    I recently noticed that my ICB boot had a tear in it so I quickly ran to the autozone to pick one up for my car. The Installation on it felt near impossible at first because the little arm would not bend well and it kept popping out so instead I grabbed my ripped boot and lodged a smaller hose...

  3. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys, I just did something crazy and potentially stupid, I bought a reconstructed title, 2005 645ci manual transmission a few hours ago.

    Hey guys! More questions as always! Just ordered my jb4 and the b58 intake as well. First, has anybody tuned their 340 yet? Any results/opinions?

    Replacing the factory 245/45r19 Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RFT, which are 102V rated.. The tire variety goes down drastically at that rating or higher in that size. Will going down to 98V have an impact (noise, stability, control, steering, response, etc)? I am thinking about the Pirelli Cinturato...
