Just bought our car a couple weeks ago.
So far I've done all the work myself except the tires:
New tires.
Replaced nav unit.
Changed control arm bushings.
Replaced oil filter housing gasket.
Replaced vanos line.
Replaced O-ring on bottom of expansion tank mount.
New clear side markers.

More to come....

This weekend's plans include:

1. Replacing the intake boots. I have a tear in my lower boot at the branch for the ICV.
2. Replacing the Vanos Seals with the kit from Rajae.
3. Replacing the tattered driver's side A pillar with the new one from Tischer.

What did you have done?




I'm going to clean up my car a bit later, a lot of brake dust on the front wheels.

Coils as in spark plug coils? Why? Those are pretty much NOT necessary to change unless they are bad, but it's usually only one that goes.

2 of the coils were bad. Figured I'd change all 6. Don't want to have to go back for another misfiring cylinder

I posted this in my other thread, but I installed a 50 dollar lip on my car today. Looks good til I can get my hands on the hamann mtech2 front lip.

i'm contemplating if i want to paint my grill black. the silver makes my car look 100x cleaner, but the black makes it look 100x aggressive.

not sure if i really like the black grill on silver, i'm 50 / 50 on it. ill probably just plasti-dip it, or buy a set from ddm.

I used to have chrome grills, going to black was a night and day difference
