Added a quart of oil, washed my car yesterday and took her out for a good spin. Felt great driving my car again.

I added rear seat cup holders to my car, following a couple of DIYs from this site. I love them.

Re: * What did you do to/for your E46 today? *

Booked her in with my mechanic to get the cooling system sorted and hopefully stop her from overheating.

Yesterday I replaced plugs, plug leads, water pump and both belts.

I fit my mtech bumper when I first got it. i put it in my sedan which doesn't have fold down seats I had to scoot back the passenger seat and I laid it on the front dash and the very back of my rear seats
