Installed bimmian e46 mobile dash mount. if you have Galaxy S3, just get the bracket and not the spring loaded holder. The S3 does not fit with a case on. Instead i purchased iBolt xProDock from Amazon and the iBolt AMPS adapter plate. Everything went pretty smooth and installed easily. well here are the pics. Sorry took pics in low light

Cleaned my alcantara steering wheel, shift boot and parking break boot using a Magic Eraser, they all look brand new again... Fixed my bluetooth (cable came undone)...

Probably ordering a back-lit F10 M5 6-speed manual shift knob shortly...

So today it was about 33 out and I decided perfect weather to do a quick wash. After salting my driveway multiple times from the water freezing as it ran down to the street ha it came out good.

Anyway for a quick wash was good i think. Couldn't stand seeing her so dirty!

Since there is no snow in forecast for a week, gave my car a mid winter full wash and wax. Took me 3 hours to wash and wax every corner.
But now the is shining. The wax should be good for the whole winter now.

That was awfully nice of you, my brothers wouldn't think of trying that with me at that age! Now I bet you can get him to wash it anytime....in the snow and all! Lol

The rear looks fine but the front has a good size gap. Let's just call it a 2x4.

Rear Brakes

Did a temporary rear brakes pad and rotors, using "economy" parts from the local auto-parts store, due to a sticky puck on the drivers side that toasted the pad. The plan is to buy a brake kit from either Pelican/Bavarian Auto when Tax Refund comes and replace all the calipers, and brake lines.

Really thinking of h&r sport springs. I'm looking to just delete that unsightly front wheel gap. Any rubbing issues with your setup?
