Also, NGK plugs and Mann air filter arrived today, will install tomorrow!
Def not a real difference, im a quarter tank into my first tank of it and all I feel is that the fuel gauge is moving downward smoother

Got my new phone mount in, searched and searched and found it on amazon, never seen one that uses the cd slot as a mounting point, I was a bit skeptical but it actually works great! 24$ well spent! Also got a new phone USB charger with a 2.1 amp port so I can also charge my iPad

That's the same project I'm going to be working on this week end. I tried to find the oil filler seal but couldn't at the time I ordered the other items. Another item I don't have is those small o rings unless there part of the vanos seals

I've had these before, there the best in the business as far as scents go. It's low key and you can tuck it anywhere in the car. (kinda works like a ez pass) just reinforce it with velcro!

Why would you want to change the smell of your car?

Maybe as a cigarette smoker, for the benefit of others and cleanliness reasons I thought it would be good. Also, why would you create an argument over a personal decision?

Since we're talking parts, my starter failed on me today after work. (had to stay in the parking lot for 30mins. before audi techs came and started the car) I work at audi in CT. How much would it cost me to replace the starter?

You might consider an Audi. I hear they make nice cars.

No argument. I was just wondering. My car smells good to me as is.
Personal preference is an important thing. I was just wondering if you
were trying to cover up a smell you did not like, or just liked playing with different smells.

Do you feel a noticeable difference in power with the 330 compared to the 323i? Or is it pretty similar.
