If they did, I commend them because I haven't had the courage to clean that corner until today.

Are you installing them yourself?
Truthfully if I winter drove this car, I wouldn't have purchased the ST coils.
With the free shipping, 15% off the already discounted price, and the fact that I drive beaters when it snows, that's what made me purchase them.

With the new strut hats, I won't have to compress the old struts or even take them apart for that matter.
That leaves me the option of just swapping the OEM suspension back in if I ever decide to drive my BMW during the winter.

I will be installing them in my garage after I get the car e-tested and put back on insurance.
The only thing keeping me from doing all of this is the paintwork my Acura beater needs.
Can't sell it in its current state for the money I'm looking to get

My Ride: Fst'r then your e46
Day 2 of detailing, did the driver side, compounded and polished. Polished the hood again because like an idiot I started to wipe it down with a dry towel
Sunday morning, will do the passenger side, and wax the whole car

Removed the sunshade and saw the metal piece wasn't too bent so I'll be able to repair that. Got into the car tonight and saw the SES, DSC, and EML lights were on. Looks like I'll be cleaning the throttle body and ICV tomorrow. That probably explains why I have a high idle on cold mornings.

Lol I'm an idiot. I ran the car too low on gas. Filled her up with Shell 93 and all the lights went off. Don't think I'm gonna test that theory again.

Changed my rear pads and sensor. My.dash light is still on tho, I've replaced the sensor before and know how to clear the light. Why isn't the dash light turning off tho?? Maybe I got a bad sensor??

Put the key in the 'on' position with the drivers door open. Do this until the light turns off. Takes about 45 seconds.

Make sure the key is in position 2 first and then open the door it's only suppose to take 40 seconds but mine took a good 2 minutes

Looks good my friend. Can't wait to see it in the next meet. I am looking for 18s to put on soon after some other maintenance.

Sorry had to do the VANOS along with the group without you.

40 seconds feels like 2 mins when you're sitting there waiting and waiting for the light to shut off
I can't remember if I opened my door first or not.
