Does it change over time since my snows are still in very good shape and other sets have gone many more miles? I would say I'm due for another bushing overhaul front and rear.

Any issue with running conti sprort 2's Extra Load on E46 sedan?

I'm looking at a set of 235/40 18 Conti sport 2's.

They say Extra Load on the sidewall?

Any issue running them on an E46 sedan?

Thanks,
Steve

looks great! Are those 18"'s Staggered? Don't appear to be. I'm considering 18" staggered for my steel gray sedan.

It's a 2001 325. I guess my thought was that the Mobil 1 is a thinner oil and it found it's way out, but who knows. Only BMW/Castrol has been used before the Mobil 1.

Could switching to Mobil 1 cause valve cover leak?

The last oil change I did I moved from BMW oil to Mobil 1 0w-40. Could this have caused my valve cover gasket to leak? I have about 77k miles.

Thanks,
Steve

yea, I see what you are saying. I guess YMMV, but I was happy to find this, as I it seemed a better way. The hardest part was getting the fan off without the "Special Tool".
