**Your Most Recent E46 Related Purchase**

Here's the game. What was your latest E46 related purchase (gee, just like the title, who'd've thought).

It can be anything from Air freshener to Wheels to Forced Induction...whatever, let us know.

My recent purchase, though nothing really exciting, was new fluids for my fair lady.

Photobucket

Yeah, I was randomly looking on the forum for a set of wheels for the wife's car... couldn't pass that up, especially since my rear tires are nearly bald and I didn't want to pay for 4 tires yet (I want to switch over to Bridgestone or Dunlop, but will not run mismatched tires and don't want to throw away my fronts with half their life left).

I'm very glad I no longer run a staggered setup! (but I didn't rotate like I should have)

An oil filter/7 qts Castrol/bolt & washer kit from ECS, to go with the MytiVac purchased from Amazon.com last week, which literally drained the oil in fifteen minutes. But did I quit there? Noooooooo, I just had to raise it and put it on jackstands and pull the plug so see how much oil the MytiVac didn't pull out. And... not a drop was left. None. Then I measured how much oil it drained... right at 7 quarts in the MytiVac. So, it took over an hour and a half total. Eeeeeeeeasy! I will never darken a dealer or indy's door for oil changes ever again...

I've read pros and cons and I'm not going to hijack the thread, I promise... but man, that MytiVac is the best thing I've spent money on since that memorable night at The Lodge for a friend's bachelor's party last June...

My most recent purchase: "rear wiper pivot assembly." My life became much better once I figured out what that stupid thing was called, and I found that it would only cost $72.95 to fix my rear wiper. Had I continued to allow it to strain the motor every time I turned the wiper on, I would have soon been buying the $300 motor. Part should be here tomorrow - living an hour from Bavauto is fantastic, order today it arrives tomorrow, regular shipping!
