Went to bed at 5am.
By 11:00am had already changed diverter valve spring rates in Ryan's car.

Next: lunch, debugging some issues on another car, and then off to Ramin's.

I sold the car as is, with pictures of the dinan intake on it, so I figured i should be honest and give the intake with the car. Buyer ended up passing on the intake to somebody else pretty fast.

Got to talk to the neighbor with the 3.0 CS

That car is ridiculous. Original paint, original interior, original wheels, etc... The only thing modified was the radio. The chrome trim pieces were like mirrors, and the interior showed not even a bit of wear. The car only has 68,000 miles on it, and seems to be perfect running condition. The owner daily drives the car as well.

Completely different than the 3.0CS, the E90 Kalim was working the other day was the most disappointing car ever.

-Besides having an ugly beige plastic cover over the valve cover, the actual valve cover has a light moldy brown and scratched up appearance to it because it is just bare magnesium. It really looks like poo.
-Serviceability of the engine was crap, as Kalim can confirm.
-The engine bay aesthetically looks horrible because every area is just filled with hoses, wires, or plastic.
-The sheet metal in the engine bay is full of various unused mounting holes and brackets.
-Everything is needlessly complex and expensive.

I washed my car earlier today. The other day I bought a bottle of Megs Ultimate Quik Detailer and used it after the wash. I thought that I noticed a difference (the paint looked smoother and deeper), but was convinced that it was probably just in my head.

Everybody in the house asked me if I waxed my car because it looked so nice. I guess it wasn't in my head.
