Welcome to the 5-Series DIY Forum...

And welcome to vietsb as the forum moderator...






I also want to call everyone's attention to the quintessential
e39 DIY site, BMWTIPS.com.

Pssst. Check out the irc BMW chat networks they've got
going over there too...

P.S. watch out for the guy named 'wolf'...

HOLA!

Now, I just need to post ~950 more times to get a cool avatar under my name.

I'm gonna start making a list of E12, E28, E34, E39, and (gulp) E60 Do-It-Yourself sites. If anyone has some favorites, please pass them my direction so I can refer other folks as well.

I posted my intro here if anyone wants to take a gander.

I hope to see folks post their DIY experiences here, to other BMW forums, and to model-specific sites like BMWTips.com.

Yeah, I know. But I plan on doing it the old-fashioned way. Just got one step closer!

Speaking of privileges...

When you gonna give us the privilege of visiting Casa'de'Agent99 for some CDV liberation? I'm gonna be gone the last weekend in May, but otherwise, I can work my schedule around your "soon to be" announced date.

Hey, do you know how Jon did the sticky for your CDV post on the 5-Series forum? Or do you have to be a super-mod to do that? I'd like to post a "DDIY-LADIFYFKK" sticky when you actually pick a date.

(Don't Do-It-Yourself - Let Agent99 Do-It-For-You For KrispyKremes)

PS - I still have a $125 arbor pilot bit w/ your name on it.
