Ok, now I get the for the day. I got my diff fluid, mount, and brake fluid in the mail today. Thought bavauto sent me the wrong diff fluid, so I was pissed. Then I came to realize that ordering parts at 2am with little sleep causes you to miss the little details. Such as fluid weights.

Had to put in a new order, and hopefully they will be here by Sat.

edit: Just walked out to the mail and got my led license plate lights from F1 Authaus. So I feel a little better, plus I'm going to see Transformers 2 later so...

Transporter!! Do your brakes bro! Easiest ones I have ever done. I pulled all the rotors and painted them too, they look HOT

well if anyone decides to jump on the vanos seals i have an unopened valve cover gasket kit.unless i return it for credit towards new brakes.but on that note.id higly recommend just doing the seals anyways.youll notice a huge difference almost immedietly.mine was getting pretty bad though.

Yep, they feel a little funny but I think they are still breaking in. I only have 10 miles on them and I think they are still eating through the coating

I have one but I think it's leaking fluid. Not sure how dependable it is. Let me go check it out.
