Look foward to it man, the previous owner to my car did nothing as well. I got it at around 60K so I had to do a whole lot once I found out what bimmers need to have done at 60K plus run of the mill service

Yup, by the way. You don't have to quote me. Just takes up more space, lol.

Isn't using a video DIY much more easier in a way? You can physically see what is done.

I'm doing this either today or tomorrow. I don't have a video camera though ... Maybe I can use my digital camera, I know it has video mode, but I'm not sure how much memory that takes ...

that's cool vent..no offense, there are a decent amount of pic diy's of VCG. I'd say, don't waste your time, unless you really want to do it. in video mode, it may take a while, you just hit the highlights of each step. like for the removal of 10mm nuts, you say it, do one and then say, "14 more to go" a cliff note video.

I'm doing the VCG, since you asked I thought I might as well film it. I don't know if I will. We'll see.

Nice Jake! I see you got your own spark plug socket...how much did it end up running you?

I was tempted to do mine at the meet up in Wayne, but it was hot as all get out.

Thanks for the video Jake! I'm changing my spark plugs for the first time today and it really cleared things up for me.
