I take my iPad with me to the porcelain thrown so that I can watch BMW TV on YouTube. Is that bad?

You make a thread asking for advice, then sit there and compulsively hit f5 every 10 seconds waiting for a reply. Then get all crazy when there's been like 10 views and no replies...... Lol, that's what I'm doing RIGHT NOW.

When you spend 4 times the value of the car, on the car, because you love it so damn much.

ask me how i know
Two months in to owning mine and I already had this happen to me. Completely took apart the engine bay for a cleaning, took the front off to refresh the headlight lenses, did an oil change, took out the windshield washer tank for a deep cleaning, detailed it twice so far. Washing the rims twice a week.

Every time my neighbours walk by i'm working on the car. It's an amazing conversation starter, they just walk up and ask what's going on because it looks like it's always in pieces - yet I drive it fully assembled every day.

You keep the parts you replace in a box instead of throwing them away. Might be the only one on this one
