Last week...




Fun fun fun...

Almost 100 miles on the new clutch, she feels great! It would have taken much longer and probably wouldn't have been done as well without a good friend and fellow e46 fanatic... It's good to have friends!

No ****, I just only ever get mine 1 or two notches up while those are almost at the top. Are you guys using the reinforcement plate for a center jack point and see-sawing it up higher?

I hope you changed the LEDs too? Because the red lighting + blue needles generally results in an invisible needle at night.

Bought more parts for my cooling system. Just want to go on the record and say that after 10 or more orders from ECS and dozens and dozens more from other vendors, ECS is by far the slowest to ship their product.

Just the flash giving a weird reflection, does not look that way in real life. And yes, already swapped over to blue leds for display lighting etc.

I agree. ECS is by far the slowest shipping. One time they even FORGOT to ship my order.

They do have a great site and catalog though and will own up to any mistakes. They're just kind of too big and generic to provide good service. I still would buy from them but only for certain parts.. their prices are pretty darn good for some items. even cheaper than the dealer in a lot of cases (for comparable OE parts)

You lose your avg mph, mpg etc but everything else comes right back. The difficult part is that you have to put the rings on inside the cluster without removing the plastic shield, not too hard but slightly awkward... just be prepared for knee jerk criticism from naziesque black/white conformist haters who voluntarily drive convertibles (omg lulz, icing on cake... ssssthuper!) and helpless trolls (oooo, I put a mango on your car, wheeee, click my sig threads and win a prize! lol you are so ghey), aka, have fun and good luck, I'm sure it will look cool. Post a pic. People not obsessed with slurping man-goo's member will appreciate.
