Today... Installed the little plastic screw cover in which I paid $8USD to cover the retaining screw in my CD43 and consider myself a proper fool for spending an hour trying to figure out how my new caliper retaining clips go on.

Awesome! Did you do anything to reward your car in celebration? Maybe vacuum and wash? Perhaps a fresh waxing?

I hit it as I was pulling up to my house. So it's still on the 200.

she does need a good vacuum. maybe even a wax to represent a pat on the back.

and people make fun of me saying BMW's are unreliable.

Replaced the front suspension components, got an alignment, and tire rotation. Used small amounts of tacky glue on the headliner til I can make an appointment for its replacement.

Next: Oxygen Sensor, Muffler, and Iridiums, 2 Custom Pieces to be cut to wrap around leather on door panel (around pockets).

Just making sure you don't have directional tires. If so, they'll have an arrow on the sidewall showing which way they're supposed to turn.

Besides, I thought I remembered seeing this:




And I was right.

I think that's it. I know my car needs it because my wife's honda accord feels stiffer!!!
Finished the suspension upgrade, had most of it done at a local shop as I don't have all the tools. What a change!!! the car rides great, everything is tight. Its very firm and the NVH is a bit more, but not unexpected given all the upgrades. Also, the good news is that my subframe is in good shape, no cracks, etc. The car sits about the same height as before, but that's ok since I have to deal with the snow here. In all, well worth it. Now I need some performance slicks, any suggestions..

Before the weekend I replaced my RTABs w/ RE blacks. Today I'm going to replace my nose panel! My 323 will finally look decent! I'm also going to remove the 323 emblem

Changed the oil (Mobil Delvac 1300 15w-40) and the fuel filter (Bosch). Also did the Golf Tee Mod. Car feels so much happier.
