My Ride: Imola ZHP
Finally found 5 minutes to get on e46F! Crazy busy schedule between full time work, summer school (m-f) and a dental internship...

Oh, a lil help for the strut towers came in yesterday... Ordered immediately after a local e46 zhp friend had his pinch-welds completely fail. Passenger-side of mine has a hairline crack



Excuse the dirty engine bay and crappy iPhone pic. This car has not been washed in over 6 weeks...

Replaced driver side regulator and lubricated the rubbers a little with some Fin25 Teflon (also good for the crankcase as an oil additive)

My Ride: E46 - M3 & 325i
Dropped into 3rd on the highway, and probably scared the shiit out of another E46 doing so

What can I say, my life is exciting.
