Subframe inspection came back negative . . . & I'm not sure how I feel about it; having a loaner for a few weeks would've been nice! But I got a free wash out of it, & with her 135s on, she's looking gooood! (I also got to sit in the showroom's '11 M3 . . . those seats are so )

Tinted taillights and add M3 style lip:





What do you think about the reverse light area? I thought it was different. I think I like it, but still unsure. What do you guys think?


Also, I'm thinking about repainting the lip black. Thoughts?

Had it towed home last night after my belt ripped a hole in my lower radiator hose. Fortunately, I had ordered the ECS cooling system maintenance package and have all the parts for it sitting at home. Should be able to replace the pump, belts, hoses, expansion tank, and thermostat tonight.

Fought a losing battle, to resist the urge to hit 115 on the open freeway.. It doesn't matter what mood I'm in, as soon as I back out of the driveway, all is right in the world

Replaced FCABs with poly from ESS Tuning. What a difference!!!


Oh, and tried to replace front wheel bearings, but replacements were sh!t. Duralast bearings are a no-go on our cars.
