Took the drivers door apart and tightened the window to the regulator. The bolt tightens the opposite direction!!!

I hate it when the window rattles.

No, not even that. The idiot only included the dice box and the iPod cable. No way for me to hook this thing up at all.
I've still yet to hear from him.

Changed oil to Mobil 1 0W-40, and replaced the oil psi sensor. Now I no longer get the 'low oil pressure light' when the engine is warm (oil temp over 200 degrees) at idle. Beauty.

I suggest this for an inexpensive, effective headlight polish/restoration.

Just installed adjustable rear lower control arms. SPC - I wasn't worried about weight, just wanted to correct some of the negative camber to help save my tires. Used a very good DIY from here.

Let's see today I painted my lame as5 titan-shadow trim which scratches very easily to a nice highly metalic gray charcoal. Looks sweet and tough as nails. Tightened my ebrakes up so that it works with my newly installed ZHP 6-speed tranny!

Filled her up and took her through the car wash...

Flame away, she's 7 years old with 90k, lots of chips on the front end, the auto carwash isn't going to hurt. It would probably hurt more to let the bird poo stay on the car long enough before I can find the time to hand wash her.

Need to condition the sides of my seats again, where it rubs on the plastic is so annoying. I can't ever seem to remember to look for some felt strips at walmart to cure the problem permanently...

I drove home from my private contract LE post managed cruise along my normal hiway home. I rolled right with the wide on ramp to the major N/S connection when a deer darts 100 yars across four lanes in front of me.....yea i'm safe!.....as the deer freaks at the fourth lane over and darts back i have no choice at 70mph than to make broad side look at me in the face pepperoni smash the BMW play time! F F F!

hit a doe....at 70mph...legit broadside hit with face stare....deer smashed and slid down road....ZHP pulls over as coolant flows.....flatbeaded to Achbach Auto Industries Columbus Ohio.....and 8K$ later we will see what happens...

Fin' animals

doesn't the state own them or something ?
