My Ride: 2000 323ci ZSP
Road Trip

Got home from work on Friday. Put my driver's side, mechanical seat back together after a re-stitch then it was off to Florida. Word of advice. Don't take your seat apart!

ROAD TRIP!

This is my first BMW and having owned a lot of cars over the past 30 year's, wow to hop in a car with almost 200,000K (it's been maintained with no expense spared by the previous owner and I'm doing the same) and go to Florida, normally I'd say no way! But she's a runner! Even the wife commented on how nice a ride it was, and she hates all my cars!

Happy Holidays!

Repaired the vacuum line between the SAP and the rear of the motor and replaced the fog light. On the way home I lost yet another expansion tank so I will be repairing that when it warms up a little here in Maryland. 27 degrees was just a little cold without a garage to work in...

My 2000 323i has been retired as a daily driver so I keep her clean and covered, sheltered from the weather. So today I took her out for a drive in the sun. We drove about 100 miles in total mostly on the highway (80+ MPH) with some windy roads thrown in just for fun. I think she liked it. I know I did! Isn't that what they're for?

Replaced rtabs which was a pain without the tool. Oh yea i forgot to release the emergency brake so the one side wouldn't lower. Spent a good two hours before i realized this smh but because i changed rtabs i realized i have broken rear springs.

Couldn't help myself with the new move trailer on TV, you've seen?

No doubt... has anyone EVER actually put together a manual type list of things it can/can't do or places you can feel free to poke around and places you should be very careful not to unless you really know what you're doing? Certainly would be nice, and I started poking through the first few pages of the *OFFICIAL* BMW Diagnostic Scanner PA Soft 1.4 Thread, but 15 pages later I've only gleaned a little, and I can't read all 60+ pages to try and figure it out unless that's the only way... any recommendations certainly appreciated!
