Vacuumed and Armor All-ed the interior...finally. Idk why, but sitting in a clean car is just so mind clearing. Replaced the sparkplugs also. Soon I'll be doing another oil change, and with that, doing the transmission fluid as well.

MikeT325ci just helped me change my oil with the help of his extractor. Quick and easy, added Genuine BMW 5W-30. Thanks for the help, Mike.

I thought it looked pretty awesome. Very original and very well done. One of the better things at that riceburner fest.

Really feel the difference if you shift in "manual" but for Sport Drive its also great.

As far as gas mileage can't really see a difference. But the price was right, and the sound.

What kind and how much did u pay and from where?

Checking everything for another 640 miles drive back to Denver today.
Only tire pressure seemed to have lessened by 5 psi on one tire from the same drive on Friday.

Looking forward to the drive back home but the road through KS is just plain boring.

My Ride: so turbo wow
460 mile trip, car performed admirably. I got there one full tank of gas. No overheats, no CEL, nothing out of the ordinary. It's good to validate your hard work like that

My Ride: '11 135i 6MT
I've had a crazy last few days. On thursday I drove to the Bay Area, on Friday I drove back down to San Diego. Over 1000 miles in 48 hours. Friday evening I mounted my 'track' wheels and tires and yesterday I had an awesome day of autocross. My car hasn't had a single hiccup or issue through any of it. Shocking considering it has 145,000+ miles and an automatic transmission.

Just finished prepping my car for the 1000 mile round trip to Bfest. Topped off the fluids, washed, vacuumed, and took out most of the unnecessary stuff.

Cleaned and conditioned the leather, smells like new bimmer. Also, cleaned the wheels and decided I finally need to swap for ceramic brakes
