Installed OEM M3 mirrors today. Also installed color-matched reflectors (used OEM reflectors and had them painted imola red).

today i leveled out the brake fluid, actually filled the tank for once.

then i got mad because i figured out why my steering wheel always felt so funky; the PO or the dealer ripped off the leather that covered the wheel.

its feel great, maybe hard to shift (i run out of clutch - so maybe this is the problem) its more prestige and "clicky"
ive the 545 shifter too (performance shifter at ecs i think), but first i want to give a chance to the low shifter
its much better then stock
1 to N in stock = 1 to 2 gear in this shifter.

My Ride: Imola ZHP
Yesterday: Made the call to get the $$ to pay her off...

Today: Took her to the dealership for a free rear-subframe inspection, ordered Passport 8500 x50 Red as pay-off gift to her...

Tomorrow: Pick her up from the dealership, oil change (in my garage), taking the front wheels/tires to the tire shop along with a non-bent wheel. Will have the front tires "rotated" from side to side since I have to pay to mount and balance one, might as well do two and get a few more thousand miles out of the front tires. Keep bent wheel as a souvenir...

Next Week: Receive the check to pay her off, deposit check, pay off car...

Next Weekend: Camping Trip...

Week After That: Start ordering 100k mile maintenance items...

Installed booster seat. Got to drive 90 miles from the upper keys to Ft Lauderdale. Now my gf's sons mouth goes way faster. Going from a baby seat to a booster I guess he can see a lot more. He usually sleeps most of the way. So many questions. I guess that's what you do at that age.(He's 3)

I had a row of LEDs go bad on my first set of EEs. Khoalty switched it out with a new one which was cool.

I washed and gave my car a nice wipe down today.

Having a new windshield installed. Since I do most of my own work, having a dealer do this will cause me some pain!

My Ride: Facelift Coupe
I got it back! After not having it for a week and getting a new radiator, condenser, fog lamp, grille and air duct, I drove it through the country and had a Sunfire try and take me. Saw nothing but my taillights as I put it in 2nd..
