You openly admit your creation is pretty sketchy rather than trying to arguwe how it's perfectly safe.

You are the best kind of DIYer. I mean that in all seriousness.

Finally changed out my DISA valve, old one was completely rubbish.

The color on M52 DISAs are funky is all I can say. Can't wait to give it a drive and see if there is a difference...

Power steering reservoir and attached hoses
Radiator, lower and upper hoses, thermostat
Fan blades
Ambient temp sensor
Wheel well covers
Oil separator
Degreased engine and undercarriage

Whew....... I guess I'm good for a while....

the 68s and 105s are 17"s, and I contemplated going to a square setup with another set of Style 105s, but the 18" 162s showed up on CL already with tires, Hankook Ventus V12s, for $900, so I could not resist. Definitely worth it!

Sad part was that after I put the Style 105s on, I found out the lower control arms were shot, and they had to be replaced. Car has been realigned after they were replaced, but it was too late. The front tires corded on the inside edge. I have to replace 'em before I put 'em back on my Z3
