Turns out another car ran over it.




Nothing like that. See above. I have a few theories but I'll wait for Romeo's legal advice before saying anymore.
That whomp-whomp-whomp you heard was the lugs backing out and the wheel coming off. Miles and I were talking about that the day before your incident.

Once they're loose, the rotation causes the bolts to keep loosening on one side of the car.
Some cars used to have the lugs reverse threaded on one side to prevent it from happening.
We use conical seats now so the problem mostly happens if the lugs aren't tightened in the first place, or if they're worn out.

****. i need to get INPA running on a laptop again. ****.
Diagnosis time!
Multiple random misfires probably means a large problem like CPS, bad fuel, charging system, etc.

yeah i'm thinking it's a possible grounding issue.


Hey guys, did anyone want my black m3 headliner parts? i'd need stock grey color pillars + some cash in return. asking ANYONE reading this thread. let me know. i have the headliner, sun visors, alarm dome (used less than 2 months), third brake light cover (used less than 2 months), switch panel (used less than 2 months), c pillars (great condition), oh **** bars (used less than 2 months), coat hangers (used less than 2 months), i have A pillars but they are not in the greatest condition. in order to complete this would be B pillars, sunroof slide and trim. lmk.
