Ever stop to think maybe he has a "fan club" for a reason? Looking at your post history you have offered nothing to the community other than badgering people about what wheels look cool and giving a definitive DIY on how not to wet sand your paint.

Zing. Nice one.

I know it's been tried a couple times already, but back on topic? Maybe? The other stuff really should either be a separate thread, or PMs. I kinda like seeing what people are doing with their rides

In our couple day hiatus, I worked on the 545i. New alternator, water pump, belts and radiator.

Yesterday, I replaced the gas cap, and fixed my license plate bulbs. The terminals were badly corroded and the bulbs blown. I don't think they've been working since I got the car.
