Replaced DISA
Installed new fuel pump

I love how strong she starts up now and that low quiet hum the engine makes now with zero rattles anywhere

Put a new air filter into my SF. (that is a Subaru Forester). Too hot to do anything else.
But since the SF dealer quoted me $750 for the 30k service (almost all inspections--except new spark plugs-required at 30k, & trans fluid) I am reading up on what needs to be removed from engine compartment in order to get to the spark plugs.

tires

Put a set of 225/50r16 on my 328 today from walmart. Only 426.00 for kumho ast seems to be a good handling tire for those on a budget

Cleaned off massive amounts of seagull poop off my hood.

At friend's beach house for the past two days and the seagulls raped me

I figured most of the friction would come from the pieces that I didn't plasti-dip. Thought it would hold up better this way. I know it stands out now but I'll be adding more black to the interior to try to bring everything together better.

Finally got the last CEL out by replacing my faulty MAF sensor; now time to enjoy the increase of power from the M54B30 block and 330i crankshaft newly installed.

Was going to wash her but the line was long at the car wash. Filled her up and went for a nice 50 mile drive

Ah, I thought you just replaced the cupholder itself with a black one.

The little tabs are removable and interchangeable if you ever come across a different color one in the future.
