Did the rear brakes and did oil change. Boring right?.....well I also installed a Stahlbus oil drain plug that never needs to be removed again!!!! Super cool system!!!

http://www.stahlbus.com/info/en/prod...l-drain-valves

To change oil, just take off the cap by hand. No oil comes out until the hose is plugged into the main unit, then the 1foot hose section is run into your bucket with no mess. This is the coolest thing!!! I literally haven't changed my own oil in 15 years, now I don't even need tools to do it.

They need to make a metal housing cap that the lug wrench can be used on.

Great video!

Timeless information...

Oakley Razor blades at 2:24 not so timeless.

My Ride: Fst'r then your e46
Fixed a couple of engine codes due to carelessness of mechanic. Took about 15min of googling and finding out 1 connector is not plugged in, and one connector is plugged in the wrong place

Wanted to give it a nice bath but rain screwed the day up.
