Started pricing clutch components... Its actually difficult to bargain shop for the 6-speed clutch, grr, I wont give up!

Hoping to save and purchase before she goes out so that I can have the parts on hand when she does go out. She's chattering in reverse only, hopefully she'll last a few more months...

My Ride: '12 135i DCT
Today I gave my car the full P21S treatment. I cleaned the wheels with P21S Gel Wheel cleaner, washed it, used P21S Paintwork Cleanser and followed that up with their 100% pure carnauba wax. You can feel the paint is now free of contaminants when you slide your hand across it, and the wheels look truly stunning. I am extremely satisfied with the P21S kit. Wish I had some photos but it's dark.

Their wheel cleaner is godly.

Ordered new windshield cowl, inner control arm ball joints, and a Valentine 1 and remote display.

Yesterday I pressure tested my tubing, fixed a boost leak, changed front diff fluid, and installed the new BPV.

We all know how "lifetime: the fluid is (it lasts right up to the point your driveline fails, hence lifetime).
