Its all about the oil temp.

Don't let your car sit and warm up. Drive it gently until it warms up. And just because the water temp needle is in the middle, doesn't mean ****. The water temp has nothing to do w/ the oil temp....

FS: Predator Chromium DDEs.

I got these in late august. I had a problem with the light clips getting loose. I tried hot glueing the clips back on, but decided that I really didn't want to screw with it anymore. I took it off...

Totally agree.

The point was simply that it is not easy or cheap.

No offense meant at all, but if you are using terms like "the iron things that support them", you are probably not a master mechanic :). It can be done for sure as this guy did:

Sorry for the ignorant question.

What EXACTLY constitutes a "facelifted" coupe? I see this term tossed around all the time, but I must have missed the day of school where it was defined. :)

Predator Chromiums on 04 M3

So, some of the guides say that you have to bake the headlight "when necessary". I assume this is to melt the glue so you can unclip the plastic cover? How do I know if it is "necessary" for an 04...

Apples to oranges

An SMG is not an Auto. SMG to manual comparison is more appropriate. But, SMG would be my choice.

yes and no

The fronts will fit w/ no problem. The rears won't fit at all. Get 4 front wheels and I think you should be ok. I know this is true for the 18s anyway.

My opinion..

Without seeing the damage, its tough to say.

Best case: You slightly bent 1 valve. You will need a new valve, a valve job, misc parts/gaskets, and labor to do all the work. Maybe $700-800? ...

Sorry man.

Depends on how much you overreved and for how long. Unfortunately, it is probably much worse than a head gasket. Depending on how bad it was, you could have bent one/many valves, and/or...

What to use.

In my opinion, the Spineybeck stuff that you can get from leatherz.com is the best...but thats my opinion and everyone is probably going to disagree. For the interior, Lexol Vinylex works great.
