    I installed a Garmin Drive 51....Also, I touched up most tiny road rock dings with TUPAINT-4083-JARBMW - Steel Blue Metallic - 3721. Oil is changed (Castrol) with correct viscosity, Mann filter....and recommended BMW tire pressure for front - rear Michelin tires for the e46 wagon. I cannot drive this car. It is parked inside of a garage since March of this year. The state of Connecticut has undergone MAJOR state government budget cuts....I have been trying to register this 325xi for now 3 months and with no success. The Connecticut DMV needs a total rehab....and with new people with new and positive attitudes to the TAX payers who pay their salary................Currently, Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles.....is a hostile, offensive, poorly managed, Connecticut institution of classic bureaucracy filled with arrogant, rude and offensive employees. Average wait time is 4 to 6 hours....if your door number was recognized and forwarded to be called....after waiting outside in the rain with 150 other people!

    Really not mu

    Hi, Joe. I'm in Barre. Where in Vermont are you, and who does your paint work?

    I finally removed the CDV on my 330xi 6MT. It was a tad more difficult due to the FWD apparatus. Took it for a quick spin and, lo and behold, I'm not quite as bad at driving standard as I thought--shifts are just smoother and, I guess, predictable. Upon further driving, I also notice both my clutch and brake pedals are firmer with more immediate and constant resistance--must've eliminated a little air in there when I bled it. I'm definitely going to get rid of it on my ZHP next.

    I changed the Rubber Boot for the ICV. Kept getting a random P1500. It's a new ICV so I know it wasn't stuck open. Should have done it when I replaced the original ICV a few weeks ago. Committed to the job after pulling the original apart trying to remove it.

    Reconditioned leather seats, glued piece of headliner back up, wrapped some interior pieces in carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Lookin purty. I tried installing LED ZEVO turn signals but they hyperflash and it says that they're out. Don't really know how to install a resistor... 

    Fixed rotted seals on finishing trim of my M3. Key was to trim the feet of the weather stripping. $30 instead of @$800 from dealer.

    No kink no hose or tubing used. A little soapy water to help milk it throught the clamp that held in the rotted out piece.

    Replaced right front control arm (took 6 hours), front tires, got 4 wheel alignment, cabin filter, and installed Type S Exterior LED strips on front bumper and around the radiator fan so it'll glow through the grille. Ordered Eagle Eye smoked LED tail lights, new headlight lenses. Oh! and I also scraped my bumper at a gas station.

    Had some rust spots fixed by a local body shop (right and left rear fenders, of course, and a spot on the right, rear door sill). Next, I need to replace some undercarriage splash guards that are damaged and an engine compartment hood seal I noticed is missing. Oh yeah, I had to replace a left turn signal bulb... oddly, the right one started intermittently failing right replaced the left one...

    Got Takata airbags replaced at a local BMW dealer, ordered a new key, and replaced the rear speakers.

    Finally replaced my band-aided kidney grilles. Matte black looks AWESOME with satin black Arc-8's. These $23 Chinese, Ebay specials look fantastic, seem as sturdy as OEM (if not more so), and fit perfectly. I'm glad my ECS order never shipped--saved $57!
