I've heard rumors of 60 degrees by the end of the week, so I took care of things.

Winter wheels off! Summers on!

My F30 is supposed to be arriving some time near the middle to end of this month. I want it earlier, but I am glad I'll have a buffer for there to be some rain to wash all the sand and remaining salt off the roads.

My M could use a good wash.
We'll see though with the possible rain for Saturday.
I am going to C&C for sure unless it snows.

I changed the pre cat O2 sensores but I need to replace the post cat O2 sensores as well, there is no space at all down there. I'm thinking to take it to a shop to do it fo me.

Do you know guys any good exhaust shop in the twin cities area that could change them?

Thanks in advance,

Get a low profile, offset O2 sensor wrench for the post cat sensors. It's smaller and can fit in there much easier.

It's reasons like this that I both run all season tires and have a truck.

Your new car come in yet?

Nope, it comes ashore in Halifax, Virginia on 4/15 (next Monday). After that it has to go through the prep center at the port, followed by shipping to BMW of Minnetonka. Word is that it could take up to maybe 5 days at the prep center since I am having a port install done with the M Performance carbon fiber rear spoiler. That's likely something that can be done in an hour, but I may have to wait in line to have it done. I am glad that I don't have the car right now, but hopefully in 10-14 days I will get it.
