Luck...
The best guess in my situation was that something shorted given that it had just rained. The question is what, why, and will it happen again :/

Answer to all your questions: YES

- Yes, rear fogs came standard in Mexico...
- Yes, it is in kph
- Yes, needle is on the left, I think thermostat is tucked open, it only gets the 75-85C in the city... in highway it downs up to 65-68C... low mpg...

I have a new thermostat, VANOS seals and VCG ready to be replaced... I hope to be done this long weekend..!!

Belts

I changed my belt 2 days ago take a look at the old belt . Felt a difference immediately post change. OOh yeah I got my hands on some used ACS pedals from a homie that had them on his X5 so now I have an OVERSIZED Foot rest panel (Fits E60's too). Thinking of selling or swapping for the 3 series foot rest I was extremely busy afterwards and yesterday to post. Today I plan to FINALLY install the 2nd bank pre-cat O2 sensor and then black out my exterior trim with Plasti Dip

I'm waiting on a few answers from another post I wrote today. the new sensor got a lil bit of anti seize on it (from taking the plastic cap off... I suppose) I wiped it off just a lil worried that its ruined now.
