Cleaned up the interior and it's spotless inside. I'm going to wash the car tomorrow and maybe clay it, debating that.

Sorry to say but I will be selling my E46 probably this summer.

I have the LEXOL leather cleaners, it's not that bad but it's overpriced that's for sure. It's good to remove dirt from the leather at least.

Changed the oil and filter, 0w30 Castrol Syntec European Formula. Mann filter. Wash and clean interior. Good to go.

My Ride: e46 2002 facelift
I just asked my mechanic to remove the pin pf my air conditioning ventilation (the one inside/behind the engine) that controls the outside airflow..

Its very trafficy down here and I hate sniffing at other people's exhaust.. And despite putting the control to not let any outside air come in, I still can smell it (some crept in I guess)..

So I hope this is better now..

Just detailed inside, and cleaned the rims and windows. Not enough to actually clean the outside but the inside is spotless! Bought some Mothers for her!

My Ride: has a tailgate
Replaced all four power steering hoses & the reservoir. DIY went very smoothly. Had a dripping pressure hose, so I decided to replace everything while I was in there.

Also put in a new passenger's side brake cooling duct and the wheel well panel that it sits next to. PO must have smashed the crap out of both parts.

Removed an unnecessary relay causing my passenger headlight to flicker. Re-wired some shoddy wiring that a body shop did several years ago. Replaced plastic grommits and re-installed interior trim that came loose. Cleaned interior. Engine detailing.

Amazing weather.

zip-tied my external temp sensor to the foglight wiring and ziptied what was left of my passenger side splash pan to the bumper, I love how the end of my street recently developed a pothole deep enough to make an xi on stock suspension bottom out

Removed the straight pipes and glass packs and replaced the setup with a Magnaflow exhaust. So much better. It was unbearably loud with headers and the previous setup. Sounds so much better with the Magnaflow setup.
