Oh this is very nice! Thank you for putting this together.

sick.boy1986 05-03-2010 01:46 PM

This was a long time coming, it's funny because I was thinking about how there should be stickies in here with technical data/DIYs instead of just "the pic of the day"...
Maybe that pdf I posted, and the one I linked to from another member should be stickies as well? :4ngie: Thanks for putting this together.

MrAdam 05-03-2010 02:25 PM

Big thanks!

Does anyone have a DIY with camshaft sensor replacement that is M3 specific? In particular the intake side?

///matth 05-07-2010 09:55 AM

Great post... how about a DIY to replace springs/gear position sensor in SMG, anyone tried it themselves?
