to be lowered, and even then you're stuck working with an incredibly tight space to maneuver the bar in/out. In hindsight, I should have planned to make this a multi-day job, but it can be done in one.
