Cleaned out the inside of my car again. Nice and clean. I just need to vacuum and clean the leather inside and it will look new.

If anyone else is interested in this look I have one of these bumpers for sale cheap ($100 plus ship?) it's never been mounted but its imperfect from some damage during storage and I widened the cutaway for the exhaust to accomodate my double tip. PM if interested and btw I think it looks great I just wanted a more round, beefier look so going with ACS bumper.

Replaced the head light covers and did an oil change today.

I can't believe how much the new covers make in making the car look newer. I knew the old ones had a lot of pitting and stress cracks... But the new ones make ALL the difference!

While changing the oil and taking the bottom trays off... I found out where all the oil I have been adding betwen changes has been going. I ran across a thread by 330ciandr6... It looks like the OFHG so I ordered a new gasket along with a new CCV and related hoses. I have all the stuff for a cooling system rebuild... I'll just add the OFHG to the list.

Removed my passenger seat and taped up all the squeaky touching plastic surfaces, following this DIY.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=657042

To dark to finish tonight, so tomorrow I'll put the seat back to see how it worked.

same here, my driver side HID went out. Good thing I ordered a new set a few days before since they were getting dull.

If a headlight goes out, are the fogs supposed to go on automatically? I cant turn them off when the switch is on auto.

Then I polished the **** out of the whole car using Turtle Wax Black Detailer. This stuff is magic...
